Very happy to take the win in my first race of the season ‼️✅
The race consisted of a special format with all disciplines performed separately. Swimming 500m in the swimming pool. Then a break to get in some calories followed by a 24k bike race on a local course with 5 times a short steep hill to climb. The hill was brutal as some strong riders tried to make the race hard. Also, bonifications points were to be gained at top of the hill for the 3 fastetst riders each lap, awarded as seconds distracted from your total race time. This was soem fast but fun racing. Unfortunately, I took no bonifications points. Again a 1h break and then time for some fast running. The run leg of the race was a 5k offroad run with about 50% uphill. Before the run, I was about 13 seconds down on the overall leader in the race so far, so I had to make sure to run away from my closest competitors. I had good feelings on the run and was able to take enough advantage to take the overall win!
So the first race of the season was a succes in terms of performance as well as good vibes with the team mates who also performed briliantly! It was a super strong effort of our team SP&O Cornelis bedding triathlon team with a clean sweep of the podium and 4th place 🔥👌 with myself on the top spot.
