IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship, Elsinore
Rodolphe von Berg made a brave move on the second half of the bike at the KMD IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship Elsinore. He knew about the running strength of Spaniard Javier Gomez and put down the hammer early to open up a decisive gap. The American came off the bike with a lead of 3:30 minutes over Gomez who laid down a 1:07:45 half marathon to take victory in 3:39:35 with a lead of 12 seconds.
Holly Lawrence (GBR) pushed the pace all day long in the women’s competition. She set the race on fire in the water and kept this fire burning on the bike. She finished the bike leg with a gap of almost four minutes and maintained her pace at the front of the race until she ran down the red carpet in 4:06:24.
