TriAddict on pre-race examination…
It happened: I went out for my run. So I went on and… as promised had a look at Challenge Roth swim exit…
Ok, maybe too cold for Challenge right now… then again here we have the bike transition zone:
So on I ran towards the area of Rothsee Triathlon Festival. Rothsee is still covered with thin ice – almost looks like my cold experience on the sprint race last year.
Looking straight forward I look at the bike transition of the Olympic distance race and along the run course:
Returning back to Hilpoltstein I had some interesting talks, met Coach Ralf and his wife afterwards and had a chat with Claudi in the “Zwinger” – if you ever come to Challenge Roth: go there for dinner, have a beer and tell her, where you learnt about her.
