We are very excited today to see three of the team take on one of the first races in the 2016 Tri season in Europe in Austria at Ironman 70.3 St Pölten. It’s an interesting course. The swim is in 2 freshwater lakes with a 200m run between, the bike course is not flat by any means. A 1-lap bike course with altitude of 1024m over 90km with two climbs after 25km and 65km just to sap the legs a tad before the 2-lap run along the river Traisen.
It’s very exciting to see Moo, Chicago and Amertime racing again Live Tracking!
Marcella Moohan F40-44 (No.412)
Can’t wait to see how Moo gets on today. She’s been in the the team since 2012 and has raced consistently over OD distance in the local races, no stranger to half ironman distance either, her first being IM 70.3 Mallorca in May 2014, Dubai International Triathlon in Nov 2014, IM 70.3 Bahrain in Dec 2015 and now another race in May… I see a pattern developing here 🙂 She’s certainly in good form on the bike… can’t wait to see this race unfold. Go Moo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Glen Osmond M45-49 (No.1759)
The last time I saw Glen was in Chicago last September when he put in a superb performance over the ITU World Championship Sprint Distance finishing 15th in the very competitive M40-45 field. Looks like he’s just moved up an age group too. I know Chicago has been a sprint racer for years but I also know he did pull an impressive performance over the half distance in IM 70.3 Budapest in 2014. Has raced 70.3 previously, dabbling in 2011 in Phuket and interestingly Glen has raced IM St. Pölten in 2011.
Amer Alaily M35-39 (No.1178)
No stranger to this race…it’s Amers 4th outing in St. Pölten. Racing previously in 2011, 2012, 2014. Amer and Glen are long standing pals so it’s good to see them reunited and racing again 🙂 I remember the first time Amer raced here.. not the result he was after with an Amertime on the run, anyway he’s certainly not scared of falling on his sword, and finally cracked it in 2014. We love watching Amer race as you never know what you’re going to get. Have a great race Amer 🙂
