Last Friday, despite all the World Cup triathletes being in Antwerp, these were the 2 fastest bikes of that weekend. In a car, stuck in traffic that wasn’t moving trying to get to athlete registration. We took an executive decision to dump the car and grab the rental bikes. We made it with 1 minute to spare avoiding being awarded a time penalty before even starting the race.
Afgelopen weekend zagen we heel wat enthousiaste gezichten passeren op onze tijdlijn. Zowel de IronMan in Luxemburg als de triathlon in Antwerpen zorgden voor heel wat sportieve hoogtepunten. Wie van jullie is volledig verkocht voor triathlon? Of toch liever gewoon fietsen 😉?
after a terrible 100 meter swimming the other 900 meters went very well the 40 km cycling went well until after 20 km I had a flat tire still drove further and the 10 km went happy without errors 😁#portofantwerptriathlon#antwerptriathlon
Have enough courage to start and enough perseverance to #finish 🏊🚴🏃. ."Wait a minute looks like ... yes we still have somebody from the quarter triathlon approaching... #Antwerp why don't you give him an applause he deserves it too" exactly what I was thinking announcer 🏁 last man finishing within the limit of 3h25m with a time of 3h17m. I could have drunk a beer the last lap 💪😘👍
To be honest with you I had set my mind on 3 hours for my first one but of course the race did not go as planned. To give you a taste of it here is my coverage. Obviously I swam in the wrong direction not once but twice and like any newbie the law of you will be smacked in the face a couple of times during the swim also applied to me. I spend almost 10 minutes in T1. Nope I did not play cards in transition but next time I will. There are circumstances that I get rid of my clothes much faster as you can imagine. On the bike I felt like remi's all alone in the world but at least he had a dog. As I did not find a group anymore to cling on to for the cycling I faced the wind alone for 40k just to find out that half of the running course is on cobblestones and I don't exactly fly over rocks. What were they thinking spooked thru my mind a couple of times. Is this a Flemish classic? Just a long read to say it was fun and all is forgotten and forgiven because I did it, did not quit and I finished it so I guess I'm not a trivirgin anymore 🤘🏊🚴🏃🤘
