More than just a tradition, Ironman France Nice is almost a legend. This year too our pro athletes stole the show and one man was going to make history!
Name : Van Lierde Surname: Frederik
It all started with a 3,8 Km-swim in the Mediterranean sea and in the top 3 who exited from the waters was Frederik at 00:49:21. The lead was enough for him to believe that the 180-Km bike run could take him even nearer to an overall win. In full control of his pedal pushes he managed his lead to the finish line in a tremendous 04:39:00, almost 15 mins ahead of the runner-up.
Once on his 42-Km run Frederik Van Lierde did not look back! Focusing on each meter ahead of him, soon the kilometres became just a piece of cake. In 2:57:19 he ran away to his 4th victory on the Ironman France track. He shared the podium with Italian Alessandro Degasperi (2nd) and French Denis Chevrot (3rd).
With this great victory Frederik is sending a signal that the World Championships will have to count with him!
