In 50 shades the Ironman series definitely will be during the whole year of 2017 but this weekend we already had a glimpse of some of them – in Taiwan, Campeche and Puerto Rico.
Several Compressport Athletes dared to test their potential on these Half-Ironman tracks and they prove no less but impressive and have, in their respective compressive gear, performed to the finish line brilliantly!
It seems nothing is going to stop Ruedi WILD!
All things come in threes apparently – and even more may be – for Ruedi WILD. After a third place in Dubai, the great win in Subic Bay, Ruedi maintains his present momentum, and wins the Taiwanese edition, even though the challenge from a talented pack never receded.
His mind on the finish line Ruedi took his first advantage during the swim and bike runs. A boulevard opened ahead of him and he needed no more encouragement to run his best over the last kilometres of the triathlon and stopped the chrono at 3:42:55, almost 3 minutes ahead of the runner up.
Mauricio MENDEZ, the new Mexican gem, adopts compression gear
There`s nothing better for the morale than making the first best impression before one`s own peers. In Campeche, Mexico, Mauricio MENDEZ was at home and he did not let himself be intimidated by the high-class competitors who made the trip.
3rd after the swim event and 4th out of the bike race, Maurico, newcomer to the Compressport Team, stayed focused and put all his remaining energy in the last run and brings the 4th place home.
A great morning it was in Puerto Rico for the Canadian Team
And one of them was Taylor REID and not the least! REID opened his 2017 season with a great win, finishing his 3-course race in 3:49:50. The next runner-up, Andy POTTS, was 2 minutes behind.
Mallorca hosted the K42 Marathon
This mountain race in one of the prettiest parts of the Spanish island attracted some trail talents, two of whom, Casey MORGAN and Jordi GAMITO, flew high the colours of Compressport.
Jordi fought up to his last pace to bring the gold medal.
Unfortunately, Morgan had to abandon after an ankle injury.
Australia: Javier Gomez NOYA comes 4th in the Super League Triathlon
25 of the World`s best triathletes were reunited to run the 3-day race over various distances and handicaps each day. South African Richard Murray over-classed the whole pack to win the $100 000 pay check. Javier Gomez NOYA, Cameron DYE and Brent McMAHON were Compressport representatives on this Super League.
Trail World Championships – Pre-selection is ON!
And it all began on the tough track of Mount Ventoux, in Frane Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. The French Team had to earn its selection and our partners David HAUSS and Ludovic POMMERET had to put in their contribution. After his tremendous effort on last week`s Pierra Menta, Ludovic managed to take the 2nd place, enough to win himself a well deserved selection. David Hauss crossed the finish line at the 18th place.
