Compressport Pro Athlete, Swiss Ruedi Wild came to the IronMan70.3 European Championship in the middle of an altitude training camp in the mountains of St Morritz (Switzerland). The pro field was of really high quality. Ruedi went out of the water out of Top10 with 59” deficit on the leader (M.Kueng).
On the bike, German Maurice Clavel set a really high pace and took the lead. Ruedi made a big move to 5 that km 20 riding with Boris Stein who started the bike with 2’50 deficit! Stein continued hammering the bike leg and took the lead.
Ruedi arrived at T2 with the chase group with 6’30 down to Stein and 1’35 on the second, A.Raelert.
The two first athletes were untouchable. The fight for third was between Ruedi and Frenchman Anthony Costes. Ruedi secured his 3RD place with 6k to go, signing the fastest run split of the day (1h13’37)!
This result is really good and Ruedi shows he is in good shape 20 days before the World Championship at Zell am see (Austria).
Congratulations from the whole Compressport Team!
