Short, tough race on Saturday the 12th of July for three Pirates, with an overall time of 34min. Reward was the 2nd place overall in the mixed relay ranking. It was very humid that day, at such a lactate party…

Our swimmer for the 350m was Alena Schuß and fought her way up to the front, but sadly she injured herself after the 2nd round and lost some seconds in the transition area.



Michael Zanon rode the 8km bike part and rode full throttle all the way and was able to catch the rear wheel of the guy ahead of him. Sadly the guy knew the course better than Michael and was able to regain a gap between him and Michael. Note for the next time, arrive a little bit earlier to get to know he course



Fränk Ruggenthaler took the 2.5km running part and showed nerves and was able to defend the 2nd place until the finish. This 2nd place overall is a good sign for us, to participate here again next year.


In addition to that, Fränk and Michael wanted to run the Großglockner Run, the next day on Sunday the 13th of July. A 13km run with about 1400m of altitude, together with about 1000 other maniacs. Both finished with a time 1:55h. Well, as I said before this sport weekend is asking for repeat,           but maybe next year without bruises and blisters.
