TriesX Cross Triathlon Sardinia
TriesX Sardegna First Edition Cross Triathlon. 3 months before the event, a friend from Italy calls me and asks me if I would be interested in coming to Sardinia at the end of October, a friend of his is organizing a race. Sure, I love Sardinia. So it went to the Italian island on October 27th. I met a lot of nice Italians there who took care of me. Everything has been thought of. Flight, transfer, apartment, full board in the restaurant and above all a perfect race track. There I met friends from Switzerland, Portugal, the USA and New Zealand. All also cross triathletes. Together we weighted the track and had a lot of fun in the days before the race.
On Sunday October 31st, I started the race with the number 6. There was a 1km swim, 24km mountain biking and 7km cross-country run to deal with. I came out of the water in 29th place and was clearly behind the top. Once again I showed my strength on the bike in this long season. I felt good in the technical single trails in continuous rain and came back to the transition area in 5th place. The run was also wonderful, led close to the sea, across the beach and back to Marinella. However, my legs were no longer the freshest and so I had to give up another position, this time I couldn't go any further and I finally crossed the finish line in 6th place.
