Thomas Hellriegel on Clallenge Kraichgau:

Last weekend I raced at Challenge Kraichgau. More than 3500 people raced (incl relay and a Olympic distance in the afternoon).

After the swim (1.9km) I was in 6th place and after the 90km bike ride (with more than 1000m of climbing in 2:16h) I was in 4. Place in a very strong field. Only Normann Stadler (2x Ironman Hawaii  Camp), Michael Göhner (Winner of Challenge Roth 2009 in under 8h!) and Francois Chabaud (best French athlete on half distance) were riding
faster than I did.

Unfortunately I have had some problems with my left heel over the last weeks, so I was not running much… I dropped back to 10th place in 4:04:45h for this hard Half-distance.

Very strong field: Rutger Beke from Belgium was only 11. Place. He was 2nd in Hawaii two years ago and many times Top 10 there… Luke Dragstra (Planet X Teammate) was 13th place in 4:11hr.

I was riding the Planet X Stealth bike and did 2:16:38h for the hilly 90km and
Luke 2:19:57h. Maybe next time I'll give the brand new Exocet bike a go...
