Thomas Hellriegel gets third at Rothsee Triathlon

Thomas Hellriegel gives his account of his impressive 3rd place finish in the Rothsee Triathlon in Germany:

My latest race was the Rothsee Triathlon on 27 June. Roth is in the south west of Germany, close to Nürnberg.

The Rothsee Triathlon is an ‘old’ race which took place this year for the 22nd consecutive time, and with 1400 athletes competing it's more popular than ever.

I was 3rd after the swim and 2nd after the bike with a 59:38 minute time (including the transition) for 40km in the hills of Frankenland. That was the second best bike time of the day.

During the run the temperature reached over 30 degrees so everybody was suffering with the heat. I lost a place in the run, so I ended up making the podium with 3rd place overall.

Next is the Challenge Roth race on 18 July, where I'll race for BR3's relay team (Bavarian TV station).
