Vansbro half ironman & Swedish TT champs
This weekend ended up being the yearly Vansbro half ironman in Sweden and the Swedish Masters Time Trial and Road Race.
Vansbro turned on a stunner of a day with the temperature over 20degs and near perfect condition for the hundreds of athletes. The race also doubles up as the Swedish long distance Championships.
With another half Ironman next weekend, we only had Minna competing in the race this time. With most of the others choosing next weekend’s race. Minna ended up finishing 3rd after a strong bike and run combination and only 1min from 2nd place.
We had Joakim racing the Swedish master’s championships. After a strong time trial, he finished 3rd over the 30+km TT course. Finishing around 1min behind the winner Jan from Sundsvall, Sweden. In the road race, he rode strongly with a 2up 80km breakaway with his breakaway companion finishing with silver. Joakim, unfortunately, fell to stomach cramps and finished off the podium.
