Ironman 70.3 Pays d'Aix

10. May 2015 - 1 month and 18 days ago

Beautiful yet relentless would best describe the Ironman 70.3 Aix-en-Provence bike route. It is 90km of constantly changing gradient, varied road surface with extremely technical flat and downhill sections, all of which present a test for which only the triathletes with the strongest legs and the best bike handling skills need apply. After a solid 1.9km swim, Michi entered T1 just over 3 minutes behind strong biker Andi Boecherer. and then put together a cycling masterclass to put himself firmly in contention. A minor recent injury flared up on the run putting paid to a podium but that is sports at the highest level. But now lets take a look at Michi’s SRM power file and I’ll try to unpack exactly what is required to nail the fastest bikesplit in amongst a field of very strong professional triathletes.
