Race Report – Swissman Xtreme Triathlon 2016


Being back in Ascona was very pleasant. The historic and charming, yet stylish and well-groomed Swiss city, right with the border to Italy, was just as beautiful as I remembered it.

Race report – Ironman 70.3 St.Pölten


Konkurransen startet på verst tenkelig vis. Jeg forsov meg til ikke mindre enn kl. 13, og måtte bittert se på at konkurrentene løp rundt uten meg. Neida, det var bare marerittet jeg hadde rett før vekkerklokka ringte kl. 04:15 og jeg faktisk sto opp 😉 Svømmingen Konkurransen startet vel heller ikke superbra i virkeligheten. Vi … Fortsett å lese Race report – Ironman 70.3 St.Pölten
