Before the IRONMAN 70.3 Ruegen started, all eyes were on Patrick Lange. Five weeks out from the IRONMAN World Championship, the question was not if Lange could win in Ruegen. The question was more about how fast and impressive the defending champion would be at the Baltic Sea coast. When Lange’s compatriot Florian Angert exited the water 40 seconds in front of the chase group within Lange and some fast others, there was no discussion if the defending champion would catch up with him later. more
