Andreas Raelert starts into the new season in Cannes

Wednesday 12 April 2017
This Sunday, Andreas Raelert makes his debut race of the new season at the Cannes International Triathlon. This competition will be his personal year-opener in 2017. "I have done a lot of training hours during winter," says Andreas Raelert, "the more I’m looking forward now to my debut race of the 2017 season."

Last year, Andreas Raelert ranked third at the Cannes International Triathlon. "It was a very challenging and fast race," he looks back to this event, "I do have very good memories especially due to the good organization of the race and due to the race course." Only the weather has not been optimal in previous year, and Andreas Raelert was missing some freshness on the final run kilometers to catch up with Frenchman Etienne Diemunsch and Giulio Molinari from Italy.

Andreas Raelert is thinking positive about his second start in Cannes, and he is full of confidence. The fourth edition of the race will offer a strong professional line-up including not only two-time runner-up Giulio Molinari and his fellow countryman Alessandro Degasperi. Moreover, there are some other fast athletes at the start line, in addition to strong local heroes the are the two Germans Sebastian Kienle and Maurice Clavel among the favorites. For sure, they want to make the race fast on the tough course which consists of a 2 kilometer swim, a 95 kilometer bike ride and a 16 kilometer run. "Especially, the bike course with 1500 meters of climbing is really demanding," says Andreas Raelert.

The race leads the field from the Côte d'Azur to the Alpes-Maritimes and then back to Cannes. It is a tough course, but this race means a great pleasure for Andreas Raelert, too. During winter, he worked hard in various training camps in Lanzarote to get ready for the season. "I am curious to see where I am with my training," says Andreas Raelert, "it is the first race of the year, and you are always very excited to start into those races." Andreas Raelert would like to start into the new season in a convincing way.

Andy Potts (USA) proved once again he is a brilliant race tactician at the 70.3 distance. Exiting the water first with three others, Potts took the initiative to pushed the pace early on the bike and broke the field up in the opening half of the bike. Now the front of the race had been reduced to three and Potts fell back to let the pair of Felipe Barraza (CHL) and Felipe Van De Wyngard (CHL) that accompanied him to share the work load up front. more

Andrew Starykowicz (USA) put his stamp on the race early as he was in the first group coming out of the water and he quickly pounded his way to the front of the bike in the opening miles. Starykowicz recorded one of the fastest IRONMAN bike legs ever (4:01:15) and dismounted his bike with a huge 13:04 advantage on his closest rival. This outcome was an incredible feat considering Starykowicz had to overcome a horrific accident when he was hit by a truck in August of last year. more

Alistair Brownlee is set to make his debut over the half distance at Challenge Mogan-Gran Canaria. The dual Olympic gold medalist is testing himself over new distances this year. While he has already competed in a somewhat long race like the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon where an Olympic-distance 1.5-kilometer swim and 10-kilometer run sandwiched a 100-kilometer bike ride, this will be Brownlee’s first start in the 1.9-kilometer swim, non-drafting 90-kilometer bike ride, 21-kilometer run for more
