Tondeur,Vandendriessche win IRONMAN 70.3 Luxembourg

Monday 19 June 2017
Belgian runners made their way at the IRONMAN 70.3 Luxembourg. In both the men’s and women’s race, strong bikers seemed to be on the winning track for a long time. On a warm and beautiful day, it was Germany’s Lukasz Wojt who impressed the most, reaching T1 about 2 minutes ahead of his chasers and pushing the pace hard on the bike. Although everyone was waiting for a big move in the strong chase group, Wojt held on to first place. He got off the bike with a lead of almost 3 minutes. The group behind him was full of strong runners, and Kenneth Vandendriessche from Belgium was the man to attack. At kilometer 8 he made the pass of the day to take the win. Bas Diederen (NED) fought hard to close the gap to the front, running into silver ahead of Tim Brydenbach (BEL).

As expected before the race, Germany’s Katja Konschak was in front in the water, but it was Susie Cheetham who moved into the lead on the bike. She started into the run with an advantage of 3 minutes over Alexandra Tondeur, before the Belgian co-favorite started to grab more and more time. On the second half of the run, Cheetham struggled a bit while Tondeur stormed to the win with the best run split ahead of the Brit and Konschak.
