    Hawaii Qualification in May now officially confirmed

    With my 2nd place at Ironman Western Australia, 2nd place at Ironman Malaysia and the 6th place at Ironman Brazil Latin American Championships, by the end of May I had scored already enough points to be safe for one of the 35 spots that are given to the female professionals to qualify for Hawaii. 

    With the first cut-off being end of July, I received the invitation this week. I am very happy to be part of the most important race in the Ironman circuit. However I keep on the hard work, as I not only go there to participate! 



    Recovery and local racing in June

    After racing Ironman Brazil it took me quite some time to recover. Pulling out a marathon PB in combination with the fastest bike split of the day left some fatigue in my legs. Thus training wise the weeks in June were pretty easy going. 

    While recovery was priority number one, I did not want to miss the Bocholter Aasee half distance mid June. This is where my bike sponsor is located and where I meet many friends cheering for me and racing with me. Two weeks after the Ironman, the legs were still tired, but I managed to establish a 10+ minute lead after the bike and were happy that I did not have to run any faster than my marathon pace to secure the win. 

    The week after I was on the start line of another half distance. Friends of mine lined up with me at the Steelman in Steinbeck. We had a great day. Though the top speed was still missing, the run felt nice and comfortable. I was happy not to bring the same heavy run legs that accompanied me the week before. With a course record I also won this race.


    My Tour de France

    End of June I joined the cycling team Essen Kettwig for their annual Tour de France. While we could only follow the real TDF from remote, we had a fantastic time. Great team, great rides and great weather. It was such a nice breakout of the structured interval training I follow normally. Keeping fit while mentally being in holiday mode. I could recharge mentally and brought home some extra power in my bike legs. 

    On the way back, I decided not to fly home, but spend the weekend in Damp at the Baltic Sea. The first edition of the OstseeMan half distance was on and I have not been at this part of Germany before. It was a fun weekend with fish rolls and pop music at the beach. 

    The race itself went ok for me. My swim was not good and my legs were a bit fatigue from the French mountains, but I managed to work my way through the field to secure a podium spot. I can highly recommend the event for everyone looking for a good race with holiday flavour.

    Ride - 04/2017: The PIKES PEAK 3 EN in a test of the Ride magazine

    Verdict: "The Pikes Peak is without doubt a well-designed enduro bike with a high fun factor. The PROGEO system impresses with easy handling. You can feel a big difference between the settings high/steep and the low/slack, yet there is hardly any difference between the settings in-between. The bike gets top marks for workmanship, equipment and price."

    bike - 09/2017: "VERY GOOD" for the PSYCHO PATH 2 in a test of the bike magazine

    Verdict: "The Psycho Path from the company from Bocholt is an agile 29" hardtail at an attractive price. Despite a lightweight carbon frame, you do not have to make any compromises regarding the equipment. Those who find the geometry too sporty, can switch to a shorter stem and wider tyres with a deeper tread."
