Currently, I’m in Port Elizabeth, South Africa doing final preparations for my season opener. It’s always better to do a low key race first, but this time that was not possible and I’ll open the season with the most competitive race I’ve took part in. Ironman South Africa got promoted to African Championship this year. With increase in KPR points and prize money came very deep and strong pro field.
Training went great and I feel I’m in the best shape so far. I hope to show that tomorrow. There will be live coverage starting at 6:30 CET at ironman.com.
