It wasn’t any difference between the last two competitions as the weather conditions were almost the same.
“Kings Land” Triatlon took place in Oradea, Romania. Gaining experience from the previous triathlon, I focused more on the cycling part of the competition as it represented about 50% of the final time.
I swam in the local lake without the neoprene suit as the water had 18 degrees Celsius. Swimming in fresh water represented an even harder challenge for me, therefore I finished in 21 minutes.
Cycling (28 km)
This race was shorter than usual, but had a 250 m level difference. I rode with an average of 19 km/h.
Running (6 km)
I had 6 one kilometer laps and I was able to sprint in the last lap up to 16 km/h during the final kilometer. I finished in 36 minutes.
My final time of 2:39 placed me on the 3rd position. I gained 20 points, having a total score of 46 points until now. In addition to this, I took part at the same time, in a relay race with my dad (@ cycling) and with a friend (@ running). That was possible wearing two chips for the two different categories: the individual and the relay race. When I finished swimming, I gave the relay chip to my dad and I went on to cycling. They had a total time of 2:38, thus finishing on the second position.
Completing this two stages allowed me to stay on the podium.
