Patrick Lange is a two-time Ironman World Champion, and would love to make that three. He’s done a lot of preparing, knows the bike course really well (check out the bike he will be riding here), and is energized by the new challenge of racing for the world championship in Nice. Patrick thinks this course suits him better than Kona, and as he says: “It’s go time, and I am happy.” In other words: look out for Patrick on Sunday.
