Germany’s Boris Stein and Denmark’s Camilla Pedersen earned the wins at Sunday’s Ironman 70.3 European Championships in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Stein got the win thanks in large part to a dominant performance on the bike. His day was made up of a 27:19 swim, a 2:15:51 bike (the best of the day), and a 1:16:51 run, putting him across the finish line at 4:03:08. Germany’s Andreas Raelert was solid across swim, bike and run, giving him the runner-up spot at 4:05:03. Former Olympian Ruedi Wild (SUI) was third at 4:07:30.
Pedersen put together a 27:36 swim, a 2:40:31 bike and a 1:24:10 half-marathon, giving her the victory in 4:36:04. Germany’s Anja Baranek posted the fastest bike split of the women (2:39:48) on her way to finishing second at 4:40:29. Belgium’s Alexandra Tondeur rounded out the podium at 4:43:14.
