Challenge Roth this weekend - Guten Tag (Hello) from Germany!

It's great being back in Roth, Germany for my 4th time. I first raced here in 2001 and 2002 and then came back after 10years to race last year and I'm back again for this years event. It will be another tough race with a great field assembled here in what is the biggest Ironman event in the world with 3000 individual athletes and over 600 teams. The weather has been great since I arrived and they are expecting pretty good conditions for Sundays race. I'd love to go close to breaking the magical 8hr barrier as a 41year old but the conditions will have to be perfect for that.
Race day starts at 6:30am(local time) or 4:30pm Sunday afternoon in NZ. Just check out the race website for all the latest updates which should be exceptional http://www.challenge-roth.com/cockpit/index-en.html
