After recently returning from their altitude training camp in St. Moritz, Timo Bracht and Horst Reichel participated in their last test races before the big highlight of the season, the DATEV Challenge Roth. After finishing first and second, respectively, both are looking forward to the big test in Roth.
"Rheinauhafen Triathlon in Cologne just three weeks after the altitude training camp was an experiment, but in the end it was successful. Despite training very hard I was in good shape. I felt fresh and was able to go to the limit in all three disciplines" said Timo Bracht immediately after the Olympic distance race in the cathedral city. After the swim, Timo Bracht was some 40 seconds behind Johann Ackermann and Christian Otto, who went ahead after a very strong swim. "After three of the nine laps on the bike I was able to close the gap, yet because of the almost 18 turning points on the course it was very hard to gain an advantage", explained the TEAM SPORT FOR GOOD athlete.
