Ronnie Schildknecht 4th in home race

8. June 2015 — Triathlon Team

The three time winner and local favourite did a solid race this weekend at his home race the 70.3 Ironman Switzerland. Only 3 weeks after his 3rd place in the North American Ironman Championship in Texas, he showed again a strong performance and confirmed his good form in the lead up to Ironman Zurich.

In the calm lake, called Obersee, Ronnie Schildknecht had a decent swim (1,9km: 24:23). He left the water in 8th position 2’15” behind the leading duo Manuel Küng & Martin Bader. On the bike, Ronnie quickly moved up to the ‘Swiss-only’ chasing group behind the sole leader Manuel Küng. Together with Ruedi Wild, Mike Aigroz & Jan Van Berkel; Ronnie Schildknecht (90km: 2:09:28) entered T2 on 2’50” of Manuel Küng. The run decided on the battle between the Swiss for the podium. Ronnie Schildknecht (21,1km: 1:17:23) was still felling the fatigue of his latest Ironman and had to let go the three others to finish on a solid fourth place.

Happy with the result Ronnie Schildknecht, who was still recovering from Ironman Texas 3 weeks ago, was really satisfied with the result: “First learning, never race 3 weeks after an ironman. Honestly I am really happy about the race. The swim was very solid. I could bridge the leading group very fast. I stayed in the bike group with Rudy & Jan. I didn’t have the extra power to leave them behind. Actually, I was happy to be in that group. On the run, I tried to go out steady. I failed a little bit. I tried to get Jan and take the 3rd place. Of course the 4th place is always unfortunate, but it was the maximum I could do today. I am really happy with this result.”
