IMSA 2009

News Index

Well, it’s just over 2 weeks to go now till race day, and it can’t get here quickly enough.

The competition will be strong with 4 IM Champions all vying for the title.

Last years winner, Stephen Bayliss, is back and looking for a repeat performance.

He had a super 2008 season, with several podium finishes. He is pretty much an all rounder, with superb swim and running legs,, so will always be a threat on race day.

Gerrit Schellens, who was forced to withdraw from last year’s race due to injury, will be back in an attempt to repeat his 2006 and 2007 wins.  He will always be a danger man on the run and is bound to be up there again this year.

Marino Van Hoenacher, a 2 time top 10 finisher at the World Champs in Hawaii, and 3 time Champ from the IM Austria event is probably the biggest threat for the title on race day. This will be his first race in IMSA, and being a great all-rounder, will be up near the front from the start.

Another athlete to watch on race day is Olivier Marceau. Olivier, although a newcomer to IM, has a string of titles to his name in all shorter distance triathlons including Exterra.

And Raynard, all I can say is Raynard is very ready for IMSA and is in excellent race shape.

His training has gone well and everything is on track for a great performance on race day.

It will be a very exciting days racing and one not to be missed.

Bring it on!

Feeling stronger and fitter and more in the "right head space" - I had done some great training over December spending many many many (and many more) hours on the bike - I loved it. My swim was starting to click, I was starting to understand the phrase "feel the water", and my running was strong
