Argonaut and five-time triathlon World Champion Terenzo Bozzone took 1st place at the IRONMAN 70.3 Miami yesterday.
Dominating Bike Split
Terenzo literally dominated the men’s race on the bike with an average speed of 46km/h on the 90km-course with a by-far-best 1:57:33 bike split.
In 5th place coming in transition 1, Bozzone overcame his 10 seconds deficit to build a 3:14 lead with his stellar bike split, and then held off a strong run to finish in 3:42:10 with a 2:25 margin of victory over Rodolphe Von Berg of the U.S., 3:19 over 3rd-place finisher Franz Loeschke of Germany, and 4:22 over 4th-place Michael Raelert of Germany.
“I had a pretty good day,” said Terenzo. “I dropped the group which had some strong cyclists at 10km and got a 5-minute lead coming off the bike. Also ran quite good and kept it fairly steady.”
