After the second duathlon in Horst aan de Maas of this year’s Powerman Series, the European Championship titles went to the 2010 top-ranked Powerman athletes. The winners were again Frenchman Anthony Le Duey and for the women Camilla Lindholm of Sweden.
Anthony Le Duey easily maintained his European title. The Frenchman was more than three minutes faster than 2010. About 3 minutes behind the Belgian Wim De Cort won 2nd place. Third place went to Dane Peter Bech.
Best German was Zoltan Senczyszyn from Cottbus coming in on 5th place.
Women’s Camilla Lindholm needed two minutes more than 2010. The Swede, however, defended her European title with significant lead (2:29 mins). This time before the two Dutch women May Kerstens and Maud Golsteyn (the latter already won 3rd place in 2010). Best German athletes were on 5th place Beate Görtz just before Ulrike Schwalbe on rank 6.
