Mr. Powerman Joerie VANSTEELANT
The reiterate winner Joerie VANSTEELANT (BEL) won his sixth title at POWERMAN Austria Duathlon in Weyer. The old hand started the race in his usual style and demonstrated again his great class. “It was very hot, it must have been the hottest race in Weyer I every participated in. I faced a few problems after the second split but it all went well after I drank bottle of water.”

The Dane Søren BYSTRUP gave an impressive comeback after a long pause from POWERMAN Austria. He became runner-up with a deficit of only two and a half minutes after VANSTEELANT. “I was very surprised to reach the finishing line as runner-up, I did not expect that. I am very satisfied with my today’s performance and perfectly ready for the World Championships in Zofingen.” The third place was reached, as it was last year, by the Frenchman Anthony LE DUEY with a deficit of six minutes.

SVENDSEN (DEN) again sole lead
The jubilant winner from today’s POWERMAN Austria, the Dane Susanne SVENDSEN reports her personal fight against the heath on the running track. “It was again a very hard and especially a very hot race here in Weyer. I was sweating and crying. But then I pulled myself together told me: there will be Zofingen in two weeks which will be even harder. You wanna win here, now stop crying, get a grip and run. And that’s what I did.”
