Offensive race tactics on Sunday

Andreas Raelert: “I want to fight for the title”

Strong competitors especially on the bike – Event in Carinthia enjoys an excellent reputation

Klagenfurt. For the first time in his career Andreas Raelert will take part at the Ironman Austria on Sunday. "I was looking for a new experience this summer – after I was allowed to experience four great years with my starts in Frankfurt and Roth," the 36-year old says before the competition in Klagenfurt. "Everything I've heard from other athletes about the race in Carinthia was very positive," says the world’s fastest athlete on the Ironman-distance.  "The Ironman Austria enjoys an excellent reputation because of its organization, the race course and the intense atmosphere of this event.”

The current vice World Champion in Ironman racing wants to soak up the special flair of the traditional race at Lake Wörthersee in Carinthia this weekend. "I have a close relationship to Austria through many competitions and training camps and I’m really looking forward to competing on this well-known fast course," says Andreas Raelert overlooking the brilliant winning streak of Marino Vanhoenacker from Belgium between 2006 and 2011 as well as Marino Vanhoenacker’s race record of 7:45:58 hours in 2011. "Marino had a phenomenal race in 2011, his performance has my full respect. But I do not concern about this record before the race. Every competition has its completely own conditions. On Sunday I want to focus on the fight for the title."

Andreas Raelert had a successful start into the 2013 season with a win at Ironman 70.3 New Orleans. He has been preparing specifically for the Ironman in Klagenfurt with training camps in Boulder, Colorado, and in his home city Rostock. "Not everything went perfectly," says Andreas Raelert, who had to undergo a dental surgery a few days before the Challenge Kraichgau in early June. "Although there were minor handicaps in my preparation I am very optimistic that I have a performance level that is equivalent to my strength in the past three years."

On Sunday Andreas Raelert faces a strong pro field that will make the Ironman Austria fast from the beginning. The Estonian Marko Albert, who already was third in Carinthia in 2011, is likely to set the pace in the water before attacks can be expected on the bike – from the strong cyclists Philip Graves from Great Britain and Maik Twelsiek (Germany). "I expect a tough pace on the bike," says Andreas Raelert. He wants to tackle the race focused and offensive – and set his mark in the marathon.
