Michael Raelert: Next exit Ballarat

Second start in Australia on Sunday – 34-year old wants to win Ironman 70.3 Ballarat after his success in Mandurah – Looking forward to race every single race

Ballarat. Michael Raelert makes ready for his next Australian race. On Sunday he embarks on another triathlon journey Down Under at the Ironman 70.3 Ballarat in the South-east of Australia. The 34-year old starts into this race highly motivated after his success at the Ironman 70.3 Mandurah in Western Australia last weekend. "The victory in Mandurah was a great experience for me,” says Michael Raelert, “I hope that I can manage another fast race on Sunday. The last few weeks have been very intense, but I still feel good and I’m really looking forward to race every single race. It's a great feeling, that I’m able to bring myself back into a good position after my long break.”

In Ballarat Michael Raelert wants to celebrate the fourth consecutive win in the fifth race after his long break. “The last races have been pretty good," says Michael Raelert, "at each competition there were small things that worked better than in the race before. I would be a happy man if things would go on like that on Sunday." However, the Rostockian faces a strong field on the flat and fast course in Ballarat. Former Ironman 70.3 World Champion Terenzo Bozzone from New Zealand is on the start list and as well Australian Luke Bell, who finished fourth in Mandurah. Next to them there are Swiss Ruedi Wild and Josh Rix (Australia) among the fast athletes on the professional start list.

After the race in Ballarat Michael Raelert will then return to Europe. He wants to recover from his Australian double pack there and to prepare for the Challenge Bahrain. On December 6th he will race the middle-distance event in Bahrain.
