The Raelert-Brothers prepare in Boulder for the season

New Orleans: Andreas Raelert starts into the season

Boulder. Andreas Raelert will start into the triathlon season 2013 at the Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans next Sunday. The 36-year old world record holder on the Ironman distance has decided to test his fitness in this impressive race in Louisiana. "I’m really looking forward to taking part in New Orleans", Andreas Raelert says. He currently is in a training camp in Boulder, Colorado, to prepare for the season together with his brother Michael. "My shape is at a good level – and I really would like to have a test under race conditions.”

For Andreas Raelert, the high-class Ironman 70.3 event in New Orleans offers a great opportunity to compete at an early stage of the season with other top athletes. "This race seems to be a very nice one", the older one of the Raelert-Brothers says, "for me, it is a good opportunity to add a challenging and attractive competition to my stay in Boulder." This race will be the first one for Andreas Raelert since being runner-up at the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona in October 2012. "I am very excited to get back into racing", Andreas Raelert says. After the competition in New Orleans, the German will return to Boulder.

The Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans on Sunday will be the kick-off race for the team Raelert-Brothers – and it will be followed by other exciting competitions. On June 30th, Andreas Raelert will be part of the Ironman Austria in Klagenfurt. One week later his brother Michael Raelert will start at the Ironman European Championships in Frankfurt. On May 11th, Andreas Raelert wants to fight for the title at the Thomas Cook Ironman 70.3 on Mallorca – it will be the first european race of the season for the Raelert-Brothers.
