Race Review - June 16-17th 2012
Challenge Aarhus, Denmark
Sunday June 17th
Distance: 1.9km swim • 90km bike • 21.1km run
The Baylisses met the Challenge at Challenge Aarhus this weekend! Bella had a great racing collecting another podium on her journey back from having baby Charlie less than one year ago. Stephe had some trouble with a bike crash but battled his way back and finished in 5th. While teamTBB Swiss training partner, Reto Hug had his first Challenge win. Reto will be dabbling into the long distance racing this year, and we all think that the boys should be afraid very afraid as this speedster takes his talents long.
Bella has just been consistently improving and finishing on the podium. She is starting to feel like she is training well and balanced being a mom and full-time pro triathlete. Stephen showed his courage as he battled back from adversary to still have a great race. When asked, Charlie said he was very proud of both his fast parents and can't wait to give them a run for their money in 20 years.
It was a pleasure doing such a welcoming and well organised race in a beautiful part of the world."
Stephen says, "I had an ok swim and and decent bike ride, at half distance on the bike I crashed in the rain on a corner. I didn't feel too bad after the crash, and came off with 6 others at the end of the bike so it came down to a run race between us 7, but on the run I felt very stiff and it was a hard slog. But I pushed on the best I could and finished in 5th, I was very pleased to see Bella running along very well and closing on all those in front."
