Vive Barcelona

Only 4 weeks after Almere I choose to put Ironman Barcelona on the program. A little risk with the recovery after Almere I wanted to take since my season was a success anyways and this could be a good test that might turn out in a ‘finishing touch’. However, the recovery didn’t go as fast

You can in Almere

After Prague and Finland I slowly got back in the real race-shape. I started feeling stronger and wanted to race for a podium in Almere after finishing in 5th place last year. I always enjoy racing in Holland and Almere is extra special to me. The swim was quite relaxed. I swan in the lead

What goes down must come up??

Sometimes thing go without saying. Swimming lanes and feeling like you can go on forever, riding the bike without any effort or running as if you’re flying. Unfortunately, sometimes it also ends up being the other way around. Then getting ready for a bike ride is already difficult and leaving to go to the pool

Beating Records in Roth

To be part of the big boys you gotta look for the big boys. That’s why I chose to start in Roth this year. The organisation raised the prize money which ensured me of a strong field, and that it was. Additionally, Roth is known to have a fast course, which I found interesting as

Dutch National Champion and Geraardsbergen

My last update has been a while ago, which doesn’t mean I have been lazy those last weeks! After a great period in South-Africa I hoped to wrap it up with a *bang*, but that didn’t work out like I wished. A few days before the start of Ironman Port Elizabeth I ended up in

3rd Place in East West London Best!

The Ironman 70.3 East London always takes place early in the season. Because I picked up training rather late again after a long holiday, it was unsure if my current shape would be sufficient. Depending on how well the training was going I would decide whether or not to start.  I was able to do

Icing on the Cake in Thailand

After a long season I planned a little race to “seal the deal”; half Challenge Kanchanaburi. A race in the Thai heat and humidity was new to me, so now it was the end of the season that made for a good chance to test it and see how I physically respond. A week before

Dutch National Champion 2017!

After Frankfurt the next goal was the European and Dutch championship long-distance triathlon in Almere. The plan was to start 2 more races in between these, but we eventually decided to completely focus on Almere. After a good trainings period and 2 “small” races as a speed stimilus (3rd place in 2nd Bundesliga and 4th

Party in Frankfurt!

Port Elizabeth opened my eyes and made me hungry for more. It was a good race, but I also realized I could do a lot better. After some doubt discussion I eventually decided to participate in Frankfurt. Again 0ne of the strongest full triathlons in the world, but if you want to reach the top

Lucky #4

A 4th place can be a bit furstrating as it is just no podium place. But last weekend in Luxembourg I was happy with it due to the stable race I put together. Swimming and cycling was nothing crazy in a group of around 10 men. Nowadays you often see that the difference is only

Nothing in Nieuwkoop

My preparation was far from optimal. After my first full distance in South-Africa I took it easy for 3 weeks, then I was able to train a bit again for a week and got sick. It took a while before I got into it a bit again after that, training still didn’t really go well

Experimenting in Ironman 70.3 East London

Not completely at my best I appeared at the start of Ironman 70.3 East London. The problem with my knie was solved just in time before the race, but it cost me quite some training.   On the run I came short to really join the leaders, I eventually finished 6th. The race went as

Beers in Slanghoek

Last sunday I participated in the Jailbreak triathlon in Slanghoek/Snake Valley. This race was close to Stellebosch and so I made it into a nice trainings stimulus. The distances were 1.3k swimming, 84k bike and a trailrun of 18k. So almost a half triathlon. The race took place at a beautiful location on winearm in

Whining in Walchsee

After my crash in Samorin I did not recover as well as I hoped. It took a long time before I got back to training on normal intensity, this appeared not to be enough for the EC half challenge. Nevertheless, I went off to Austria to give it a shot. Satisfied with my season I

The Best Horse in the Stable

Last sunday I participated in a really nice race in Samorin, Slovakia. Without getting paid to say this, I would recommend everyone to do this race! The athmosphere was great, everything was well arranged. The days before the race I was able to train outside in a 50-meter pool while watching the olympics on big screens

Good Times in Fredericia

After the nationals in Klazienaveen I was able to train hard for a period and take some well-needed rest after the many races I did. The preperations for Challenge Fredericia were perfect due to the nice stay with Carsten and Dorthe (thank you!!).   In Klazienaveen I learned my lesson, so I stayed calm on

The Donkey and Klazienaveen

Last weekend I would finally get the chance to make up for my 2nd place at the Dutch nationals half distance last year. But you don’t always get what you want.. For financial reasons I might have started too many small and unimportant races… The Dutch national championships in 2016 turned into a repetition of

A Home Race in Didam

In preparation towards the Dutch nationals in Klazienaveen I decided to take part in the half triathlon in Didam. During the race I could feel that the intense race planning I have been running is starting to work out on my body. I am starting to feel tired. Nevertheless, I had a good steady race and

The Win in ICAN(‘t) Amsterdam

There is already written a lot about this race and the bad organization. I can say that I had a nice sporty day and that I was lucky to have had a motorbike and cyclist in front of me (to tell me where to go). Without them finishing would have been a lot harder. Despite

6th place in Ironman 70.3 Kraichgau

Already a week after Nieuwkoop I planned to start the Ironman 70.3 in Kraichgau. There was a strong field, amongst others, Boris Stein, Sebastian Kienle, Pieter Heemeryck and Markus Fachbach took part. “This was the first time I was in for prize money in an international race like this.” The day before the race I explored

Win in Good Old Nieuwkoop

The 29th of May I took part in the half-distance triathlon in Nieuwkoop, where I succesfully debuted on the half distance in 2014. The goal for this race was mostly to experiment with some adjustments in my nutrition. I promised myself not to go too deep, because next week I will start another half-distance triathlon

The Drama of Aix-en-Provence

A race that I had great expectations off, but that eventually turned out into a big dissapointment. Despite the great weather in France the days before the race, on the day itself it had completely shifted for cold. There was a strong and cold wind that made the hours before the racestart terrible.   At

2nd Place Israman (Eilat, Israël)

New season, new chances! After a season full of bad-luck races in 2016, I am ready for 2016. The season kicked off early with the Israman in Eilat, Israël. It turned out to be a triathlon of extremes. Although the weather in Israël was a whole lot nicer than in the Netherlands we had to
