For the majority of the field at the 31. Triathlon Echternach, this year’s edition was a particularly tough and slow year of racing. All three disciplines were impacted by heat (38deg) and clearly slower than normal. Nothing slows a race more than hot conditions, all the more so if they’re sufficient to result in a wetsuit ban.
Sam Peters managed to stay cool by showing a very steady and strong performance resulting in a good 18th overall position out of 93 finishers. Next X3M athlete was Pascal Duhautpas, who finished 35th, shortly followed by Danièle Flammang on 37th overall and winner of female F45 category. (4th female)
