Racereport by Oliver Godart :
Yo had a nice 1st place AG and 2nd AG overall yesterday at inaugural @xi’an70.3 in China. A 36h downpour prior and throughout the race made swimming impossible. The resulting duathlon in true chasing style made up for it. Rain covered roads made it slippery like ice on the flat smooth course. The picturesque winding and slippery run through Xi’an park was quite beautiful as well as punchy with small but steep climbs. China’s best middle and LD triathlete Peng Cheng Li and my self battled it out for overall AG but since start was staggered i ner really knew where he was at. I had a sloppy t2 and i think that cost me. I am happy and congrats to Peng Cheng Li and also Aivaz Omorkanov who completed the podium. Very happy with my race in THAT rain and cooler temps. Now on way home and back training tomorrow.
