Racereport by Javier Higuera :
I debuted on Sunday at IM-Switzerland Thun. A great place and great weather for this unique occasion.
The swim course was very short (3km only), but I swam very comfortably and went straight to the course that I had already inspected in June. During the first hour I was overtaken by many triathletes despite going stronger than planned. I tried to forget about the others and stick to the plan. In the second lap after the accumulated effort, I no longer needed to regulate my power…
On the run I had a good day. The course had too many changes in surface and direction but I managed to overtake many of the strong cyclists that were walking then. I enjoyed it a lot until km 24. From that moment on I started to suffer, but the desire to finish, family and friends supporting me and the aid stations helped me to reach the finish line.
