I've just received my Start Place confirmation for Ironman Europe.
The 9th Ironman Europe will take place in Roth on July 14th. The
Triathlon has set a new world record, even before the first wave of
swimmers run into Rothsee at 6.30 am in the morning. A record number
of 2450 triathletes will participate, starting in 6 waves, with an
interval of 10 minutes.
Participated also in the game last year, and i don't think there are
any better place to do an Ironman. Last year the police estimated the
numbers of spectators to 130.000.
If anyone would be interested in a race report, then send an e-mail,
and You'll receive my personal racereport approximately one week after
the race.
