IRONMAN 70.3 THE WINNERS ARE KUOTA AND BOECHERER
KUOTA 2015: #Kuotacycle has been successful again in an Ironman 70.3 thanks to the German athlete Andi Boecherer, who won the race in Aix En Provence test in France in 3h:57’:21”. For Boecherer, who faced the bike course on a Kuota KT05, this important result brings him back to international top level after his accident in the Carribean last year which caused him to take a long break. The challenging swimming performance and a perfect cycle race set the foundation for the thrilling sprint against Boris Stein before he finally raised his arms in triumph. The third position went to the Swiss athlete Jan Van Berkel. “A huge success – was the athlete’s first reaction – and my aching legs are the proof that I’m not just dreaming. The race on Sunday was my first competition after my accident last year when I was run over by a car. It was tough to reach top level again.”
“For our company, who has a very strong and technical interest in triathlon, this success is of particular importance – precises CEO Maurizio Canzi – our new products KT05 and Kalibur have been developped to offer the best possible support for the athletes of this triple competition but also for the road racers. At the Giro d’Italia, our latest Kalibur model will be launched.”
