What a day, what a race…

The Mallorca Olympic attracted some 450 competitors. The day was made even more interesting with a down pour of rain, and although the weather wasn’t too cold, conditions could have been better for the draft-legal Olympic distance race.

The Swim:
An in-port 1.5km swim on flat calm water in the local bay, Patrik came out in 2nd of his respective race, leaving him to play catch-up on the lead guy.

The Bike:
Out of town, with a 40km out-and-back course to the next town was a little bit treacherous, the rain was getting heavy and was making conditions difficult. Patrik soon tucked into the 2nd (male) bike pack, but the lead biker was pushing the pace in both directions hitting T2 first.

The Run:
This is where we know that Patrik excels .. although it was a battle, Patrik eventually shook off his competitor on the final loop to take a comfortable win.

Final Time: 1:50:19
