Powerman Zofingen: A Brief Report

As Ed mentioned last week, I did take on the Powerman Zofingen duathlon Sunday. I just got back to London and a reliable net connection last night. Short summary for those who didn’t follow via Twitter: Finish time of 8:54:01 for 150 kilometers of cycling and 40 kilometers of running. Bike course was three loops with three climbs per lap. The middle climb, the Bodenberg, was the hardest, the equivalent of MD 77 over South Mountain, if I was forced to make a comparison. Running was just straight out brutal, going up the side of a mountain for two kilometers each of the four times leaving Zofingen.

Other notes: Zofingen veteran John Phillips, one of the American stalwarts of the event, ran into a car that pulled out in front of him, according to fellow Yank Josh Beck on http://www.duathlon.com. Beck witnessed the accident, assisted Phillips afterward, and still managed a top 10 finish.

I’ll file a longer report soon.
