9th Ironman title for Frederik van Lierde
The Belgian 2013 Ironman World Champion added another major title to his impressive palmares by winning one of the toughest triathlon races this past weekend.
Throughout the entire race Frederik was always among the leading athletes before he finally took the lead from German Christian Kramer during the second half of the marathon and gained the victory in Puerto del Carmen (Lanzarote) on this 40th birthday.
Lanzarote men’s top 3:
Frederik Van Lierde (BEL) 8:51:16
Christian Kramer (GER) 8:56:08
Emilio Aguayo Muñoz (ESP) 9:00:55
Frederik’s suit of choice for Lanzarote – The All Out Speed Suit
Due to the conditions and meters in altitude (resulting in a longer race duration) there is hardly no other race where race equipment plays a stronger role. For this reason Frederik opted for the comfort and aero benefits of the All Out Speed Suit.
