Clemente Alonso and Eva Wutti break the time at IROMAN Barcelona

Both triathletes have managed to break the record of the test that was already broken in the last edition.

Yesterday, the first edition of the IRONMAN Barcelona in the Catalan town of Calella, where heavy rains forced the delay of the test.

Near 2.500 triathletes from 59 different countries faced the 3,8 km of swimming, 180 km of cycling by the Maresme region to finish with 42 km of running race along the coast.

Clemente Alonso had in his possession the best record in this circuit in 2011 until last year that Sergio Marques broke the record.

Triathlon in its purest form, so it can be called what we saw yesterday in this test, where the winners of this edition Clemente Alonso (8: 04: 13) has managed to break the record of the last edition that got Sergio Marques (08: 05: 21). For its part the Austrian Eva Wutti (8: 49: 21), has returned to beat its own brand achieved in the last edition of the Challenge Barcelona (08: 51: 01).

Already in the race, Clemente Alonso completed the 3,8 km of swimming at the head. In a rapid transition, the Italian Alberto Casadei was the first to start the cycling sector.

During the 180 km cycling sector Alberto Casadei, Konstantin Bachor, Bas Diederen, Mark Oude Bennink, Andres Niedrig and the Spaniards Clemente Alonso and Miquel Blanchart imposed a strong pace that allowed them to take the lead in the race. Finally Kostatin Bachor with a great rhythm managed to get the first to the T2 followed by almost 6 minutes by Clemente Alonso, Niedrig, Blanchart, Diederen and Alberto Casei.

The race on foot was exciting from the beginning as Miquel was trimming the 6 minutes of advantage he had over the Dutch to be placed in the head next to him, Cemente was also cutting until in the third round the two Spaniards were placed at the head of career.

From there, it was a duel between the two, who were together until the last kilometers where Clemente made an attack that allowed him to reach the finish line alone and get the new circuit record with a time of 8: 04: 13. Miquel Blanchart (8: 04: 38) entered the finish line at 25 seconds and the third final position went to Kostatin Bachor (8: 09: 42).
