Dirk Bockel opens the season in Abu Dabhi and will be direct rival of Eneko Llanos

The 35-year-old triathlete will debut this season on March 3 at the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon, and has finished second and third in the last two editions. Everything indicates that we will see a great duel between Bockel and Eneko Plains for the final victory.

Abu Dabhi is his first goal of the season, where the 200km bike circuit adapts very well to his conditions and the final stage of the race will be very fast from the start.


After taking the step from short to long distance (where he was an Olympian) his dream is to win in Kona, “It is where the myth of the Ironman was born. I finished fourth last year and I know I can win the race. Abu Dabhi will be a good test for Kona "

The next objective after this race will be the Ironman of Regensburg (Germany) that will be held on June 17 and once finished he will put all his strength in the Ironman World Championship in Kona (Hawaii) which will be held on October 1.

There are no previous results.
