The triathlete Sebastian Kienle, for the first time in his professional career was sdriven by doing drafting at IRONMAN 70.3 St George which has been played this weekend.
This sanction meant a 5 penalty-box minutes leaving without options in the test, since if he had not received it with the end times he would have achieved the victory, since he came in seventh position at 4:17 of the test winner the American Rodolhe Von Berg.
In social networks the triathlete complained: "The photo shows the moment before my career at San Jorge went down the drain.
I got a 5min penalty, my first penalty in over 10 years of professional triathlon.
Yes, I agree, it was too close, but not because I wanted to, but because the cyclist in front moved to the left side of the road.
Of course these are difficult decisions and I like that the referees are as strict as possible so I think it should calm people down.
But for me, you get a penalty when you intentionally seek an unfair advantage or try to hinder someone. That's cheating and I didn't do it.
One of the main rules is: travel on the right side so that people can pass on the left side. IMHO, it could also have been a blocking penalty for the other runner.
Since I've always expressed my opinion on who is writing in the professional field and have never been shy about pointing the finger, go ahead, this is your lucky day. Comment below. "

The pic shows the moment before my race in St George went down the drain. I got a drafting penalty (5min) the first ever penalty in more than 10 years of professional triathlon. Yes I do agree, I was too close, but not because I wanted to but because the rider in front moved to the left side of the road. Of course these are tough calls and I like the referees to be as strict as possible, so I guess I should calm the f down. But for me you get a penalty when you are intentionally seeking an unfair advantage, or trying to hinder someone. That's cheating and I was not. One of the major rules is: ride on the right side so that people can pass on the left. IMHO it could have also been a blocking penalty for the other rider. Since I've always been very vocal about who is drafting in the pro field and never been shy of some finger-pointing, go ahead, this is your lucky day. Comment below.
