"S70.3nd at Indian Wells today for my first XNUMX. I swam good and was pushing good watts.
With 10km to go I still had a 2 'lead, but then a car hit me and I hit the ground really hard. I jumped back on my bike and made it to T2 with @lsanderstri.
My career was just a fight and my only goal was to reach the finish line and get a check-up with a doctor.
Congratulations to Lionel for the win and @jellegeens for finishing third. "
