ALANYA WORLD CUP 2014
In Alanya, Turkey, I felt very comfortable for this World Cup Race and loved the weather with temperatures around 30 degrees in the air and 29 degrees in the water.
A storm dislocated the start pontoon on evening before the race; therefore we had a beach start with two laps to swim. I made it into the first pack of the field.
On the bike the field cycled all together due to the flat and easy course, it was not ideal for breakaways. So 42 men remained united in the lead peloton for the remaining six bike laps.
On the 10km run course I felt very tired and did not have the legs I was hoping for. I finished 37th and I was quite disappointed with my result.

The support in and around the race was amazing though. Thanks a lot to all my supporters! Really appreciate it.
Next race: Triathlon World Cup Tongyeong, South Korea, on the 18th October 2014
