Challenge Regensburg 2017 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

The main change compared to last year was a new bike course that led to considerably faster times. With the exception of the male swim (Sebastian Weit was 5 seconds quicker last year) and the female run (still a 3:08 marathon by last year’s winner Julia Viellehner) all course record were broken.

Male Race Results

For a long time Sebastian Neef was leading the race, posting the fastest swim and bike times. But last year’s winner Jan Raphael posted a 2:45 marathon course record to successfully defend his title, followed by Sebastian Neef and Chris Fischer.

Female Race Results

Late entry Diana Riesler completely controlled the race: After the fastest swim and bike legs she was already leading by more than 25 minutes, and extended that lead on the run to win by almost 35 minutes! Her 8:51 finish is a new personal best for her and the third time she went sub-9. Behind her the race for the podium was much closer, eventually Simona Krivankova was second in front of Erika Csomor.
