Bozzone Wins Third Race in Three Weeks

“The final race of the 3-week assault has come to an end. With another successful result I have managed to claim my 3rd win in succession at Ironman 70.3 Campeche.”
“The past week was a tough one which involved a long travel day from Argentina, shifting from freezing conditions to extremely warm conditions, managing my recovery in an effective way and managing my food intake (along with a couple other issues that arose throughout the week), all without getting sick or run down.”
“I definitely prefer racing in warmer climates. Campeche was a quaint town and had some interesting history with a small number of international tourists. As I have experienced in other Mexican and South American races, the Latin American fans are some of the most passionate in the world and this contributed to a memorable end to a pretty historic 15days of racing.”
“The start of the race was at the Campeche country club, which was a very beautiful venue. Ruby Von Burg got a small gap in the swim and I shared the load with Kevin Collington trying to limit our deficit and do some damage on some of the stronger bike/runners in the field.”
“Off onto the undulating bike course, I soon bridged across to Ruby at the front of the race and at Km 25 when I could see the rest of the fields’ time gaps, I decided that a little bit more pressure needed to be added. I soon found myself navigating the remainder of the bike-leg solo. Michael Weiss of Austria who likes the heat and puts together great races in Mexico, was 3minutes back with the final 30km and he would work to close this to 2 minutes coming off the bike.”
“The spring in my step was not quite there and was somewhat to be expected. I was hoping that it was going to be a scorcher, but it was not as hot as predicted and the pace had to be a little quicker. I seemed to manage my pace well through to 10miles and the gap to Weiss had bounced between 1 minute and 2 minutes. My legs were still coping and I managed to enjoy the final 2 miles home before breaking the tape for my 3rd win over 3 weekends!”
“With a bit of free time this past week, I accumulated some of my past results and this was a record Half Ironman victory number 32 (Ironman 70.3 number 27).”

  • Bozzone chose a Metron rear disc, a Metron 81 SL front and Trimax Areo Bars for this race
