Andreas Raelert announced today that he is going to “race” IM Regensburg this weekend. He has the points to make it to Kona but has not finished the mandatory IM in 2011. He rather raced Roth three weeks ago and that quite fast (7:41h). He’ll make it a long training day and expects to finish MOTP. And for every athlete who “beats” him he says, he’ll donate 10-20 Euro for a charity that his fans on facebook can dacide on. He expects to raise some EUR 10.000-20.000.. this way.
So whoever of you is racing Regensburg: Go beat the potential Kona champ!
I think that’s not really what WTC intended with the new KPR system. and Andreas is the first favorite for Kona who decides not to race the qualifying race and rather took home some good appearance money at Challenge Roth.
