• Not Made For Walking: Lars C. Pedersen

A SPONTANEOUS HALF IRONMAN RACE BY LARS C. PEDERSEN

Last weekend Lars was spectating at the IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship in Helsingør. He was very inspired by the many cool SAYSKY stars and the fantastic comradery that he witnessed. You can check out the pictures and read about the experience here.

This also made him realize that he missed the thrill of racing. His last triathlon performance was at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii in 2015. Therefore, he decided that it was time to get back in the water and up on the bike again. So with no training other than the occasional marathons and weekly running sessions, he signed up for Øresund Triathlon on Sunday.

SUNDAY RACE TIME AND COMPETITION

Øresund Triathlon is a local triathlon race, located just north of Copenhagen. The start is at 7.00AM (CET) and you can keep track of Lars as he takes on the half ironman distance. He'll race with bib no. 67 and there'll be live tracking here.

As already mentioned, it has been quite some time ago since Lars has been swimming or cycling, so it'll be very interesting to see what the result will be on Sunday. He has raced the Øresund Triathlon on several occasions, always finishing Top 10. This is also where he had his triathlon debut in 2011, with a finish time of 4h22m. In 2014 he put down a PR here as well, crossing the finish line in 4h16m.

THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO WIN THE AERO SUIT 2.0

So what will his time be on Sunday? You have the stats above, although it's been a while, so they might not mean much. On a side note we can tell that his IRONMAN PR is 9h11m. He'll race in the new Splinter Aero Suit 2.0 and one thing is for sure: it's not made for walking!

Go to our Facebook or Instagram pages and place your bid in the comment field. The winner will be awarded with the brand new SAYSKY Aero Suit 2.0 - Splinter or Sky Captain - the choice is yours. Needless to say, but the bid must be placed before Sunday, 7.00AM (CET).
