Alessandro Fabian wins - 2010 Viña del Mar ITU Triathlon Pan American Cup

Monday, January 11, 2010
Alessandro is very happy with his result, he states after the race:
"After a period of constant training preparing the season 2010 my form is only up to 60-70 % - but this does not mean that I started the race less determined to win!
Until the very end the race was really challenging. The ocean had some waves, for me this was the hardest part.
We started swimming strongly right from the beginning, I was able to get into the leading group, tired but able to get out of the water among the first.
I did my best to change as quickly as I could,  grabbing the bike and leaving fourth.
Not saving any energy I stayed in the leading group until the second trasition. 10 more km of running ahead of me, I needed the first kilometers to find my rhythm.
In the final 2,5 kilometers I was able to make the difference, winning with ca 20 seconds ahead of Francesc.
Now I am looking with great confidence at the upcoming event in La Paz, Argentina next weekend.
I want to thank all my staff and all sponsors supporting me to make this  victory possible."
