Congratulations to Teamtbb pro athletes, Diana Rielser and Andrej Vistica on their podium finishes at the Chiemsee Triathlon in Germany.

Suffering from a foot injury, Rielser decided a few days before the race to enter the short course triathlon. Riesler, exited the swim 2 minutes behind the leader into cloudy and rainy conditions, the rain however did not stop Rielser from taking the lead on the bike entering T2 in first position with a 5 minute lead. Rielser followed this with the fastest run split taking the overall win. “The swim - which was the driest part of the race I a strong swim and lost less than 2mins to the leading woman. The first 10 kilometers on the bike were dry and then it started to rain like crazy! Normally I hate to cycle in rainy conditions but today it made it so much fun and I enjoyed every minute on the bike. With a 5 mins lead I entered T2 and all were confused because they thought I’m a relay runner;-) I finished the race with a solid run while enjoying every minute of this race and happy to have my first race win of the season.”

Teamtbb pro athlete, Andrej Vistica, took 3rd place in what was a strong field of professional athletes at the Long Course Chiemsee Triathlon in Germany this weekend. Vistica exited the water in 9th place just one minute behind the lead group. Vistica followed this up with a blistering bike giving him the 3rd fastest bike split of the day. He finished posting the fastest run of the day, coming in just 3 minutes behind the leader, German Pro athlete, Marcus  Fachbach. “This race attracted more than 900 competitors and quite a large pro field. I did this race as a last check before Challenge Roth. After exiting the water in 9th place, about 1min behind the lead group, I had the 3rd fastest bike split and fastest run that brought me 3rd place overall. This was my best race so far this season and a good sign for races to come.”

Teamtbb Country Coach,Joseph Spindler, took 7th position overall in the short course while elite development athlete, Markus Hormann, unfortunately had to withdraw from the race after an incident on the bike.
