Böcherer Is Ironman 70.3 Euro Champ

Wiesbaden, Germany – Andi Böcherer continued to add to his brilliant 2011 campaign, taking his second Ironman 70.3 at the Ironman 70.3 European Championship.  The 28-year-old German took control of the race on the bike leg and never looked back, taking the win in his home country.
Böcherer was part of a 14 man lead group entering T1, and he quickly established a lead on the bike.  The bike course, which had nearly 5000 feet of elevation gain, was covered with a light fog, so once riders were up the road, they were out of sight.  Böcherer utilized his aerodynamic position aboard the Felt DA to put time into the field on the downhill sections, and entered T2 as the leader and recording the fastest bike split of the day.
