It was an exciting day yesterday in Germany for Orca athlete Sebastian Kienle who won Challenge Kraichgau in a comfortable 6min lead and in doing so became Germany’s Middle Distance Champion for 2014!

Sebi had a stellar swim – surprising quite a lot of people as this is not generally his greatest leg – but we think it was boosted by his Orca wetsuit! And then on to the bike he just continued to dominate – catching and passing all who’d exited the swim in front of him within the first couple of miles on the bike course. By the bike-run transition Sebi had 5.45 on his nearest chasers and while on the run he only increased this. He was looking in top form in his Orca RS1 Dream Vegas Race Suit and his lead was up to 7mins on the run course at one stage, but with a few miles to go Sebi started to take it abit easier and enjoy his finish. Rightly so we think!

Fellow German Orca athlete Jenny Schulz also had a good day out, finishing 9th female overall.
