Lance Armstrong Wins Ironman 70.3 Florida

Lance Armstrong’s Kona campaign took a massive step forward today when he posted a decisive win at Ironman 70.3 Florida. All of the field where ‘Lanced’ as the seven time Tour-de-France winner posted a 2:01:13 bike which was an incredible 10 minutes 30 seconds ahead of the next best placed rider.

However Lance proved that it is not all about the bike when he went on to run a 1:15:56 half marathon split to win the race ahead of Maxim Kriat of the Ukraine. Lance is certainly not intending turning up in Kona just to make up the numbers, and it will be fascinating to see how he goes on the Ironman France course in Nice, a course he is very familiar with.

“Despite feeling really good, I just tried to stay within myself,” Armstrong said after the race.

“I followed the GPS to make sure that I was on my pace, which was 5:45-5:50 and didn’t try to go any quicker.”

Armstrong attributed his success to the fact that he finally got the nutrition right in Florida.

“I felt pretty good I must say. Think I finally figured out the nutrition component which has been dogging me,” he tweeted after the race.

In the women’s race it was an all America podium with Jessica Jacobs taking the win in a time of 4:24:30.
