He also made a new bike course record of 4 hours 53 minutes 46 seconds AND run course record of 2 hours 41 minutes 46 seconds. teamTBB's Diana Riesler just missed out on the win to take 2nd behind Kristin Moeller, but made a new bike course record of 5 hours 25 minutes 57 seconds.
Aaron executed his race to perfection, made even more remarkable by the following...
- He rode from Leysin in Switzerland to the start of the Alpe d'Huez race
- He then did the Alpe d’Huez Long Distance race and came 3rd on the podium
- He hopped on a plane to Bolton and scooped his 1st ever IM title to become the first non British citizen to win
- Now he's on his way home to Australia for his son’s christening.
All in all, an EPIC performance by teamTBB’s newest star, Aaron Farlow!
