IRONMAN AUSTRALIA 2019 – FULL POST-RACE INTERVIEW WITH TIM REED
PREPD HELPS BOOST TIM REED TO 2ND PLACE IN IRONMAN AUSTRALIA
Congratulations to PREPD ambassador Tim Reed on an epic performance taking out 2nd place in IRONMAN in Port Macquarie earlier this month. A PB performance in a time of 8:09:50 – almost 7 minutes faster than when he won in 2016!
After heading into the run almost 10 mins behind Cam Wurf after a blisteringly fast bike leg, Reedy chipped away before reigning in an extra five minutes over the last 10k’s. Not quite enough to take out the win but Tim described it as “a clear standout race for me over this distance” and finished with a staggering 2:44 hour marathon!
Just a week later, Reedy backed up with a podium finish in hot and humid conditions in IRONMAN 70.3 Vietnam against a world class field including IRONMAN World Champion Patrick Lange.
“Yeah I was very tempted (to try and chase Cam earlier). Ultimately you are still racing yourself over this distance and you don’t want to totally explode by taking too many risks.”
