Another great win for Rodolphe Von Berg that wins the last race of the season thanks to a solid cycling leg and an incredible final half marathon. Vob Berg emerged from a tight duel with Pablo Dapena Gonzalez of Spain and Igor Amorelli of Brazil with a race-best 1:10:56 half marathon that brought him to the finish in 3:37:36 with a 1:08 margin of victory over Dapena Gonzalez and 5:50 over 3rd place finisher Amorelli.
Dapena Gonzalez combined a second-best 23:03 swim, 3rd-fastest 2:01:09 bike split which put him 4 seconds behind bike leader Von Berg at T2, and a 3rd best 1:11:54 run split that brought him to the finish in 3:38:44. Amorelli fashioned a 5th-best 23:08 swim that left him 6 seconds behind swim leader Martin Ulloa of Chile, a race-best 2:01:00 bike split that put him in 3rd place, six seconds behind Von Berg at T2, and a 5th best 1:16:29 half marathon that brought him to the line in 3:43:28. Von Berg’s victory adds another bright mark to a stellar 2019 campaign which includes wins at St. George 70.3 and the Ironman 70.3 European Championship, 2nd at Oceanside 70.3 and 3rd places at Challenge the Championship and the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice.
