After winning Ironman 70.3 Staffs today, Spain’s Javier Gomez told us at the finish line that he “didn’t want to push it too hard” as he’s in the middle of a tough block of training.
“It was a very tough bike course, and after all the rain yesterday it was quite slippy out there! I held back a little on the bike as I knew the guy in the lead (Thomschke) was going a bit too fast for me, but I wasn’t too far behind coming into T2.”
“I went hard on the first lap then was quite conservative after I got the lead, I’m in the middle of quite a hard block of training so I didn’t want to push it too hard. I’m really pleased with the win and I feel confident building up to the 70.3 Worlds now”
