Argonaut and five-time triathlon World Champion Terenzo Bozzone took 2nd place at the Wildflower Half IRONMAN on April 30, in California. 

Terenzo still holds the record of this prestigious race after setting it in 2006. This race has to be one of the toughest out there with a format of a 1.2-mile swim, 2.2-mile run, 56-mile bike and 10.9-mile run. The difficulty is the hard 2-mile run before starting the bike TT. 

On his E-119 Tri+, Terenzo kept Jesse Thomas within reach and found the strength in his legs holding well. Off onto the run he was 1 minute down and while his form felt good he crossed the finish line 2nd at 04:08:17.

“I am happy with where things are at leading into Ironman Texas in a couple weeks,” says Terenzo. “Strength and fitness are good, the body should take a nice jump up after Wildflower so all I need to do now is look after the body and make sure I recover well.”
