What a great weekend of racing this past weekend! We want to give a big shout out to Kim Essendrup who raced the iconic Challenge Roth race in Germany. Roth is one of the most famous Ironman distance races in the world. Kim had a DNF at this race a few years ago but this year finished successfully in 15:22. He now has Roth and IM Hawaii under his belt! Nice job Kim!
