Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon 2013

Last weekend SWISSMAN Xtreme Triathlon 2013 winner Markus Stierli added another big success to his sports career: he won the 11th edition of the Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon at the top of the Norwegian mountain Gaustatoppen. He finished the race in 11:25:16h and could leave his competitors behind him. All athletes had to fight with the special Norwegian elements: fog, headwind and rain made the race even harder. The Norseman is like the SWISSMAN a very special race because of the difficult track with climbs, the finish at a steep mountain and the uncomfortable weather. The winner, X-BIONIC® athlete Markus Stierli, mentioned after the race: “The Isklar Norseman was the perfect race for me . Wet, cold and lots of wind” –  Congratulations Markus! Top men 1.
