Victory for Pieter Rijnders (BEL) and Anna Halasz (HUN) at Powerman Luxembourg

10km run (flat) - 60km Bike (hilly) - 10km Run (flat). Sunny, 16°c.

2014 Powerman Luxembourg took place on Sunday, starting at 1pm in the Sportarena in Diekirch.

Around 80 PowerKids and 300 Powerman athletes took part in this first edition under lovely sunny conditions.

Participants included entries from Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Ireland, Costa Rica, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland, Canada, RomAnia, Australia, Cape Verde, Philippines and of course, Luxembourg.

Yannick Cadalen (FRA), Pieter Rijnders (BEL) and Sebastian Retzlaf (GER) were among the pre-race favourites.

After the first 10km into transition it was Cadalen, followed by Rijnders with Francois Humblet (BEL) third and Eberhardt (SUI) in fourth. On the bike Rijnders waited until the last lap and climb to get rid of Cadalen and Humblet to come into T2 afer the 60 km with a lead of 32 seconds on Cadalen and 1:45 on Francois Humblet. Retzlaf was fourth to arrive after a very strong bike leg.

After bad luck at the 2014 EC Duathlon Long Distance in Horst/Netherlands, Rijnders wanted to show everybody how strong he is. He just ran away and the gap grew with every kilometre. After 6km Humblet passed Cadalen to take second place.

In the women's race, Hungary's Anna Halasz lead from the front, with a close battle behind her as multiple position changes were seen during the race with Elena Olsen (DEN) securing second place.
