Andi Böcherer

Piąty na Hawajach i srebrny medalista Mistrzostw Europy Ironman, Andi decyduje się na jazdę na rowerach CUBE.

"Doświadczenie CUBE w dziedzinie aerodynamiki da mi dużą przewagę. Moim planem jest nie tylko przyspieszenie treningu, ale także poprawienie wydajności, tj. szybsza jazda przy tym samym wysiłku. Bardzo się cieszę, że znalazłem najlepszego partnera do tego celu. Mając wsparcie CUBE, chcę spełnić swoje marzenie o złocie na Hawajach."

- Andi Böcherer -

Andi got into triathlon through a combination of his passion for sport and adventure and the search to find his own limits. He competed in his first triathlon in 2002 before turning pro in 2008. In 2014, Andi was forced to cut short his season following a collision with a vehicle in training. He returned with a bang in 2015, claiming four golds over the middle distance and a third place at Ironman Frankfurt. In 2016, he took gold in four out of six races, set a new personal best at Ironman Frankfurt with a super fast time of 7:53:40, and finished a career-best fifth at Ironman Hawaii. Andi made an explosive debut to his first season riding the CUBE Aerium C.68, taking two silver medals at the European Championships – over the long and middle distances – and another two second places at Ironman 70.3 events. His goal is to be back in top form for Hawaii in 2019 after injury in 2018. Andi has already made a promising start to the new racing season with a win at Pays d'Aix 70.3.

About Andi

What music do you use to motivate yourself in the last 30 minutes before a race?

Rage Against The Machine

 

What is your training must-have?

My bike helmet, without a doubt. I never ride without it.

 

How many hours per week do you spend on the bike and what's your favourite training session?

Around 10-12 hours. My favourite session is 30/15s on my Litening. I find a climb that’s not too steep and do 30-second VO2 max intervals with 15 seconds of rest in between.

 

How do you recover after a long day of training?

Sleep well, take our little dog for a walk and relax with some cooking – and eating, of course! I also like to take the kids out on the bikes for an ice cream.

What do you do when not swimming, cycling or running?

Spend time with my family and there are always jobs to be done around the house and garden. I also took up horse riding recently but unfortunately don't have much time for it.

 

What is your biggest strength?

The will to go to my limits again and again and not give up if something doesn’t go to plan.

 

What is important to you?

Harmony, no question about it. I perform best when things are good in my private life and everyone around me is happy. I also have to feel good physically – so no niggling aches and pains.

 

What’s your life motto?

“Make it your way.” Find your own path and don't get distracted by what others do or say.
