Jan Frodeno is back in action this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Barcelona, his first Ironman-branded race since Oceanside.

The South African-born German is based in Girona, Spain half the year and considers Barcelona his home race. “I’m looking forward to some good fan vibes around the course.”

The dual Ironman world champion won on the Calella coast in 2015 on his way to his first title in Kona and considers this race a checkpoint in his training.

“It marks the ‘let’s get serious’ point in my calendar, as after this it’s back to full-distance training,” says Frodeno, who is building into Ironman Austria as his validation race for entry into the Ironman World Championship. “It’s a really challenging course for me as there is a 10-kilometer climb in it. Not really my thing but luckily it’s followed by a very technical descent, which is exactly my thing!”
