He also took the tape at last year’s 70.3 Nice, which is the site of this year’s IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships coming up on September 8th.

Team INFINIT Pro Triathlete, Rudy von Berg, talks to us about the breakout season he's had in 2018—Racing with his dad and sister at 70.3 Worlds in South Africa, going on to win 70.3 Nice 2 weeks later, and his experiences competing at the pro level at just 24 years old.
A couple weekends ago I raced in the Steelhead 70.3 (Half Ironman) in Benton Harbor, Michigan. This was my 2nd time racing at Steelhead but the last time I raced here was back in 2010 where I set my 70.3 PR with a time of 4:16:06. This is my 3rd year racing a professional triathlete and I have dabbled in a few 70.3's over the last couple of years including Chattanooga (2016 and 2018) and Austin (2016 - canceled swim) and just hadn't put together a good half Ironman race in a long time.
