A day with Sebastian Kienle

We spent a day with German rising talent Sebastian Kienle while he was in the Freiburg area for a training block with his coach Lubos Bilek. Kienle actually lives in Karlsruhe, Germany, about 2.5 hours away from this scenic University town, but he spends quite a bit of time in Kirchzarten, just a few miles outside of Freiburg.

Kienle has caught the attention of industry insiders with some of his strong performances. In 2009 he won the Ironman 70.3 Wiesbaden race and held off 70.3 World Champion Michael Raelert to get that done, and like a few other Germans he is well known for his cycling prowess. Most recently he cranked out a 4:14:42 bike split and a second place behind Rasmus Henning at the 2010 Challenge Roth triathlon. Next for the German will be the XTERRA World Championships in Maui, Hawaii, but prior to that race expect to see him in Kona for some scouting, training and cheering.

Slowtwitch followed the lanky German a whole day in Freiburg, and also added a couple pictures we snapped during his sighting at Eurobike.
