More Ironman Frankfurt pictures

Our second image gallery from the 2015 Ironman European Championships follows Karsten Täschner's gallery we posted yesterday. The one taken by Kerry Yndestad captures many great moments from the sweltering day.

The pro men dashed into the Langener Waldsee with onlookers nearby, and plenty on the line.

Jan Frodeno was first out of the water and quickly out of sight.

Dutch pro Martijn Dekker leads an armada of competitors onto the distinctive 2 loop bike course around Frankfurt.

Caroline Steffen was all business and ready to attack the course.

Jan Frodeno, on his brand new Canyon race bike, pulled away and recorded the fastest bike split.

While not unusual for Sebastian Kienle to be chasing at this point, he hoped to get closer.

Frederik van Lierde quietly plugged away but was not able to grab a podium spot.

Germans were delighted to see Andi Böcherer back in form and racing long course races.

Tyler Butterfield raced with a distinctive front hydration BTA system.

Fast, forward riding Bas Diederen would likely also appreciate Frodeno's Canyon race bike.

Andreas Raelert came here to fight for a podium spot, but it was not to be.

Daniela Ryf had a tough time getting rid of her competitors, but she pulled it off. The gash on her knee is from a tumble in T1.

Caroline Steffen struggled on the second loop of the bike.

German Julia Gajer rode what was possibly her best race on the bike and was rewarded accordingly.

The lead biker who rode with Frodeno had to work hard for that privilege.

The hot temperatures are evident on the face of the 2014 Ironman World Champion.

A bit of shade under these trees for Eneko Llanos.

American Ruth Brennan Morrey was in top form in Frankfurt.

Julia Gajer on the way to second place.

Lots of helping hands reach out to Daniela Ryf on the way to her win.

Caroline Steffen hung tough to finish third.

You wouldn't think this man has won a few big titles before.

Completely spent, Sebastian Kienle reaches the finish in second place.

It was not a win for Andi Böcherer but certainly a triumph.

The new Ironman European Champion Daniela Ryf reaches the finish in record time and in a sea of kids.

Caroline Steffen mustered a smile at the finish, but she was not happy with her effort.

Lots of joy on the women's podium.
