The American flew by once again on his Orbea, completing the 172 kilometers of the course in 3 hours, 54 minutes and 59 seconds.

Andrew Starykowicz never gets tired of breaking records. This time, it was at the Texas Ironman, where he flew by once again on his Orbea, setting a new record in this competition, riding his Ordu at an average speed of 43'91 km/h!

The American rider completed all 172 kilometers of this cycling stage in 3 hours, 54 minutes and 59 seconds, beating the second-place finisher by 10 whole minutes!

After officially setting this new record, the U.S. triathlete wanted thank all "the fans who have followed him online or cheered for him during the race, his sponsor, organization volunteers, his coach, friends and family," for their support, since they all have made him "train harder to make days like this possible", according to what he wrote on his Twitter profile.

Andrew Starykowicz has the best time in the stage, a record he also set in Texas in 2017, completing the 180 kilometers that time in 4 hours, 1 minute and 15 seconds. This is a real achievement that demonstrated Starykowicz’s ability to overcome adversity, since only seven months earlier he had broken both legs. It seems incredible, but Andrew is either a cut above the rest or is from a totally different plant…

Congratulations, Andrew! Keep on breaking records!
