The Brothers Raelert

 

The German brothers are ready for Kona this year.  Last year, Michael was injured and unable to even vie for the K-Swiss $1 million dollar bonus for a brotherly top finish. But this year, both brothers seem ready. With Michael winning the European 70.3 Championship race last week in 4:03:58, he not only crushed Andreas Boecherer’s 2011 course record, but showed he is back and possibly unstoppable at the 70.3 distance. With only one Ironman under his belt, he may have to defer to old brother Andreas to set the pace at Kona. But it is Andreas himself who has said that Michael is the better athlete. Will the brothers try to work together to get atop the podium together as they dream of?  Will Michael use all his energy trying to win at the 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas? What do you think about brothers or sisters and how they race together?
