Were the talented swimmers that worried Kienle before the race. "After the first lap swimming, had a 3-minute
deficit by leader. I was quite shocked and I was expecting at least 6 minutes after the swim, "said Kienle after the race. However, he managed to keep the gap between him and the fastest swimmers to 3 min 30 sec after swimming 3.8 k in the Langener Waldsee.

A bike quick as a Flash
On his new bike the German went immediately to chase athletes in front of him. Once at the top of the stroke, Kienle waited a steep hill to attack and from there gained time on competitors continually. With a split of 4:12:14 Kienle broke the existing record of 8 minutes. Van Lierdes's bicycle was the second fastest of the day, but always behind Kienle. "The new bike is just damn fast," Kienle concluded after the race. "I can't say more now, but in 10 days will reveal to the press and fans the reasons why this bike is the fastest!"
