No one’s talking about him, but come October 13th, make sure to keep your eye on Dirk Bockel, who just keeps getting better every year. In 2011 he was fourth in Kona and this summer he knocked off Michael Raelert at Ironman Regensburg for his first ever Ironman victory. Dirk followed that up with a bronze medal behind Chris McCormack and Eneko Llanos at the ITU World Long Course Championship.
Dirk Bockel has raced in Kona three times and has finished 7th, 8th and, in October of 2011, 4th. For this former Olympic triathlete from Luxembourg, each season is built around winning the most important event in the sport, the Ironman World Championship.
