DUTCH Double Triathlon, 4-5 June 1995

The sixth edition of the DUTCH Double Triathlon was held on 4-5 June 1995 in The Hague, on the same course as the DUTCH Five Triathlons 1991 and 1994: Swimming in 'De Wervel' in Rijswijk, biking and running in the 'Zuiderpark'.
At the start appeared 29 participants. The first one to climb out of the pool was Peter Verbree, in 1:59 hrs. He was closely followed by Rudi Claes (2:00), who almost immediately took the leading position and remained there up to the finish line. Rudi made the best bike and run times (11:17 bike, 8:46 run) and finished in a new DUTCH Double record time of 21:02:58.
Astrid Benöhr was the first (and the only) female participant. Nevertheless, she finished in fourth place overall.

Apart from the solo-event, there was also a team-relay event. In the team-event, teams consisting of two or three athletes also do the double distance, but they are allowed to relay wherever possible (go-as-you-please).
This year there were ten teams at the start: 5 German teams, 4 Dutch and 1 Danish. All teams but the Dutch 'Judgement Day' team consisted of three athletes. As expected, one of the ever so fast tri-teams from Sinzig (GER) won in a tim of 17:29 hrs.
