A “Technical Note” on Predicted Times

In previous years, Challenge Daytona was contested on a distance of 1.6k swim, 60k bike, and 13k run. Obviously, this is very different from the normal 70.3 distances, but even so it is obvious that the course is very fast. Take for example the bike time of Lionel Sanders: Scaling up his 1:14:54 (from a 60k bike) to a “normal” 70.3 distance of 90k, you get a 1:52:21 – a few minutes faster than the fastest times on “legitimate” 70.3 courses or about the same as the fastest bike time on the known-to-be-somewhat-short 70.3 Dubai. Similarly, Paula Findley and Lisa Norden rode a 1:25:01 last year which equals a 2:07:31. (Imogen Simmonds rode a 2:06:58 when she won in Dubai.)

But it’s tricky to transfer the times from last year to this year’s PTO Championship which will be a 2k swim, 80k bike, and 18k run. The swim and run times can probably just be linearly scaled from the regular distances, but what about the bike? As discussed above, the flat, fast Daytona course is likely to have a big impact on the bike times. Continuing to use Lionel as an example, scaling down his 70.3 bike rating (2:07:48) to 80k, we’d get a 1:53 while his 2019 time (scaled to 80k = 1:40) is only 90% of that. Of course there will be some speed differences between riding 60k, 80k and 90k, but coming up with an exact number is next to impossible with the limited amount of data there is. (For those interested, I’m speeding up the scaled 80k bike times to 92% which gives Lionel an expected bike time of 1:43:29.)

All of this goes to show that the times shown in the seedings below have to be taken with an even larger grain of salt than for other races. But I think they still provide some value in that the order of the athletes and – probably as important – the time difference between the athletes should be pretty stable (at least for those with a decent number of 70.3s) and give a good indication of how the race might unfold when everyone is racing with their “paper form”. For example, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Magnus Ditlev to ride through the field on the bike. Even then, numbers can’t predict what is going to happen when he rides past Alistair Brownlee or Gustav Iden and if Ali is going to stay with him (or trust his much better run). Similarly, on the women’s side Holly Lawrence should ride away from the rest of the field on the bike, possibly building a large enough lead for the run. But there are a few ladies in the field who have raced well in 2020 – for example Lisa Norden has posted the fastest bike split in all her 2020 races (and consistently outperformed my predictions), and at IM Florida four weeks before Daytona, Renee Kiley, Ruth Astle, Skye Moench and Kat Matthews have ridden splits of 4:32 to 4:36 over a flat 180k bike course – even if they don’t ride at a much faster speed they’d be under the two-hour-mark in Daytona.

  • Javier Gomez: 3% (29-1)
  • Pieter Heemeryck: 3% (30-1)
  • Rudy Von Berg: 2% (62-1)

In addition to these rated athletes, you also have to consider Vincent Luis and Jonathan Brownlee (who haven’t raced on the 70.3 distance before) as potential winners for the race – I expect at least one of them to finish on the podium in Daytona.

Ironman Florida 2020 – Analyzing Results

IMFlorida

Course Conditions

As usual, IM Florida has been quite fast, though an adjustment of 15:49 is a bit slower than the previous 22:12 course rating. Conditions were slower than normal in the swim (-4:08) and the run (-1:46) while the bike was about normal (21:43 in line with an 18:51 bike course rating)

The female winner, Katrina Matthews, was able to set a new overall course record: She was more than two minutes quicker than the old record of 8:43:07, set by Yvonne Van Vlerken in 2013. On the bike, Ruth Astle posted a 4:32:13, a new bike course record, beating the old record also by Yvonne in 2013. (Renee Kiley was even quicker but had to DNF with a run injury.)

Kona Qualifying

IM Florida has 6 Kona slots, at 24 male Pros and 17 female Pro starters, they should be split evenly.

Ironman Florida 2020 (Nov 7th) – Seedings

IMFloridaUpdate November 6th: Jocelyn McCauley is no longer on the latest startlist. Heather Jackson has also indicated that she won’t be in Panama Beach. I have crossed out their names in the seed tables below.
A further reduction in the number of female starters could impact the slot assignment: If the men have at least 60% of the Pro starters, both unassigned slots would go to the male Pros. With 25 male Pros, there’d have to be 13 or fewer female Pros. However, even without Jocelyn and Heather, there are still 18 female Pros on the start list, so an equal slot split still seems quite likely.
