Ironman Barcelona 2014 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Conditions on race day were similar to what we have seen for Challenge Barcelona in the last years: A slow, non-wetsuit swim followed by a very fast bike and still quick run, leading to very fast times – in fact both course records were broken. The race adjustment was 35:41 which was still slightly slower than last year.

Male Race Results

The race was very close on the run: Bike leader Konstantin Bachor was run down by two Spaniards who fought for the win almost until the finish chute. In the end, Clemente Alonso McKernan was slightly ahead of Miquel Blanchard Tinto (both running 2:46 marathons), while Konstantin held on for third.

Female Race Results

After some Ironman races where she struggled and DNF’d, Eva Wutti managed to win another race in sub-9h time. After a slow swim, she posted the fastest bike and run times and won my more than 9 minutes in front of Camilla Pedersen, also going sub-9. Susie Hignett had a great first IM race, finishing just over 9 hours in third place.

    Wetsuits were allowed on the swim. Huge amount of drafting with big packs on the course probably distorting the results.
