Ironman Canada 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

After last year’s rain and cold (and corresponding slow times), this year’s race in Whistler was much quicker in all three legs. Andy Potts posted new swim and bike course records, but even though he ran a sub-3 marathon it was pretty obvious that he wasn’t going for the overall course record.

Kona Qualifying Implications

A lot of athletes were looking for a final push in their KPR total. Andy Potts, Pedro Gomes and Trevor Wurtele secured their slots. For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the July cutoff.
