Ironman Japan 2015 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Ironman Japan is always one of the slowest races, and this year was no exception with an adjustment of -27:28 mainly because of a very slow bike.

Male Race Results

The race was decided on the bike: Swen Sandberg posted the fastest bike ride of the day and won by a comfortable margin. Patrick Evoe used his strong bike and fastest run to finish second, followed by early race leader Simon Cochrane.
