Ironman UK 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

The Bolton course continues to be very tough, especially the bike has been very slow again this year. A bike adjustment of -18:18 (and a new bike course rating of -15:31) is among the slowest courses on the circuit, only Lanzarote and Wales are even slower. Lucy Gossage still managed to post a new female bike course record of 5:15:04, improving her 5:22 from 2013. (Tine Deckers was also under the old bike course record.) Compared to last year the overall times were a bit faster, an adjustment of -13:22 lead to winning times of 8:41 (male) and 9:26 (female) – slow compared to other courses, but a bit faster than last year.

Kirill and Markus secured their Kona slots by finishing on the top spots. Andrej Vistica and Harry Wiltshire improved their totals, but at least Harry is likely to drop beyond #40 after next weekend’s races. Rom Guillaume was also looking for a good result, but after his DNF he needs to re-asses his Kona plans.

Winner Lucy Gossage was already safe for Kona before the UK race, and Tine Deckers scored well enough to move into “safe territory” for a July slot. Only two weeks after Frankfurt Katja Konschak raced another IM and is now 100% certain of a July slot.
