Kona 2015: Preliminary Bike Analysis (Women)

With the Top 16 of the women in, here are a few observations about the women’s bike leg:

  • The bike for the women has been very fast, most of the women raced considerable faster than their expected time.
  • Best relative performances have been by Mareen Hufe (6:45 faster) and Michelle Vesterby (7:18 faster).
  • Only Carolin Steffen has been considerably slower than what I would have expected based on her previous times (11 minutes slower). Susie Cheetham was slower by four minutes, but is still in a good position for a Top 10 finish.
