Ironman Cairns 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMCairnsLogoCourse Conditions

The racing in Cairns was fast and furious across the board, and the conditions favored quick times especially on the bike (even though no new bike course records were set). An adjustment of 13:54 is the fastest I have seen on this course. 

There were a number of new course records: Winners Teresa Adam and Braden Currie set new overall records (improving the times set by Sarah Crowley and Josh Amberger just one year ago). Lauren Brandon claimed another swim course record, and there were also run course records by Beth McKenzie (first sub-3 run in Cairns) and Braden Currie (with the first sub-2:40).

Kona Qualifying

Here’s the athletes that have significantly improved their chances for a July slot:

  • Automatic Qualifiers: Teresa Adam, Braden Currie, Mirinda Carfrae (Kona winner, now validated)
  • Safe: Gurutze Frades, Javier Gomez, Tim O’Donnell
  • Bubble (might be enough): Tim Reed, Callum Millard, Denis Chevrot (all of them already have four races in their total, so it’ll be hard for them to improve without doing another Ironman)
  • Close (more points needed): Melanie Burke, Asa Lundstroem

In addition to these, Terenzo Bozzone, Tim Van Berkel, and Kyle Buckingham already had secured their slots before Cairns.

Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

  • Terenzo Bozzone: 41% (1-1)
  • Tim Van Berkel: 17% (5-1)
  • Timothy O’Donnell: 14% (6-1)
  • Luke McKenzie: 8% (11-1)
  • Mike Phillips: 6% (15-1)
  • Braden Currie: 4% (22-1)
  • David Dellow: 4% (23-1)

In addition to these established athletes, there is Javier Gomez who will race in his first Ironman-distance race who has also to be considered for the win. (I have tried to come up with a data-based guess for a possible Cairns finish time for him in my post “Trying to Predict Ironman Times from 70.3 Ratings“. The result was a range of times between 8:00 and 8:30.)

Female Race Participants

  • Mirinda Carfrae: 40% (1-1)

  • Beth McKenzie: 13% (6-1)

IM Cairns 2017 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Conditions in Cairns were very good this year: An adjustment of 12:14 is significantly faster than the course rating of 5:10 and the fastest ever on this course. Not surprisingly both the male and female course records were broken: Josh Amberger’s 8:02 was a 13-minute improvement on the old record by Tim Berkel, and Sarah Crowley’s 8:58 improved on a 9:06 by Jodie Swallow.

The main difference to previous years was on the bike, consequently there were also two new bike records: Cameron Wurf posted a 4:15 (bettering Luke McKenzie’s 2013 time by 6 minutes) and Sarah Crowley rode 4:50:00 (just a 40 second improvement on the 2015 ride by Jodie). Both second place finishers missed the run course records by only a few seconds – the records by Tim Berkel and Linsey Corbin still stand.

Male Race Results

Josh Amberger was leading the race from start to finish. He posted the fastest swim time (closely followed by Clayton Fettell – pretty much as expected), had the second fastest bike ride and then also posted a solid 2:53 marathon to win with a time just over 8 hours – improving his Ironman PR by more than 40 minutes and much quicker than expected by his single IM finish in South Africa!

My expectation before the race was that the race would come down to who would have the best run of the solid bike riders. This was pretty much what happened – with the exception of Josh who all day long was in front of the field. In second to fourth place are the athletes with the best, second best and fourth best marathon times: Joe Gambles was finally able to show his potential on the IM distance and added the fastest marathon to a solid bike ride, almost running down Josh. Third place went to IM New Zealand winner Braden Currie. Last year’s Cairns winner Tim Berkel was in a solid position for most of the race, but he had one bad patch on the run and eventually had to settle for fourth place. David Dellow was probably still a bit tired after his win at IM Australia just five weeks ago, still finishing fifth to secure his Kona slot.

Female Race Results

As expected Karen Thibodeau was leading the race after the swim, but Sarah Crowley was just a few seconds behind and quickly went to the front after the start of the bike. She quickly started to pull away from the rest of the field, and even the strong biker Sarah Piampiano – as is typical for her a few minutes behind after the swim, but also loosing some time with zipper issues in T1 – wasn’t able to make up any ground. By T2 the lead was around 14 minutes. Sarah P went on to have the best run of the day with a 3:02 marathon to finish second, but Sarah C ran a solid 3:06 marathon to claim the win with a sub-9 course record time.

Third place went to Kristin Moeller backing up just two weeks after IM Brasil – a 3:03 marathon was “slow” for her but still good enough to run through the rest of the field. Dimity-Lee Duke had a good race to finish fourth, almost getting caught by another German, Katharina Grohmann who finished fifth.
