Ironman Cozumel 2017 – Analyzing Results

IMCozLogoRace Conditions

This year was very fast for Cozumel – with a new course rating of 9:07 the 2017 adjustment was 23:47, meaning that the race was in the order of 15 minutes quicker than normal. This was caused by a fast swim (there was no talk about a shortened swim, so it was either misplaced buoys or currents aiding the swim) but also a quick bike (based on the numbers roughly 8 to 10 minutes quicker than normal) and a not quite-as-hard-as-normal run.

The fast conditions helped the winners race extremely fast and post new course records. Discarding the shortened 2013 race, Lisa Roberts is the first woman to go sub-9 (she broke Corinne Abraham’s 2015 time of 9:06:40 with a 8:54), and Sebastian Kienle is the first athlete to go sub-8 in Cozumel (his 7:48 broke Frederik Van Lierde’s 2016 record of 8:03:09). Sebi also posted a new bike course record, while Jarrod Shoemaker set a new swim course record and Ivan Rana improved his own run course record. On the female side, Alicia Kaye posted a new swim course record and Rachel McBride set a new bike course record.

Kona Qualifying Implications

It’s still early in the season, but a number of athletes have raced Cozumel with an eye towards Kona 2018:

  • Sebastian Kienle validated his Automatic Qualifier slot.
  • Ivan Rana scored enough points to be safe for a July slot. 
  • Lisa Roberts has won two IMs, but she’ll need a few more points for a slot – for now she’s “in the bubble”. However, she should be able to secure her slot just by racing 70.3s in spring 2018.

Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

Sebastian Kienle has changed his season plan a bit, this year he’ll be trying to do an early validation of his Kona slot and of course he is the clear favorite for Cozumel. Of course there will be a slight question mark how fresh he is going to be just six weeks after Kona, but that applies to most of his competition as well.

  • Sebastian Kienle: 79% (1-1)
  • Michael Weiss: 7% (12-1)
  • Ivan Rana: 6% (17-1)
  • Stefan Schmid: 3% (30-1)

Female Race Participants

The female race also features a number of athletes that have raced Kona, but Michelle, Anja, and Sonja haven’t quite had the race they were looking for. Lisa Roberts will be on the start line coming off a win at IM Louisville one day after Kona.

  • Michelle Vesterby: 51% (1-1)
  • Lisa Roberts: 23% (3-1)
  • Anja Beranek: 11% (8-1)
  • Sonja Tajsich: 6% (17-1)

In addition to the athletes who already have a lot of experience on the IM distance, Helle Frederiksen is also on the start list (though it’s not clear if she’ll race here or in Arizona a week before) and will be looking to mix things up.
