Ironman France 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMFrance_Logo

Course Conditions

As last year, the conditions on Nice were very slow. This year both the swim and the run were slower than in the past, while the bike was slow (but still a bit faster than last year).

The 2018 race saw two new bike course records. Cam Wurf improved on Frederik Van Lierde’s 2013 bike by just over a minute, while Corinne Abraham was 1:18 quicker than Tine Deckers’ bike leg from 2016. Corinne also took the overall record from Tine’s finishing time from 2014.

Kona Qualifying Implications

There are a couple of athletes who significantly improved their chances for a Kona slot:

  • Safe: Manon Genet, Lisa Roberts
  • On the bubble (could be enough depending on the remaining races): Romain Guillaume
  • Close (but more points needed): Corinne Abraham, Andrej Vista, Giulio Molinari

A number of other athletes already had safe slots (Carrie Lester, Mel Hauschildt, Cameron Wurf, Antony Costes, Frederik Van Lierde)

Ironman France 2018 (June 24th) – Seedings

Update June 19th: Removed a few athletes as they are no longer on the latest start list (Braden Currie, Bryan McCrystal, Heather Jackson, Helena Herrero) or have posted on social media that they won’t be racing (Boris Stein).

Female Race Participants

Heather Jackson is posted in the official start list (bib #62), but she has written on her blog that she decided to race IM Lake Placid. She confirmed to me that she won’t be racing in France. I am therefore posting the seedings (including the odds) as if she is not part of the field. (Update: June 19th: She’s no longer on the latest start list.)

The strength of the field is 11% of a typical Kona field.

Ironman France 2017 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This year was one the slowest conditions for IM France: The overall adjustment of -12:41 is almost 14 minutes slower than last year, mainly because of an extremely slow bike. The run was quick, but not quite as fast as in recent years. Consequently, both male and female winning times were slower than in recent years.

Male Race Results

Frederik Van Lierde didn’t allow any doubts that he wanted to win the race: He was in the front group on the swim, then quickly built a lead on the bike that even super-biker Cameron Wurf wasn’t able to close. He was able to take things easy on the run, even a 2:57 marathon allowed him to win by five minutes.

Second place went to Alessandro Degasperi who posted the fastest marathon with a 2:43 followed by Denis Chevrot with a 2:47. Eneko Llanos was in second place for a long run but then fell off the pace and was a disappointed fourth place finisher.

Female Race Results

Annabel Luxford was the T1 leader and stayed in front for the first half of the bike. But then Carrie Lester stepped up the pace and entered T2 with a two and a half minute lead. Carrie also had the fastest run of the day and started to build a ten minute lead until the finish. Annabel Luxford posted a new marathon PR (3:14) and finished second. Nicole Valentine was also able to have a good run and finished third.

Kona Qualifying Implications

A couple of the top finishers secured Kona slots by placing well in Nice:

  • Alessandro Degasperi is now at well over 4.000 points and safe for a July slot.
  • Both Carrie Lester and Annabel Luxford have also secured their slots.

Denis Chevrot has improved his total to 3.390 points, but that will likely not be enough to make it to Kona.

Fred Van Lierde had already validated his AQ slot before.
