Ironman Wales 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMWales_LogoCourse Conditions

Ironman Wales is one of the toughest Ironman courses on the calendar, and this year’s edition continued that trend: The male winner Matt Trautman went just under 9 hours, and the female winner Lucy Gossage just under 10 hours.

Based on the data the bike conditions were pretty quick (at least for Wales!), this probably contributed to new bike course records set by Matt (his 4:54:47 was almost three minutes faster than the 2015 record set by Markus Thomschke) and Lucy (she improved the old record by Jeanne Collonge from 2016 by just over a minute).

Ironman Wales 2017 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

All accounts from Wales have highlighted the “epic conditions”. The data tells the same story: While the swim was still pretty normal, the rain and wind on the bike made conditions extremely hard, a bike adjustment of -33:36 is the slowest ever in Wales, Combined with a tough run the overall adjustment of -43:11 is the second slowest ever in an Ironman-branded race .. the only slower race was in Wales 2014 when the swim and run were even harder than this year.

Even with the crazy slow bike conditions, Cam Wurf came very close to breaking the bike course record – he was just 36 seconds slower than Markus Thomschke in 2015.

Male Race Results

Australian cyclist-turned-traithlete Cameron Wurf continues his “Ironman education”: After his second place in Sweden (and securing a Kona slot) he won his first Ironman race. He built a large lead on the bike with the fastest bike split by more almost twelve minutes, then also had a solid 3:11 run. Philip Graves was able to close the gap with a strong 3:11 run, he finished second just over two minutes back. Third place went to Christian Kramer with a solid day in all three legs.
