IM Canada 2012 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This year’s IM Canada was pretty fast, an adjustment of 7:20 was quite a bit faster than the new course rating of 3:46. It was the last time the race was held as an “official” Ironman, next year it will be held as a Challenge race on more or less the same course. It’ll be interesting to see if the Challenge brand manages to reverse the decline of the (professional) race, the depth of the field has declined quite a bit from the largest number of (pre-rated) professional athletes from 53 in 2008 down to this year’s 14 athletes.
