IM Mont Tremblant 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This was the second time that an Ironman race was held in Mont Tremblant. The course is neither fast nor slow (course rating of 6:55), and the adjustments were pretty similar to what we’ve seen last year.

Male Race Results

There was quite some drama in the excellent online coverage of the race: After posting his “normal” quick swim and bike and leading the race,┬áLuke Bell was cramping on the run, but even with three stretching breaks he ran a 2:57 marathon. Behind him, there were a lot of changes on the run (unfortunately out of view of the camera that of course followed the race leader) with Brandon Marsh finally moving into the 2nd spot by just 34 seconds in front of Bert Jammaer. (It would have been great to have a Tour de France kind of coverage of the race – tons of cameras, frequent splits etc. – but that is way beyond what can reasonably be expected at this point.)

Female Race Results

On the women’s side, Mary Beth Ellis did a “Kona simulation ride” (she rode 5:08 in Kona last year). After that, she was able to cruise to the win with an “easy” marathon. (I’m not sure if something like an “easy marathon” exists, but if it does, Mary Beth had one.) Behind her, there was another camera-worthy fight for 2nd and 3rd place. Rebekah Keat, Anja Beranek and Liz Blatchford switched places a few times and finally finished all with 49 seconds.
