IM Wales 2012 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

After last year’s really slow initial race, this year the conditions were more “average”: The race adjustment was 1:08, leading to a new course rating of -5:55. The bike times seem really slow (apparently there was a lot of wind and rain), but the run times were quick. I haven’t heard any statements on how accurate the course was, but the numbers seem a bit suspicious.

    conditions in 2011 were pretty horrendous even for Wales with an atlantic hurricane catching the coast. tis year was just usually wet and windy coastal weather. Bike course has all types of hills (i.e. combination of long, rolling and very steep) with some tight descents so it’s a legitimately slow ride. Run course also very hilly but was clearly measured wrong this year – about 40k. T1 includes about 1km run through town hence the splits probably look unusual.
