IM Wisconsin 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

As usual, IM Wisconsin was relatively slow (adjustment of -0:25). The slowest leg this year was the swim (adjustment of -3:34), and I’ve heard a number of reports indicating a windy, choppy swim.

Male Race Results

Maik Twelsiek won the race with a performance that was typical for him: Close to the front on the swim, followed by a very strong bike (12 minutes faster than any other finisher). He was then able to hold on to the lead with a solid 3:06 run. He was followed by Daniel Bretscher (posting a good run) and Eliot Holtham (being almost an hour faster than expected).

Female Race Results

Whereas most of the top men were able to beat their expected times, a lot of the women struggled a bit. Jackie Arendt managed to post a good run (relative to her previous results) and win the race. She was followed by Beth Shutt (also with a solid run) and Malaika Homo who had to settle for third after the best bike leg and leading in T2.
