Ironman Arizona 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Everything in Arizona was a little bit quicker than what is typical this year. Most of the quick times originate from a very fast bike (adjustment of 19:03, compared to a rating of less than 10 minutes). The impact of the new run course was not very big (run adjustment of 4:12 with a run rating of 1:54), so we have to assume that the conditions were just very good for a quick bike ride.

Male Race Results

Jordan Rapp quickly took control of the race on the bike, posting a new bike record (bettering Andy Starykowicz’ time from last year). It was quite unusual for his usual race plan to be the one being hunted down – but Victor Del Corral did just that, posting another fantastic marathon only two weeks after his 2:37 from Florida. Jens Petersen-Bach rounded out the podium.

Female Race Results

The race on the women’s side mirrored the men’s: Meredith Kessler was leading after the bike. She also posted a new bike record (improving on Chrissie’s time), but only held the record for a few minutes as Michelle Vesterby was another 2 1/2 minutes quicker. (It was a quick day, Sarah Piampiano was also under the old record.) Both Meredith and Michelle didn’t have a bad marathon, but it was quickly apparent that Julia Gajer had the best running legs and would probably run them down in the last miles. Julia posted the best run split and won by almost three minutes over Meredith who held off Michelle.
