Ironman Cairns 2014 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

From a time-based perspective, Cairns continues to be a relatively average course: With an adjustment of 5:41 for 2014 the rating hardly changed (now: 5:25). As usual, a slow swim (-2:52, almost as slow as the Kona swim) was followed by a quicker bike and an average run. 

Male Race Results

Cameron Brown became the oldest male winner of an Ironman race by battling down Tim Van Berkel on the run. It appears that Cam and Tim also secured a Kona slot. Peter Robertson was with them at the start of the run, but even his good 2:58 marathon wasn’t a match for Cam’s 2:44.

Female Race Results

Liz Blatchford started her title-defense (and Kona validation) with a fantastic swim, but lost some time on the bike (apparently also getting a penalty). Melanie Burke posted the fastest bike split and continued to run well, but she couldn’t match Lizzie’s race best 3:06 run. Asa Lundstrom snatched up the last place on the podium and valuable KPR points to secure a Kona slot.
