Ironman Cozumel 2015 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

The weather in Cozumel was quite favorable for the racers, no strong winds impeded the race on the swim or the bike, and the heat wasn’t too bad on the run.

Male Race Results

Stefan Schmid wasn’t the top favorite to win the race, but he was close to the front after the swim and in the┬álead into T2. For a good part of the run he was shoulder to shoulder with Patrik Nilsson who DNF’d after the half marathon mark. Stefan was racing well all day, racing faster than expected in all three legs and winning his first Ironman. He missed the course record by only 11 seconds. Second place went to Matt Russell who also had a great day and posted the fastest marathon, but even a 2:47 wasn’t enough to reel in Stefan.

Female Race Results

The female race saw a bigger group of leaders that only broke up shortly before T2. Emma-Kate Lidbury was leading early in the run, eventually finishing in 5th place. For a while Leanda Cave was in front, but she was overtaken by Corinne Abraham who wasn’t part of the front group but posted the fastest bike and run times. After having to decline her Kona spot because of an injury, Corinne had a great comeback race, winning Cozumel with a new course record. After crashing out of Kona, Leanda Cave finished the 2015 season with a solid second place. She validated her Kona slot, as did Camilla Pedersen in third place who should be safe after her 8th place in Kona. After being in great position in T2, Heather Wurtele didn’t quite have the run she was looking but still finished fourth.
