Ironman France 2018 – Analyzing Results

IMFrance_Logo

Course Conditions

As last year, the conditions on Nice were very slow. This year both the swim and the run were slower than in the past, while the bike was slow (but still a bit faster than last year).

The 2018 race saw two new bike course records. Cam Wurf improved on Frederik Van Lierde’s 2013 bike by just over a minute, while Corinne Abraham was 1:18 quicker than Tine Deckers’ bike leg from 2016. Corinne also took the overall record from Tine’s finishing time from 2014.

Kona Qualifying Implications

There are a couple of athletes who significantly improved their chances for a Kona slot:

  • Safe: Manon Genet, Lisa Roberts
  • On the bubble (could be enough depending on the remaining races): Romain Guillaume
  • Close (but more points needed): Corinne Abraham, Andrej Vista, Giulio Molinari

A number of other athletes already had safe slots (Carrie Lester, Mel Hauschildt, Cameron Wurf, Antony Costes, Frederik Van Lierde)
