Ironman Lake Placid 2019 – Analyzing Resulst

IMLakePlacidThis is a preliminary analysis that will be updated once I have the full results and splits.

Course Conditions

IM Lake Placid is a pretty slow course and this year it was probably even harder. An adjustment of -20:33 is the slowest we have ever seen on this course. This was mainly due to an extremely slow run, the run adjustment of -10:09 is reflected by the fastest run that was only 2:56:30 by Joe Gambles. The performance of the day was Matt Russell’s 4:27:27 bike split: It was more than ten minutes quicker than any other finisher’s bike split and broke one of the longest standing course records, Steve Larson’s 4:33 from 2001.

Kona Qualifying

IM Lake Placid 2019 has two Kona slots, these go to

  • Joe Gambles
    and
  • Mark Duelsen.

(Winner Matt Russell already secured his Kona slot at IM Frankfurt.)

Official slot allocation (and a rolldown in case one of those two declines his slot) will be on Monday.
