Ironman Mont Tremblant 2014 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

Mont Tremblant is one of the „middle level“ courses with a race adjustment 7:34, almost the same as the course rating of 8:06. The swim is relatively slow, and the bike and run courses are quite normal. A lot of athletes have indicated that the bike and run course are really hilly, but that is not reflected in the Pro times.

Male Race Results

After a slow start to the year, TJ Tollakson had a great day: After being in the front group on the swim and the first part of the bike, he moved away from the group which then promptly disintegrated. After his 4:26 on the bike there was some speculation that he might have gone too had, but he posted a 2:54 marathon, the second fastest of the day and there was never a moment where he seemed to be in trouble. Andreas Raelert was the only one left in the same ZIP code as TJ on the bike, but he struggled a bit on the run and finished in third behind Daniel Halksworth who methodically worked his way into second place.
