Ironman Texas 2019 – Analyzing Results

Race ConditionsIMTexasLogo

After last year’s crazy fast times (for whatever reasons), this year was a relatively slow year for Texas – an adjustment of 12:30 compared to the new course rating of 15:08. While the swim and run where quite typical, the bike was pretty slow, compared to last year it was nearly 17 minutes slower. 

If we don’t accept the times from last year for course records, then both winners posted new course records. In addition, Kim Morrison’s bike time was a new bike course record.

Kona Qualifying

Texas had a total of six Kona Pro slots, with 14 female and 30 male starters the unassigned slots went to the men, resulting in four male slots and two female slots.

Daniela validated her AQ Kona slot, in addition the already qualified athletes Jocelyn McCauley, Andrew Starykowicz and Matt Hanson didn’t “count” for the slots.

Therefore the slots went to Jeanni Seymour and Lesley Smith on the female side, and Patrik Nilsson, David Plese, Joe Skipper and Kyle Buckingham for the men.
