Ironman Wisconsin 2017 (MPRO-only) – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This year’s IM Wisconsin was pretty quick – mainly because of a faster than usual run (8:36 compared to new run course rating of -0:10). Not surprisingly there were a number of new course records: Andrew Starykowicz posted a new bike course record (4:24:08, improving on Konstantin Bachor’s 4:31 from 2014), Patrick McKeon’s 2:43:09 was a new run course record (improving on a 2:50 by Daniel Bretscher  from 2014), and Luke McKenzie posted a new overall course record (the only record was also from  Daniel Bretscher’s 2014 win).

Male Race Results

Not surprisingly it was Andrew Starykowicz who dominated most of the race: With a new bike course record he stormed to the front and built an eight-minute lead by T2. But then Luke McKenzie’s superior run speed was the deciding factor, with a 2:49 Luke won by eleven minutes over TJ Tollakson who was third in T2 and ran just under eight hours. Patrick McKeon had the fastest run of the day with a 2:43, he was also able to overtake Andy who finished in fourth place.
