IM New Zealand 2011 – Analyzing the Results

This Saturday, Cameron Brown won IM New Zealand for an amazing 10th time. The women’s race was an unexpected win by Sam Warriner.

Here is a closer look at the results.

Conditions

The conditions on race day sounded really bad – there was a lot of rain, probably also pretty cold weather. While these horrible sounding conditions are sometimes actually quite good for fast racing, this was not the case for New Zealand:

  • Course Rating prior to race: 18:39
  • Adjustment for 2011 race: 7:06

This means that New Zealand is usually about a quarter hour faster than IM Hawaii (which has a course rating of 2:50), but this year was about 11:30 minutes slower than usual. This is pretty much in line with the horrible race conditions.

Men’s Results

13 Kerry Weeks NZL 10:04:24 n/a
14 Rich Munro AUS 10:53:20 09:33:45

Expected time is based on athlete’s rating (prior to race) and race conditions.

Among the top athletes, Cameron was the one that was least affected by the conditions and landed a really convincing win. Petr Vabrousek was also even better than his expected time, but was passed by Scott Curry who really improved on his prior results.

9 Maki Nishiuchi JPN 10:16:48 10:19:06
10 Jo Carrel NZL 10:54:31 10:50:28

Expected time is based on athlete’s rating (prior to race) and race conditions.

Previously unrated Sam Warriner pulled off a surprise win. Her first rated race would put her into a Top10 spot in the rankings (but I require a minimum of two rated races). (I think I read somewhere that she has done a previous IM-distance race. Does anyone know where? Please let me know in the comments.)

Top rated Mirinda Carfrae had two flats on the bike, and she just edged out Jo Lawn. Kate Bevilaqua and the the other previously unrated women also performed well, posting solid times and provided some close racing.

Looking ahead to IM New Zealand

Since my last post, I’ve worked a bit more on the results and ratings I have on file for IM New Zealand. Here is the full data!

Ironman New Zealand – Quick Preview

I’m preparing a longer post looking at the upcoming IM New Zealand race. For now, I have two short teasers.

A Look at the Course

Taupo has a course rating of 20:32 – compared to Kona’s 3:49. It is one of the quicker courses – about as fast as IM Arizona, but still slower than IM Florida by about 5 minutes. While the toad conditions on the bike are probably not too good, the course is still reasonably flat and there are no extreme weather conditions – in fact the climate sounds almost perfect for a good race. (Of course you have the exception with the 2006 race, where strong winds even led to a canceled swim and a shortened race.)

The course rating of 20:32 means that on an average day Cameron Brown (rated 8:37:41) is expected to finish around 8:17:19.

Male Pro Participants

Based on the list from the IM New Zealand website, here are the male professional participants and their current ratings:

Rank Name Nation Rating
1 Cameron Brown NZL 08:37:51
2 Terenzo Bozzone NZL 08:42:44
3 Mathias Hecht SWI 08:46:24
4 Keegan Williams NZL 08:55:41
5 Petr Vabrousek CZE 09:04:30
6 Hiroyuki Nishiuchi JPN 09:24:17
7 Tuukka Miettinen FIN 09:27:59
8 Scott Curry CAN 09:40:52
9 Brent Foster NZL 09:43:01
10 Rich Munro AUS 09:43:11
11 Heinrich Sickl AUT 09:46:31
12 James Bowstead NZL 09:52:15
13 John Carey AUS 09:59:37
14 Matt Burgess NZL unrated
15 Gavin Scott NZL unrated
16 Scott McGregor NZL unrated
17 Kerry Weeks NZL unrated

Based on the ratings, Cameron Brown still has to be considered the favorite. However, Terenzo Bozzone and Mathias Hecht are not so far off that Cam can be certain to win for the 10th time. After these three athletes, Keegan Williams and Petr Vabrousek may be good enough for a podium finish if one of the top 3 ranked athletes run into issues. After the top 5, the field is not very deep and the ratings are quite a bit slower than the top athletes.

There will be more ….

As noted above, I’m working on some more information:

  • predictions for the women’s race
  • details on the results I have on file for the participants

Please let me know in the comments if there is something else that you’d like to know and that I may be able to answer by analyzing the athlete’s previous results.

TTR – Adding female Pros and IM Florida

I’ve put some more work into TTR – Thorsten’s Triathlon Rating. With IM Florida I added a third course (and six more races from 2005 to 2010) and I also managed to include female pros.

The amount of data is getting quite impressive by now:

  • 3 courses (IM Hawaii, IM Arizona and IM Florida)
  • 19 races (6 times each for Hawaii and Florida, 7 races for Arizona)
  • 632 athletes (412 male and 220 female)
  • 1,513 individual results

One thing that I have to think of now is to make sure that I’m working on high quality data – I was able to catch a few obvious problems, but I have to do some more systematic work on that.

An interesting little tidbit: The athlete with the most results in my database is Petr Vabrousek with 14 results! He’s also way ahead of the next athletes, who “only” have 9 races (Christophe Bastie, Michael Lovato, Heather Gollnick and Tamara Kozulina).

Adding IM Florida and new male TOP10

Adding IM Florida did not require any changes in the methodology. So the changes in the TOP10 are a reflection of the Florida results:

  • As was to be expected, IM Florida is another fast course, in fact it is even faster than Arizona (course rating: 25:53, compared to 20:38 for Arizona and 3:57 for Hawaii)
  • Dirk Bockel moved a few spots down with his 8:21 in Florida 2010 (which was adjusted to an 8:44).
  • Raynard Tissink fell out of the top 10 – his two great Kona results were joined by a not-too-stellar 8:40 in Florida 2009. He was replaced by Rasmus Henning.

Here is the new (male) TOP10 list:

Rank Name Rating # Races
1 McCormack, Chris 08:20:57 5
2 Alexander, Craig 08:20:58 4
3 Raelert, Andreas 08:24:05 3
4 Llanos, Eneko 08:29:15 5
5 Al-Sultan, Faris 08:29:40 6
6 Bockel, Dirk 08:34:04 3
7 Bracht, Timo 08:34:58 6
8 Vanhoenacker, Marino 08:35:47 5
9 Henning, Rasmus 08:35:58 3
10 Potts, Andy 08:36:37 3

Macca is still in the #1 spot, but it’s getting very close between him and Crowie.

Adding female Pros: Women’s TOP10

The main challenge this time was adding the females into the mix. I wanted the male results to be pretty stable and not change much when the women were added into the mix. It was clear that there would be some small changes in the course ratings and adjustments for the race, but I wanted these to be pretty small. In order to achieve this, I had to play a bit around with the calculations until I settled on a slightly changed algorithm. (The change is a bit technical: The adjustments are calculated as a percentage of race time instead of absolute change in seconds. In order to show a course rating as a time, that percentage has to be changed back to a time by applying it to a 9 hour race.)

With this new results and updated algorithm, here are the women’s TOP10:

Rank Name Rating Last Race # Races Total Rank
1 Wellington, Chrissie 09:01:40 IM Arizona on 2010-11-21 4 54
2 Carfrae, Mirinda 09:07:51 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 2 67
3 Van Vlerken, Yvonne 09:28:09 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 2 114
4 Jones, Michellie 09:29:42 IM Arizona on 2008-04-13 4 119
5 Steffen, Caroline 09:32:19 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 2 133
6 Berasategui, Virginia 09:33:21 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 4 136
7 McGlone, Samantha 09:34:09 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 4 141
8 Thuerig, Karin 09:35:33 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 2 146
9 Preston, Rebecca 09:35:55 IM Hawaii on 2007-10-13 2 148
10 Lawn, Joanna 09:38:58 IM Hawaii on 2010-10-09 6 153

The first two spots are not a surprise – Chrissie and Rinnie are currently the top athletes. What is interesting is the large gap to the next spots – more than 20 minutes! For me, Michellie in #4 was a bit of a surprise – her last race was in 2008 and to me I did not really think of her as an active athlete that might show up in the ratings.

Another interesting thing is the Total Rank that shows how the females would rank in all athletes (i.e. male and female). Chrissie, for example would be ranked #54 – which means that there are 53 males that have a better rating than she has. Even if some of her great results from Roth are not in the database yet, it’s hard to see her crack the Top10 in Hawaii or the male ratings.
