When the gun sounded on Sunday August 25 to set off a sold-out field in the hunt for a spot in the Ironman Canada Whistler results 2013 it officially marked the end of the historic and much-loved Ironman in Penticton, British Columbia and the beginning of a new era in Ironman racing in Canada.

Now it’s time for Whistler to take over the title of Ironman Canada and there was plenty of interest in this race. How cold would the water be? Just how hilly would the bike course be? How fast would the pros navigate the course?

This is a race that really had no clearly defined pre-race favorites. Unlike Ironman Mont-Tremblant where Luke Bell and Mary Beth Ellis went in as pre-race favorites, there was no way to really predict who would come out on top of the Ironman Canada Whistler results 2013.

The two-loop 2.4-mile swim takes place in Alta Lake in Rainbow Park with a temperature in the mid-60′s F. expected.

The 112-mile bike course was one-loop and by all indications would be challenging. It certainly is not a bike course built for speed like Ironman Texas for instance, but rather more like Lake Placid with it’s hilly terrain.

Paul Amey is the unknown factor in this race as he raced in Mont-Tremblant and much would depend on how he recovers in one week. To win may not be his goal, but rather to place as high as he can and gain some Kona Ranking Points.

In a way that leaves the door open to Ironman Canada-Penticton 2012 winner Mathew Russell, Bryan Rhodes, Bruno Clerbout, or Perhaps Matt Lieto to take a run at the top of the podium. And lets not forget about Trevor Wurtelle who will most likely be the crowd favorite as he calls British Columbia home.

The race for podium spots among the pro women is also wide open. It all depends who happens to be on their game on race-day because there is no clear favorite in the race.

However, Uli Bromme figured to be really tough in this race and might have been given the slight edge as the one to beat.

Best of luck to Olesya Prystayko of the Ukraine who is also racing back-to-back as she raced in Mont-Tremblant as well. Olesya is in her first year of professional Ironman racing and is proudly sponsored by IronStruck.com.

THE RACE

As was pretty much expected, the athletes would be dealing with cold temperatures early in the race. With the temperatures hovering in the 50C degree area in the hour of so before the race it would most likely be arm-warmers and jackets early on the 112-mile bike course until things warmed up, with temperatures expected to reach the 70′s later in the day.

It was Bryan Rhodes leading the way out of the water for the pro men with a time of 48:45. He had a 20-second lead over Dominik Berger and Andrew Russell came out of the water in third place.

At the 36-mile mark of the bike course it was Dominik Berger with a slight edge of about 15 seconds over Bryan Rhodes and by 52 miles the lead was 55 seconds for Berger, but less than four minutes stood between the seventh place rider and the leader.

At 70 miles it was still anyone’s race as nobody was managing to create a large gap. Mathew Russell had a 20-second but there was a chase pack of four right behind him. Trevor Wurtele, Matt Lieto, Paul Amey, and Dominik Berger were all in the hunt.

Several of the pro men are into transition virtually together and it will be whoever can run the fastest marathon that decides the inaugural Ironman Canada Whistler winner. There is no huge buffer for anyone in this race.

Matt Lieto, Trevor Wurtele, Matthew Russell, and Nigel Gray are all in the mix for the win.

Trevor Wurtele was the first to assert himself on the run and at the seven mile mark had established a lead of almost 45 seconds on Matthew Russell with Matt Lieto over four minutes back in third place. By the time he reached the 16-mile mark he had a lead of over three minutes on Matt Russell.

Nobody was catching Trevor Wurtele today and he comes out on top of the Ironman Canada Whistler results 2013 with an excellent time of 8:39:33.
