Abu Dhabi Triathlon results 2013

The Abu Dhabi Triathlon results 2013 are very telling because they clearly show the pro triathletes who are in great shape and at top potential this early in the year.

As in past years, the grueling 200km bike course would mostly favor the stronger cyclists. This is especially true when you consider the run is only 20km(two laps)compared to the full-distance marathon of the Ironman Triathlon.

Andrew Starykowicz posted a sensational bike time of 04:28:51 in 2012 but was unable to continue on in the race due to injury.

The 200km bike was proceeded by a 3km swim.
