Ironman 70.3 Boise results 2014

Being at or near the top of the Ironman 70.3 Boise results 2014 would mean some valuable Kona Ranking Points for some of the excellent field of pros entered in the race.

We’re well into the qualifying season for the 2014 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii and Mont Tremblant, Quebec and time is beginning to run out.

Bevan Docherty and Liz Lyles topped the 2013 version of 70.3 Boise.

Liz Lyles was back to defend her title, but Bevan Docherty was not. However Brent McMahon and Luke Bell have returned to take a run at top spot.

Ben Hoffman and Craig Alexander were late withdrawals from the race.

Much as expected it was Brent McMahon leading the way onto the bike course. Kevin Everett was right with him with Josh Amberger just eleven seconds behind the leader in third place.

The bike proved to be a close affair as the pro men seemed to be taking a “wait and see” attitude and nobody was creating a significant gap at the front of the field.

All the favorites were within striking distance of the lead and it would be a race decided by who could maintain the fastest pace over the 21k run course as heat and fatigue became a factor.

Luke Bell, Brent McMahon, Trevor Wurtelle, and Maik Tweksiek all began the run virtually together.

It wasn’t long before Bell, McMahon, and Wurtelle broke away and early on it became obvious that the winner would come from these three pro men.

With just two miles to run it was Brent McMahon and Trevor Wurtele dueling it out for the lead with Luke Bell dropping back into third place.

It’s Brent McMahon winning it in a very close race over Trevor Wurtele.

He just won the Hawaii 70.3 last weekend as well. Great job for the Canadian star.

Wurtele came in just seconds behind him.

For the pro women, Kate Bevilaqua and Melanie McQuaid looked like the two most likely to unseat Liz Lyles as Ironman 70.3 Boise title holder.

Meredith Kessler was highly favored to challenge for the win but also withdrew from the race.

Olesya Prystayko and Janelle Morrison have also returned to Boise and last year they placed fifth and seventh respectively.

It makes sense that Kate Bevilaqua and Melanie McQuaid led the way after the first transition as they have both been racing very well, but Last years champion Liz Lyles was just 30 seconds back of the two leaders.

Melanie McQuaid was part of a quartet of Canadian pros who descended on the Big Island for Ironman 70.3 Hawaii 2014 and she was up against some of the best.

She had a great race and was full value for her third place finish behind Angela Naeth and Bree Wee.

In Boise McQuaid showed no signs of tiring and was getting away from the field and by the 25 mile mark was over two minutes ahead of last years winner Liz Lyles. Kate Bevilaqua was another two minutes back in third place.

Erin Green, Jenny Fletcher, and Olesya Prystayko were all in the mix for a podium spot on their best effort.

Melanie McQuaid proved to be strongest of all and late in the race had a commanding lead over the rest of the field and went on to win to make it a Canadian sweep.

Her official finish time was 04:24:07.
