Strong pro field races for podium in Ironman 70.3 Calgary results 2016.

One of the strongest pro fields to take to the water in Calgary was featured in the Ironman 70.3 Calgary results 2016.

Both the pro male and female fields were overwhelmingly American with just a handful of pros carrying Canadian hopes of podium finishes.

Jeff Symonds appeared to be Canada’s best hope for the pro men, but he would be up against seasoned pros Trevor Delsaut, Matt Lieto, and Paul Matthews.

For the pro men it was Josh Amberger of Australia leading the way in the 1.9k swim. His time of 22:04 gave him a lead of one minute over second place Jarrod Shoemaker of the USA. Fellow American Matt Lieto was third out of the water just over two minutes behind the leader.

Steve Mantell and Matt Lieto of the USA were in a close battle for second and third. Nathan Killam was the highest placed Canadian in fourth place, but had lots of ground to make up if he wanted to make the podium in the Ironman 70.3 Calgary results 2016.

For the pro women as the gun sounded to begin the 1.2-mle swim in Auburn Bay Lake in South Calgary it fell on Canadian pros Malinda Elmore, Alexandra Gordichuk, and Rachel McBride to carry the Canadian hope in a predominately American female pro field.

It would be a surprise if anyone but Rachel McBride left the bike/run transition first as she is one of the fastest Canadian female pros on any bike course.

To nobody’s surprise it was Canadian Rachel McBride moving up from eighth in the swim to challenge for first place on the bike course. At about the 50k mark of the 90k bike leg McBride was less than 20 seconds back of the leader Jennifer Spieldenner of the USA.

McBride had a narrow lead as she entered the bike/run transition. Although her bike time was almost three minutes faster than Spieldenner, her swim was about three minutes slower so they were virtially neck-and-neck as they began the 21k run.
