Ironman 70.3 Mandurah Australian Championship results 2013

On Sunday November 10 a strong group of pros and over 1300 age-group athletes competed in Mandurah, West Australia to earn their spot in the Ironman 70.3 Mandurah Australian Championship results 2013.

Mandurah is the second largest city in Western Australia and is approximately 70 kilometers South of Perth, the state capital.

For the pro men it seemed that Terenzo Bozzone would be the one to beat as he appeared to be back in fine form after suffering through injuries for an extended period in the past couple of years but his second-place finish in the 2013 70.3 World Championships indicated that he is back in business.

Challenges were expected to come from Greg Bennett, Tim Reed, Tim Berkel, and possibly Brad Kahlefeldt who is fairly new to the long distance races but did extremely well during his ITU racing career.

Seven pro men came out of the water virtually together under perfect swim conditions. Terenzo Bozzone officially led the way with a time of 21:15.

Other race favorites Greg Bennett, Tim Reed, and Tim Berkel were also in the lead pack as the men made their way onto the 56-mile bike course.

It was Terenzo Bozzone taking the lead in the early stages with Tim Berkel and Casey Munroe in the second and third spots. Tim Reed had some bad luck and had a flat and had fell back of the leaders.

Bozzone held the lead as the pro men entered the second transition but Greg Bennett and Tim Berkel were not far behind.

Bozzone stayed strong on the run and stretched his lead to almost a minute and a half over second place Tim Berkel at the halfway point of the run and there was no catching him on this day and Terenzo Bozzone comes out on top of the Ironman 70.3 Mandurah Australian Championship results 2013.

Tim Berkel won the race in 2012 but was unable to catch Bozzone and settled for second place. Sam Appleton came charging at the end and rounded out the podium.

Going into the 2013 season the main objective for Melissa Hauschildt was to do well at the 2013 Ironman 70.3 World Championship and of course she won the race by a full five minutes.

One would think this would be a pressure free race for her, but if she relaxes too much it will be no cakewalk to repeat as Mandura 70.3 Champion with excellent pros entered in the race who are sure to challenge her for top spot on the podium.

It would be no surprise to see Liz Blatchford or Annabelle Luxford come charging on the run course. Blatchford would love nothing better than to move up a notch from her second place finish in the 2012 edition of Ironman Mandurah. Hauschildt edged her by just over a minute in 2012 as they posted finish times of 4:03:55 and 4:04:45 respectively in the 2012 race.

Kate Bevilaqua was racing on home turf can never be discounted as she has enjoyed a banner year as a pro in 2013 and is a threat to be on the podium in pretty much any race she enters if she’s on her game. Earlier in the season Bevilaqua came away with a victory in Ironman Louisville 2013 after coming off back-to-back podium finishes in 70.3 Lakes Stevens and 70.3 Muncie.

THE PRO WOMEN RACE

For the pro women it was a far different story as Radka Vodickova pulled away a bit to take an eight second lead heading into the swim/bike transition. From there the top five women were spread out.

It appeared early on that race for top spot among the pro women would be decided on the run course as nobody was making a clean break at the front of the pack. Annabel Luxford, Radka Vodickova, and Melissa Hauschildt were all together at the front with just seconds separating them.

As the race wore on Melissa Hauschildt took over the lead from Luxford and began to create some distance over the rest of the field.

According to race reports the temperatures were soaring and the athletes were in for a very hot run as Hauschildt lead the way into the bike/run transition with a lead of just over one minute over Annabel Luxford.

As the run progressed Hauschildt continued to extend her lead and looked well on her way to her ninth win of the season. What a great year and what a great competitor.

She goes on to victory with an excellent time of 4:03:46.
