Ironman 70.3 Muncie results 2014

The Ironman 70.3 Muncie Results 2014 featured a few surprises as the defending champions were both defeated.

Magali Tisseyre and Andrew Starykowicz returned to Muncie in an attempt to defend the title they won in Ironman Muncie 2013.

Check out the results for Ironman 70.3 Muncie 2015.

It’s never a dull race when you have super-cyclist Andrew Starykowicz at the start line. It was sure to be no different on Saturday July 12 when several top pros had their hands full staying with Starykowicz on the 66-mile bike course.

Starykowicz is not just all about the bike as his running steadily improves and if he has too much of a lead coming out of the bike/run transition the top of the podium in the Ironman 70.3 Muncie Results 2014 might be decided early.

However there were also several very strong pro male bikers in the field who were quite capable of staying close to Starykowicz and in that case the outcome would be much different. Starykowicz is running well these days but would most likely need a head start of several minutes in order to lead the way to the finish line.

THE RACE

Josh Amberger of Australia was first out of the water followed closely by David Khan of the USA. They were the only two pro males who finished the swim under 24 minutes with times of 23:29 and 23:31 respectively.

As expected, Andrew Starykowicz was quickly in the lead on the bike course with Josh Amberger the only one managing to stay with him in the first half of the bike course.

What a great ride by Amberger as he stayed close to Starykowicz right to the bike/run transition and then quickly took over the lead and began to create a gap on the run course.

Lionel Sanders passed Starykowicz and took over second place and quickly caught up to Amberger and at the halfway point of the run they were running side-by-side. It became a race for first, second, and third as the rest of the field was far back of the three leaders.

Lionel Sanders took charge in the last half of the run and is the winner of Ironman 70.3 Muncie 2014.
