Toldi had plenty of company as there were four others within ten seconds of him. Those four included Andrew Starykowicz who normally prefers to be at the front in the bike as soon as possible.

It was no surprise to see Andrew Starykowicz pull away from the rest of the field on the 56-mile bike course. At the 30 mile mark his lead was over three minutes.

He was being tracked by Matt Chrabot and TJ Tollakson who were neck and neck for second place. The rest of the male pros had lots of work to do as they were all over six minutes or more off the leaders pace with the bike half over.

A very strong tailwind was expected for the return trip on the bike. It could just be one of the fastest 70.3 bike splits recorded in some time. You never know. Starykowicz just might average 35 MPH with a strong wind at his back.

He will most likely need more than a three minute lead beginning the run as there are some strong runners in this male pro group capable of catching him.

Pretty quick split of 1:57:56 posted by Starykowicz as he takes the lead onto the run course and he has just what he needs…a lead of over eight minutes on second place Matt Chrabot.

Taylor Reid of Canada moved into second place nearing the halfway point of the run but had lots of work to do if he wanted to challenge for first place in the Ironman 70.3 New Orleans results 2016. Starykowicz stilled maintained a lead of seven minutes.

A few weeks ago in Ironman 70.3 Texas 2016 Starykowicz posted a 1:58:44 bike split but Lionel Sanders of Canada was fastest of all with a time of 1:58:09 and would go on to win.

Andrew Starykowicz is the winner of Ironman 70.3 New Orleans 2016 in a time of 3:46:52. Taylor Reid of Canada holds off Matt Chrabot to claim second place.
