Ironman 70.3 San Juan results 2013

It was the deepest field of pros since Ironman Hawaii 2012 who fought it out for top spot in the Ironman 70.3 San Juan results 2013.

On Sunday March 17 2013, the Ironman season began in earnest with WTC races coming thick and fast from now until the World Championships in the Fall of 2013.

A 1.9km point-to-point swim in the protected waters of Condado Lagoon kicked off the race and featured temperatures in the mid 70’s and a course that was configured to be spectator friendly.

San Juan 2013 featured many top pro male and female triathletes.


There were some challenging rollers on the 90km bike course that took the triathletes to the north of the island toward Dorado.

The 21km run course was two-loops and gave the runners the opportunity to take in some spectacular views of the Atlantic and well as the amazing historical Architecture that makes Old San Juan so special and a great place to visit.

Hopefully some of the athletes had the opportunity to stay for a few days after the race.

Svenja Bazen of Germany used her 2:15:43 bike split to grab the lead for the pro women as they reached the bike/run transition.

However, Helle Frederiksen was right with her, with Camilla Pedersen several minutes back in third place. Many of the major contenders were seemingly already too far back to be factors in the final outcome of the race.

It apeared that Mirinda Carfrae had dropped out of the race somewhere on the bike course, but may have run into mechanical problems as she is still in the race but far back.

Andrew Starykowicz came from behind and crossed the finish line first and is the Ironman 70.3 San Juan champion for 2013.

Really happy for Andrew as he was on his way to a top finish in Abu Dhabi 2012 when he was involved in an unfortunate accident with a volunteer and suffered several serious injuries.

Well, Andrew is back and good for him.

He is an amazing cyclist and it looks like his running is getting just as good. He will be a force to be reckoned with for some time to come.

Ben Collins who was leading the run at the transition ended up far back. Bertrand Billard took second place, and Timothy O’Donnell was third.
