Top pros race for podium spots in Ironman 70.3 South Africa results 2017.

The day for age-group and pro triathletes began with a 1.2-mile swim that took place at Ocean Beach. From there they launched themselves onto a very challenging hilly 56-mile bike course.

Once off their bikes they were faced with a two-loop 13.1-mile run course that was relatively flat and fast.

James Cunnama headed up a very strong contingent of male pros as the gun sounded to begin the race. The South African dominated start list would no doubt have their hands full with Romain Guillaume of France if he was in top form.

There were also strong entries from Great Britain, Hungary, and Switzerland.
