The 2013 Ironman race season is drawing to a close with Ironman Arizona being the last Ironman of the year to take place in North America.

Ironman Cozumel takes place on December 1 and the honor of being the last full Ironman race of the season goes to Busselton, Western Australia on December 8 with Ironman 70.3 Canberra being the last WTC event of the year when the starting gun sounds on December 15.

It was little surprising to see Victor Del Corral racing so soon after winning Ironman Florida 2013 and time will tell how much chasing down Andrew Starykowicz in Florida will impact his race today.

It didn’t look great for him at the beginning as he was five minutes behind the leaders when he entered the swim/bike transition, but his strongest discipline is the run and he recorded a blistering fast marathon time of 2:37 in Ironman Florida.

Joe Umphenour led a group of ten male pros out of the water and they were separated by just 17 seconds so it was a mass charge into transition one.

In the early going on the bike the lead changed hands several times. Denis Chevrot started out with the lead, but Matt Reed and Johann Ackermann also took turns up front.

However it was Jordan Rapp who eventually stormed to the front near the half-way point of the 112-mile bike course. He held a slight advantage over Matt Charbot and Pedro Gomes with Johan Ackerman and Matt Reed falling over two minutes back of the lead.

Jordan Rapp had a tough day in Kona in the World Championships and had to pull out of the race. One would think that he would be primed for a top effort in Arizona.

With most of the bike course behind them, it was Jordan Rapp and Pedro Gomes riding virtually together and creating a gap of over three minutes on the rest of the field.

And surprise, surprise, Victor Del Corral had moved himself into fourth place and was just five minutes back of the leaders in the closing stages of the bike. Would he be able to run down the leaders after his all-out effort for victory in Ironman Florida just two weeks ago?

What a bike split by Jordan Rapp. His time of 4:14:46 breaks the course record held by Andrew Starykowicz.

It was hard to believe but in an amazing display of fitness,durability, and race recovery, Victor Del Corral of Spain made up six minutes on Rapp and took over the lead near the halfway point of the 26.2-mile run.

Hard to imagine that he ran a 2:37 Ironman Marathon just two weeks ago.

Pedro Gomez held down the third position but was over three minutes behind the leader Del Corral who was beginning to pull away.

There was no stopping Victor Del Corral and once again he posts a sensational marathon time and is the winner of Ironman Arizona 2013, his second Ironman victory in two weeks. His official winning time is 8:02 with a marathon split of 2:43:59.

Meredith Kessler and Amanda Stevens are two of the fastest pro women swimmers in the world and proved it on Sunday by coming in first and second.

Michelle Vesterby was about three minutes back of Kessler and is coming off a very solid eighth-place finish in the 2013 Ironman Hawaii World Championships and she figured to be challenging for a podium spot today.

It seems safe to assume that Michelle is in perhaps the best shape of her career and will be one to watch in the upcoming 2014 season.

It the early stages of the bike course Merdith Kessler retained her lead over Amanda Stevens but as expected, it was Michelle Vesterby making a strong move toward the front.

It seemed like it was quickly becoming a four-woman race. Meredith Kessler, Michelle Vesterby, Amanda Stevens, and Julia Gajer who was in fourth place and 3:38 back of the lead. From there it was Piampiano who was almost ten minutes back.

However at the half-way point of the 112-mile bike course Kessler and Vesterby were creating a gap between themselves and Stevens who had fallen 3:20 off the pace with Gajer now over five minutes back of the lead with the gap growing with every mile.

With just twenty miles left to ride it was Kessler and Vesterby with a lead of almost seven minutes over Amanda Stevens who was riding in third.

Kessler took a lead of almost one minute onto the run course and began to increase her lead over Vesterby. Julia Gajer of Germany was in third and slowly gaining on the two leaders.

Nearing the halfway point of the marathon it looked like Kessler had the race pretty much won, but Gajer of Germany was coming on strong.

By the 15-mile mark she had passed Michelle Vesterby and had her sights set on Kessler who was about four minutes ahead of her, but Kessler is well known for having another gear late in the marathon.

With about nine miles left to run Kessler’s lead over Gajer was cut down to 2:45. Vesterby was still not out of it was was in third place 3:39 behind the leader.

With three miles left to go Julia Gajer of Germany was just 20 seconds behind Kessler and with less than two miles left takes the lead and begins to pull away from Kessler and goes on to take top spot in the Ironman Arizona results 2013 in a time of 8:52:49.
