Ironman Cozumel results 2013

Once the Ironman Cozumel results 2013 are in the books there will only be one Ironman race left to go until the break for the holidays.

The honor of hosting the last Ironman race of the year will go to Busselton, Western Australia on December 8.

The final WTC event will also be in Australia when the starting gun sounds to begin Ironman 70.3 Canberra on December 15.

Cozumel is truly stunning and when I had the opportunity to do some snorkeling their several years ago it brought back memories of snorkeling in Kona just behind the Sea Village Resort where I was staying.

Simply thousands of fish every color of the rainbow provided quite the setting for the Ironman Hawaii swim.

Cozumel is in the Caribbean Sea and what a great setting for an Ironman Triathlon.

There was really no overwhelming favorite in the pro male field as the start list featured several athletes quite capable of winning on their best effort. However, Amanda Stevens was given the edge as favorite for the women with her ability to create a gap in the swim and much would depend on whether or not she could hold off the faster cyclists in the field.

Cozumel is situated just over 15 miles from the Yucatan Peninsula and the race began with a single-loop 1.92-mile swim at Chankanaab Park Beach and is followed by a three-loop 112-mile bike and three-loop 26.2-mile run.

And yes that’s the swim distance…..and not a typo.

Anyway, it explains the super-fast times posted as the bike began.

TOP TEN PRO MEN LEAVING TRANSITION ONE

***The fastest swim of the day was posted by Todd Skipworth with a 32.49 clocking. He must swim a lot faster than he changes clothes because he was not one of the top ten pro men onto the bike course.

Michael Lovato holds the record for the fastest bike split in Ironman Cozumel. In 2011 he recorded a time of 4:19:17. Apparently Andrew Starykowicz has never done this race or the bike course record would be about 3:58 or something.

In the recent Ironman Florida 2013 Starykowicz blazed through the 112-mile bike in 4:02:17.

For comparisons sake that indicates just how short the swim course in Cozumel is Joe Umphenour was the fastest out of the water in Ironman Arizona 2013 with his swim time of 48:31 and Todd Skipworth swam Cozumel in 32:49.

The pro men who were behind Skipworth in the swim came out of the water in a fairly large pack and it was actually Tyler Butterfield who was first out of transition. After almost 45k of the bike course the top ten were within about 15 seconds of each other with Eneko Llanos taking over the lead and showing the way.

As the pro men passed over the 100k mark it was Michael Weiss of Austria who had powered his way to the front and soon had the lead by about three minutes over Eneko Llanos. Nils Frommhold and Marino Vanhoenacker rounded out the top four.

With just over 13 miles left to ride Weiss had a huge lead of almost eight minutes over Tyler Butterfield, Nils Frommhold, and Eneko Llanos who were in the chase group and he carried that lead right into transition two and onto the marathon course.

He maintained a lead of nine minutes with no signs of letting up as the kilometers passed.

There was no way anyone was going to catch him on this day and Michael Weiss comes out on top of the Ironman Cozumel results 2013 with a winning time of 7:55:23.

In the race for top spot among the pro women it was a familiar scenario that unfolded.

As is usually the case, Amanda Stevens was the first out of the water and it was up to the rest of the field to try and chase her down.

Stevens was still well in the lead at the 40k mark of the 180k bike course. As a matter of fact she extended her lead to five minutes over Celine Scharer who was riding in second.

Amanda Stevens is not all swim. On her best effort she can carry her lead all the way to the finish line as she did in Ironman Brazil 2013.

Oddly enough it was Haley Chura who posted the fastest swim time in Ironman Brazil by two minutes but Stevens stormed to the front on the bike course and never looked back.

However as the race wore on in Cozumel several very strong cyclists began to close on Amanda Stevens.

Although she was first onto the run course her big lead had become much smaller and it was Rachel Joyce finally overtaking her early in the run and extending her lead over the rest of the field as the race wore on.

Tine Deckers raced well for most of the day but was forced to drop out on the run course when it looked like she had a clear run at a podium spot.

Jesse Donavan had a great race as well and overtook Amanda Stevens for second place as the women entered the last half of the marathon, but she was still over five minutes back of leader Rachel Joyce.

Entering the last 5k of the marathon Joyce still held a sizable lead and by all reports was still running strong.

Rachel Joyce of the UK raced tough today and is the winner of Ironman Cozumel 2013.

Her official winning time is 8:52:28.
