IRONMAN LANZAROTE RESULTS 2011

Timo Bracht comes from behind in the Ironman Lanzarote results 2011 and continues his amazing string of exceptional races.

It was no real surprise to see Timo Bracht cross the finish line first considering the great form he has shown lately.

However the manner in which he did it with an 8:30:34 clocking was astounding considering the course record set by Thomas Hellriegel in 1995 was 8:35:40. That’s a huge margin considering the degree of difficulty associated with Ironman Lanzarote.

Bracht had the lead over konstantin Bachor at the 10k mark of the marathon and the race was basically over as Bracht pulled away steadily until the finish line.

Rachel Joyce came out of the water with the lead among pro women and never looked back. It was an amazing display of front-running and a spectacular way to win a first Ironman competition.

As might be expected Natascha Badman came up a bit short and may not quite be in top form yet but had a great race just the same. Would not be a surprise at all to see Natascha get better and better as her conditioning improves.

Note that 3 age-groupers were in the top nine women overall. Awesome results. Maybe new pros in the making?

I was wondering what happened to Kate Bevalaqua as she sort of disappeared from the live feed. Kate had a great swim but unfortunately was stung my a bee on the bike course and she is allergic and her coach pulled her from the race.

However, knowing Kate, she will bounce back and have a great race next time out.

IRONMAN DAY IN LANZAROTE

Well to sum up the race it was a great showing for many athletes both pros and age-groupers for the 20th running of Ironman Lanzarote.

The winds were favorable this year but by all accounts the heat was quite oppressive for the marathon.

When interviewed, many triathletes who raced for the first time in Lanzarote claimed they had a great experience and they loved the island, volunteers, and spectators so much they plan on returning in 2012 to experience Ironman Lanzarote all over again.

Congratulations to all those who were part of the Ironman Lanzarote results 2011.
