Ironman Louisville Results 2015

The Ironman Louisville Results 2015 featured a great day of racing.

Ironman Louisville set to take place on Sunday October 11, 2015 in Kentucky and is another of the WTC Ironman races that have been designated age-group only, and like all the previous age-group only races it was expected to be a great success. It’s an opportunity for age-group athletes to take center stage as opposed to being in the shadow of the hype that is normally present when top pros are in the race.

It was touch and go for a while as there was a recreational use advisory warning in place for sections of the Ohio River that were part of the Ironman swim course. However on October 9 that advisory was lifted by the The Kentucky Division of Water and the Kentucky Department for Public Health and the race was allowed to go ahead as planned.

As the race got underway it was Timothy Frarer blazing through the 2.4-mile swim course in a time of 46:30. James Burke was very fast as well with his time of 46:47 for the 2nd fastest of the day. Hector Rodriquez was 3rd fastest overall for the men with his time of 49:07. They were the only three who came in under the 50 minute mark, and all three were competing in the 35-39 age-group.

As a matter of fact all three swim times were far faster than the Ironman Hawaii 2015 fastest swim posted one day earlier by pro Dylan McNeice of New Zealand when he stopped the clock at 50:48. Of course there is a bit of a difference between the Ohio River and the swells and currents of Kona Harbour, but still brilliant swim splits by Frarer, Burke and Rodriquez.

For the women it was Heidi Hatteberg with a time of 50:13 which proved to be the fastest time by over three minutes and also beat the fastest time of the day posted by pro men or women in Kona. Desiree Thomas finished the swim in 53:51 and Maria Gramelshacher was third in 53:57. All three women were part of the 25-29 age-group.

Robert Adams(45-49)had the fastest time on the 112-mile bike course with a 4:52:40 split. James Burke(35-39) is second once again with his time of 4:53:05. Michael Jentges(30-34) rounded out the top three when he stopped the clock at 4:55:40. Anytime you can break the five hour mark on an Ironman bike course it’s truly a sensational ride.

Christine Nichols(25-29) rode away with the top bike split with her excellent time of 5:26:06. Mindy Nicolet Moon(35-39)was second in another great time of 5:27:00 and Karla Gregg(40-44) was third in 5:30:47. So how fast did Ironman Champion Daniela Ryf of Switzerland do the 112-mile bike on the Queen K. in 90-100 degree heat? She had a time of 4:50:46. She followed it up with a 3:06 marathon that gave her the Ironman Hawaii victory by 13 minutes.

Did you know that American Lyn Lemaire was the first woman ever to cross the Ironman finish. She did it in 1979. She had a 1:16:20 swim, a 6:30 bike, and a 5:10 run. It might seem like her bike time was slow, but the interesting thing is that she was a premier cyclist. She held the U.S. National record for the 25 mile(40k)time trial. She had also biked from L.A. to Vancouver in her spare time. At one point in Ironman Hawaii 1979 she was only ten minutes behind the eventual winner Tom Warren. It’s a testament to how much training methods, diet, and most of all, bike technology have changed over the years. There was no titanium, or clipless pedals, or aerobars. But the Ironman trailblazers had unshakable spirit, boundless courage, and a desire to do something truly challenging and life-changing that brought us all in this great sport to where we are today.

The first triathlete across the finish line was James Burke(35-39) in a very fast time of 8:48:53. Check out his splits below…

00:46:47   04:53:05   02:58:21   08:48:53

Michael Jentges(30-34)of Germany was second in 9:08:23 and Jason Sandquist(45-49) of Canada was third in 9:24:33.

What a great finish for top spot among the age-group women!

The first woman to cross the finish line was Christine Nicols(25-29) with a time of 10:00:04. Second place went to Maria Gramelspacher(25-29) who was just 27 seconds behind in 10:00:31 and third was Mindy Nicholet Moon(25-29) in 10:02:29.

Here are the winners splits…….
