Ironman Masstricht-Limburg Results 2015

All-European pro field battle for top honors in Ironman Masstricht-Limburg results 2015.

It’s not often that you come across an Ironman event without as least a few North Americans, New Zealanders, or Australians, but on Sunday August 2, 2015 the race featured all European pros.

Part of the reason could be that Ironman 70.3 Philippines was taking place on the same day and attracted a star-studded field of pros from around the world.

Still, it promised to be a great day of racing in Maastricht with some of Europe’s top male pros battling it out for podium spots, prize money, and Kona Ranking points up for grabs in the Ironman Masstricht-Limburg results 2015.

Bas Dierden, Mike Schiffele, and Cyril Viennot were just a few of the pro men race favorites answering the starting gun on August 2, 2015 at the River Maas.
