Ronnie Schildknecht, Jordan Rapp, Matt Hanson(run course record holder), Andreas Raelert, and Chris Mcdonald were just a few of the pro men with legitimate shots at earning top spot on the podium in the Ironman Texas results 2015.

It didn’t take long for Jeremy Jurkiewicz to establish himself on the lead. He was in front in the early stages of the 112-mile bike with Todd Skipworth and Faris Al-Sultan in second and third.

Al-Sultan moved into second place.

However it was Ben Hoffman who soon surged past the three leaders to take over the lead.

Jordan Rapp pulled out of the race early in the bike.

At mile 95 there was quite a shuffle in the lead positions.

Faris Al-Sultan also dropped out of the race and it was Joe Skipper with the lead as bike/run transition neared.

Lionel Sanders was in second place and Ben Hoffman was just over two minutes back in third. Todd Skipworth, Brandon Barrett, Jeremy Plese, Matt Hanson and Jeremy Jurkiewicz were seven minutes or more behind the leader, but with the heat taking it’s toll were still well within striking distance.

At the nine mile mark of the run it was still Joe Skipper in first and Lionel Sanders just over one minute behind but within the next few miles the lead stretched to two minutes.

With the run half over the lead was 2:54 for Skipper. Sanders was still in second, but Matt Hanson was running well in third less than a minute further back.

Ben Hoffman was over seven minutes back of the leader in fourth and the rest of the field were far back.

Matt Hanson just kept on charging and took over the lead and by the 18 mile mark he had increased it to just over one minute over Joe Skipper who had led for much of the run.

Hanson has the run course record for Ironman Texas of just over 2:41 and will be hard to catch and looked at this point in the race that he could well finish the race in under eight hours.

Sanders was in third and still in the chase for a podium spot.

Ronnie Schildknecht moved into fourth place but was over 11 minutes back of the leader.

Matt Hanson could not be caught and takes top spot in the Ironman Texas 2015 results won the race in a new course record 8:07:03(official time).

THE RACE-pro women

Considering her 2014 finish time, it would take an exceptional race to beat Kelly Williamson if she managed to repeat her sub-nine hour performance.

This however appears to be a a far deeper and more formidable field than the one Williamson faced in 2014.

Especially considering that Rachel Joyce, Angela Naeth, Leana Cave, and Heather Wurtelle were not entered last year.

56:15...............Heather Wurtele 
56:16...............Bree Wee

For the pro women it was Leanda Cave in front in the early going on the bike course

The 112-mile bike unfolded far differently for the pro women as opposed to the men who had a pack at the front.

For the women it was Leanda Cave and Rachel Joyce leading the way at the 30-mile mark.

Katy Blakemore was 23 seconds behind the leader, Wurtelle of Canada over two minutes back with Angela Naeth, also of Canada, 17 seconds behind Wurtelle in fifth.

In the late stages of the bike it was Angela Naeth of Canada in the lead with Leanda Cave right behind her. Rachel Joyce was another two minutes back in third place. Then it was Blakemore, Abraham, and Wurtele.

Wurtele was a full five minutes back of the leader and given her tremendous running abilities was most likely exactly where she wanted to be.

Historically Ironman Texas is a race that makes those who go out too fast pay for it in before the day is done.

The race for top spot in the Ironman Texas results 2015 was between Great Britain and Canada as they occupied the first five positions after the bike.

TOP FIVE WOMEN-BIKE FINISH

5:43:25.................Angela Naeth CAN
5:43:30.................Leanda Cave GBR
5:46:58.................Corinne Abraham GBR
5:48:15.................Rachel Joyce GBR
5:50:18.................Heather Wurtele CAN

2014 champion Kelly Williamson has 20 minutes to make up after the bike.

Bree Wee has dropped out of the race.

Angela Naeth of Canada is once again displaying her running ability and by the 15 mile mark of the run had increased her lead to over two minutes on Leanda Cave of Great Britain who was still holding down second place.

Rachel Joyce also of Great Britain was holding down third spot but was over seven minutes behind the leader.

Corinne Abraham was in fourth and Heather Wurtele was fifth over 14 minutes back and did not seem to be able to make her patented charge on the run course.

Naeth continued to increase the gap and with 4 miles left to run had a lead of just over 3 minutes on Leanda Cave.

Wurtele was passed by Kelly Williamson who ran herself into the fourth spot in the late stages of the marathon. She was 3:50 behind Rachel Joyce at the 22 mile mark.

Angela Naeth of Canada crosses the finish line first and takes the top spot on the podium in the Ironman Texas results 2015 and has won herself a spot in the World Championships in Kona in the Fall of 2015.

Leanda Cave has another great race and takes second place.
