Julia Gajer and Patrick Lange top Ironman Texas results 2016 and are North American Champions.

Severe weather impacted the Woodlands bike course and it was necessary to shorten the course from 112 miles to 94 miles. All awards for top finishers in the Ironman Texas 2016 results stayed the same.

As well as prize money there were 4000 Pro ranking points up for grabs. Top age-group athletes also had the opportunity to race for 70 Ironman Hawaii 2016 World Championship slots.

The winners or Ironman Texas 2015 were Matt Hanson and Angela Naeth.

The race for top spot among the male pros promised to be hotly contested because of the star-studded line-up. There were over two dozen entries from Europe in the race. Any number of them were capable of winning it all on their best effort.

Matt Hanson, Andrew Starykowicz and Jordan Rapp of the USA both went into the race as strong podium possibilities. Matt Hanson would be defending the title he won in 2015 when he crossed the line in a time of 8:07:03.

The Canadians were noticeable by their absence this year. Angela Naeth did not return to defend her title and Lionel Sanders who finished fourth in 2015 also did not return.

Many of the top Canadian pros raced in the Ironman St. George 70.3 North American Championship just a week ago and acquitted themselves well. Heather Wurtele won it all for the pro women and Magali Tisseyre was fourth and missed the podium by two minutes.

Lionel Sanders of Canada took top spot for the pro men and Brent McMahon was fifth in a closely contested race.

Clemente Alonso-mckernan had the fastest official finish time in the swim but he had plenty of company. Just 19 seconds separated the top ten pro men in the swim.

As expected it was Andrew Starykowicz taking control on the bike course. He had a chase pack of almost two dozen riders trying to catch up with him. His lead at the 76 mile mark was hhhhalmost twelve minutes.

With so many riders in a tight pack chasing the leader there were many drafting time penalties to serve.

Starykowicz began the run with a lead of 14:23 over Jordan Rapp. There was actually a chase pack of 14 pro men all within 28 seconds of each other. Would any of them be able to run down the leader Starykowicz and claim top spot in the Ironman Texas results 2016?

The lead quickly began to fade when Starykowicz began to walk and Patrick Lange moved in and the race was on as all the chasers closed the gap.

Patrick Lange was strongest by far in the run with a sizzling 2:40:01 marathon. Pretty hard for anyone to match that and he is the deserving winner of top spot on the podium in the Ironman Texas results 2016.

The race for top spot among the pro women was wide open. As the gun sounded to begin the race Julia Gajer of Germany and Rebekah Keat of Australia appeared to have the inside track on podium spots in the Ironman Texas results 2016.

Lauren Brandon of the USA is usually in the mix in the early going and could also be a big factor in the race. Kelly Williamson posted a time of 9:08:34 in 2015. It was good enough for fourth place and she will be trying to move up a few spots.

The swim result for the pro women was far different from the pro men. Lauren Brandon dominated the swim and was the only female pro to break the 50 minute mark with her very fast time of 48:32. Her time was fastest among both pro men and women. It was also a new swim course record.

Lauren Brandon continued to expand her lead on the bike course and at the 54-mile mark was eight minutes ahead of Alicia Kaye who was in second. Julia Gajer was third at this point and another 46 seconds behind the leader. Rebekah Keat was in fourth.

At the 76 mile mark of the bike Julia Gajer had closed the gap to 6:56. Alicia Kaye was still in the mix but had been passed by Gajer and was 7:52 off the pace in third. It was shaping up to be a great race for top spot in the Ironman Texas results 2016.

Julia Gajer continued to close the gap on the leader.

As expected, Julia Gajer was the one to beat for the pro women and nobody was able to match her steady performance in all three disciplines. She crossed the finish line first five minutes ahead of Jodie Robertson in the Ironman Texas results 2016.
