Top European pros race for podium spots in Ironman Wales results 2016.

An excellent pro field arrived in Pembrokeshire on Sunday September 18 to race for prize money and Kona Ranking points.

An enthusiastic field of age-group athletes was also on hand to take on one of the more challenging Ironman races on the WTC circuit. Forty 2017 World Championship qualifying spots were up for grabs for the top age-group finishers in the Ironman Wales results 2016.

The winners of Ironman Wales 2015 were Anja Beranek and Jesse Thomas. Neither were on hand to defend their titles and new champions would be crowned in 2016.

Phillip Graves of Great Britain was most likely considered among the favorites to lead the podium parade for the pro men as the gun sounded to begin the race. However there were several other pros in the race capable of winning it all on their best effort.

Danielsson, Karl-Johan

Niederreiter, Daniel
Oriet, Gilian
Rohan-Gates, Dominic
Schifferle, Mike
Vandermoere, Hannes

It was Daniel Niederreiter leading the way out of the water for the pro men in a time of 45:25. However he had some company as Phillip Graves was just two seconds behind him in second and Karl-Johan Danielsson was four seconds back in third place.

Philip Graves made up a lot of time on the bike course. He went from one of three pro men entering transition one virtually tied after the swim to having a lead of over five minutes to himself once the marathon began.

Then at about 35.5k he made the pass to take over first place in the race for the podium in the Ironman Wales results 2016.

Diana Riesler of Germany would be a logical favorite for a top podium spot in the Ironman Wales results 2016, but Jeanne Colonge of France, and Great Britain’s Kate Comber would be worthy challengers.
