IMWA - Race Updates


Recommended Posts

Am i missing something?

Jimmy C......???

 

Yes, no, and maybe Paul. Jimmy C, James Cousins, 58:13.

 

He didn't register his name & was under injury cloud, that's why he's not on the table.

 

Jo Ann Danne, Fe, 50-54, swam a 56. This is one of Australias remarkable athletes, already a course record holder at Forster.....the 56 swim was better than 1 lady pro, this lady has a 3:57 or near Marathon split at IM.....when she was 49 (2002)

 

From memory but it's accurate enough.

Whether the awesome running speed of Shortis can dent the six minutes separation will be an interesting question on the run...

 

And with Marissa Robbins spending five minutes in the penalty box for drafting, the women's race is all Rebehak Keat if she can emulate her run speed for a Half Ironman in the marathon today

 

It's down to 6, so Shortis on known form. But Jacobs & McKenzie are improvers and racing together at the front would have helped them.

 

Times have slowed due to big winds.

HERE COMES SHORTO!

 

Aussies love their 'nick names' and Shorto, Jason Shorts, is coming home like a steam train....with just a few kilometres he's closed to within 4:22 of the two leaders and his running speed spells a very exciting marathon ahead...

05:11

 

 

 

Can Jase make up the gap? Or will Jacobs and McKenzie hang on? Can these 2 run?

 

Heading off to work now, I'll check back in later.

Darn!  Support vehicle called out again (me) Wolfie and Mitch, 2 punctures, 1 tube....cardinal sin of cycling.. :lol: ! :D

Foxy L.

Puncture lesson number 1.

when only carrying one tube. (and no stick on patches as back up)

On the 2nd puncture, fold the tube over in a Z fashion ensuring you cover the hole. A rubber band around the tube to hold in place then pump up the tyre. Simple.

The tube expands and seals the hole itself and will at least allow you to ride home.

 

Yes it works very affective, in fact when I did it, there was still good pressure in the tube the following morning. So it seals very affective.

Spanky,

 

Nope as soon as you start to pump up the tube the rubber band just holds the tube in the Z shape. the increasing pressure in the tube forces the tube against itself thus covering the hole. The higher the pressure the better the seal.

 

So all you need is a couple of rubber bands in you bike kit, even a piece of string will do it.

 

Do a test on an old tube (if you have one)

tie the rubberband/string around tube ensuring the hole is in the centre of Z section. then pump up.

What? Shorto retire?? Geez that's a turn up for the books. When I spoke to him earlier this year he was planning on racing a lot of IM this year whilst working on his swim & cycling skills and then race sparingly next year but with some big hitouts planned for both Forster and Hawaii. I would love to see him win Forster and be on the podium in Hawaii before he retires... hopefully not for a few years yet.

Well that's right, he probably is thinking about retirement. But today he might get his Kona slot setting up a nice season where he doesn't have to worry about anything, except getting ready for Kona. Pressure off therefore.

I'll pass that on Bourne. But it got worse. Get there will 2 spare tubes so they can keep riding and - duh - no pump cos of CO2 cartridges, but only one and that was used wasn't it?

Oh well, brought Mitch home and as Wolfie can't ride till next weekend he can continue his ride - Mitch can ride during the week.

Jason Shortis has run into the lead of the dodo Ironman Western Australia triathlon at the 10km mark of the Asics marathon.

Jacobs is now 50 seconds behind Shortis and STILL has McKenzie attached to his shadow, two seconds in arrears.

 

love to see Mitch's mate Adam Conquest (just off the bike in sixth) hold it together on the run.

At 5.29 on the race clock NRMOZ reports that Shortis is in T2. At 6.19 he reports that Shortis is in the lead at the 14km mark (one lap) = 50minutes for 14km or a 2.30hr marathon split :lol:

Shortis is 'running' away with the Ironman here in Busselton now and has just charged through the 17.5km mark looking extremely fresh!

 

That's at 6:49 on the race clock.

 

At 6.19 he reports that Shortis is in the lead at the 14km mark (one lap) = 50minutes for 14km or a 2.30hr marathon split

 

Andrew1, tracking the race posts, there's some slight discrepancy in the splits, understandable, I think.

The competitors were greated by fine conditions and flat calm seas in contrast to the days leading up to the event the 6am start meant some very early morning breakfasts for many competitors. The first lap of the swim saw some confusion with competitors apparently swum to an incorrect bouy being re-routed to get back on course as predicted the fastest swim of the day belonged to Pete Jacobs in 45:25 shortly followed by Luke McKenzie in 45:29 Jason Shortis loomed 5mins in arrears at 50:25

The flat fast cycle course saw some very quick times being posted over the first 2 laps. However as the wind strength increased some of the early age group sprinters where brought back to the pack. Shortis showed his bike strength with a 4:40 bike split followed by Luke McKenzie (4:42) Pete Jacobs (4:43) Jason preseded to take control early in the run passing both Luke McKenzie & Pete Jacobs early and by the 24km mark was holding 6mins on Luke McKenzie in 2nd place and 9mins on Pete Jacobs who held down 3rd place.

Jason Shortis is currently heading for 8:15 race result.

 

In the womens race Rebekah Keat swam an inmpressive 50:48 to be beat Sophie Delemer out of the water by just 4seconds with a Fiona Docherty (sister of Beven Docherty NZ medalist at the Olypimcs) being 3rd. On the bike Rebekah Keat drew away from her competition to post a 5hr ride time in testing conditionds with Karyn Ballance riding herself into 2nd place via a 5:04 bike split Sophie Delamah hung onto 3rd with a 5:17 closely followed by Fiona Docherty. Keat proceded to street the field and by the 14km mark in the run held a 14min tima advantage ove Karyn Ballance with Sophie Delemer a further 3mins back. The age groupers appear to be setting some very fast bike splits despite some windy conditions later in the bike. By 1pm the cloud cover had burnt away and the the hot windy conditions greated the competitors at T2.

Littleaussiebloke can be heard in the background, revving the supporting crowd up. Sounds like it's a fun day for suipporters and exeptionally tiring with the winds for competitors.

 

As Gris said, you know it's tough when competitors are walkingh out of T2 to start the marathon run.

Andrew COLLEY M 30-34 1:01:12 5:04:19 6:05:31

 

Going back to the above. Yelloc 14 mins ahead of Jimmy C & Kanangra(Stephen Firth), with Matty at least 10min behind JC & Steve, therefore 24 mins down on Yelloc. All estimated splits.

Yelloc is having a blinder

 

Sure is. Also Steve Firth who could do a massive age group time, let's estimate 9:30 or better 45-49. Jimmy's cool too, but Steve might close a bit on Yelloc. Should be interesting.

Spaceman managed a 6:05 bike and is on target for a PB to dream for . He is doing it tough on the run but still happy.

 

Also Mr Flower has had a great swim and bike but his calf is gone on the run so not sure what will happen for him now.

 

Also word is that Jimmy C is dissappointed re the bike. 5>20 in super windy conditions and disappointed. hmm. He is going great in my books.

 

No word on anyone else yet.

Thanks Bernie,

 

Fast time, very few ladies in IM history sub 9:00, Paula NF did. Does anyone have that?

 

Blew, I talked to Blacky on course, they were optimistic, but Wimothy went way above even his own expectations....around 8:54. Blew where are you getting your stuff from?
