  • Andreas Raelert is in 11th place, directly behind Albert. He's pacing himself well and has maintained his gap to 10th place.
  • Some #IMFrankfurt fast facts: Last year's female winner was Corrine Abraham (8:52:40), Kienle is our defending champ with his 2014 7:55:14 (course record) and 4:12:14 bike split.
  • Bas Diederen in our first group is reportedly cramping. #IMFrankfurt
  • Bike leaders in the men's race: Frodeno leads, Kienle, Van Lierde, Boecherer and Butterfield all 2 min back #IMFrankfurt
  • Julia Gajer is riding in 2nd. She's generally a very steady rider. #IMFrankfurt
  • Ryf is riding at just over 200 watts average. #IMFrankfurt
  • Kienle has lost his bike nutrition and will likely be scrambling. #IMFrankfurt
  • Freddie Van Lierde just passed Kienle at 80 km, for 2nd and 3rd. #IMFrankfurt
  • Martijin Dekker leads a chase pack at 7:30 back. Raelert, Albert, and Lopez are very close behind him in positions 8 through 11. #IMFrankfurt
  • Frodeno is at Heartbreak Hill. #IMFrankfurt
  • Frodeno is opening up quite the gap over his chasers. He's now 3:00 ahead of Kienle and Boecherer in 2nd and 3rd, but the riders aren't even out on the 2nd loop yet. A lot can happen out there still!
  • Steffen's in the lead! #IMFrankfurt
  • Freddie Van Lierde powering away in third.

  • Fact Fact from #IMFrankfurt: Frodendo had 3 flats last year in his debut here at the IRONMAN distance. He's now onto his second lap of the course.
