IRONMAN Mont Tremblant

  • That was a 5:45 minute stop for Sanders that watched his deficit to Rapp grow to +13:17. He also lost two positions on the course and is now riding in fifth. Do we seem him throw out his patience game he has been playing for much of the ride?
  • Ellis has settled into a pace that sees her lead holding steady to around +7:00 on Blatchford at 108 km's. Lyles is riding in third, +13:13 and Thibodeau in fourth, +15:37.
  • If you take Rapp out of the equation for a moment, second through fifth positions in the men's race are riding within five and a half minutes of each other.
  • Rapp's lead at 125 km's is now up to +7:55 on Ambrose, +7:58 Limkemann, +13:09 Sanders and +13:10 on Gleeson
  • Limkemann has motored past Ambrose and is now riding in second, +8:02, with Ambrose is third +8:08 and Sanders riding in fourth, +13:02.
  • Travis Peruski, athlète de la division "Open" en déficience physique, en selle après avoir complété la nage en 2h20. / Travis Peruski, athlete of the "Open" physically challenged division, taking the road after completing the swim portion in 2h20. #IMMT #Inspiration #SwimBikeRun

  • The gap between Ellis and Blatchford is now down to 6:22 at 114 km's. Is Ellis fading a bit, or is Blatchford upped her pace?
  • At 114 km's, Lyles is riding in third, but has slipped further back to over 14 minutes off the pace while Thibodeau still holds onto fourth at +16:15.
  • Ambrose has reclaimed second place after he passed Limkemann. Both are looking at a +8:20 - +8:24 deficits at 130 km's.
  • At 143 km's, Rapp's lead is 8:47 on Ambrose, +9:00 on Limkemann, while Sanders is going backwards and is now looking at a +14:16 deficit.
  • Ellis has inched her lead up to +6:50 on Blatchford as the lead pair bike through 130 km's.
  • Rapp's lead is over nine minutes now as he picks his way through the age groupers at about 150 km's into the bike.
  • If we look second through fourth in the men's (Ambrose, Limkemann and Sanders) there is only six minutes separating them at this juncture of the race, so this situation has all the makings of a good race once the run starts, and in particular with a running talent like Sanders being in the mix.
  • Ellis continues to grind away and has reestablished a lead of over a seven minute on Baltchford at 135 km's.
  • Rapp is showing no chips in his armor today so far as he rides through 155 km's with a +9:23 lead on Ambrose, 9:42 on Limkemann and 15:14 on Sanders.
  • Blatchford is loosing time with each passing km here in Quebec. She is now riding +7:25 back of Ellis, while Lyles and Thibodeau have both slipped to over 18 minutes off the pace at 139 km's.
