  • The sign says it all

  • Good morning from the Oschner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans.

    Due to the high winds on Lake Pontchartrain, the swim portion of the race has been canceled. The race will now be a bike-run race. We will have more details for you shortly.
  • Race is starting in a few minutes here. The Pro's will leave on 30 second intervals.
  • The pro race has started here in New Orleans. Terenzo Bozzone, 2010 Ironman 70.3 New Orleans champion, started first and will be the early rabbit for the remainder of the field.
  • The bike-run format should change the dynamics of this race. To what degree, we will just have to wait. On the Women’s side, someone like Julie Dibens will be giving back some huge time to the not as strong swimmers. The likes of Heather Jackson and Yvonne van Vlerken were five to six minutes in arrears to the swim leader last year in New Orleans.
  • Bike Course

  • At mile 7 of the bike, it looks like Julie Dibens and Heather Jackson are making up their deficits due to the TT start, and are now about to overtake Sam Warriner, who was the first women sent off this morning.
  • We will have not have any official times until the end of the 56-mile bike portion of the race.
  • Late in the bike, Terenzo Bozzone is leading the men’s field. Bozzone started first this morning and has held off all challengers who started behind him up until this point.
