  • Fast transition for Daniela Ryf - she heads onto the bike course with a lead of 1:05.
  • The first 20 men started on the bike course in less than 2 minutes. Will be going wild on the first kilometers.
  • 50 km/h - not a bad speed for a Mallorca sightseeing tour on a bike. The field is on a fast way.
  • We have heard, that 2012 champion Michael Raelert seems to be out of the race. We wait for information on that.
  • Manuel Kueng is in the lead - as he has been at IRONMAN Mallorca 2014.
  • Top 15 is still very close in the men's race.
  • Top 15 Men Bike Km 15.5:

  • We have no timing of Michael Raelert at Km 15. We try to find out the reason and what has happend to one of the clear favorites. The only thing we have heard is that he seems to be out of the race.
  • The stunning bike course - but as well a hard one.

  • Manuel Kueng and Andreas Dreitz are making their way in the climb. Kueng is in the lead, Dreitz about 400 meters behind.
  • Daniela Ryf stretched her lead on the first kilometers. Through Km 15 she is 1:21 ahead of Julia Gajer. Then we have a storming trio: Yvonne van Vlerken, Michelle Vesterby and Mette Moe Pettersen (+2:41).
