  • Let us think about how fast this race has been right from the start: The average speed of Manuel Kueng and Andreas Dreitz for the first 15 k was 42.96 km/h...
  • Michael Raelert seems to be still on the course - but it looks not like he is racing. He has passed the timing at Km 15, already 26 minutes behind the leaders.
  • Update Men Km 45: Manuel Kueng is in the lead, 400 meters behind we have Andreas Dreitz. About 2 minutes behind Dreitz we have Antony Costes (FRA).
  • Daniela Ryf is making her way in the Tramuntana mountains. Her lead is about 2 minutes over Julia Gajer through Km 35. At about 3 minutes we have Yvonne van Vlerken. She fyling Dutchwoman has dropped Michelle Vesterby and Mette Moe Pettersen in the climb.
  • Morning impressions from Alcudia: The boys are ready.

  • The boys are entering the Bay of Alcudia

  • The boys are leaving the Bay of Alcudia, ready to enter T1.

  • In a top position after the swim, but not his day: Michael Raelert.

  • Waiting for another sensational Thomas Cook IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca: Some friends from all over the world.

  • We don't have a good internet connection in the Tramuntana mountains, but we have some strong protagonists racing hard: Manuel Kueng is still in the lead, Andreas Dreitz about 400 meters behind through Km 60.
  • Women's race: Daniela Ryf is consequently hitting the gas at the front. She is at Km 50. About 2 minutes behind we have Julia Gajer and a hammering Dutch behind her. Yvonne van Vlerken seems to make up ground on the strong German.
  • Manuel Kueng is making his way to one of the beautiest villages in Mallorca. Muro is ahead - and he looks great.
  • Flying Dutchwoman - that's a good call for Yvonne van Vlerken. She really hammered through the technical downhill section towards Caimari. Still in third, but eventually on the way.
  • Pro women on the way into T1.

  • Behind the first three men we have an interesting German duo: Johann Ackermann and Patrick Lange are making their way mor or less together on the bike.
  • Manuel Kueng has passed the 70-k-mark. Still about 400 meters ahead of Andreas Dreitz.
  • Through 60 km Yvonne van Vlerken has made up some more ground on Julia Gajer - she is 250 meters behind her. Still in the lead and looking stong and great: Daniela Ryf.
  • To all Mallorca fans: Next village is Sa Pobla. To all result fans: We will have the next timing there...
  • Andreas Dreitz said at the press conference that he fills ready to defend his title. At the moment it looks like it's on a good way for him. Manuel Kueng is a very strong athlete, but Dreitz seems to be the better runner.
  • Seems to be time for the great move for Andreas Dreitz. We hear that made an attack for the lead.
  • Andreas Dreitz is in the lead.
  • Yvonne van Vlerken is about 100 meters behind Julia Gajer in third place.
  • We had a wrong information - Andreas Dreitz has made his move way earlier in the race.
  • Andreas Dreitz' lead seems to be really huge.
  • 6 minutes lead for Andreas Dreitz - the timing mats tell the truth.
  • And Antony Costes brings a group of eight one minute behind Manuel Kueng through the timing point.
