Iron man motion 3

Uploaded: June 19, 2006


Having changed after the swim there is a real urgency in the motion to get underway on the bike leg.
For many of the competitors the day was about just finishing. The race started at 7am and the course closed at 12mn. The winner crossed the finishing line in 8hrs 20mins. The oldest male to compete was 71 and he finished in just over 16hrs coming in 1431st. The oldest female was 60 and she finished 1386.
