Crushing victory of Diana Rieler in the Ironman of Lanzarote. Saleta Castro seventh

Saleta Castro in the 4 Participations in Lanzarote has always ended in the top 7 final.


For its part in the women's competition is the Austrian Michi Helbauer was the first to arrive at the T1 with a time of 53m21s, followed by a few 14 seconds of Saleta Castro and the Australian Kate Bevilaqua.

After them to 2 minutes the German Diana Riesler, further back to 5 'came the British Liveser and Finally another favorite, the Taiwanese Shiao-Yu Li it was close to 12 minutes with the first ones in the first transition.

In the first kilometers of cycling, Helbauer took the lead on his own, until at kilometer 30 he was hunted by Riana Riesler. Bevilaqua was behind, followed by Saleta and Livesey.

During the 30 kilometer until the 70 Helbauer holds the advantage around the minute with Riesler, but from the hardest zone since Famara the German begins its exhibition on two wheels, pedaling always very concentrated. Behind her behind Herbauler is losing minutes with respect to the leader and increases the advantage over the rest of the chasers. Behind several triathletes came doing good records as the Danish Jensen and the British Livesey, although weighed down by a bad swim.

Riana Riesler is planted in T2 after 5h37m of pedaling with the race practically in her pocket. After more than 18 minutes, the Austrian Herlbauer arrived in second position. Five minutes later, in third position came the British Livesey with a cyclist partial similar to the Austrian. In 5th place came Saleta who had found cycling very hard. Upon arrival at the finish line he told us that he had a bad choice in the profile of the wheels and that this penalized him a lot in the cycling segment.
