Ironman Lanzarote–Tips From The Experts

We asked several pro and age grouper athletes, who have all raced Ironman Lanzarote, to share their tips for the race with readers:

Bella Bayliss – 16 times Ironman Champion and winner in Lanzarote twice

Bella Bayliss Ironman Lanzarote 2009

“Get as many miles as you can in during your training so you are as fit as you can be in swim, bike and run. While training use the equipment you will use on race day, same wheels, same helmet, same running shoes, then you will be the most comfortable you can be during the day.  Enjoy the challenge!” Read more »

Bayliss Back On The Podium At Ironman Los Cabos

After a winter lay off, Stephen Bayliss returned to long distance racing at Ironman Los Cabos with an impressive 2nd place finish on Saturday.

Bayliss Lanzarote Music Marathon

The four times Ironman champion has meticulously planned 2014 in a bid to qualify for The Kona World Championships, and is hoping to achieve the highest ever finish by a British male there.

Bayliss completed the Los Cabos course in 8:32:19, sandwiched between two Italian athletes, 5 minutes down on winner Daniel Fontana and 2 minutes ahead of Domenico Passuello.

He finished the swim split in first place in an impressive 45:37. Saving some energy for his run, he stayed in touch with most of the leading group on the bike, and delivered his best bike performance for three years. The run started smoothly enough, although keeping pace with Fontana proved impossible – he finished with a marathon time of 2:55:06. Bayliss maintained second place until he suffered from sickness halfway through the run, and was passed by Passuello. Once he’d dealt with the issues, and taken some more energy on board, he had an excellent last lap and re-took 2nd place to get his 2014 campaign off to a great start. Read more »
