On Sunday April 13, 2014 Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico took place in the historic city of San Juan.
The big question going into the race was just how big a lead Andrew Starykowicz would have when the dust settled after the 56-mile bike?
Starykowicz holds the bike course record for pretty much any Ironman race he has ever entered.
True to form, Starykowicz was near the front of the pack after the swim and by the time the bike was over held a lead of over five minutes as the run began.
All that remained to be seen was if Andi Boecherer or Will Clarke who were in second and third place would be able to catch him before he crossed the finish line.
There would be nobody catching Starykowicz on this day and he went on to win the race by one minute over Will Clarke.
Andi Boecherer finished in third spot.
The field for the pro women was very small and the race was dominated by Helle Frederiksen of Denmark.
She took the lead early on in the bike and went on to win the race by twelve minutes over second place Sofie Goos of Belgium.
The pros raced for prize money and Kona Ranking Points and there were 40 Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifying spots up for grabs for the top age-group finishers.
