Tyler Butterfield was 5th today at the Mont Tremblant Ironman 70.3 in Quebec Canada.

Tyler had a strong swim, usually his weakest discipline, to exit with the leaders and after a strong bike was in contention for a podium going into the run. Pre race favorite Lionel Sanders, who was 4th at the 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championships and comes from a strong running background, posted the fastest run split to take the win whilst Tyler was just pipped for 4th by the fast finishing Richie Cunningham.
