Tyler Butterfield 1st in Cozumel Ironman 70.3

You might have been forgiven for thinking that perhaps Tyler Butterfield had either retired or cut back from his Ironman racing, in particular since he will not be appearing in Kona this year for the Ironman World Championships after a number of years on the starting line.

However, Tyler showed this past weekend that he is still very much in the picture when it comes to the best long distance triathletes in the world by finishing first at the Ironman 70.3 Cozumel 2019.

It may not have been the strongest field  assembled with many triathletes already in Kona preparing, but in tough conditions Tyler produced a very strong performance with impressive splits for someone who has had to split his time between a growing family, work on the family horse boarding facilities and training.

Tyler came out of the water within seconds of the leaders in 25:05 and then blitzed the bike in  2:07:19 at an average speed of 42.42km/hr and then put in a solid run of 1:14:45 for an overall time of 3hr 50 mins 22 secs
