by Quintana Roo Triathlon May 16, 2022

Historic is an understatement.

On May 7th, athletes battled heat, hills, winds, and the world’s triathletes at the 2021 World Championships in St. George, Utah. Quintana Roo triathletes were in the thick of it. It was the first Ironman World Championships to take place off the island of Hawaii, yet it was as iconic as any on the island, bringing together the world’s best triathletes on an epic course beset on all sides by beautiful red rock mesas and cliffs. The course was highlighted by stunning Snow Canyon on the bike and Red Rock Parkway along the run. It wouldn’t be a world championship-caliber event if it wasn’t incredibly beautiful—and incredible tough.

Ironman World Championship

Quintana Roo was the sixth most popular bike brand among athletes competing...

As with all our centerpiece events, Quintana Roo athletes were able to take advantage of pro-level pre-race bike service, making sure QR bikes were shifting to perfection for their big day in the high desert southwest… and then some. Case in point: our QR service team encountered a QR athlete whose bike was damaged by the airlines upon landing on site. We were able to sort her out with a replacement loaner of her PRfive2, matching up her fit… and saving her race.

During bike check-in the day before the race, a team of industry experts—including a crew from our own Quintana Roo squad—were out helping with the annual Ironman World Championships Bike Count. Quintana Roo was the sixth most popular bike brand among athletes competing, and closing on many brands, proving our engineering and attention to detail towards and care for our athletes—age group and pro alike—is moving Quintana Roo to the top of the list for many triathletes.

Race Results

Among our pros, Haley Chura proved the new HYDROsix2 wetsuit as world’s fastest (while proving yet again that she’s one of the sport’s fastest swimmers), charging out of Sand Hollow Reservoir first among pro women in first place in 50:39. Our pro female trio raced strong all day, with Kelly Fillnow taking 15th, Angela Naeth 18th and Chura 19th on the day.

Among the pro men, Matt Hanson’s balanced attack netted him a 13th place finish, while World Championships rookie Justin Metzler got his first Ironman World Championships finishing badge, taking 24th, wetting his beak for another shot at it in the future.

And we saw it all day out on the course: age groupers making their dreams come true. To all those who dared to start, we hearken to Ironman’s Hawaiian motto for this most unique World Championships, Kumukahi: a new beginning. You were all part of history… so congratulations!
