1st Review of the NEW Ironman Lanzarote Bike course.

The NEW IM Lanzarote course has finally been revealed in the last 24 hours and we love it!

While the course has been a well-kept secret, our sources were able to reveal the course to us in March and we took the opportunity to ride the course, recently.

The are lots of questions to be asked and to be answered and here’s our take on the new course.

It’s a great IM course, arguably better than previous courses. While there is a similar amount of elevation, the course lends itself better to a higher number of participants making the time cuts.

The first main difference is where the course went from the El Toro roundabout to Uga via Puerto Calero. It now goes up behind the El Toro restaurant towards Tias, through Conil and onto the LZ 30, turning left to go down through La Geria to Uga (Camel Roundabout).
The course rejoins the old course for a lap of El Golfo and proceeds up through Timanfaya and the National Park to Mancha Blanca. This is where the new course changes again.

The loop that takes in Tiagua, back to Tinajo, down to La Santa, Soo and Famara has been completely omitted.
Turn right in Mancha Blanca to ride the “planet of the apes” road LZ-56 all the way to the LZ-30. Turn left onto the LZ-30 going all the way to Teguise, back on the old course again and all the way to Mirador del Rio.

The course continues back through Mala and Guatiza to the next (most welcome) change. Tahiche and the horrible Nazaret LZ-408 have been omitted. Instead, you turn right onto the LZ-404 for Teseguite and Teguise.

As you leave Teguise on the LZ-30, you will turn for Famara on the LZ-402. Here the route designers have added what we think is the “pièce de résistance”!

The new “down and back” to Famara on the LZ-402 is a fabulous addition, Las Laderas to be precise. Riders will have almost 140km in the legs. On paper, it’s a nice downhill to Famara, in reality, and assuming the wind blows North Easterly, this is going to snap a lot of legs. The draggy climb back up is only slightly softened by the very fact you will most lightly have a tailwind. The fact that any participants within 25-30 minutes of each other are likely to see each other on this section spices things up a little more.

Get back up to the roundabout and travel back down the LZ-30 to where the beginning of the course came out from the LZ-501 to the El Toro roundabout via Conil and the “donkey track”.

The highlights, without doubt, are the new additions. The route from El Toro to the LZ-30 via the “donkey track” and Conil is a climbers paradise. 295m altitude in Conil and only just over 15km in to the course. A few over-eager riders are going to blow up here. Also, the “down and back” to Famara. This will make or break riders, mental strength will play a big part for the athletes!

Overall, it’s a better-designed route and still as testing as the old course. Visually it’s even more amazing and the road surface is much better than before.

Do we expect a course record? Well, it’s a new course so there will be a record  but we expect the time to be marginally quicker on the new course.

“If he’s not on a day off, he’s on his bike”…..that’s Mick for you.

We know he is really looking forward to it, but we’re fairly sure his “oil light will be flashing” at some point during the 1,100km race. There is 7,500 metres of climbing thrown in for good measure…..so, it will be a sufferfest of sorts by any stretch of the imagination.

Can we also take this opportunity to extend a massive thank you to everybody who has extended their best wishes.

To keep up to date with his progress, here is the tracker, Mick is No.19 on the start list.
