Carfrae 2011 EagleMan Finish
2011 Subaru Ironman 70.3 EagleMan Wrap Up
This year's event delivered a stellar field of professionals and loads of excitement. American, TJ Tollakson reclaimed his 2007 EagleMan title, and 2010 Ironman World Champion, Mirinda Carfrae of Australia reclaimed her 2009 EagleMan title. Tollakson finished nearly 4 minutes in front the the men after taking the lead early in the bike. Australian, Richie Cunningham finished in second place after a crushing run in which he passed 5 other pro men, and Stanislav Krylov of Russia came in 3rd. 

Second place among the women went to American, Tyler Stewart who had the fastest bike time.  Finishing 3rd among the women was the defending champion from 2010, Samantha Warriner of New Zealand.  Tenille Hoogland of Canada held the lead throughout much of the race, but halfway through the run she succumbed to Carfrae, and ultimately finished in 4th place.  All in all, nearly 40 International Professional Triathletes insured that the competition was fierce.

Congratulations to all our EagleMan competitors, award winners, and to those who snagged one on only 28 Ford Ironman World Championship slots or 50 Lake Las Vegas World Ironman 70.3 Championship slots.
