Neubauer finished the swim in 1:15, the bike ride in 6:08, and the marathon in 4:22 for an overall time of 11:55.59.
Nearly 2,000 athletes competed at the event.
To prepare for the Madison Ironman, Weslaski competed at the Stevens Point Duathlon in July, where he was overall winner and at the Grand View Firehouse 50 bike race, and at the Waupaca Triathlon, where he placed fourth overall.
Neubauer participated in the American Triple-T in Salt Fork State Park, Ohio, which consists of a sprint triathlon on the first day, two Olympic triathlons on the second day, and a half ironman the third day.
