With no October Kona this looks like the ‘A’ race to end the season for most. Originally this looked too close to Kona for any realistic doubling up, but not any more.
Iden will whisper his way to T2 then run down whoever’s in front the the W. Suspect Blu will try to latch onto Iden, hoping to do the same.
Can’t see anyone doing enough damage on the bike to challenge that, there’s no Jan and a few Uber bikers missing such as limping Lionel, Sebi. Long will be too far back. Ditlev can’t run quick enough.
The runners like Hanson, Goodwin, Baekergard (?) will get shelled on the Snow Canyon climb.
Way more intrigued and up for this, fascinating race and pretty much all the big dogs there outside Duffy. Ryf looked great last time out, LCB has shown real run speed thus year and will bust the race up on the swim. Knibb could do anything.
Let’s hope Salthouse and Holly end up swimming together, seeing as Tyson Fury and Joshua didn’t get to fight….
Can’t call it, but really hope LCB gets her first WC win. I hope the coverage of the women’s race isn’t lost now it’s a 1 day event.
I really like the sound of the course, would love to race either the IM or next year’s WC here.
70.3 is probably the most entertaining and fascinating distance so definitely worth carving a few hours out to watch on Sat pm…
