There has been a lot of buzz about the Longhorn 70.3. Tim Deboom, Bjorn Andersen, Simon Lessing, and others will be toeing the line for a no doubt brutal course. Bjorn is supposed to come by and do our saturday ride, so if you are in town for the race come by and say hi.
It will be interesting to see if it is wetsuit legal or not, I doubt it will be. We have had a fair number of people coming looking for swim skins hoping to knock off a few minutes from the swim time. The bike course this year is "easier" than previous years but still going to be a beotch. The new Giro Advantage is now out, so thats another couple of minutes. The comes the hot, no shade run...this where the race will likely be won. Speed laces...20 seconds. So far in my virtual racing I have shaved off 6 minutes 20 seconds and won the race.
I wont be able to go watch because I am flying out to Kona that morning...oh well. The Kona blog is coming up...so stay tuned.
