A MESSAGE FROM GOVERNOR DAVID Y. IGE Aloha to the triathletes participating in the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai‘i. On behalf of the State of Hawai‘i, I welcome you to the most challenging single-day sporting event in the world. This year, over 2,500 elite athletes will swim 2.4 miles in Kailua Bay, bicycle 112 miles along the beautiful Kona-Kohala Coast, and run 26.2 miles to the finish line on Ali‘i Drive. Knowing that anything is possible, they will test their endurance and determination to succeed in this 140.6 mile journey on Hawai‘i Island. Mahalo to the sponsors and volunteers for organizing the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship. To the triathletes, I wish you a safe, exciting and memorable triathlon. Kūlia i ka Nu‘u—Strive to reach the highest! With warmest regards, David Y. Ige Governor, State of Hawai‘i

WELCOME ALOHA! ON BEHALF OF ALL OF US AT IRONMAN®, welcome to the 2019 Vega IRONMAN® World Championship. This pinnacle event is no doubt a milestone accomplishment for anyone who makes it to the starting line in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i and we are working hard to deliver a truly memorable event. As we celebrate all those who have an important part in making this race experience the best yet, we are proud to embrace our Hawaiian roots with this year’s theme of `Ohana – a specially bonded extended family. Our `ohana is encapsulated by a special set of virtues and traits – from responsibility, integrity, and purpose to righteousness, mindfulness, and sincerity. To demonstrate these values is to become part of the IRONMAN `Ohana and form a bond that will last forever. We encourage athletes, their `ohana, friends, supporters, volunteers and fans of the sport to embrace the beauty and strength of the Hawaiian culture and take advantage of all Kona has to offer. Enjoy the wonderful community of people, the aloha they share and our beautiful home. While enjoying race week, please be courteous towards volunteers, the local community, and officials who are working to provide a worldclass event not only for the athletes, but for the supporters and spectators as well. There is a Hawaiian proverb that rings particularly true in our `Ohana – ‘A’ohe lokomaika’i i nele i ke pānaʻi which means “No kind deed has ever lacked its reward.” The passion and pride of the 5,000+ incredible volunteers as well as the local communities gives this pinnacle event a feeling of unity and togetherness that cannot be matched by any other sporting event around the globe. I, along with the entire IRONMAN `Ohana, hope you walk away from this event with meaningful memories. Whether it’s your first or 41st experience, we look forward to seeing you on race day; a day where the world comes to Kona and dreams come true! Me Ke Aloha, Diana Bertsch IRONMAN Senior Vice President, World Championship Events Event Director, IRONMAN World Championship

IRONMAN began with a dream in Hawai`i in 1978. Since then Hawai`ian culture has been at the heart of the IRONMAN World Championship, and the spirit of Hawai`i has shaped the IRONMAN community around the world. As we approach the start line of the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship, we embrace this year’s theme `Ohana ~ Family In Hawai`i, `ohana is perhaps our greatest gift. It binds us and enriches us, bringing blessings and responsibility. The gifts of `ohana are obvious — family, friends and partners providing support,

encouragement and love; volunteers making the dreams of others come true; the community opening its home and welcoming people from around the world. `Ohana also obliges us to live and act with integrity and purpose. To share aloha despite our differences. To endeavor to be our best self, striving for excellence while believing, “Anything is Possible.” On October 12, 2019, in Kailua-Kona, Hawai`i we will come together as `ohana to celebrate the spirit of competition, our achievements, and blessings at the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship.

THE COURSE

IMPORTANT UPDATES AND INSIGHTS INTO THE ICONIC KONA COURSE.

Run

Swim

A new swim start protocol will be implemented for the 2019 Vega IRONMAN World Championship to reduce peak athlete density flowing onto the bike course. The creation of the Kukui Wave (for Legacy and Wild Card athletes) will further assist this goal, providing Kona Qualified athletes with swim waves devoted to age-group divisional competition. For the first time, a wave start will separate the field into 11 groups. The new start times will not change the existing cut off standards for the IRONMAN World Championship – 2:20 for the swim and 10:30 for the bike. Athletes will also still have to reach the finish line within 17 hours to be official finishers of the race. New start times: Time of Day

PRO SWIM TIPS FROM

LUCY CHARLESBARCLAY

“Use the straight lines on the course buoys to your advantage and sight from the Marriott hotel mast on the return leg, as it is a great marker. Try not to get distracted by the fish, and use the volunteers at the end of the swim as the waves want to push you past the exit point.”

Bike As cyclists make their way north along the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, from KailuaKona to the turnaround in Hawi, they can be exposed to intense trade winds that buffet much of the exposed western and northern coast of the Big Island. The winds vary in intensity from steady to heavy blasts that can blow cyclists across the road. For this reason, disc wheels are not permitted. Winds may subside during the gradual climb to Hawi but pick up again as athletes make their way to T2.

PRO BIKE TIPS FROM

CAM WURF

Take water at every aid station even when you don't think you'll need it. If you stay on top of your hydration you'll feel good for the entire ride. If you neglect it and start to suffer, it will be a long, long ride back to T2.

After an out and back trip through the crowds of Kona town and Ali’i Drive, runners head up Palani Road to the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway and the challenges that await on it. Their destination is the infamous Natural Energy Laboratory Hawai`i Authority (NELHA). After a return trip on the highway all that’s left is a victory lap through Kona town and the excitement of the finish line.

PRO RUN TIPS FROM

MIRINDA CARFRAE

Don’t get caught up in the excitement of the first few miles—the crowds are amazing and can have you so fired up, you will be running 10K pace down Ali'i Drive... don’t do that. 'Check yourself before you wreck yourself.’ And keep your core body temperature in control. Take your time to cool off through the aid stations.

nduction into the IRONMAN Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed by the sport. Since its inception in 1993, only 36 men and women have achieved that distinction, all representing the pinnacle of accomplishment, dedication and the spirit of `ohana (family). This year, as it has before, IRONMAN is inducting members from both sides of the aisle: those who compete, and those who make it possible for them to compete. “It is fitting that we honor these four individuals who have, after years and in some cases decades of effort, made tremendous contributions to our IRONMAN `ohana,” says Andrew Messick, President & Chief Executive Officer for The IRONMAN Group. “They’ve left an indelible mark on the world of triathlon and IRONMAN, and their induction into our Hall of Fame is our way of honoring what they have meant to our IRONMAN community.” Meet the Class of 2019.


I will never, ever do an IRONMAN!”

— 2006 World Champion Michellie Jones (in 1995)

IN 1995 MICHELLIE JONES was at the finish line of the IRONMAN World Championship, watching wide-eyed as a competitor was hauled away on a stretcher, feet bloody and body shaking. Michellie turned to Bob Babbitt. “You telling me this is the guy who won?” Bob confirmed that he had. It was Mark Allen, and this was his sixth world title. Michellie shook her head in disbelief, and then uttered the immortal line quoted above. She also told her triathlete twin sister that she should never do one, either. They both agreed to stick to the shorter forms of the sport. It didn’t last. Eleven years later I spotted Hall of Famer Paula Newby-Fraser in the finish area of the 2006 IRONMAN World Championship in Kona. She was sitting alone on the bleachers, biting her nails, looking like she was waiting to be indicted. When I asked what was going on, she pointed at the finish arch, without tearing her eyes from it, and said, “Waiting for Michellie.” Paula, who had coached Michellie for this race (which is like taking boxing lessons from Muhammed Ali) needn’t have worried. After finishing second just 2:30 behind Natascha Badmann in her first attempt the year before, the Wonder From Down Under took an early lead on the bike and never saw another female’s back for the rest of the day. Her finish line interviews were over before second place showed up. Most of the questions were some form of, “How does it feel to be the first woman from Australia to win the title?” It wasn’t exactly her first moment in the sun. Six years earlier she’d won a silver medal in the first Olympic triathlon, finishing a scant two seconds behind the winner. She’d also won IRONMAN Florida and Arizona. Her versatility and continual success at a variety of distances are legendary; she was the XTERRA world champion in 1996 and a two-time ITU world champion, the first coming only two years after she entered the

sport. In 2016 she went back to the Olympics to guide paratriathlete Katie Kelly to a gold medal, which she also did for two world titles they achieved together. Solo victories aside, Michellie considers the 2016 Rio Paralympic gold to be “the best thing that I’ve ever done.” Now head coach of the University of California San Diego triathlon team as well as an IRONMAN U certified coach, Michellie is one of the most popular ambassadors of the sport. “Michellie sightings” around the tri circuit outnumber those of Elvis around Las Vegas. She shows up to compete in all manner of races, famous and obscure, encouraging athletes at every skill level to just get out there and do it (as I, perennial last place finisher at the grueling sprint distance, can personally attest). Listed by Inside Triathlon magazine as one of the greatest women triathletes of all time, Michellie is also in the ITU Hall of Fame, and was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2017, a highly prestigious honor she shares with fellow IRONMAN Hall of Famer Ken Baggs.

JAN

war MANY OF TODAY’S IRONMAN world champions weren’t even alive when Jan War began volunteering for the event 38 years ago. A few years after moving from his childhood home in Oahu to the Big Island in 1975, he was asked to help set up matting on the ramp leading from the water to the pier. He did it well, and did a lot of other things well, and eight years later became the Swim Director, a position he’s held ever since. Jan was foundational in shaping the way volunteers have come to define IRONMAN racing nearly as much as the athletes do. During his tenure he created new coordinator positions to handle the increasing work load of managing volunteer logistics as the sport exploded in popularity. He also set up the kayak safety patrol and presided over changes in the location and configuration of the swim start and exit. Perhaps most visible to athletes, though, is Jan’s dry wit given full throat during his portion of the pre-race athlete

briefing. Such gatherings are not normally considered the high points of entertainment during any race, but Jan’s droll lectures have become a crowd favorite. Being the Swim Director is not the only Big Island responsibility for Jan. Athletes competing in the IRONMAN world championship have a lot of names for the Energy Lab, a particularly grueling 4-mile chunk of the run course, but none of them is printable here. Jan has called it home for the last forty years. You’d be hard put to find a time in his life when he was more than a beach width away from the ocean. He swam, surfed, dived and worked as a lifeguard in Waikiki. At Iolani High School on Oahu he captained both the swimming and water polo teams, and was an All American in 1969 and 1970. He was recruited by the University of New Mexico along with four other water polo players from Hawai`i and California. The school had been in last place in the Western Athletic Conference for years. When Jan and his buds got there as freshmen, UNM tied for first place and dominated after that, and were ranked in the top five nationally. When Jan grew up enough to get serious, he still did all of those things, but he also became Chief Operations Officer at NELHA, the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawai`i Authority. It’s a demanding, difficult job, but it also has its moments of total coolness: Jan has made ten dives half a mile down in the Lab’s 3-man submarine to deploy and inspect three seawater intake pipelines. “But I think about IRONMAN 24/7,” he says, mostly about how to improve safety and smooth the way for the athletes. Living and spreading the spirit of volunteerism earned Jan his place in the IRONMAN Hall of Fame.


Beginning with a single race in Hawai`i, The IRONMAN Group has grown to operate a global endurance sport portfolio with more than 230 triathlon, road and trail running, cycling and mountain biking events across 57 countries.

KENNETH

Gasque

IN 1983, CLUB LE SANTA was founded on a volcanic island off the northwest coast of Africa called Lanzarote. Often referred to as the “Island of Eternal Spring,” it was the ideal spot for a resort unique in the world, a complex devoted to the pursuit of athletics. At its founding, Kenneth Gasque was brought in as Sports Director to organize the many activities of the Club. It was an ideal situation for him, a perfect way to combine his love of sport, his head for business and his organizational talents. Among his creative accomplishments was setting up the Volcano Triathlon, the first international tri to be held on Spanish soil. It was an immediate hit and drew such luminaries as Dave Scott, Natascha Badmann, Luc van Lierde and Thomas Hellriegel.

44

2019 VEGA IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

There was no Internet, no cell phones, not even fax on the island at the time and terribly unreliable landline service. It was from foreign participants in the 1985 Volcano Tri that Kenneth first learned about IRONMAN, and he remembers the moment. “This is made for me!” he thought. “I need to do it!” The primitive communications prevented him from getting an entry form (qualifying was not yet an issue) but a few days later he saw someone wearing a finisher’s shirt and struck up a conversation. By extraordinary luck, the guy had an extra form and gave it to Kenneth. Later that year, Kenneth became the first Dane ever to compete in the IRONMAN World Championship. It was in Kona that the similarity between Hawai’i and Lanzarote first struck him, and two more world champion finishes sealed the deal. He’d do a fourth in 2005, but long before that he’d created “Club Le Santa IRONMAN Lanzarote,” which stands as the second oldest IRONMAN event in the Europe/Middle East/Asia region. And, to hear Kenneth tell it, the toughest in the world. And the most beautiful. And…etc., etc. From what we hear, he might be right, especially about the “toughest” part, owing to a series of steep ascents and scary descents on the bike, and the “beautiful” part because, well, it is. The race started off in 1992 with only 156 entrants and the exotic venue has since grown into one of the top 10, drawing over 1800 athletes in 2019. Kenneth was particularly struck by the courage and tenacity of disabled athletes, and encouraged them to come to Lanzarote to compete. Their visibility, which included Randy “The Animal” Caddell in 1995, led to the establishment of a still-active charity on the island that motivates disabled kids through sports. Kenneth may be the longest-serving race director in the sport. From the beginning, he put his private trademark on his stewardship, most notably by greeting and shaking hands with every single finisher, whether they make the midnight cutoff or not. “This is not a job, this is a joy,” he says. “This is where I breathe, where I live. I dream and I hope the athletes get the same feeling crossing the finish line.”

TIM

deboom THE YEAR WAS 2001; the day was October 6, just five weeks after 9/11. America had barely begun to emerge from the sorrow and confusion wreaked by evil from a shadowy bog. No one in any sphere of endeavor was entirely certain of how to behave, or how to proceed, or what was proper in these unprecedented circumstances. But by the first week in October it was starting to become clear that Americans were dusting themselves off and getting down to the business of showing the world – and themselves – that there was no force on earth that could tamp down our spirit for very long. Which is why, in the middle of the afternoon of October 6, nobody who wasn’t pressed up right against the barrier fencing on Ali’i Drive could tell who was powering down the finish chute. That was because the crowd, normally given to cheering for the imminent winner by name, was just shouting “USA! USA!” at the top of its collective lungs.

46

2019 VEGA IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

The man drawing energy from the chanting was Tim “The Boom,” and in another few seconds he would become the first American male since Mark Allen six years prior to take the IRONMAN world title. And, as if to prove it was no fluke fueled by patriotic fervor, the following year he also became the last American to win it, and at the time only the third male ever to rack up back-to-back victories. To do it, he had to run away from a pack that included perennial top three finisher Cameron Brown and former champ Peter Reid. “The quiet man with the loud name,” as Allen called him, came from some good genes. Older brother Tony was also an IRONMAN winner, who lost IRONMAN California to his kid brother in May of 2001. The kid also won IRONMAN New Zealand in 1999, besting hometown hero Cameron Brown. Those feats, and many others, make Tim one of history’s most accomplished American triathletes, and a worthy inductee into the IRONMAN Hall of Fame.

KONA’S UNSUNG CYCLING SAFETY HERO:

Franz Weber

BY J E N N I F E R WA R D 48

2019 VEGA IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP


WHEN WE THINK OF IRONMAN VOLUNTEERS, we often think of the people getting Gatorade Endurance splashed on them at aid stations or catching sweaty bodies at the finish line. But there are behind-the-scenes volunteers, too, managing elements far less dramatic. I met one such person—one of IRONMAN’s longest-time volunteers—a few years ago when searching for a particular computer cable I needed for race day. Rather than shipping me off to the nearest Staples, I was promptly introduced to Franz Weber—a lean, fit man sporting a grey ponytail. Weber took me into something resembling a secret cave of technology cast-offs in the back of a conference room in the King Kam. I left with the cable I needed, plus enough random office equipment to start my own media company. A lot of moving pieces come together to make the IRONMAN World Championship happen, and Weber knows where to find all of them. This year will mark his sixth season as the director of Volunteers and Information—a role that is as broad and multi-faceted as it sounds. “Franz is never in one place race week,” says Diana Bertsch, Senior Vice Presdient, World Championship Events for IRONMAN. “He typically is seen moving quickly throughout the venue managing his team and supporting athletes, volunteers, and the operations team.” Weber, who moved to Kona from Germany in 1992, has volunteered for IRONMAN for 27 years in addition to numerous other community projects in his adopted home. “I believe Franz wakes up every morning and asks himself how can I make the world a better place today. His love of life and random acts of kindness set an example of how we should behave in the world,” Bertsch says. Kona resident Tina Clothier, Executive Director of People’s Advocacy for Trails Hawai`i (PATH), sees yet another element of Weber’s character through their mutual involvement in the organization. Clothier recruited him years ago as a cycling instructor, and says she hasn’t looked back since. Through PATH, Weber gets to practice his love for cycling by teaching basic bike skills to locals. “Franz is very calm and to the point—he’s not at all intimidating,” Clothier says. “His teaching style is very encouraging.”

Weber’s role with PATH goes beyond teaching. He also does key advocacy and safety education work, working with commercial drivers and trucking companies who are required to take regular safety classes. PATH conducts a session for drivers on how to share the road with cyclists—what to expect, and why they act the way they do moving from shoulder to lane, and avoiding debris. In addition, anytime PATH does any kind of legislative activity with the state or county, such as their current project pushing for a three-feet passing law, Weber helps lead the effort. “He’s so integral to everything we do,” adds Clothier. “I have such respect for the way he helps to make our community a better place to live. He moves our organization to a higher bar with his involvement.” Clothier names compassion as another one of Weber’s key character traits, recounting a story of a pedestrian who was hit by a cyclist while he was walking to work. Weber organized a very low key, quiet fundraiser for him so that he could get his car safety checked and be able to drive to work once more. Though his day job sees him handling product transportation logistics for United Natural Foods, no matter who you talk to on the island, Weber is known throughout the community for much more. His commitment to the community, selflessness, and patience are shown in the work he does outside the nine to five, where his broader calling and passions become crystal clear. But it’s not simply the emotional high of volunteering and seeing the world’s fittest athletes come to town. “What drives me more is all the good IRONMAN (and the IRONMAN Foundation) does directly for our local community, as well as for the local economy,” Weber says. “From the ‘We have your Back(pack)’ program, Bike for Kids, the vans for Hospice of Kona and for PATH, the dozens of donations to non-profits, or the money that is being pumped into the local economy each year, I don’t want to know, where we would be without IRONMAN. The term `Ohana really describes best how we all work together, how we support each other, how the group and the common goals supersede any personal agenda, how we can trust and rely on each other at all times.”

Swim Bike Run • 2018 & 2019 IRONMAN World Championship – 2nd • 2019 IRONMAN African Champion

If anyone doubted that Ryf is this generation’s Queen of Kona, she solidified her untouchable status with last year’s remarkable performance. Barely able to swim after she was stung by a jellyfish on course, Ryf showed us what a transcendent champion she is. She shrugged off a ten minute swim deficit and went to work on the bike and run, proceeding to win in a course record time of 8:26:18. There is little reason to doubt Ryf in her bid for a tenth world title (she’s a four-time IRONMAN World Champion and a five-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion)—as evidenced by her performance last month in Nice, she’s in top form across the swim, bike and run. The cruel reality for her competitors is that the biggest competition for Ryf is the island and the history books as she simply has no weaknesses and seemingly no equal.

2019 VEGA IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Last year’s runner-up to Ryf, CharlesBarclay first came on the scene as a swim specialist with an Olympic pedigree but in her short pro career she’s been able to improve in all disciplines. If much of the triathlon world believes Ryf is unbeatable, Charles-Barclay pays little heed. She continues to push herself to improve her weaknesses, and she uses a dominant swim for a launching pad to go off the front alone and put the pressure on Ryf. She has posted two sub-3-hour marathons so far this year, and if she adds that to the powerful swim/bike combo we’ve seen from her the last few years, she may just make it a running race late in the marathon.

ANNE HAUG Age: 36 Country: Germany

Swim Bike Run • 2018 IRONMAN World Championship – 3rd • 2019 IRONMAN Copenhagen – Champion

True is a recent convert to the IRONMAN distance and has had a quick ascendance to the top. In her first year at Kona last year she fought hard in a podium battle with Anne Haug and ended up just missing out. If she’s fully recovered from her late qualifying race in Mont-Tremblant expect True to push herself and her competitors to the absolute limit to keep her off the podium. With her front-pack swim and sub3 hour-marathon abilities, she will just need to limit her losses to the lead cyclists to give her that chance for a top finish.

The pure runner of the field, Haug unleased her strength last year to run her way into third place with a race-best 2:55 marathon in her first Kona attempt. She’s coming off of a dominant win at IRONMAN Copenhagen, where she not only showed that her sub-3hour run form is intact, but that she can also ride in the 4:30s after a front-pack swim. Admitting that she feared the Kona course last year, Haug showed respect and restraint for both her competitors and the island. After one of the best debuts, we expect to see her being a little more aggressive early in the race now that she has the confidence and experience under her belt. One of the only athletes with the skillset to challenge the two finishers in front of her last year, she’ll still need to lean on her run strength, but she’s proven she is capable of something special in the final leg.

Third place in 2017 and sixth place last year, Crowley will be looking to get back on the podium this year. Known as one of the toughest athletes on the circuit, she will be hoping for challenging conditions to show off that strength. She is very well balanced over the three disciplines, but if it’s a hot, humid and windy day, her bike and run will shine. She’s capable of a 3-hour marathon off of a hard ride, and she’ll be hoping her run legs show up where they did not last year. If there is one athlete none of these women want to be fighting for a podium position late in the marathon, it is Sarah Crowley. They don’t come much mentally tougher.

MIRINDA CARFRAE Age: 38 Country: Australia

Swim Bike Run • 3X IRONMAN World Champion (2010, 2013, 2014) • 2018 IRONMAN World Championship – 5th Place

A true legend with more experience than any other contender in the lava fields of Kona, “Rinny” has shown that she’s back to her top form after giving birth to her daughter in 2017. Overlooking Carfrae for a podium, or possibly even the win, would be a huge mistake considering her three victories, three second places, and third place at the World Championship. She is a solid chase pack swimmer and a strong cyclist, but she really depends on a lethal marathon split to put fear in her competitors. How fast is her run? Carfrae has broken the run course record five times (her fastest is 2:50:26). She has shown her topend speed this season with two wins and two second place places in the IRONMAN 70.3 distance. If Carfrae is within ten minutes of the front of the race at the start of the marathon, and she is “on a day,” her competitors will be running scared, and she’ll be poetry in motion.

But “HJ” has since shown that this was just a blip by winning three IRONMAN 70.3’s and two IRONMAN races, including an American record-setting 8:39:18 at IRONMAN Arizona. Jackson often loses time in the swim, but she has the bike strength to make up that time, and she’s capable of a 3-hour marathon.

McCauley is one of the few women on the start line that has multiple sub-3-hour marathons under her belt, and she can hang with the strongest swimmers and cyclists on a tough course.

After watching Frodeno run a 1:06 half marathon en route to the win at the 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, the men’s Kona field that year had ample reason to be very worried. Their fears were short-lived, however, as just a week later he announced he was out of the race in Kona with a stress fracture in his hip. When Frodeno is on, it appears nearly impossible to beat his triple threat strength of a breakaway swim, an equally dominant bike, and low 2:40 run. With an absence from the race last year—and a field that will encourage an aggressive game plan—look for him to make his statement early on in the race.

2019 VEGA IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Considering that Lange was brand new to the sport in 2016, his ascendance into the Kona history books is nothing short of remarkable. His ability to run sub2:40, even on the hottest days, has put the pressure on his competitors to push their limits on the bike for a necessary cushion on the fleetfooted German. The big problem for his rivals, though, is that he’s raised his cycling game to keep his deficit to his strongest competitors to around five minutes coming into T2. If anyone wants to beat the defending champ, they’re going to need at least a 10-minute lead coming off the bike AND a fantastic run to do it.

With consecutive third place finishes in Kona the past two years, it’s unwise to ignore McNamee as a race favorite. One of the Scot’s biggest strengths is his ability to run fast on this exposed and hot course seemingly unhindered by the brutal elements. When asked last year about the heat, he said he only felt it the last 10K of the run. If you’ve ever felt the oppressive Kona heat, you know what an ace card this is. If McNamee can use his frontpack swim to position himself with the fast groups on the bike, limiting his losses onto the run course, there are few that can keep him from victory.

Not satisfied with a reductive “uber biker” reputation, Wurf has worked tirelessly on his weaknesses and has made vast improvements in the swim and, just a few weeks ago, ran a 2:45 marathon on his way to the win at IRONMAN Italy. He’s the first to admit the conditions last year in Kona were perfect for a bike course record, and you can bet he’s crossing his fingers that Madam Pele will bring the big winds this year to help him get what he really wants—the IRONMAN world title.

One of the most consistently strong cyclist-runners in the Kona field, Aeronauts used the lethal combo to finish second to Lange last year (they were the only two to break the 8-hour mark). If he wants to be a contender for the title, he’ll need to keep his swim gap to the front of the race in the 3-4 minute range and find some bike allies in the form of Cameron Wurf, Sebastian Keinle or Joe Skipper. Aeronauts has been incredibly consistent this year, most recently finishing sixth at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship with a 1:09 run split. With the way things are lining up for him, don’t be surprised if the Belgian is fighting for the win late in the run.

O’Donnell was top American finisher last year and has now finished third, fourth, fifth and sixth, making him one of the most consistent on the sport’s biggest stage. He typically delivers an extremely balanced race with a front-pack swim, front group or breakaway bike leg, and a consistently low 2:50 run split that allows him to stay near the front as others fade in the harsh conditions. If O’Donnell wants to improve upon his already impressive Kona resume, he will need a sub 2:50 run split. He has shown that he can run in the mid 2:40s, just not yet in Kona. Will this be his year?

ALISTAIR BROWNLEE Most athletes would be content knowing their body of work landed them on the top of nearly every GOAT (greatest of all time) conversation, but that just isn’t Alistair Brownlee’s style. After a dominating career in ITU racing, including two Olympic gold medals, a handful of Olympic distance World Championship titles, and countless victories, he’s now focused on IRONMAN racing, and there’s no reason to think he can’t bring his golden touch to Kona. With a win at his first ever IRONMAN in Cork, Ireland, and an impressive second at the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Nice just a few weeks ago, it’s clear his form is building for his Kona debut. Brownlee has breakaway speed on the swim that could find set him up for an aggressive race from the front. If he comes off the bike near the front it’s going to be a monumental task outrunning this decorated Olympian.

LIONEL SANDERS

MEN’S RACE

Age: 31 Country: Canada

Swim Bike Run • 2019 IRONMAN Mont Tremblant – 2nd • 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 Indian Wells La Quinta Champion • 2018 IRONMAN Mont Tremblant - 2nd • 2017 IRONMAN World Championship - 2nd

Sanders is one of the most feared athletes by his peers. If you look at his results in Kona as a whole, you might wonder why that is, as he’s finished 28th, 29th, 14th, and was 2nd two years ago. That may seem like inconsistency, but what this shows is a go-forbroke mentality. Lionel is a powerhouse on the bike and has developed into an incredible runner, with a handful of sub-2:45 marathons under his belt. While his swim has historically been a liability in Kona, he’s been hyper focused on his weakness, so don’t expect him to be too far off of the main group. His biggest strength, though? Toughness. This man will push his body’s limits harder than anyone. If he sniffs the lead, he’ll dig deep and challenge his competitors to be the first to crack.
