The men’s race in Kona has been shaken up due to some injuries, but that’s only made this year’s race even more wide open.

With Patrick Lange‘s impressive 2:40 marathon split, no one with the intentions of winning is going to want to come off the bike near him. This creates the potential for a lot of fireworks on the bike, not just from Lionel Sanders, Sebastian Kienle, and Cameron Wurf, but also from the main pack.

It’s going to be a dynamic race that should be exciting right to Ali’i Drive.

Good luck to everyone racing in Hawaii.
