Kona Predictions!

New here, so I thought I'd kick off a thread to see what everyone's pick for Kona was.

For the Men's, I think it's hard to see past Crowie. Though I think Macca and Keinle will give him a run for his money. (Anyone but Jacobs, I think the island of Hawaii would sink under the weight of his ego if he took it out! :roll: )

Womens: Xena has been killing all season, is a beast on the bike and will be hard to beat. But Joycie and Rinny are very solid also. Love to see Bek Keat place top 5.

Thoughts anyone?


  • Hi Kookette
    Would love to see Rachel Joyce up there, 6th, 5th and 4th at Kona in the last three years and a win at Challenge Roth this year. Brett Sutton has Steffen and Mary Beth Ellis on the startline, though.

    As for the chaps, a long-awaited European win at Kona for either Raelert or Vanhoenacker? Aside from Tom Lowe, think I'll be rooting for Macca; his book is brilliant and his post-race speech would be amazing!

    Think you can watch it live at universalsports.com next weekend.

    Would love to see Crowie win it again,

    History suggests that alot of winners previously placed the year before winning it, so youd have to give Jacobs or Raelert a massive chance.

    Jacobs has youth on his side too with a nice few visits under his belt, plus a fast time ,LTO

    Not that I know of...

    You stream it live online from the Ironman Website - I do that and just connect my laptop to the TV.
  • Raelert all the way.
