Simon Thompson won it in 2008 so should be in the top 3, especially if his build up has been good. It will be great to see Macca and Alexander race head to head over this distance. Macca would probably have won Kona last year if it wasn't for his dud bike.

Interesting to see Andrea Hewitt starting also. Haven't seen her starting in any other non-drafting races but always expected to see it; she is strong on the bike but a hilly course may suit her better. Expect to see her top 3 but again there will be some new challenges for her in this race. If she picks the right 70.3 courses she will win for sure.

The other highlighted athletes are the ones I will be watching to place highly.
