I am very excited to race and hope to have a top finish against this very competitive field. I have recovered from my win in UK and can’t wait to get back out there and battle with the boys.

MBE will be using this race as a tune-up for the World Championships. She has qualified for Kona so the points aren’t an issue but she is hoping to defend her Norht American Championship. She reported in 

I am looking forward to trying to defend my title from last year. The course looks amazing and I can’t wait to have a great challenging race. The Doc has told me to use this race as my sharpening stone so that I am hardened up and ready for battle in Kona! Every Ironman is tough so I expect this one will be no different and I will be out there giving it my all.
