Completing this session intelligently will see great improvements in your fitness. This session is great for triathletes, road cyclists, and mountain bikers.

Ironman Kona Predictions 2007 ……. yes, 2007

I’ve recently been tidying up around home and found some old magazines, which included both the November 2007 issues of Triathlete Magazine and Inside Triathlon (both of which are now owned by Outside Magazine group). With both these issues having the date November 2007, I assume they were published in October hitting the newsstands in October prior to Ironman actually happening. In both these issues they made predictions as to who would win and comments about how the race would/could unfold.
