Ironman 70.3 Timberman will get underway at 9pm AEST Sunday 21st August.
The lone Australian starter was Stephen Hackett but according to his Twitter he has missed his plane so is out of the race. This leaves 30-34 age grouper James Phillips from Adelaide as the sole Aussie in the race. No pressure James!
Kiwi’s Peter Clode and James Cotter are also racing. Hopefully 2011 gets better for James who has not achieved the goals that he was hoping for this year.
Chrissie Wellington will be almost impossible to beat. A mechanical issue will be the most likely thing to beat her on the day.
Rasmus Henning will also be racing. Henning has had ongoing cramping issues. Hopefully he has found out what is causing this and will race well later today.
