Questions about Kona for podcast

Zach MillerZach Miller Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
We are recording tonight and the show should be filled with Kona topics.

If you have any questions, post them below and we will answer them.

This show will not be focused on those 5-10 names near the top every year.

    Why won't my colleagues bring me back some decent Kona Coffee beans?

    Do most of the pros get financial help from their sponsors to go to Kona? Financial help with flights, lodging, etc.

    If the pros are going on their own dime, do the pros out of the top 10 ever see a financial benefit in going to kona. Future sponsorships etc. If not, why go? I could see going 3-4 times. I'd want to race in the world championships and test myself again the best in the sport, but if after 3-4 times if I'm coming in the late 20's mid 30's out of 50 pros, and I haven't had any glaring issues, (penalties, mech issues) is it really worth it to spend all the money to go to Kona?

    Because they don't exist.
    If Ironman ever moves the race to East Africa, though...

    We are taking more questions for Kona.

    1)
    Are there more backpfeifengesichts per square foot:
    a) on the Kona pier during race week, or
    b) in an artisanal speakeasy in Brooklyn before some loser posts about it on Yelp?

    2)
    What is the over under on penalties given to pros? Where would be the most damaging place for a pro to receive a penalty on the course (in terms of losing touch with the pack and having to bury themselves to catch up)? Can we put a marshal there?

    3)
    Michael Weiss will win the bike prime. Discuss.

    4)
    How many male pros will get Ryf'd?

    Who will get injured during the Underpants Run?
    If the weather cooperates, will we see a run-course record?
    Will Patrick Lange do a full change-over in T2 into a singlet and split shorts?
    What new bikes will debut?
    Who will be the first to descent from Hawi?

    Maybe if we say @BW_Tri 's name three times, he'll appear and talk some shit to @AJ Baucco about Challenge Aruba in just over 2 weeks.

    Beer has fallen out of favour as a rehydrator since John Collins and co. Will this year see an athlete succumb to the desire for a beer and brat' before the finish line?
