I have set up AP and GSP as favourites on Ironfan, does that mean I'll be able to see where they are on the course at any time? (I don't know IronPo or Niseko's name?)

McKenzie again has missed the swim group, out with Kienle almost 4 min back

 

THoughts why this might be? His a strong swimmer and should have been in that front group

Well I know Mckenzie said that he was his speed suit under his wettie that affected his swim at melb, but can't be that here. At least he is with Kienle and Marino to bridge up

How far back can Mirinda Carfrae afford to be at the end of the bike?

 

 

depends who gets off the bike in front but surely she'd be ok at 10 mins or so?

I didn't think that Raelert qualified? Must have rolled down substantially as he was way behind on points at the end of the KPR period

Through 15 miles of the bike Kessler, Swallow and Ellis remain in front. 2:34 behind are Amanda Stevens and Gina Crawford.

4:39 behind are Rachel Joyce, Liz Blatchford, Daniela Ryf, Michelle Vesterby, Caroline Steffen and Leanda Cave. Of that group there are some strong runners - especially Joyce and Blatchford, but Caroline Steffen feels she's ready to run a 2:55 marathon here today, so she is very much in the mix, too. Michelle Vesterby, under the careful tutelage of new coach Luc Van Lierde, is running better than ever, too.

Rinnie 6.5 minutes behind out of the water - about 2 minutes further behind than last year. Given how ripped she was looking around town, I wonder whether she's over prepared - lost too much weight ...

Also surprised to see Raelert in the lead pack.

 

I see Kienle, Mario and Luke very close to each other. You've got to be thinking these guys are going to be steaming through together after the turn around

No it didn't. Of the guys competing for the final 10 slots he was in about 17th place - Robbo was 9th and he had about 700 more KPR points than Raelert ...

Oh, I agree that Raelert has swum well. I think he's on for a big one. ... It's kinda like now or never for him in his career!

How good is this new coverage site with favourites, map and all? Have they finally stepped up?

I put AP and GSP into the favourites but their markers didn't move, when I refreshed the page lost my favourites altogether

The markers wont move unless they have GPS tracking for each athlete. They will move once they go through each timing mat spread around the course.
