to add. we were on course for 49 miles and I showed 3215 elevation gain. if you add the first 7 miles, it's probably pretty close to their estimate, maybe just short.

Thanks for the detailed report, Steven! The bike course sounds challenging and I'm very excited!

My only quesiton is, weather wise, what do you predict will be the temps like on race day?

I am not a weather expert, nor a Las Vegas resident so take it with a grain of salt. Oct is a transition month so it can be a bit tricky to predict but it should be a bit cooler than current temps. Avg high for early Oct is normally high 80s and low 60s. But we could still get a 100 degree day. Prepare for everything and we'll see what we get in a few weeks. I will say that 100 in the desert was much easier than 85 degrees in humid Hawaii.

" I will say that 100 in the desert was much easier than 85 degrees in humid Hawaii." - I completely agree. I grew up in Philippines and the humidity is similar or probably even worse than in hawaii.

I'm looking at accuweather.com right now, their prediction is a high of 91. Much better than what it is right now, which is 105. I was at Palm Springs this long weekend and it was 112. It was painful and i was in the pool.

Any weather forecast more than 3-4 days out is a complete SWAG.

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
