Winning Odds

Male Race Participants

Sebastian Kienle has changed his season plan a bit, this year he’ll be trying to do an early validation of his Kona slot and of course he is the clear favorite for Cozumel. Of course there will be a slight question mark how fresh he is going to be just six weeks after Kona, but that applies to most of his competition as well.

  • Sebastian Kienle: 79% (1-1)
  • Michael Weiss: 7% (12-1)
  • Ivan Rana: 6% (17-1)
  • Stefan Schmid: 3% (30-1)

Female Race Participants

The female race also features a number of athletes that have raced Kona, but Michelle, Anja, and Sonja haven’t quite had the race they were looking for. Lisa Roberts¬†will be on the start line coming off a win at IM Louisville one day after Kona.

  • Michelle Vesterby: 51% (1-1)
  • Lisa Roberts: 23% (3-1)
  • Anja Beranek: 11% (8-1)
  • Sonja Tajsich: 6% (17-1)

In addition to the athletes who already have a lot of experience on the IM distance, Helle Frederiksen is also on the start list (though it’s not clear if she’ll race here or in Arizona a week before) and will be looking to mix things up.
