Gustav Iden is presently set to make his full distance debut at IRONMAN Florida on Sunday November 6.
The Norwegian obviously was all prepared to clash with Jan Frodeno and Lionel Sanders among others at IRONMAN California last Sunday. That race however was dropped in no time before the planned beginning time due to terrible climate nearby.
A ‘bomb tornado’ brought high breezes and record-breaking precipitation, while fallen trees were tossed across the bicycle course making it difficult to race.
Initially there was no arranged PRO race for the men in Florida, yet IRONMAN moved quickly to change that – allowing racers enrolled for Sacramento the opportunity to arrange in just shy of about fourteen days’ time. Iden is as of now on location in Panama City Beach, and prepared to proceed with his planning there.
One certain in regards to the difference in plan for the double cross IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion is that it gives him more opportunity to recuperate completely from the cool he had been fighting ahead of the pack up to last Sunday in Sacramento.
Frodeno versus Iden still conceivable?
At this point there is no affirmation concerning whether Frodeno should seriously mull over heading for Florida to revive that much-advertised gathering with Iden. To entangle matters for him, he has other variety of things to do move in Europe this end of the week – in particular the new SGRAIL 100 race he is arranging in his Girona base. That happens on Sunday (October 31).
We likewise hold on to check whether Sanders will race in Florida. He had said he was finished with full-distance hustling this year in the wake of completing a far off second to Joe Skipper in Chattanooga in September. In any case, he turned around course to give it a shot for California.
