15 Mar Women to Watch in Melbourne
The women are looking forward to a highly competitive early season hit with KPR points (4000 for the winner) and a rich purse ($125,000 total) for the Ironman Asia Pacific World Championships in a few weeks.
In my opinion, the women to watch here include Carfrae, Cave, Steffen, and Bek Keat. With new coach Siri Lindley, Keat is looking again at qualifying for Hawaii this year and is a top podium contender at this race. The field is Kona strong so it will be interesting to see who has the early season fitness to come out on top.
