Best Bike Split will be back at Kona in full force with analysis of the race on IronmanLIVE, as well as interviews with race favorites and of course some fun bike predictions. We will be monitoring the weather and checking out which athletes are on new equipment to refine our predictions right up to race day. This year we are fortunate enough to have some inside knowledge from pros, so you can look forward to great interviews and content all week long.
