Predictions and where and how to watch 2016 IRONMAN Hawaii Triathlon - weather will factor in as always!

As every year since 1998 a brief and crisp outlook and guess on the 2016 IRONMAN World Championship race. So, who is gonna win, based on last years Kona performance and overall progress the last 12 months? Putting  controversial race marshall judging or mysterious technical issues right in or out of T1 aside all eyes are for sure on Mirinda Carfrae and Daniela Ryf as well as Sebastian Kienle and Jan Frodeno. Looking up into the Kona sky, one could wonder, if we'll see similar conditions as in 2006. Cloud, very mild temperatures down to 79°F and fair not strong Mumuku winds. If this will happen, Ironman Hawaii 2016 could be the sub8 hours men's winning performance and the day of the big and heavier athletes and fast runs cross the board to shine.
