I just learned through their Facebook page that the Ironman Cabo will now have a flatter bike course. This makes me happy. Instead of heading inland from San Jose del Cabo uphill toward the airport (and through the hot desert), we will instead be doing three laps between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. I'm guessing the race coordinators saw the 41% DNF (did not finish) rate, the exceptionally long bike times for those that did finish, and the comments about the bike course on the internet (most claiming that it was one of the most difficult bike courses on the circuit, with over 6,000 ft. of climbing).
Now I'm just hoping that they'll do something about the heat and the wind...
