So who is going to win today?

Last year’s winner Peter Jacobs is here to defend his title and can expect a stiff challenge from the likes of Cameron Brown and Justin Granger.

My pick will be Cameron Brown to win as he certainly has the credentials and also because he lives in the Philippines and will be used to the environment.

For the women, my pick is going to be Bree Wee to win today, but of course Belinda Granger could very easily take the win as well.

If Belinda is allowed to get away on the bike she may never be caught in a 70.3 race, so Bree will have to try and stay close.
