After Talbot Cox reported yesterday that Ironman California might be cancelled due to a severe storm that would break out on race day, the race will take place today (Sunday 24). However, it will be in a modified form, as the bike course will be shortened from 180 kilometers to 90 kilometers.
It is possible that professional athletes will complete a full LD, but there is still some uncertainty about this. Around 2 o’clock in the afternoon – American time, when most athletes are normally still on their bikes – a big storm with rain and wind will hit the race location. “This is completely out of our control unfortunately. We will do everything we can to give you the day of your lives,” said by the organization.
