Just one week out from Ironman Hawaii 2017, and already the tension is palpable on the island. We caught up with Jan Frodeno, two-time defending World Champion, as he got in some training miles out on the Queen K. This rig looks to be much the same as his 2016 whip, complete with custom ultra-narrow extension hardware not available to the general public. No word on whether his 2017 whip is any different, but I'd bet on new paint for Saturday's race. Check the gallery below for more.
Frodeno remains the odds-on favorite to win on Saturday, and nothing this year suggests the odds-makers have anything to worry about.
