Predictions! Matthes, Weege and JT predict Herlings’ results at Ironman!
Racer X guys Steve Matthes, Jason Weigandt and Jason Thomas gave their predictions on Herlings’ results this weekend at Ironman in the Budds Creek race review podcast:
Matthes: 4-2, “He’s got Marty, Seely and those guys covered, no offence to those guys. Baggett is injured, I think Baggett can beat him straight up if things worked out but Baggett is hurt. Then you have Tomac who might ride around safely for the title and then you have Marv, so he is going to sniff the podium all the time…if he goes 1-1 I’m smashing my computer because I can’t deal with these people (fans), I’m off the grid!”
Weege: 3-2 “It’s not disrespecting his speed to not say 1-1, it’s just the format is going to be so bizarre to him, basically riding 20 minutes of practice in total and I am sure these tracks are prepped different to what he is used in general, so there are a lot of things to just to go out his first shot, it’s going to make it a little more difficult. If it was an even enough situation for everyone I might just go ahead and say 1-1.”
