Some interesting numbers...Cervelo continues to rule the roost, but Trek & Specialized continue to make gains on them. Zipp is the master of the wheels, but I was surprised to see Mavic as #2 vs. HED. I am guessing this is because of a large portion of Euros competing in Kona vs. other IM races.

The big surprise for me was both Garmin (23) and Stages (19) had decent showings in the power meter category. New players in the category (especially Garmin). Also surprised PowerTap wasn't higher, but since this is the "pointy end of the spear", I guess I can see Quarq and SRM being a higher than normal percentage.

Great race yesterday....Mirinda Carfrae lit the women's race up and set a new course record. She is an unbelievable runner. Men's race was tough with Andrew Starkowitz looking to blow up the race on the bike (and try and set a new course record). He failed, but cracked a lot of the favorites, including the defending champ, Pete Jacobs.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!
