>>I have to ask though, any thoughts on moving the front end up so that Bjorn can actually digest the calories needed to run? Or move the aerobars out a just ittle so the diaphram has more room to breath...again, so he can run?<<
This has been covered ad nauseum on this forum- Bjorn's position has nothing to do with digestion or ventilation. He breaths just fine. Issues with Bjorn's nutrition is getting enough calories in over an Ironman, not digestion. Due to peristalsis, you can drink eate and digest upside down, let alone in a low aero position. What does happen when Bjorn gets his nutrition right? He will win a race like Timberman 70.3 by over 10 minutes. We worked really hard with Mike Folan from InfinIT to dial in what Bjorn needs nutrition wise and since we have done that this summer, we have not had issues since. The litmus test will be when he races Ironman South Africa and we will see if he an absorb enough calories over 180k instead of the 90k in a 70.3.
