Here's the race report. I did well. Had some dish-washing contamination in my neverreach hydration system on the bike which kinda was gross for about 20 miles, but otherwise no problem. (I figure I have the cleanest mouth in Kona. My mother would be proud!) bike split was just a little slow due to stopping at aide stations for fluids but i don't think it was major. I did miss not having more EFS on the bike... but thank goodness I had the EFS shots!
just a quick note. This was my training race for Hawaii. i wanted to use my power meter due to the hills and test strategy. I kept my effort at FTP and just above on hills and tried to push it to FTP on the down hills. The swim was a treat and the bike was my only concern. Strategy worked.

You can get your bike checked over or put together at a local bike shop, HP Bike Works, right on the Queen K. You might want to book something with them before you head over - it's usually pretty busy race week. Safe travels to the Big Island.:)

Thanks for the info. I found it very helpful. And it is good to see others who do eat gluten and perform well. I'm not yet sure of my tolerance level to it. I have cut dairy and my gas and GI distress immediately went down. But, I still have a considerable amount so I am considering trying gluten-free for a few weeks to see what happens. I will keep you updated...
