#IM703VINEMAN (Lee Gruenfeld) Apologies for a little delay as we head out to the bike course to try to intercept the leaders
If you don't see a split for Kessler on the bike it's because her chip came off in T1. We'll get it back to her when she reaches T2.
We do have spotters on the course and will be able to get some updates on the front of the pro race. #703vineman
