Holy cow, I am glad I am not doing IMTX this year. This race had an AWESOME bike route but this year due to rain, construction, acts of god, the global warming, El Nino, etc. the route had to be changed and SHORTENED!! The route is now only 94 miles. The route has about 80 turns. There is a turn about every 1.1 miles on average. That is going to be a mother of a route. I also feel for those who have to do a shortened race. My first Ironman had the swim canceled and it was a heartbreaker.
