A favorite local tradition is to write messages with white-on-black lava rock arrangements. Looks like someone put our TR logo out in the field.

Had enough of our race expo shots? We didn't think so. Here's our next round of images from Ironman Village, just ahead of race day (Saturday). As always, there were some pretty cool toys on display at this year's edition of the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, and Hawaii continues to be the perfect backdrop for the event. Enjoy the gallery, and check back for race-day tech and images.

  • A favorite local tradition is to write messages with white-on-black lava rock arrangements. Looks like someone put our TR logo out in the field.
  • Specialized has unveiled some pretty neat color schemes for 2014, including this one.
  • The Recon Jet is a piece that looks like it belongs on the Iron Man named Tony Stark, but its cycling-specific heads-up display may prove popular with our sport's variety of Ironman.
  • Chrissie Wellington remains one of the sport's most legendary figures, who retired having never lost an Ironman race.
  • Frederik van Lierde out for a training ride.
  • van Lierde's Cervelo P5, in a relatively standard stock setup.
  • Sunsets in Kailua-Kona are pretty hard to beat.
  • The all new Specialized Alias aims to be a women's-specific all-in-one bike. I am definitely NOT a fan of road bikes with clip-on aerobars like this. I'm a believe in doing ONE, or the OTHER, even with the same frame ... but don't try to do both at the same time. The bike always comes out looking terrible, with positions to match.
