Last year’s third-place finisher Linsey Corbin moved from the field to the sidelines after getting a flat while heading into Lake Mead National Park, less than 10 miles from the start. Corbin says it was her first flat in a race since 2007 and the first time she didn’t pack a flat kit.

She remains optimistic, noting that Kona is her ultimate goal this year.
