Post-Kona Update From Ben Hoffman

After a tough day in Kona plagued by stomach troubles on the run, Hoffman didn't have the follow-up race to his 2014 2nd place finish that he was hoping for this year. Hoffman has been in Hawaii since the race and will take on the XTERRA World Championship in Maui on Sunday. He qualified for XTERRA Worlds by finishing runner-up at the Mountain Championship in Beaver Creek, Colo., earlier this summer. Hoffman talks about the confidence he was still able to gather from a disappointing day in Kona, and how he'll spend the remainder of the season, which includes a trip to the Bahamas next week for the exclusive, $500,000 prize purse Island House Tri.
