Hoffman was forced to pull out of last year's Ironman World Championship after sustaining a sacral stress fracture during his training leading up to the race. After a winter of rehab, he's back in the hunt for more titles and another big day in Kona. A recent third-place finish at Ironman 70.3 Campeche bodes well for the American as he gears up for the race in Nelson Mandela Bay next week.
