You get 17 hours to complete the race.

I think Hines is trying to seal his fate in Canton. Every dancing with the stars or ironman he does just gets his name out there as a versatile athlete.
You're talking about the Hoyts (http://www.teamhoyt.com/index.html ). Rick, the son, is a quadriplegic from birth. His dad pushes, pulls, bikes for the 2 of them through their races. They've done over 1000, including 6 Ironman races, as well as biking across America. It's a truely amazing, insprirational story.
