from the editor...

Certain races have a legendary reputation in the tri world. But what is it that creates that? I was lucky enough to be reporting at the Norseman this month, which is the perfect example of a race that generates huge interest for only a tiny (250) number of race starts. Yes the course is astounding – from jumping off a ferry at 5am to crawling up a brutal rock face, this event has it all – but the real sense of wonder I took away was at the grit of the competitors. From 2018 winner Allan Hovda’s meticulous prep and inch-perfect race plan, to the age-groupers screaming with victory before collapsing in a spent heap on the ground, it was the people and emotions that truly made this race.…

dive into the world of tri

Some much-needed support is provided at the Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon, one of the toughest iron-distance tri’s in the world. 2018 wins came from Norway’s Allan Hovda (10:05:48) and Mette Petterson (11:16:10), who destroyed the women’s record by 48mins.

from angry bird to goat?

TIM HEMING Cutting through the spin of tri to address the issues that matter, Tim is a sports journalist who has written extensively on triathlon for the national press. There’s a story former pro triathlete Belinda Granger likes to tell about the 2007 Ironman World Championship when an unknown competitor from Norfolk cycles passed the line of established pro’s at the front of the race. “Well, there goes this year’s winner,” Granger calls out and is met with a collective ‘Who is she?’ “A new athlete I’ve been training with,” the Australian replies. “And her strength is the run.” That was the last the pick of the Ironman women’s crop would see of Chrissie Wellington at close quarters that day, and it was also the first time she…

everysight raptorar

(THESECRETSTUDIO.NET) A spin-off from an Israeli defence company who make displays for 90% of the world’s fighter jet helmets, Everysight launched their first augmented reality eyewear in 2015. And, after a Eurobike show launch in July, they’ve released their second generation Raptor AR, which seek to provide riders with the real-time data and information while riding. Where Raptor differ from the likes of fellow augmented cycling eyewear brands Recon Jet and 4iiii is that the display is integrated into the headset (instead of an extra unit on the arms), which then overlays data directly into the line of sight of the rider.Key real-time information includes speed, distance, heart rate, RPM and cadence, and the Raptor AR also records HD video, has navigation facilities and the ability to play music,…
