Here we are then. The off-season. So what will you choose? Add a few extra layers and take on the winter duathlons?

Either way, it’s important to first take a little time to recover in the days after your A-race, to do a systems check and make sure your body is ready for something different. As we head into Kona, we asked some of the top pros how they plan to recover after their big race of the year – turn to p43 to see what they suggest.

Other elements of the suit are pretty techy too, though, with bust support provided by PowerMesh and a 360° underband, giving a secure…
