from the editor...

Some endurance challenges are so ridiculously, mind-boggling massive that it’s sometimes hard to comprehend what the average athlete can take from them. I’m thinking in particular of Ross Edgley here, who we joined this month as he completed his 1,792-mile swim around Great Britain. Breaking it down, none of us will probably ever take on a sporting challenge that requires 157 days at sea, 12-hour swims, dodging jellyfish or a disintegrating tongue (ouch). It’s all relative though and if there’s one thing I learnt from Ross, it’s how powerful determination can be when bolstered by passion, humour and an infectious, boundless enthusiasm that sweeps everyone along with you. Read more on p16 and hopefully he’ll inspire you for your next challenge, too! ■…

an olympic contender?

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. The strength in depth of British women as Olympic medal contenders has never been higher. Led by world champion Vicky Holland, a case could be made for seven women to vie for a place at Tokyo 2020 – all with a chance of a podium. But could Lucy Charles, runner-up in the Ironman Worlds in the past two years, who has never taken part in a World Series race, also be in the mix? “No IM champ has gone on to win Olympic gold. It would reverse engineer the tri mould” The Hertfordshire athlete is just 25…

The outsole, meanwhile, is full carbon and includes a replaceable heel skid plate.Also in the Transiro range are the more affordable Infinito R4 (£110) and…
