Welcome to 2019! The start of a shiny new year means that race season is only a few short months away (hurray!). So have you set your goals yet? Whether that’s your first tri or you want to smash a PB, we’ve got your back. Turn to p89 for our 8-week beginners’ training plan, or if you’re going long, find everything you need for M-dot success on p28. It’s always worth remembering that plans may need to change, though! I’m just back from racing the Nevis Triathlon (that’s the Caribbean Nevis, not the chilly Scottish one), an impulsive winter addition to the end of a season derailed by a series of annoying, niggling ankle problems. So for me, 2019 is about working on some serious S&C (p45) to keep…

all power to the people

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. For professional endurance sport to succeed, transparency has to be a cornerstone. As history shows, if there’s an aura of secrecy, faith in the product ebbs away. But is there a limit?

The fabric also includes mesh and dimpled areas with the dual aim of increased ventilation and aerodynamic improvements, respectively, as well as UV protection. Elsewhere, there’s an Italian chamois targeted at long-distance cushioning, a full-length zip for race-day convenience and two rear pockets. Two-piece and vested versions are also available.Find out how the…
