The swim will be staged in the Lac d’Allier, a 2.5km-long lake that will allow spectators to follow their athletes throughout the course. The two-lap bike course is largely flat, with a few small climbs in the Allier and Puy-de-Dôme departments, with sights that include France’s only volcanoes (the Volcans d’Auvergne) and the Randan forest.

Zack Attack Resumes Battle in Malaysia

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 [Triathlon News]

Legendary IRONMAN Jurgen Zack has travelled to Malaysia in pursuit of an age group slot so he can return to Kona. It’s been nine years since the legendary German star Jurgen Zack raced as a professional in an IRONMAN. These days Zack has dedicated his life to coaching in Phuket, Thailand and a little racing as an age group athlete. He also has been known to pick up the microphone and sing a song at the local open night in Phuket (but that's another story). more

Interview with Luke McKenzie on Kona 2014

Friday 19 Sep 2014 Thorsten
Luke McKenzie Luke McKenzie was one of the big surprises in Kona 2013. Since then, he hasn’t had another really great result: He validated his Kona slot in Melbourne with a 13th place finish after some helmet strap issues, then finished Roth in 10th place. On the personal side, he and his partner Beth Gerdes became parents to their daughter Wynne who will be just over four months old when daddy has to race in Kona. Beth helped me get Luke’s perspective on Kona 2014 for my upcoming Kona Rating Report (pre-order here). Thorsten: How was your season so far? Luke: Honestly I had two very disappointing Iron-distance races. I felt really well prepared for both, but neither panned out as I expected. In Roth, I had to make the decision to “shut it down” in the run and saved my legs. I felt as though I recovered really quickly from Roth. Those are behind me as I head into Kona. I think the proof is there that I’ve been in contention the last three years in Hawaii so it’s...

Jenson Button Takes On Brownlee Brothers

Friday 19 Sep 2014 Triathlete.com
Race car driver Jenson Button has competed in several triathlons. Photo: Hugh JentryFormula 1 driver Jenson Button took part in a fitness challenge against 2012 Olympic medalists Alistair Brownlee and Jonathan Brownlee. Jenson Button has just clambered into a swim flume—swimming’s equivalent of a treadmill—with two tubes protruding from a claustrophobia-inducing mouthpiece strapped to his face. One scientist is sitting next to the small pool with two laptops. Another is using what can only be described as a fishing rod to hold up the two tubes, attached to a mobile breath-analysing computer. Even at the ‘human performance lab’ they couldn’t manage to come up with anything more sophisticated than a wooden rod. If that does not seem like enough of a handicap for Button as he begins to swim, the Brownlee brothers—the all-conquering force in triathlon—are standing close by, piling on the pressure as they await their turn in this multi-disciplinary head-to-head. “You’re wearing a...

Craig Alexander & Greg Bennett to lead Team Australia in China

Friday 19 Sep 2014 Admin
bennett Ian Hansen/TA Media They say life begins at 40 but when you’ve slogged through the miles and the races that Craig Alexander and Greg Bennett have in their extraordinary careers they are both entitled to hang up their bikes and put their feet up. But not these two “40 something’s” – two of the greatest triathletes in the history of the sport and the two highest prizemoney earners will again go head-to-head at the ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships in Weihai, in the Shandong Province on Sunday. The Sydney born boys who would eventually come together to take on the world at home and abroad as they forged their triathlon careers and win over every distance in the sport and in some of the richest races and who have both resided in Boulder, Colarado. After their extraordinary careers, which has seen them take on and beat the best, their paths are always destined to keep crossing. And as usual it won’t be a walk in the park for two of the world’s finest endurance athletes –...

Sometimes you need to suck up the bad with the good. That's what life is all about. It's all learning and moving forward. I am a very consistant racer , I train hard, am very motivated and positive. This race was a race to enjoy and move forwards to with the rest of the season.Sunny coast sure lived up to its name.With the very wet winter in Sydney , I was almost as pale as a ghost , and I was excited for my skin to get some vitamin D.I flew from Sydney on Friday morning arriving late afternoon.It wasn't as hot as I expected but it was nice to walk around with a singlet on. I did my usual unpacking , getting the bike put together , and had a relaxing afternoon. I was in bed early to wake early the next morning, I did a short training session before heading to the ironkids triathlon to hand out medals to all the little champs of our future.I love supporting these and seeing all the kids aged from 7-13years  having fun! Finished by 9am I headed to the pool for a swim, had a...

More challenging in Shepparton

Thursday 18 Sep 2014 Tim
Challenge Australia Ironman - Melbourne Several months ago I was approached from the Challenge Family to see if I’d like to race the now named Challenge Shepparton. With the revamped and much improved course how could I not say “yes.” Earlier this year I took the win at Challenge Melbourne against a very fast field and it would be great to take out the double this year in Shepparton. I’m really excited to come back to Shepparton to race again. See you there!
