A bucket-list event – Gareth Pile’s Challenge Roth experience

  Symphonic , calming gladiator music welcomed us into T1 2 hours before the start of what they say is the second best thing next to Kona and definitely the best event I have ever experienced …… Challenge Roth 2017. The goose bumps started immediately, and as we checked our bikes, nutrition and transition bags, slowly a massive chunk of the famous Roth crowds (250 000) started building and lining the bridge over the Danau canal....

Jeren Seegers – 2nd overall and 1st 30-34 age group

Go Down Swinging It has become quite apparent that I enjoy racing in winter and the Durban 70.3. Three Durban 70.3’s, three age group wins and three, second place finishes. The season has been a rough one but with huge learning curves. The buildup to Durban was far from fabulous, more missed sessions than ever before, numbers so low that I would win every limbo party and running was more of a chore that hurt than something of a...

A superb come back race for James Welsh – Dbn 70.3

Durban 70.3 Durban in many respects is a world class 70.3 triathlon venue. It has a fantastic bike course which is closed to vehicles with a mostly very smooth tar surface and some suggestions of hills thrown in to keep you honest. The run course is flat on the well manicured promenade but this all comes at a price and that is in dealing with the temperamental ocean. There are two options for the sea swim, either swim from the race...

Kelly van der Toorn – Winner 40-44 AG and 3rd placed lady overall

Nobody, nobody has a perfect race build-up, especially not a veteran mom-of-three whose husband was working away in Europe during exam period at school. I had made one significant change to my training a few weeks back – communicating after each Tissink Training Peaks session.  I noticed little adjustments in the week ahead, and was just responding so well to the mix of sessions that I almost didn’t want to start a taper.  I was...

Helder Silva – Dbn 70.3 Race Report

IM 70,3 Durban2017…Race Report…Using the race weekend as a getaway for a few days…Last few weeks, some discomfort on lower back and sciatic nerve, was a warning… let my coach know about it, and he showed me a few exercises, and doing it, the pains eased down. I also didn’t realize how emotional matters, can compromise your fitness. And no matter how many triathlons I did, as this was the 3rd in Durban,...

Great PB for Luvuyo Bangazi at Durban 70.3

Success at 2nd IM Durban 70.3 June 20, 2017 | Luvuyo Bangazi  The build up t Durban 70.3 could not have been more interesting. After having had an amazing Ironman African Champs in April with a finish time of 11hr20min, I was already looking forward to taking a break and focusing on the next Iron distance event, Challenge Regensburg in Aug, or so I thought. It didn’t take much to convince me that I needed a preparation race to...
