Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 2...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships – continued So with the swim and transition 1 done and dusted its time to get out on the bike. If you missed part 1 – have a catch up here. Bike The bike route starts off pretty technical, 7 miles around town up and down Palani Hill before we get out onto the Queen K highway, once I exited the chute it was a short climb up the lower part of Palani and turn left for the first town loop, I got into my aero position early to make sure everything was working.

Ironman World Championships Race Report – Part 1...

Kona 2019 – World Ironman Championships The road to Kona has been well planned in our house for the last few years but as explained below the best laid plans don’t always conform to your expectations when racing an Ironman.

Cycle Insurance – Do I need it ?...

If you own a bike or two, the value is over £1000 and you train with others, then the answer is likely to be yes. Add in racing, travelling with your bike and a few gadgets and the answer starts to get a little clearer. When I was asked last year to be an Ambassador for bikmoplus.com, a new cycling insurance company I was interested but I wanted to know it was going to benefit my particular sport and something I could honestly put my name to.
