Cheap Speed – Tips for a faster bike split
by prhim Feb 21st 2011
We all know that triathlon is an expensive sport. If we’re honest, the appeal lies at least partly in the shiny kit and we love to satisfy our ‘inner geeks’. We part with hard-earned cash in the hope that the latest gizmo will shave another couple ...
Race Report: Chilly Duathlon, Castle Combe
by prhim Nov 22nd 2010
The Chilly Duathlon holds a special significance for me. Not because it's an especially iconic race or anything like that (although I think it is a great end-of-season blow-out race for people of all abilities), but because it's the first multi-spor...
