Red hot run­ning! Siz­zle

220 Triathlon Magazine - - From The Editor -

this sum­mer! No, not some kind of saucy Ly­cra-filled fi­nal dis­ci­pline an­tics, but the Com­mon­wealth Games 10km medal­list Ju­lian Goater’s es­sen­tial spring sets and group ses­sions based in sunny Brack­nell, com­plete with bril­liant in­frared spe­cial ef­fects lifted straight out of thePreda­tor­movies (see im­age right). Goater’s sound speed ad­vice is as rel­e­vant to­day as it was 20 years ago, with vary­ing in­ten­si­ties, adding in­ter­vals and in­jury pre­ven­tion all thrown into the pre-sea­son mix.

The race re­ports in is­sue 86 are duathlon heavy, with a cou­ple of races that we’d cer­tainly like to see re­vived – Pow­er­man Guernsey and the220-or­gan­ised Giverny trail duathlon in north­ern France – dom­i­nat­ing the race sec­tion. The lat­ter was won by world cham­pi­onship-win­ning off-road triath­lete Olivier Marceau, with UK rac­ing leg­end Si­mon Less­ing fir­ing the starter’s horn.

We also re­viewed sports nu­tri­tion gi­ant Sci­ence in Sport’s first en­ergy bar – the Go Bar, which is still go­ing strong in their now much-ex­panded range 20 years later.

As it was 1997 after all, the gear pages are full of two-piece tri-suits and plenty of flesh, which is sur­pris­ingly timely as we’ll be turn­ing to the shorts and sin­glets theme next month in our two-piece race suits test.
