What if we could bring the best triathletes together, have them race freely and chase the impossible?
In other sports, it’s often outside of regular championship racing where we see the best competitive moments and records occur. Create a competitive environment, take away the title chase, deliver an event with the world’s best throwing it all down and athletes will take chances and go for it.
It happened in Roth in 1996, when Germany’s Lothar Leder raced the world’s best and became the first to smash the magical 8-hour mark in the iron distance.
Nearly a quarter of a century later, just what is the current crop of athletes capable of achieving if they did the same and laid it all down? What would happen if, like in athletics, just such an environment was created to see these guys chase an actual endurance mark that shows what is humanly possible?
