Do Triathletes Really Crash That Much? | The GTN Show Ep. 30

Published on March 7th 2018


In the triathlon world this week, we’re talking unique training venues, the growth of our sport and the passing of Sir Roger Bannister. We also discuss the first triathlon on the WTS circuit this year and think about why triathletes crash so much! Don't forget the GTN Show is for every triathlete, swimmer, cyclist and runner! Subscribe to GTN: Check out the GTN Shop: A huge thanks for all of your likes, comments, shares and subscribes so far. Our main discussion this week is why triathletes crash so much! As triathletes, we tend to be at the end of a lot of abuse from our cycling friends over the amount that triathletes crash... but is that really the case? After the WTS race in Abu Dhabi this weekend it would appear so with many pro athletes going down on s slippery F1 track. Let us know your thoughts on the topic in the comments below! Also on the show this week, we discuss: - The passing of Sir Roger Bannister, the first person to break the 4 minute mile. - A smartphone from Land Rover, one for the adventurers. - Asics agree a deal with the ITU. - Bath Half Marathon cancellation. - New members in the Women for Tri initiative. - Racing news from WTS Abu Dhabi, Ironman New Zealand and Durban Ultra.
