RACING IS BACK…
Despite ongoing race cancellations, one notable bright spot is this weekend’s SLT Arena Games to be held in Rotterdam, NED.
Co-developed by Super League Triathlon and Zwift, this indoor event is the brainchild of 4-time World Champion Chris McCormack. It promises to deliver an exciting blend of real-life and virtual racing among some of the greatest names in the sport.
The competition is a Triple Mix format, wherein 3 different combinations of pool swimming, Zwift cycling and treadmill running will be contested with very little rest between races.
Distances are intensely short: 200m swim, 4km bike and 1km run… This is true red-line racing for maximum excitement, ideally suited for television (PTO, are you listening?).
You can watch the event live online. Or, check your local TV listings; the organizers have secured broadcast coverage in 135 territories.
