My love for coffee is legendary, but I’ve got something else brewing. Just like coffee it takes the right ingredients and preparation to come up with quality. I’ve teased and given hints but for sure when we do announce the full details, it’ll be worth the wait.
We recorded this podcast episode just before I left for Challenge Dubai, which was the beginning of the Triple Crown — any athlete that wins all three races of the series wins a bonus of a million dollars! My men’s prediction didn’t pan out, but you can’t bet against Daniela Ryf these days.
I also spoke about a team being put together that can change the sport and pay people what they’re worth and enable them to have a platform to become excellent. It’s a vision that will see some of the best athletes race under a single banner. This team concept is something that’s been thrown around a lot, but it gains legs when you start to get multiple teams out there. It’s an exciting time for triathlon.
I haven’t done much racing lately, but I’m finding so much satisfaction in accomplishing what needs to be done to take triathlon — this sport that has given me my life — to where our best triathletes can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the world’s best athletes.
