All nations triathlon review

All nations triathlon review

I’ve participated in the all nations volleyball tournament. While I loved the concept, I was disappointed about the spirit (it might just have been the French team). I was happy to see it applied to triathlon, but, again, it didn’t raise up to my expectation as apart from our swimming hat, there was nothing making it different from one of the many triathlon events in the area. One wave was entirely dedicated to a triathlon club! I would have preferred a wave from America, Europe, Asia, and so on.

Venue

The all nations triathlon takes place in the Dorney lake Olympic venue near Windsor. It’s a great place as there is plenty space to park and no traffic. But it can get windy which makes the bike ride tricky.

Organisation

The event was well organised, with seamless registration, well-watched transition area, and waves starting at the expected time.

Race

Swim

The swim takes place in the lake, which was surprisingly hot. You go straight, turn right at the first pull boy, right again at the second one and then straight again before exiting the water.

Bike

You go around the lake, without having to worry about the traffic as there is none. It’s flat, so you can go for it, it’s probably gonna be one of your fastest bike ride in triathlons. The downside, the wind. It can blow hard.

Value for Money

A good triathlon, but don’t get too excited about its ‘title’.
