Triathlon Answers was born from triathlon coach and 7-time World Championship qualifying triathlete David answering many of the same questions for the last two decades: It was obvious to him and tri wife Sara that triathletes needed a one-stop shop to get clear, concise, actionable information about training, racing, strategy, and gear. We aim to provide the best information distilled from decades of racing and coaching, running our own national triathlon team, and tons of research.
