USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championships
Over 1,000 men and women representing more than 100 college clubs competed in the USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championships in Tempe, Ariz., a few weeks ago. The athletes were not only challenged by racing against one another, but also had to contend with racing on a new course since the previous year's championships were held in Tuscaloosa, Ala. As the level of competition keeps growing, athletes looking for an edge can benefit from analyzing the course and understanding how to execute a smart race.
Although the race and data analysis took place a few weeks ago, there are some great learnings for us to go back and review as a lot of folks have impending races in the coming weeks.
