With Kona less than a month away people are starting to turn their attention to who they think is going to win and Mark Allen has gone out on a limb and predicted wins for Daniela Ryf and Kristian Blummenfelt. We joke, but is there anyone capable of beating them on the big island? Ryf has a proven record there and Kristian has taken the 'rules' of triathlon and torn them to pieces. We also unpack all of the action from Super League London, discuss a bizarre DNF in Mexico and once again...

As is becoming quite the pattern, when we start to doubt an athlete they make a triumphant return and prove us wrong! That was certainly the case over the weekend in Swansea where Alistair Brownlee put together an amazing performance to comfortably win. That is just one of the races we recap this weekend as well as the new transgender athlete policy from World Triathlon, the return of Lucy Charles-Barclay and whether racing categories like cycling could work for triathlon.

Considering a big part of our audience probably doesn't know (or care) what the Commonwealth Games are, we are going to pretend like we don't spend a lot of time talking about the Commonwealth Games this week. If we did talk about the Commonwealth Games though we would probably discuss all the drama from the men's race and the absolute domination of Flora Duffy in the women's race. We do talk a lot about the announced captains' picks for the European and US Collins Cup teams and the...

Last week, minutes after we finished recording, the PTO released the points from Challenge Roth (last week we interviewed the winner) which saw Magnus Ditlev receive the most points of any male performance in history. The PTO called this the greatest ever performance!  So this week, we discuss this in detail. Was it the best ever performance? Or is that something that cannot be decided based purely on numbers and algorithms? We also discuss the news that Jonny Brownlee will miss the...
