Insider Tips for Ironman Canada
Lucky for me, racing Ironman Canada is on home turf. For most out of town athletes, they won’t have the opportunity to experience the whole course until race day, the bike course in particular. I worked with Luke Yates from Triathlon Canada Magazine to put together some insider tips of what to be prepared for on race day!
“For those getting ready for this weekend’s Ironman Canada and the new Ironman 70.3 Canada, we checked in with someone who knows the course well — and has seen success on it — to give you the best tips to master your own race. Dylan Gleeson earned his pro card after placing as the top overall age-grouper at Ironman Canada in 2014 and spends time throughout the season training on the course in Whistler, BC. In these videos, he breaks down the swim, bike and run courses individually and gives you tips on what to expect, how to save time and recommends some equipment that may be useful given the forecasted race day conditions.” – Luke Yates
