Barrelman Triathlon Bike Course Preview

Interview with Lionel Sanders

“I am going to do the race, take ten minutes recovery after, then do a one hour bike at Ironman race wattage straight to ten kilometers off the bike at my intended Ironman race pace. I’m very excited for the day!” – Lionel Sanders

Interview with Alex VanderLinden

“I’ve always looked at myself as a racer first, and get my best results when I am in the thick of things, so the strategy at Barrleman is to do my best to stay near the front of the race. It is going to take a strong swim to start, limit my losses on the bike, and bring it home on the run.”

Marc Buklis, First Time at Long Course

Marc Buklis is an age-grouper taking on his first long course triathlon at Barrelman this weekend, and has some great advice for balancing life and training, picking a race, setting goals and what to do afterwards (he may be a relatively recent convert, but this guy’s pretty much got it figured out).



There is still time to get join in on the excitement of this inaugural race. Online registration closes at 12 noon EDT today, but there will be race weekend in-person registration on Saturday and Sunday at Welland.
