What’s up Triathletes?
Multirace is now offering an AQUABIKE at many of their races in 2016. This is an added bonus for those athletes who are unable to run. An Aquabike is the swim/bike portion of the triathlon. So, you can choose to do the sprint, international or Half Ironman distance race minus the run. This can be a great way to stay involved in the sport of triathlon even if you have an injury and are unable to run, or simply just don’t like to run. I will recommend an Aquabike to athletes who want to learn how to push hard in the swim and bike and not have to worry about suffering on the run because your race is over after the bike. This is a great way to stay competitive and learn to pace yourself at a higher intensities just simply because you don’t have to worry about running off the bike. When triathlete’s have an injury that doesn’t allow them to run, racing an Aquabike can keep your swim and bike competitive and ready for when your injury heals and you can race a complete triathlon again.
I spent a whole year unable to run 10 years ago and I was able to stay in shape and still keep racing by competing in Aquabikes. Not many races offer them in Florida so this is a great added feature to racing with Multirace this year. If you are competitive, there is good news too! MiamiMan is the Long Course Aquabike Qualifier for World Championships this year. So if you do well you can qualify for World Championships in the Aquabike and travel to compete on an international level to represent the United States!
