For many, Ironman Lanzarote is seen as one of the toughest triathlons in the world. The conditions of wind and sun that the island offers, make the Ironman an even more demanding challenge.
To make the big day more bearable, Horst Reichel, professional triathlete, gives us a few tips to deal with the cycling sector. Among the tips he states that the key is to stay calm, do not rush to give everything you have from the start because it will be a long day, therefore you must concentrate on starting with a comfortable pace and reserving your energy. Remember nutrition and do not forget to drink.
Keeping a steady pace should be your main goal. Be consistent in both uphills and downhills and flat parts, with a comfortable pace without going neither too slow nor too fast.
