A LISTENER QUESTION: TSS WORKOUT OF THE WEEK: Drafting. ONE STEP AHEAD: Real food options for real food athletes. HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEW – BART AERNOUTS: With a recent win at Ironman Lanzarote and a top ten at Kona last year Belgian triathlete Bart Aernouts has already qualified for the Ironman World Champs. Viewed as one of the most consistent triathletes on the Ironman circuit Bart has qualified many times for Kona and, with the support of his team BMC-Etixx, has raced to a top 10 on nearly every occasion. This year he’s decided to also take on Challenge Roth. We look forward to watching his progress.
