Triathlon Trio Battle Tricky Conditions

Triathlon Trio Battle Tricky Conditions

Dorney Lake, the venue for the 2012 Olympic rowing events, is ideally suited to fast racing with its long, flat straights. Or at least, when the weather is fair it is ideally suited to fast racing. When it is cold, wet and windy the flatness and lack of shelter can...
