Staff and athletes from British Triathlon took on Volvo Car UK staff in a battle to cover the most distance on Wednesday 11 March in aid of Sport Relief.
Volvo Car UK are the National Governing Body’s Official Vehicle Provider, and two of their offices raced against each other and the British Triathlon Head Office in a three-way battle to see who could cycle the furthest in five hours.
The challenge took place on turbo trainers provided by Wahoo, the Official Turbo Trainer of British Triathlon, with one set up in each of the three locations.
Having made his debut on the World Paratriathlon Series last month, Michael Taylor joined the British Triathlon staff in Loughborough to cheer them on alongside double World Champion Hannah Moore and elite guide and IRONMAN Pro Nikki Bartlett, with 2016 Paralympian George Peasgood having a go.
The three offices were linked via Zwift (British Triathlon member benefit), allowing them to compete interactively across the same course and track how far ahead or behind each other they were.
The British Triathlon team took the victory, covering a total distance of 166.6km. Volvo Daventry completed 160.7km in the same time, with the second office in Maidenhead recording 148.5km.
British Triathlon Performance Programme athletes have also been offering insight and messages of support to BBC Radio 2 presenters Rev Kate Bottley, Jo Whiley and Richie Anderson as they set out to complete three triathlons in three days for their Dare 2 Tri Sport Relief challenge.
You can hear Peasgood and Lauren Steadman on Good Morning Sunday with Rev Kate Bottley and Jason Mohammad this Sunday, 15 March.
