The MX Endurance Podcast

This week we are joined by British long course star, Ruth Astle. Ruth was the fastest amateur female overall in Kona in 2019 and since then has multiple Ironman victories under her belt.

We discuss the transition from amateur to pro, the challenges she has faced as a new pro and the balance of trying to win races and race against the best.

We also preview all the action from Clash Daytona where Kristian Blummenfelt is back in action, Indian Wells 70.3 where we will see Lionel Sanders up against short course starts Vincent Luis and Jelle Geens and the news that Zwift is the new sponsor of Sub7sub8.

Macca is back to talk us through one of the most anticipated races this year, Jan Frodeno v Gustav Iden later this month in California.

Will Jan reclaim his world number 1 ranking? Will he break the official Ironman world record? Will he prove that he is still the benchmark of long distance racing? Or will we see the dawn of a new era with Gustav Iden proving why he is the world number 1? 

It will be a big ask at his first ever IM distance event but whatever happens it is sure to be a race you won't want to miss!

You heard it here first last year when Kristian and Gustav said Norway want to win the Olympics AND Kona this year and now it's been confirmed!

This week we take a look at the news that Kristian Blummenfelt is officially going after not only Olympic gold but also a Kona title as well. If that isn't enough? He also wants a WTCS World title too. We look at just how jam packed his schedule is, talk about the negative reactions to the announcement and also look at which other short course stars we can expect to see go long now the Olympics are over.

We also run though all of the action from the Olympic Mixed Team Relay that saw Team GB win the inaugural event, USA secure silver and France get a bronze.

No you did not misread the title of this week's episode.

Lucy Charles-Barclay has announced that she is not just trying to go sub 8 next year, she wants to beat Jan Frodeno's current Iron Distance record of 7:35!

We discuss the implications of this achievement and look at Lionel Sanders pathway to Kona for 2021 and if the Canadian will decide not to line up in Kona this year and instead focus on the Collins Cup.

Throughout the history of triathlon there have been so many incredible performances and so many incredible athletes. But who are the greatest female triathletes of all time?

This week we are joined by Annie Emmerson to determine once and for all who the greatest of all time are! With so many incredible athletes to choose from who will come out on top? Will it be Daniela Ryf who has dominated long course racing for what feels like forever or maybe Chrissie Wellington who came onto the scene, made a statement and then vanished? What about the Queen of Kona, Paula Newby-Fraser or Nicola Spirig who is about to go to her 5th Olympics!

We have sorted through and ranked the top-10 female triathletes of all time!

On the list of things that get better with age you wouldn't probably put triathletes but Jan Frodeno is proving that age is but a number after a commanding performance over the weekend leaving us to wonder, is there anyone who can beat him?

To tackle such a big question we thought we should bring in the big guns so Macca joins us this week to give us his thoughts on whether anyone can beat the German powerhouse and if so how.

We also preview this weekend's St George 70.3, talk about Ironman taking away the swim and Daniela Ryf leaving her coach.

Adam then turns his attention the upcoming Sub7Sub8 Project by the Pho3nix Foundation and goes through just how hard a 180km TTT is going to be. Adam's extensive experience in the pro peloton gives us an insight into what the project is going to take, what will be needed to succeed and why the physical challenge might not be as hard as the mental challenge.

A news packed episode this week with so much to talk about including the Super League Arena Games, Ironman New Zealand, Geelong 70.3 and a look at the recent Tokyo qualification of Chris Thompson, an On sponsored athlete who wore a blacked out pair of Nike's with permission from On.

This makes us ask the question, if every athlete is choosing to wear the Nike super shoes why would they ever sponsor an athlete again? Almost every pro athlete in any race now uses Nike if they are sponsored or not. So will we see an end to athlete sponsorship for shoes or will other brands catch up?

Fresh of her win at Challenge Miami, two time Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist joins us this week to talk about her impressive result at Challenge Miami.

We talk about Jodie's race in Miami, her thoughts on this new format and distance of racing and what we can expect to see of her this year. We also talk her about the highs and lows of her career including her many ITU wins, stepping up to long course and not getting to compete at the Olympics.

We also do a debrief on both the men's and women's races at Challenge Miami, where half of the hosts picked the male podium and the other half... didn't. We look at Jan Frodeno's masterclass and try to unravel the mystery, 'how does Lionel run so fast while looking so bad?'

This week we turn our attention towards what we can expect to see in 2021 in triathlon.

Will the Olympics happen? Who will win? What about the 70.3 and Ironman World Championships? Can we finally see a return to long course championship racing or are we going to have to wait until 2022? What will this mean for athletes like Tim O'Donell, Jan Frodeno and even Daniella Ryf? We give our picks for the Kona, 70.3 and Olympic podiums and our thoughts on the chances of all of these races happening.

2020 saw the introduction of the Professional Triathletes Organisation and their first event, the PTO Championship in Daytona. It also saw lots of people asking the same questions about the PTO. What are they? What is their business model? How do they plan to make money? Why don't they get along with Ironman? 

This week we are joined by the CEO of the PTO, Sam Renouf to answer all of your questions about the PTO. Sam was incredibly open, honest and candid with his answers to all of your questions.

Lots to unpack this week with the news that Daniela Ryf has done a 'Lionel' and is out injured, endurance sports tv is crowdfunding and the PTO is supporting even more races.

We also saw a number of races happen around the world with some of the biggest names in the sport lining up in Cairns for the Asia-Pacific Championship. We round-up all the professional racing then turn our eye to the age group race.

199 age group finishers competed for 75 Kona slots in Cairns and the internet has done what the internet does. This makes us ask the question? Is this the end of Kona? What do we mean? We mean, does this change people's opinions of racing Kona? Is it about getting the strongest field possible to line up or as many athletes on the pier as possible?

Long course triathlon has been dominated by Jan Frodeno and Daniela Ryf in recent years. So much so that most of their competition have admitted that they don't even think they can beat them!

Does this mean that Jan and Dani have beaten their competitors before the race has even begun? Who or what will it take for someone to stand up to their dominance and not be afraid? Who if anyone can beat them?

To discuss this we are joined by Macca to get his insights into the who, what and why of this question.

In recent years it has been complete German domination at long course racing and a big part of the success of Germany is multiple World Champion, Sebastian Kienle.

This week we are extremely lucky to be joined by 2014 Ironman World Champion Sebastian Kienle. Sebi is one of the biggest names in the sport and part of the fabric of long distance racing.

This week we discuss the impact of 2020, the emergence of the PTO, Lionel Sanders and how at 36 his desire to improve and become a better athlete is stronger than ever.

No one is more dialled in to the changing dynamic of the triathlon world than the Kona winner and uber-biker who is now looking for a new edge to take to the competition.

What a weekend of triathlon with Iron Man, 70.3, XTERRA and even a little ITU World Championship all happening.

We round up the all the racing that happened over the weekend including all of the action from the ITU World Championship. We also look at the PTO supported Helvellyn Triathlon.

All of the racing action, coverage and lack thereof raises the question whether Iron Man is critical to the future success of triathlon? Would Kona still be as iconic if it wasn't called an Iron Man?

You have probably heard that Super League is triathlon done differently and that was certainly the case on the weekend at the SLT Arena Games.

The Arena games saw athletes compete in both the real and virtual world with swims in a pool, riding and running on Zwift. This new format for triathlon was created out of necessity but was it exciting enough to stick around?

MX Endurance gives you the definitive post-race round up as we are joined by Macca to discuss the event as well as interviews with both winners, Jess Learmonth and Justus Nieschlag.

With no Kona this year or much racing at all, we look to the future to try and work out who we think will be the next new Kona champions. Who will be the next male and female athletes to win Kona who have never won Kona before?

Will it be crowd favourite Lionel Sanders or will his second place be his best effort? Can Lucy Charles-Barclay put together a performance good enough to beat Daniela Ryf? Or do we need to look further into the future at up and coming stars like Kristian Blummenfelt or Ashleigh Gentle?

We also discuss the announcement of Taupo 2022 for 70.3 World Championships, the return of professional cycling and Joe Skipper's crazy 12-hour record

This week we are joined by John McAvoy, a former armed robber and one of Britain’s most wanted men.

Born into a crime family, he’s had two spells in prison and ultimately found redemption through the power of sport. Given two life sentences and given assurances by the justice system that he’d never change and always be a danger to society John started his stay in one of Britain’s highest security prisons.

John’s story is fascinating for so many reasons, but ultimately because it highlights the importance and power of sport and the power of opportunity - the difference between having it or not.

Few athlete have have had as big an impact on the sport of triathlon as Chrissie Wellington. A 4-time Kona champion, Chrissie is the fastest woman to ever complete an IronMan distance event and has 5 of the fastest ever recorded results out of the all-time top 10.

As quick as she raced, she came and went retiring in 2011 undefeated at the IronMan distance after one of the toughest Kona victories by any competitor on the big island. This interesting conversation focuses on how triathlon changed Chrissie as a person, the impact it has had on her life and the what the pressure of being undefeated was like.

This week we get inside the head of one of the most successful triathletes of all time. You are probably no stranger to who Macca is and this is a rare opportunity to find out what went through his head when he was racing. We discuss the champion mindset that allowed him to overcome his competitors and the voices inside his head that told him to stop.

This week we also discuss the changes to the 2020 World Championship events and what this means for 2021. We look at the new Lance Armstrong documentary and changes to Strava.

If you sign up for our new podcast membership you get a special bonus monthly episode with Chris McCormack exclusively available for MX Endurance members.

This week we are excited to be joined by Australian triathlete and professional cyclist, Cameron Wurf.

Cam has raced as an Olympic rower, professional cyclist (currently signed with Team Ineos) AND finished fifth in Kona in 2019. We talk about Cam's return to cycling, the impact that he has had on professional triathlon and his pursuit of high performance. 

This is another great opportunity to gain insight into what is involved in being one of the strongest athletes in the world.

We also look at 70.3 World Championship changes (with confirmation being made after we recorded) and finally jump on the Lionel Sanders bandwagon.

This week we are extremely lucky to be joined by Emma Frodeno (Snowsill), Australia’s only Olympic triathlon gold medalist, Commonwealth gold medalist, and three time world champion. We look back at her journey through triathlon, how it led to the high of 2008, how that race felt, and what followed. This is an amazing opportunity to do a deep dive into success at the highest level of our sport (and laugh about it!)

We also discuss the possibility of Ironman moving their world championship to 2021 and doubling up in that year, while Tim talks through the changes being made to the IMVR series (he’s a big fan).

Unless you live in a cabin in the middle of the woods and are only a triathlete so you can jump on your exercise bike to power your off the grid cabin, you have heard of the PTO!

There have been rumours, conspiracy theories and even suggestions that the PTO killed JFK! But we are here this week to set the record straight about why you should support the PTO and their mission to make triathlon great.

We are joined by PTO Chairman, Charles Adamo who answers all (most) of our questions about how the PTO will work, how their business model works and why this is giving the power back to the greatest triathletes in the world.

This week we do a bit more research into what the PTO and Collins Cup are all about. We discuss Cam Wurf signing with Team Ineos and the changes to regulations around running shoes. 

We then present our 2020 endurance sports predictions. Who will win Kona, what upsets will we see in Tokyo, will there be a 'real' sub 2-hour marathon, will Lionel Sanders remember to drink water in Kona? We speculate on all of the things we want to see happen in 2020 and actually have a fair few disagreements.
