Weekend Race Report:
Not a race, but very impressive nonetheless: Travis Samuel of Toronto set a Guinness World Record for "Longest Zwift Ride in 24 Hours
" by riding 1,008 kilometers (626 miles).
Events We're Looking Forward To:
Many people have asked if there will be any racing this season. Many Ironman and 70.3 events have already been postponed or cancelled, but others (like 70.3 CDA
) are still scheduled for their original date. Find the full Ironman/70.3 race date list here

Gear That Caught Our Attention:
When was the last time you washed your helmet? If you're like me, possibly never. I've been looking into this recently due to COVID-19, but it would be a good practice to get into regardless. Here is a review of the best practices
to clean and sterilize a helmet.

If You Have a Moment to Spare:
Zwift is a blast, but it's not real life. Some of the top triathletes in the world were humbled in the most recent Zwift Pro Tri race by athletes they never heard of before- a reflection of Zwift's clear issues and limitations. Despite taking a possible hit to his self-esteem, Lionel Sander's thoughts on the matter
were the most insightful.
Have a great week!
