You know who Dan Empfield is, right? Multisport entrepreneur. Inventor of the triathlon wetsuit and triathlon racing bike. When it comes to the business side of triathlon, few people know more than Dan. He swings by the studio in Episode 14 to talk about the current state of the sport as well as where it’s headed. It’s demographics have been shifting over the last few years, causing alarm bells to go off for some. Dan, on the other hand, has a more positive outlook.

Episode 13 - Pieter Heemeryck: Maximizing Indoor Training for Outside Gains

August 12, 2019
Ironman 70.3 Champion, Pieter Heemeryck, lives in Belgium and rides a lot on Zwift — he’s a level 47! That’s 21,000 KM of Zwifting. Second only to Lionel Sanders. At least in the pro triathlon world.
 
When he won Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote, Pieter’s bike split was the fastest of the day. Same goes for his split at the 70.3 World Championships last year in South Africa. Pieter chats with us about why training indoors can translate into outdoor PRs. We also chat about recent tri news and Jordan’s first vacation in years.
