1. It's the cyclocross offseason and there's no SVENNESS in the queue, so we are going to try something completely different: GWENNESS. For Episode 1.1 of GWENNESS we head to Abu Dhabi for round one of the ITU World Triathlon series. The elite race is a sprint distance event, meaning there is a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run. The race takes just under an hour and is more exciting than you ever thought triathlon could be. One huge factor that makes ITU triathlon fun to watch as compared to ironman-type events, is that drafting on the bike is legal. So the cycling leg of the race plays out like a road race, rather than a time trial. For this race we track the 2014 ITU World Champion, and namesake for this feature, Gwen Jorgensen.
