    The IRONMAN World Championship in Kona has created some legends of the sport and in some peoples view it is the very pinnacle of sporting endeavour. This year’s edition is set to be one of the greatest we have ever witnessed.

    The start list for the men’s and women’s races boast Olympic Champions, World Champions and World record holders across all distances of triathlon, setting up an incredible battle between the very best the sport has seen over the last decade (and perhaps lifespan) of the sport.

    HUUB’s greatest hopes lie in double Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee (GBR) and David McNamee (GBR) who has finished 3rd in 2017 and 2018, but they will certainly not have an easy run!

  • The Ironwar: 30 years on

    Thirty years ago, at the Ironman World Championships, Dave Scott and Mark Allen had an epic battle. Most people know the peripheral story, but no one knows the details of each of their lives in the year-long buildup to this race, or the real race story.

  • Alistair Brownlee

    The spectacular course in Nice attracted stars from both the ITU and long course circuit and was the perfect test for both types of athletes. Alongside the PRO men and women, thousands of Age Group athletes also headed to the south of France to try and claim a World title on a somewhat unconventional championship course.

  • Alistair Brownlee

    HUUB's Alistair Brownlee (GBR) will start as one of the favourites in the men's race after finishing a close second last year. The double Olympic Champion looks to have had a better build-up to the Championships this year so we will hope to see him full of racing come Sunday.

    After the UCI made its irrational decision and we made our feelings known, plenty of you have been in touch to show your support and let us know what you think.

    We might have lost our right to race - for now - but pleased to see you haven't lost your sense of humour. We can't tell you how much it means to know you're in our corner - and the party doesn't end here…

  • Jonny Brownlee WTS Edmonton

    Jonny Brownlee (GBR) delivered a commanding victory on the streets of Edmonton over the weekend, overturning the run of bad luck that has plagued his 2019 season. The double Olympic medallist showed why he is labelled as one of the all-time greats of the sport and certainly an athlete that will contend the medals come Tokyo.

    There was double success for Brownlee alongside HUUB's Gordon Benson and Sophie Coldwell, as they and India Lee claimed 2nd in the mixed relay event for Team GB.
