Tim DeBoom Joins IRONMAN Hall of Fame
Tim DeBoom, the American triathlon legend, is one of four people selected to be inducted into the IRONMAN Hall of Fame in 2019. This year, two athletes and two contributors have been selected for the honor. With four podium finishes within a four year period, Tim DeBoom has certainly left his mark on the island of Kona. Between 1999 and 2002, Tim DeBoom dominated at IRONMAN Kona, taking the victory in 2001 and defending his title again in 2002.
Aero Helmets for Kona
Improving your aerodynamics is one of the easiest and most effective ways to get faster on the bike. In triathlon, where you spend a good chunk of your overall race time on the bike, aerodynamic equipment can save you minutes depending on the course distance, terrain, and conditions.
Racing with Power in Kona
Preparing for Kona and developing a race strategy requires experience and understanding of the course. One of the most important pieces of the Kona puzzle comes with knowing how to utilize your power meter to most effectively execute the 112-mile bike.
