Every year the board of Hardangervidda Triatlon Klubb (the Norseman owner) awards a scholarship to an up and coming Norwegian triathlete with “international potential”.
He sits comfortably on the floor of the ferry at 4:30. Two meters and 100 kilogram of trained muscle tissue, stretched tendons – a friendly looking, beaming athlete ready to race. Not apparent to the eye of his fellow athletes is his biggest strength – his mind.
In our 16th race, 238 of the most daring triathletes representing 35 countries, once again swam the 3.8km, cycled the 180km, ran the 42.2km and ascended more than 5000m in some of Norway’s most exquisite landscapes.
After 226 kilometres of arduous swimming, cycling and running, Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon 2017 has come to an end. Both Lars Christian Vold and Anne Nevin had epic wins.
250 of the world’s bravest triathletes swarm the docks of Eidfjord, Norway at 03:00, fresh off a short night’s rest burdened with anticipation. The beginning of the Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon draws near, a wild adventure across 226km of Norway’s most demanding landscapes.
