Aquabike (WQE)

No it’s not a watercraft with really big wheels, it’s the latest event in triathlon circles to be added to the WT World Championships. Essentially it’s the same as the long course, just without the run. It’s the swim, then through transition 1 and onto the bike and finishing off when the athlete passes into transition 2.

Maybe you are suffering from an injury that requires non-impact activity, maybe you just don’t like to run or maybe you have another event on the horizon and don’t want to wear yourself out. With the addition of Aquabike to Husky Long Course you can now be part of the action.

This year’s event is an Australian Championships event, and an WT World Qualifying Event for Townsville 2022.
