ZWIFT TRI BATTLE Royale announces first ever World Record NFT

The TRI BATTLE NFT celebrates the crowning moment of an historic day with Jan Frodeno setting a brand new World Record in 7:27:53.

In another historic first, the World Record is minted as an NFT. An NFT, or ‘non-fungible token’, is a unique, digital certificate that is stored on a blockchain and provides certain ownership rights in an asset such as a digital work of art. NFTs are described as ‘non-fungible’ because each one is unique and of different value.

Lionel is battle-hardened and knows how to put up a fight. During his university years he struggled with an unhealthy lifestyle and personal issues. But, determined to be better, Lionel fought his way back and now is the hottest competitor for the ultimate triathlon crown. He is a multiple IRONMAN champion and winner of the ITU Long Distance World Championships 2017. Maybe there is no one in the business who loves breaking boundaries like the Canadian Powerhouse. He developes the form for his victories with infamously hard training sessions, where he goes right to the limit and above. A perfect challenger for Jan.

Mission

Jan and Lionel both excel in head-to-head races. They are also constantly looking for challenges to push themselves and the limits of what is possible. During a time when opportunities for racing are scarce, they wanted to create something memorable. What at first was a quick and crazy idea quickly spiraled into what is now known as the Tri Battle Royale.

On July 18, they will race head-to-head in a fun and fast duel on the roads of southern Germany to settle the score on who is the fastest. And just maybe set a new world record for a full distance triathlon in the process.

The Course

Located in beautiful Allgäu on the foot of the German Alps, the playground for the Tri Battle Royale will be a fast and scenic 226km full distance, real world triathlon. The region is rich in triathlon history and home to some of the best roads in Europe. Roads that will play their part on July 18 when Jan and Lionel battle it out to push for the ultimate victory.

Distance

3,8 km

Crystal clear waters, constantly fuelled by fresh water from the surrounding mountains, the Großer Alpsee in Immenstadt is the perfect opener for a fast day at the office. The competitors will take on a four-lap course with soft corners and guiding ropes under water, to keep them on track for a fast swim split.

Distance

180 km

The Bike leg is the heart of the Tri Battle Royale. After Jan and Lionel complete the swim, they switch to their time trial bikes on the shores of the lake. The first kilometres lead them through the mountain town and then straight onto the fast and smooth B19. The fully closed five-lap course is straight as runaway with extra wide turnarounds for maximum speed. Shielded from the wind by the alpine terrain, Jan and Lionel will hammer through the picturesque Allgäu valley for four hours and ultimately into transition two.

Distance

42.2km

After what is expected to be a blisteringly fast bike leg, the final dance takes place on a 10.55km run loop around the mountain town of Burgberg. As with the first two disciplines, there will be no pace making, except for the pain Jan and Lionel inflict on one another. The run course has close to zero metres in elevation gain and will conclude with a finish line in front of stunning views of the south Bavarian mountains. After a full marathon, the Tri Battle Royale will have determined its winner. To come out on top, it will possibly require one of the fastest times ever recorded for a full distance triathlon.
