12 months after breaking his neck, @tri_thedon returns to Kona this week for the @ironmantri World Championships to complete his personal journey back to the pinnacle of his sport. Here he speaks about the emotions he will feel on Ali’i drive finishing this year’s race. #OneObsession#IMWC#IMKona
Starting in the heart of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and the blast zone for the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, this year’s edition of @transcascadia featured long and winding – sometimes eroding – access roads taking racers through views of the volcano and the remnants of its destruction that is still evident today as they arrived.
The location of the event provided a unique opportunity for #TeamOakley athletes and influencers to test, validate and observe performance eyewear, goggles, #PRIZM technology & helmets in the field. In addition to the plethora of Oakley products on display, countless riders visited the Oakley “Sky Box” at Base Camp for daily support before and after the stages.
*Special thanks to @modussportgroup for having us at all of the work parties and the event itself.
