Call me a cynic, but have the fab four been chosen by TW to appeal to their white, youngish, middle class target audience ? No OAPs, mid life crisisers or dusky skin tones here then ....
Anyway it is a sprint.........

No. No there won't. No hurdles in triathlon. I've done one.

But TW says there'll be hurdles...maybe it's a new event?!!

@Kanga - you're a cynic!
OK. Conspiracy theory time, the whole thing is a gimmick. Take a couple of pics of random not unattractive people, maybe just stock shots, hire some ghost writers, fudge the race results, and sell a few more mags. Simples. No sore nipples, training, or er, sweating, just glam glam glam. Seems to work for their cover models ...
Kanga - No gimmick, I'm experiencing it all, except the sore nipples (so far). But thank you for the not unattractive comment .
You are right KK there are no Blacks! - just observation
