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 ....

TW wrote (see)

 they know there'll be hurdles,

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

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 ...

i'm pleased to see baldy's are represented (speaking as sparsely haired person)

Kanga - No gimmick, I'm experiencing it all, except the sore nipples (so far). But thank you for the not unattractive comment .
