Now in its fifth year, the SWISSMAN Xtreme Triathlon ( is an iron-distance challenge for those for whom simply covering the distance is not enough.

As well as hills, more hills and then plenty of mountains, this is an event that comes with stunning scenery.

The men’s race was won by Alain Freidrich (SUI). If that names sounds familiar, that is because he wears the colours of and represents the UK-based Team Freespeed.
