A couple of months after announcing he will no longer compete at the Ironman World Championship, two-time Ironman World Champion Tim DeBoom is preparing to take on the toughest triathlon on the planet, the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon.
The 2011 Norseman Xtreme Triathlon will take place in Norway on Saturday, August 6th. The iron-distance race is made up of a point-to-point course that takes athletes on a 5,000 feet ascent through Norway. The current male record holder is Bjorn Andersson of Sweden. He hit a snowstorm on one of the mountains, but still finished at 10:30 in 2005.
The race is limited to 240 participants and does not feature prize money.
