Senior editor Jené Shaw attended elite coach Darren Smith’s Tridynamic age grouper camp in Morzine, France, last weekend, taking part in four jam-packed days of learning from one of the sport’s best coaches. Smith’s crew of stellar ITU athletes—including 2012 Olympic silver medalist Lisa Norden, Jodie Stimpson, Aileen Reed and more—were often training alongside the age groupers, and offered insight on what it’s like to compete at their level. You can find future Tridynamic camps on their website (more to be announced for 2015 soon), or check out Tri4theAlps for a catered training experience in the French Alps!
