Go behind the scenes of one of the most exciting cover shoots in the history of Triathlete magazine with this time lapse video from photo editor Nils Nilsen. The November edition of the magazine marks the relaunch of Triathlete and features eight of the top contenders for October ninth’s Ironman World Championship. Featured athletes include Chrissie Wellington, Eneko Llanos, Craig Alexander, Mirinda Carfrae, Julie Dibens, Andy Potts, Dirk Bockel and Samantha McGlone.
The time lapse video features a sequence of roughly 1800 photos taken over the course of nearly eight hours. The “Center Stage” themed cover was shot in Boulder, Colo. at the Macky Stadium on the campus of the University of Colorado. The staff set up a camera that went off every ten seconds to provide you with this unique look at the cover shoot.
