Originally a competitive downhill skier then road cyclist, Canadian Trevor Wurtele has come into triathlon form in recent years with breakthrough wins at the 2012 Ironman 70.3 New Orleans and 2013 Ironman Canada. He has been a consistent top-five finisher since 2012 and has improved his swim to become a front-pack swimmer. He and his wife Heather—a six-time Ironman champion and 11-time 70.3 champion—make up Team Wurtele, and the triathlon power couple travels around North America following the long-course circuits while living out of an RV. Wurtele gave us a glimpse at the gear behind his success.
