Matt Bottrill is a 60x UK national champion with over 500 race wins to his name. Despite holding down a full-time job and only having eight hours of training per week, his focus on efficiency in training and maximising aerodynamic performance resulted in near-total domination of the domestic time trial scene and UK time trial records over 25 and 50 miles. (The 50-mile record still stands.) He advised Victor Campenaerts for his successful Hour Record attempt in 2019. Transitioning into racing and coaching triathlon resulted in multiple age group and overall wins for himself, and cycling transformations for many triathletes including the likes of Ironman world record holder Tim Don.
The documentary showcases not only the audacious yet ultimately successful attempt to race the full distance of triathlon in under seven hours for men and under eight hours for women, but also the two-year build-up leading into the challenge following all six athletes involved.
Two-time world champion and Olympic gold medalist Kristian Blummenfelt made history today, becoming the first man to complete a full distance triathlon under seven hours.
