Dragons Annual Tour 25-28 September - Thanyapura Phuket

posted 29 Jul 2015, 01:23 by HK Dragons Triathlon Club

It is here, the long awaited annual Dragons tour. This year we have decided to take a slightly different tilt and build in some specific triathlon training and not just let the cyclists have all the fun (though if all you want to do is cycle, you can do that too!).


The dates for the diary are 25-28 September (which includes the long weekend) where we will fly to sunny Phuket and under the expert tutelage of the Thanyapura crew, you can get the best training under some of the best athletes in Asia.

And with the big triathlon and cycling races coming up, this will be perfect timing to hone your skills and your fitness before the race.

Costs for the 3 days, which of course includes full board and lodging will be THB12,000 for a Garden wing twin share room or THB13,800 for the Pool wing if you are joining the Triathlon group. If you are with the Cycling group the cost will be 11,400 and 13,200 respectively. This will include pickup and drop off to the airport

To get you interested, if you a doing the triathlon camp your itinerary will look like this

Saturday
Morning – one hour race specific swim session then join the cyclists for the TT session described below                                                       

Afternoon – Recovery but the entire sports complex including classes such as yoga, pilates etc are at your disposal at no additional cost

Sunday
Morning – Long ride (The Bakery loop attached below is 110km)                

Afternoon – Open Water swim

Monday
Morning (before breakfast) – Run session including hill repeats around the rubber plantation

Morning (after breakfast) – either Swim technique session or Bike FTP testing which will give you training zones based on power, cadence and Heart rate!

But if you just want to ride your bike

Saturday
Morning - TT session (5 km individual efforts and 10km Team efforts)

Afternoon – 2 hr Computrainer session that will be customised for our group

Sunday
Morning – Long ride (The Big Bakery loop attached below is 175km)

Afternoon – Recovery but the entire sports complex including classes such as yoga, pilates, etc are at your disposal at no additional cost

Monday
Morning – FTP testing which will give you training zones based on power, cadence and Heart rate!

Unfortunately as this is a long weekend we have been unable to secure a group flight but Thai Airways, Dragonair and Air Asia are your best options however flights are filling fast so don’t delay. You will need to get in Friday night and book a flight home after lunch on Monday.

I want to do this, what do I do now?

1. Tell you boss you have important business in Phuket and may have to leave early on Friday September 25

2. Book your flight immediately

3. Fill in the google doc here with your flight details and whether you want to do the Triathlon camp or the Cycling camp

4. Get excited      

We need definite numbers by August 7 to confirm with Thanyapura so we need you to get cracking on this to come along, get fit, have a beer (or 3) and smash those races after your best preparation yet!
