Welcome to first of a new video series featuring two of triathlon’s top analysts.

This weekend they aim their target straight at the series opener in Auckland, discussing the tricky course - with three hills in each of the eight laps on the 40km bike, and which athletes are primed to attack for the podium on Saturday.
