It is much more than a passion and a sporting event. It is a rite, almost a liturgy. After a year of absence, the great triathlon resumes the scene at the Idroscalo with two days of sport that promises adrenaline, entertainment and lots of fun. In the “sea of the Milanese” returns the Deejay Tri, the event wanted and conceived by Dj Linus. The competition, in its fourth edition, will be held in full compliance with the anti-Covid protocols. “I must say that it excites us particularly – begins Massimiliano Rovatti of Trio Events, organizer of the event – finally returning to the Idroscalo. The distance from the impossible appointment for the Italian triathletes is even more motivating”.
It starts today at 12.30, with the Super Sprint (450 meters swimming, 10 kilometers by bicycle, 2.5 kilometers of running), short distances accessible to many, while from 14 there will be the Olympic distance (1,500 meters swimming, 40 kilometers by bike, 10 kilometers of running). On Sunday from 10 the Sprint triathlon starts (750 meters, 20 kilometers, 5 kilometers). “Enrollments went beyond expectations: in the Olympic we reached the record with 1,000 subscribers – continues Rovatti -. Despite Covid, the Milanese rewarded us. Of course, all protocols will be respected: masks, temperature measurement, contingent entrances and departures staggered “. The spirit of the Deejay Tri has always been to be a party, a moment to live and share as a family, with the sporting part at the window; but the Coronavirus has upset everything and, especially for this year, the purpose of the competition will be focused on the competitive part: “Unfortunately, the race is aimed only at competitive members because it is a competition of national interest for the Federation (Fitri ed). this we had to sacrifice competitions for the little ones, in addition to the relays. The Deejay Tri has always been organized with the family at the center. It is a disappointment especially for the younger ones: training all winter indoors and then arriving now, in the period of competitions, without having the goal of the race, makes you lose motivation “.
For the participants it will be a unique opportunity to rediscover the sea of the Milanese: “I know the Idroscalo very well and for beginners it is excellent because the water in the basin is flat for swimming, without waves; in short, it is ideal for those who has recently started. Even the bike and running routes are flat, without slopes, and do not present major difficulties. Furthermore, being in the middle of the green and without houses, it is possible to create a race route that does not present the given criticalities. from the city – he concludes -. Finally, the flooring has been completely redone and the glance for the running and cycling part will be remarkable “.
