The re-launch of Inside Triathlon continues to break the mold of triathlon magazines with its May/June issue, which will be available on April 21. In this issue, we delved deep into the psyche of famed competitors, controversial coaches, doping-accused athletes and awe-inspiring age groupers in order discover the deep connection between the mind and the body inside every triathlete.

Editor-in-Chief T.J. Murphy and photographer John Segesta ventured out into the Canadian backcountry to find the elusive Peter Reid in his new life as a bush pilot. What they managed to uncover about the famously secretive athlete will inspire and intrigue triathletes of all levels.

This issue’s gallery features a never-before-seen look into the teamTBB camp in Subic Bay, Philippines, giving readers the inside scoop on what these world-class athletes endure in order to become champions.

Triathlon champion Scott Molina uncovers what you’ve never been told about life as a professional triathlete, and why racing to win becomes a lot more serious when your financial wellbeing is at stake. Outside magazine contributor Brian Metzler met up with two-time Ironman Hawaii champion Normann Stadler in order to watch the German powerhouse undergo the newest innovation in bike-fitting by Boulder, Colo.-based Retul.

In an Inside Triathlon first, this month we will also be offering an excerpt from a forthcoming book on doping in the endurance sport world that is sure to have people talking. Dr. Erik Seedhouse and his wife Doina Nugent spent months compiling research on drug-testing in cycling and triathlon in order to build a case that will have you think twice before you find any endurance athlete guilty before proven innocent.
