Triathlon! A Tribute to the World’s Greatest Triathletes, Races and Gear

By Matthew Baird
Quarto, $40,

Read it: For a coffee table-worthy collection of profiles on the sport’s top athletes (both past and present), photos and stories from the best races around the globe and a guide to the evolution of triathlon technology and gear.

Snapshot: “Triathlon may have a short history compared to its single-discipline components of swim, bike and run, but the sport has already packed a treasure trove of iconic moments, athletes, races and kit into its four-decade lifespan. It reached its 40th birthday in 2014, and we felt now was the time to celebrate triathlon in all its grueling, gritty and grandstanding glory.”
