Why we travel with the team

Travelling with HOT Events allows athletes to focus on their race, minimizing the stresses that can sometimes accompany travelling. The team hotel(s) help strengthen the team kiwi feel, making group trainings and excursions fun and a breeze!
— Jen Gregory – Triathlon NZ Age Group Experience Manager
Over the years I have been to many ITU world Championship events, some of these are in cities where the only transport worry is whether your bike is on your flight, the next flight, or the flight after that. Others are in resorts where the smallness is part of the attraction. One such was 2016 on Cozumel Island Mexico. Transport involved not just planes but also buses, ferries, taxi vans and last but not least, pedal carts. It was reassuring to have the HOT representative and their Spanish speaking local agent on hand at every trans-shipment point to make sure the team, and more importantly their bikes, kept together for the somewhat complicated journey.
— Garth Barfoot – Age Group Competitor
