After his surprise early retirement from cycling, Talansky's announced on Instagram that he's moving over to Ironman.

He's apparently got backers and has a "competitive background" in swimming and running in his younger days so reading between the lines it would seem he's thinking he'll be competitive. Will be interesting given he's only 28. Particularly if he really can swim.

Well, the WTC are pretty lax with professional athletes in certain areas.

Given that his team has lost his title sponsor he might not have much choice.

I don't know much ago him but google doesn't suggest any positive tests or rumours?

Given that he spent most of his career with Slipstream, he's perhaps a bit more likely than some others to be clean.... with that team, I guess he'll have spent time for sure with David Millar as a guide, so at least he'll have had plenty of assistance in staying 'unprepared'!

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out... I can see some fantastic bike legs followed by exciting chase downs on the run coming out of it!

They got a new sponsor in the end, so the team is honouring all existing contracts.

I'm assuming this will be a significant drop in salary for him? So must be quite confident on really making it to the pointy end of tri, or other reasons why he didnt want to just cycle any more.
