YURIY RYASHKO - 11/04/2020

The IRONMAN VR World Tour is a five-week long series that takes athletes on a virtual journey to explore the global portfolio of IRONMAN's live events and celebrate our community of athletes from all over the world.

Traveling and exploring new places is a great experience, though it’s not always possible to travel the world, especially in these times! Even with these challenges, IRONMAN together with ROUVY, takes you across Europe, The Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania. We welcome athletes of all levels to experience the iconic locations which play host to IRONMAN’s most popular and prestigious events.

Whether competing in an IRONMAN VR event or just cruising on a recovery ride, you now have the unique opportunity to virtually travel to five stunning race locations around the globe, and enjoy elements of some of the most coveted locations the sport has to offer. ROUVY’s augmented technology makes your presence real, allowing for the custom group rides or races on any chosen course.
