I’ve been using TrainerRoad to build up to my first overseas race, the Mallorca 70.3 Half Ironman.
Previously I have simply raced in the UK on a very cheap bike, so a combined self-insurance/reliance on the NHS has worked well, not that I’ve needed either!
However, racing overseas raises the question of medical cover, as I believe most travel insurance does not cover accidents incurred from racing. As I’m not a member of the BTF, Ironman note I must purchase a day licence on the day (EUR22), however nowhere can I seem to find any info on exactly what this covers me for? I assume there’s no bike insurance on that and that’s ok, but I would be keen to know what medical insurance (if any) that day licence provides - hospital treatment, repatriation (gulp)? I have reached out to Ironman and they have as yet not responded to me.
Does anyone have any experience/tips here - just want to make sure I’m fully covered for the worst case scenario.
