No such thing as a dumb question . . .

. . . what is the significance of 220 in "220 Triathlon"?

Is it a reference to max HR i.e. 220 - age??

Thanks in advance

    That's exactly what it is... if you turn to the back on any issue of 220 mag, it's explained in a foot note on one of the last pages.

    You're not the first one that missed the small prints Andre refers to.

    We had the question here before; that's probably why I know it[;)]
