Triathletes have many things to worry about when it comes to getting to events. When surveyed on the biggest stress during race week a few years ago, Ironman competitors listed traveling with their bikes as the biggest concern. Unfortunately, a wrecked bike is just one of numerous problems that can come up during a trip – sickness, injury and other issues can derail a race or training camp.
Earlier this year we wrote about the event and bicycle coverage the Tricover program provides – providing up to $1000 in event registration coverage and up to $10,000 in trip coverage, along with between $5,000 and $20,000 of coverage on your bike and equipment (depending on the level of coverage you pick).
The Tricover program also provides extensive accident coverage that you wouldn’t normally have, or would typically have to purchase as secondary coverage, too. The extra coverage provides you coverage in case you’re disabled, provides accidental death coverage along with coverage for injuries you might sustain that will help take care of hospital-related expenses, lodging benefits and more.
While you can get this type of insurance from many different companies, the advantage of the Tricover program is you get all the benefits in one package. Now you’ve got all the different components of your trip to a camp or a race covered at once, so you don’t have to worry about a bunch of different policies to cover each component of your travel needs – the Tricover program takes care of the travel, your equipment, registration and anything else that might come up while you’re on the road.
