The team will consist of celebrity triathletes Drew Arellano andMateo Guidicelli plus two more and will be coached by Noy Jopson.
The team will be composed of Coach Noy Jopson and celebrity athletes Matteo Guidicelli and Drew Arellano, with two more members to be selected via the search for the best Filipino triathletes in the Vaseline Men XTERRA Tri-Outs Camp: Race to Maui.
In the Warm-Up Challenges, members of the camp went through various swim, bike and run challenges where they learned the different techniques needed to become a better triathlete. In the Tri-Challenges, the participants were asked to do mini triathlon competitions under time pressure to test their speed. All the participants went thru at least one Warm Up Challenge and one Tri-Challenge each day during the three-day camp.
