5 Thoughts From Jesse Thomas’ Five-Peat At Wildflower

Thomas celebrates his fifth Wildflower victory. Photo: Rocky ArroyoJesse Thomas took his fifth victory in a row at the Wildflower Long Course Triathlon on Saturday. We chatted with Thomas about his five-peat experience. (Be sure to check out his race report about his day too.) Triathlete.com: You mentioned in your blog that you would prefer winning every race in the last mile instead of being out front for so long. What didn’t you like about leading? Thomas: “In a race like that, it’s so hard because you can’t focus anywhere but backwards when you’re in the lead. Before I took the lead on the bike—which I’ve only had on a couple races in my career—I was hurting, but I had these dots out in front me. I thought, ‘Keep your head down, keep reeling them in.’ Then you have the lead and you think, ‘What if I cramp? What if I flat? What if my water bottle flies off?’ and all the sudden your mindset flips to all these other things.” “And that’s all I could think about during the run—‘oh man,...

Ode to My MoCo Eagles, a North Face relay report

So this isn't really a "race report" as I don't think any of us considered it a real race. I personally have a bad track record in staying upright during trail races (#klutz) so I try not to go too fast or I trip over myself. In the week leading up to the race, Chris mentioned something about a bum foot, and the day before supercouple Team Lim mentioned that Kerry had been really sick, and

Chilled to the bone in Busselton

Sunday 03 May 2015 Tim
raceimagefinal For those of you who were concerned after reading my tweet following Busselton 70.3 on Saturday – it’s all good… tits are still attached. Ego is bruised, back is still sore when I bend down and I’m feeling very disappointed about my result. I’ll keep this race report short and sweet. Rough day today @im703busso froze my tits off and still suffering with a sore back. Onwards and upwards. — Tim Van Berkel (@TimBerkel) May 2, 2015 A Frosty Start We lined up for the start of the swim at Geographe Bay and the temperature registered 3 degrees. Apparent temp was actually closer to zero. That’s bloody cold! Having said that, I had a great swim. Back felt okay, I stayed in the front group, sticking right on Sticksy’s heels, and came out of the water in 24:53. I hit T1 and as soon as I took my wetsuit off, I got really cold. Jumped on the bike and as I headed out onto the course I felt like I was riding like an old man. Wasn’t actually doing too badly, but by the 67km mark I was...

Texas 703: Work with What You Got

Friday 01 May 2015 Admin
kelly and sandy muscles …or more eloquently stated by Theodore Roosevelt: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” One of the great things about the sport of triathlon is that we all have a strength and a weakness; and given that we train for three disciplines, there is always something to improve upon. No matter what level you get to, or how many races you have done, this continues to ring true. Yet I’ve also learned along the way that you have to play to your strengths. More than anything, accepting a weakness can be a mental battle; but as we all know, a large portion of what we do in life is driven by attitude and our mentality; which is dictated by our choosing. I went into Texas 70.3 ready for a good hard effort. I heard rumors floating around that ‘many pros came into this race not rested, amidst their large training block for Ironman Texas’. I was not one of them. Sure, I had done some big training in April, but I came into this race rested. I’ve learned that each time I step on a start...

Rivet TT – The New Helmet On The Block

Friday 01 May 2015 Tim
2015_Giant_Rivet_TT_Black Scone. Nut. Noodle. Block. You’ve got to love Aussie slang. Where else would you find so many colourful terms to describe your head? I’m racing the Busselton 70.3 today and if you look carefully you’ll notice that I’m rocking a different brain-bucket. A brand new, hi-tech helmet from Giant is going to be protecting my melon on the course today. It’s called the Rivet TT and it’s a pretty impressive piece of gear. All jokes aside, Giant have spent a great deal of time and money to develop their most aerodynamic and comfortable helmet yet. They’ve tuned it using a process called Computational Fluid Dynamics and tested it extensively in the wind tunnel and in real-life, on the skulls of the Team-Giant-Alpecin pros. From the strategically placed dimples on the top of the helmet, to improve laminar flow, to the ‘drag-neutral’ ports and internal-channels, which make up the cooling system, it’s designed for speed and comfort. And not just to benefit the pros. The design was created to work...

Challenge Philippines – Tough Racing, Open Arms

Saturday 28 Feb 2015 Admin
Zoot Felt Signing I’m a bit of a control freak. I like to eliminate the potential of added stress and I prefer that things flow as smoothly as possible. This is a large reason why I often choose races that are close by or, if not close in location, simple to travel to. I guess this isn’t anything to be ashamed of, as I view racing as a “job”; hence I consider the cost/benefit analysis before choosing events. But I have to admit, it felt kind of good to opt in for Challenge Philippines less than 6 weeks before the event; to embrace the adventure of it all, and to realize that yes while this is a job, there can also be a little room for adventure; and it isn’t a bad thing to ease your grip on control every so often. This event was a first in a few ways; first Challenge race, but also our first time traveling to Southeast Asia. The opportunity came up somewhat last minute, and I decided why the hell not…being so early in the year, I figured it may be smaller event,...

Let Go to Move Ahead

Monday 09 Feb 2015 Admin
Thinking Pre Race 2 Happiness in the present is shattered only by comparison with the past. (Douglas Horton) With the opportunity to race in the Philippines in just 2 weeks, on a reputably tough course, a small fire has been lit under me to kick things into gear. I’ve found a bit of extra motivation to get back to the routine. Despite it being an early season race, I don’t want to go in underprepared and I’d prefer not to get it handed to me; just doesn’t seem like a fun way to start the season. After a short run focus over the holidays, I knew it was time to get back on the bike; suffice to say I took a good bit of time away from cycling in December. One thing that type A triathletes are good at is routine. ‘Tell me what to do, and I’ll do it, coach’. There isn’t a lot of thrill and excitement about going back and forth in a pool over a black line hundreds of times, or pedaling your legs in circles for hours on end. But we do it. We become creatures of habit and immune to boredom, or at the least, we...

Monday 04 May 2015 Jesse Thomas
Heyo all you handful of Wildflower wins holding crazy ass fans. Boo….yah! Win #5. It’s kind of crazy. Maybe more crazy to think that I’ve been doing this as a job for 5 years. I think that’s the longest I’ve ever done anything. And while the big deal is 5 wins in a row, it . . . → Read More: High 5 for FIVE: 2015 Wildflower Race Report

Ode to My MoCo Eagles, a North Face relay report

Monday 04 May 2015 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
So this isn't really a "race report" as I don't think any of us considered it a real race. I personally have a bad track record in staying upright during trail races (#klutz) so I try not to go too fast or I trip over myself.

Chilled to the bone in Busselton

Sunday 03 May 2015 Tim
raceimagefinal For those of you who were concerned after reading my tweet following Busselton 70.3 on Saturday – it’s all good… tits are still attached. Ego is bruised, back is still sore when I bend down and I’m feeling very disappointed about my result. I’ll keep this race report short and sweet. Rough day today @im703busso froze my tits off and still suffering with a sore back. Onwards and upwards. — Tim Van Berkel (@TimBerkel) May 2, 2015 A Frosty Start We lined up for the start of the swim at Geographe Bay and the temperature registered 3 degrees. Apparent temp was actually closer to zero. That’s bloody cold! Having said that, I had a great swim. Back felt okay, I stayed in the front group, sticking right on Sticksy’s heels, and came out of the water in 24:53. I hit T1 and as soon as I took my wetsuit off, I got really cold. Jumped on the bike and as I headed out onto the course I felt like I was riding like an old man. Wasn’t actually doing too badly, but by the 67km mark I was...
