Tuesday 25 Aug 2015 [Triathlon News]

Really so happy to get the win here in Bintan. I've had a great run here with a second in 2013 over full distance, a win last year over the full distance and now a win over the half distance. I love the non wetsuit swim, the hilly bike course and the heat and the humidity. It is also always such a great experience to race here. Beautiful of course but such friendly people, such a nice atmosphere of friendliness, and riding around the island through the villages is a great experience with the che more

TriEqual on start times for Pro Women at the 70.3 World Championships

Friday 28 Aug 2015 Admin
TriEqual Media | Pic Delly Carr Planned start times for the 70.3 World Championships to be held in Zell am See, Austria this weekend are unacceptable and fail to provide a fair race course for professional women. Current plans are to start the pro women three minutes after the pro men with the first age group wave (M35-39) ten minutes later. In this scenario, strong female swimmers will catch pro men, and also pro women will be overtaken by the fastest age group men on the bike. These factors make it impossible for the pro women to have a fair World Championship event. TriEqual advocates that the professional women deserve the same fair and unobstructed course that is available to the professional men. Jodie Swallow, one of the favorites in the women’s race, said: “This is really worrying not least about the fact the races fairness comes into question but also because the pro women have asked for such considerations so many times. This is not a new concept – there...

Full Circle

Thursday 27 Aug 2015 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
How many full circle moments do you get in life?  Or how many do you get that make such a profound impact it changes your entire perception on life?  I can't imagine that we get that many, so when one comes I try to hold on to it for as long as I can, truly relishing its impact.A few weeks ago I finally had my first race guiding Patricia, and it was everything it was cracked up to be, and then some.  I have to pinch myself that this amazing opportunity just sort of fell in my lap (to read more check out coeursports.com). I expected this weekend to be an incredible experience, but it turned into so much more for reasons I could have never anticipated. In order for me to really explain, I am going to have to go back a bit.I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq on 1 Jan 2004 (Happy New Year!). As the first reinforcement unit in for Operation Iraqi Freedom 2, we had to get used to the idea that we would be a sustaining force in Iraq. What this meant was that this would not be a quick...

#TBT The story of my first XTERRA

Thursday 27 Aug 2015 Conrad
conrad stoltz caveman xterra richmond 2001 river crossing [This is a #TBT repost from 2007] My first XTERRA. 2001, Richmond, Virginia. On a borrowed bike. Yes, that is a Speedo, and that is a jogging Camel Back! My XTERRA start: After racing professional road triathlons for 10 years, and really focusing on the Sydney Olympics in 2000, I decided to try XTERRA triathlons for fun, so in 2001 I came over to the US mainly to race road tris. I was completely unprepared for mountain biking. So for XTERRAs I traveled with my helmet, a 2nd hand pair of MTB shoes, old MTB pedals and a pair of yellow Michelin Python tires. The rest of the bike I would borrow at the race venue. Or sometimes a week before. Like this 35lbs beauty with cutting edge suspension above…. 2001 Winning Chicago Mrs Ts Triathlon. Borrowed everything. I raced Olympic distance non drafting road, ITU draft legal and XTERRA till 2004. That year I won the XTERRA USA Series and most of the XTERRAs I did. Also 6 of the 8 road triathlons. Including the legendary Mrs. Ts Chicago Tri with...
