Why I Resigned from the Women For Tri Board

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Hillarybiscay
Over a week ago now, I made the disappointing decision to resign from the Women for Tri board. This was not a decision that I took lightly, as when I commit to something, I have every intention of following through. But in this instance, ultimately I had to make the call to cut my losses. Time is my most precious resource and I was willing to donate a significant amount of it to this project if it meant working on a project that would leave our sport better, particularly for the women in it. I love ironman. So much so that ironman completely changed the trajectory of my career, and in turn, my life. And I do not want to see everything that made me fall in love with this sport 14 years ago slowly fade away. As the only professional triathlete on the board and a coach of up-and-coming professional female triathletes, I felt a great responsibility to look out for this group. Unfortunately, I realized very quickly that my intentions would be much better served and time better spent...

XTERRA Rotorua in New Zealand- 2014 highlight video.

XTERRA Rotorua 2014

Repost of “The magic of XTERRA New Zealand” from 2014

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Conrad
Conrad Stoltz Caveman XTERRA New Zealand Rotorua hoka one one rapa nui, Specialized, suunto, clif bar, Caveman wins XTERRA New Zealand. I cant believe that after 22 years of pro racing this was only my 2nd race in NZ. Last time was ITU World Cup in Auckland in 1995 or 96. Draft legal road triathlon. After a rocky start to 2014 (2 punctures in 2 races, a biomechanical at XTERRA South Africa, a random injury, and some minor health issues- eye & skin cancer surgeries) its good to finally get the monkey off my back with a good win in Rotorua. What a phenomenal course and venue! Beautiful blue lake called “Blue lake” surrounded by green mountains covered with dense tree fern growth 20ft tall. I was out the swim in 5th or 6th, about 35” behind some Kiwi roadie, followed by Roger Serrano (ESP) and Ben Allen (Aus). After a fair bit of climbing Ben and I filed into Billy T neck in neck- some of the very best and unique single track I’ve ever ridden. Rain showers over the last few days added some extra fun and games and I couldnt wipe the smile off my face. This is the adventure and...

Stay Cool and Staying Aero

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Tim
RDodson__IronManMelb15_035 I’ll be talking more about the importance of aero and the things I try and do to ensure I have the edge over my opponents in the coming weeks. Being aerodynamically optimal needs to take into consideration your position and equipment, but also factors like comfort and hydration. Another one of these factors for racing is thermoregulation, something which was vitally important in my recent trip to Ironman Melbourne. Anyone that was at Ironman Melbourne can attest to the extremes in temperatures seen throughout the day. It was single digits when we started in Frankston, and low 30’s (approx 90f) when I crossed the finish line. It was ridiculously hot at some stages. One of the great things about my Scody Optimise AIR tri suit is that as much as it is aero, it is probably the most cooling suit I have ever worn. The sleeves provide added sun protection, and the fabric retains a very small amount of moisture to help cool me down. With this in mind, I do have some tips for everyone...

Western States 100

Thursday 19 Jul 2012 Tyler
                  Western States 100 was a journey unlike any other I had ever taken.  I started out with a goal of qualifying and finishing under 20 hours and made that well known but several bumps along the way made some of those goals change.  Goals are easy [...]

Embracing the Unknown in 2012

Tuesday 03 Jan 2012 Tyler
2011 was far from what I would have ever expected. It was a year of success, failure and utter loss. I still sit back almost every day and reflect on what this year has taught me, made me think about and made me want to change. The loss of my stepdad the day after racing [...]

The end of the journey…

Monday 10 Oct 2011 Tyler
It’s time for 2011 to come to a close.  I am not one to complain but this year has been one I could have lived without.  Much like the way I started my season in April at Texas 70.3, I ended it at Kona with an empty tank.  I don’t want anyone to feel sorry [...]

A Season Full of Lessons…

Monday 03 Oct 2011 Tyler
What I love about triathlon and training and racing in general is how much there is to learn. Every time I go out for a key session or a race, I come back with more knowledge then when I left. So as I’m sitting here procrastinating when I should be finishing my final packing for [...]

Tyler Stewart Prepares for Kona

Friday 26 Aug 2011 Tyler
If her performance last weekend was any indication, Tyler Stewart will be a serious threat at the Ironman World Championships in Kona. Tyler won the Lake Stevens 70.3 on August 14, finishing with the fastest bike and run splits, a victory made sweeter by the fact that a year ago at Lake Stevens, she came [...]

Winning Isn’t Everything

Friday 26 Aug 2011 Tyler
                  We’ve all heard the phrase “Winning isn’t everything” a million times but never did it have more profound meaning for me than last week at Lake Steven 70.3. I’ll start by saying this is not a typical race report – one in which I recount the [...]

All in! Ironman Lake Placid

Tuesday 16 Aug 2011 Tyler
The theme of my year has been “all in for Kona” which quite simply means that I structured my year around not only qualifying for Kona but working with my coach, my family and my sponsors to be best prepared to have a great race in Kona. It’s hard to believe this is my 5th [...]

One Tough Cookie

Your race or mine?

Tuesday 16 Aug 2011 Tyler

Race Report: Ironman Melbourne

Friday 28 Mar 2014 Admin
It’s hard to believe that IM Melbourne is now done and I sit on the other side of the globe reflecting on the day that was my second IM event. IM Melbourne had been the sole focus of the past four months training and, although not entirely satisfied with my 8th place, I can certainly draw some positives from the race and past several months of training. Race day dawned with overcast skies and little to no wind leaving the bay within which the swim is held relatively smooth. After a great start off the beach I settled into the back of the front pack as we turned the first buoy at 850m. I felt really good heading out to that turn can, and without it sounding like purely a sales pitch, I can genuinely say my ROKA wetsuit is super comfortable, unrestrictive and just feels right in the water. I am really happy that I get to swim in this wetsuit when wetsuits are legal. Throughout the remaining two thirds of the swim there were a couple of surges which stretched the group a little but...

Kempy sees off strong field to win Geelong Long Course

Sunday 10 Feb 2013 PR
Kempy backed up his sensational start to the season by being crowned Australian Champion at the Urban Geelong Long Course race. Just two weeks after his scintillating win at the Asia-Pacific Ironman 70.3 Championships in Auckland, Kempy saw off one of the finest ever fields assembled at this distance in Australia. Clayton Fettell led out of the water, followed into T1 by Kempy and a group that contained young gun James Hodge and former Olympian Brad Kahlefeldt. A lead group of five stayed together on the bike, with Hodge first out of T2, but some brilliant running from Kempy had him 15 secs up after the first lap of the run, which stretched out to 30 seconds as he crossed the line first, ahead of Luke Bell and Hodge. Leon Griffin and Fettell rounded out the top 5. Watch Kempy’s post race interview, courtesy of firstoffthebike.com    

Spring’s Here

Wednesday 25 Mar 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
As the sun sets on the winter it is time to transition from logging hours to logging intensity. It is time to put away the heavy coats and thick layers and take out the rain jackets and lighter weight jackets. All winter thus far has been binary type training, it’s either been steady base training or rest and recovery. With the changing of the seasons it is time to go from that “binary” training to finding some gears in that body. It is time to define & remind the body of LT, AT, VO2, zones, and all those other acronyms that are little tools in helping us to our dreams later in the season. It is time to throw a little fuel in the fire and achieve new heights this year. I look forward to going through the same struggles as you all as we build back into shape. The falls, the bad days, weathering the storms of life, and reaching some awesome finish line’s together…I better get their first! Fighting to Win & Punish, Andrew The post...

Brand Loyalty

Wednesday 21 Jan 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
STA-091 “Become more valuable to them then they are to you.” ~Tom Schuler I have always had a deep appreciation for sponsorships because these companies are taking money out of their bottom line to support you. When you enter into a sponsorship, you are more than just another employee, but you are the face of the company. Growing up around a family business you know how important each customer is and one satisfied customer often brings in one or two friends and that is how business grows. Sponsorship is no different, if you are good to your sponsors they will connect you with other reputable sponsors to help grow your brand. Now in my 10th season racing at the professional level I have got to experience a lot of great sponsorships, a few deals that didn’t last long enough, and a few really bad deals. I have had employees of some of my sponsors send me messages randomly just to check and see how training is going, let me know how great a performance was, and ask what’s...

Changing it up

Wednesday 14 Jan 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
bike I frequently get asked about bicycle and human geometry on the bike.  So many people feel that they can make large gains with respect to positioning and want to try something new but they just do not know what to change.  The age old mindset is: you will be more aero if you drop the front, lower your aero bars, but this comes at the cost of cutting down your Q angle (which is the angle between your femur at the top of the pedal stroke and your torso).  This works if you have become more flexible, increased your core (especially lower back) strength, or feel that blood flow to your legs is not that important.  If you are comfortable with your geometry and you do not feel that cutting your Q angle will be a benefit but know a geometry change could make you faster then read on.  Rapp is having palpitations already. Let me start off with this is not a one size fits all situation.  78 and 80 degree seat tube angles just do not work for everybody.  I ride a 76.5 degree seat tube angle...

Riding legendary Stellenbosch G-Spot trail with Euro XTERRA friends

Tuesday 24 Mar 2015 Conrad
Riding G-spot Stellenbosch with Roger Serrano, Jim Thijs , conrad Stoltz & friends   The day after a rather depressing XTERRA Grabouw for me personally, Theo and I showed a gaggle of European XTERRA athletes the wonders of Stellenbosch mountain biking… Above is an edit by Spanish pro and upcoming star,  Roger Serrano. Jim Thijs is very excited to get to the “Down HERE” part! Climbing up G-Spot in Stellenbosch on a scorching February day. Once much fun was had and legs were truly tired, we hit Ride In for late breakfast and early beer. Thanks  Jim Thijs, Roger Serrano, Theo Bilgnaut, Louise Fox, Jan Pyott, Carina Wastle and Micheal for the fun times. More good times next year!  

I AM . . .

Monday 23 Mar 2015 Hillarybiscay
5Q tees @50WomenToKona Because equality. Because our professional ironwomen deserve a fighting chance to make careers in this sport. What I am excited to share today is that I am fortunate to have a business partner and SMASH Team who are as passionate about this cause as we are. So this happened: These black 5Q #50WOMENTOKONA tanks & tees make a bold neon pink statement in support of equality for female athletes. We made these tees because we feel strongly that women should have equal representation at world championship races, and want people to have the chance to show their support for this cause. We believe that having these 50 spots, like the male pros do, is a crucial part of creating equal opportunity for women in our sport, and for professional women to make a career in triathlon. To further this goal, SMASH will contribute all profits from the sale of these tees to a Kona-travel fund for the woman in the final Kona-qualifying spot this year. We hope that this final spot is...

Pursue Your Potential - Should You Go Pro?

Monday 23 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
Training with younger athletes reminds me of my own struggle to find my way in sport early in my career (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth).  I remember balancing a zero budget, university studies, international travel and worried parents with my intense desire to progress in the sport.  Looking back, I never expected my career to follow the path it has. I love being around young athletes and I am constantly encouraging them to have the courage to follow their dreams, no matter how intimidating that seems.    The few athletes that make it to the top rise out of the ranks of beginners just as everyone else.  There are a handful of athletes with outstanding success in the sport and many more with moderate to limited success.  Challenging yourself to pursue the highest level in triathlon requires a considerable conviction, determination and resilience.  It also requires sacrifice including financial hardship, postponing education, postponing other...

IM Melbourne – Great Result…But A Tough Day At The Office

Monday 23 Mar 2015 Tim
KVKF-TVBbikeorange copy Yesterday was an epic day in Melbourne. It’s funny in this triathlon game. Some days you go out to race and as hard and painful as it is, you feel good. Mentally, you’re in the zone and the race just flows. Sometimes though, it’s just a tough day at the office. And that’s certainly how things went down for me at IM Melbourne. Here’s how the race for the Asia-Pacific Championship unfolded… Swim It was a nippy start down at the Frankston pier- about 12 degrees, but felt a little colder with the wind. Thank goodness the water temp in Port Phillip Bay is still up a bit. I had a good start, stuck with the front group and didn’t let off, but started to sting pretty early on in the swim. Something wasn’t quite right with my back and that kept going all day. The back end of the swim was tough. As always, my aim was to stick with the front group in the swim, but we ended up in single file and pretty stretched out. I came in at 48:06. Congrats to Marko Albert, who broke the course swim record by...

Weeks #9-12. The Move, The Funeral, The Flu :(

Sunday 22 Mar 2015 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
Lucky you, today you get a special "4 for the price of 1" blog update! We have had a lot going on the last 4 weeks, so much so that the training--and thus the blogging--has been sparse as-all-get-out. (Did I use that phrase right?) Week #9. Last week in Bethesda = no work = all packing + one last run club! Actually, run club was the only workout I did all week. 5 miles of running, plus lots

Brett Sutton Explains The Chopping Board Paddles

Photo: Trisutto.comTriathlon coach Brett Sutton explains the use of the non-traditional “chopping board paddles.” This article originally appeared at Trisutto.com. The humble chopping board has long taken pride of place in the swim toolkit of many successful swimmers. They are used specifically in improving our athletes who use a two-beat kick, bilateral breathing technique. The absolute relevance of these paddles doesn’t come from my imagination, but from countless hours spent watching films of swimmers taken at the Valley Pool so many years ago. The pool had an underwater window where athletes were filmed using every type of swim equipment, noting every variant that came from a certain paddle or flipper (or fins for US readers). The difference to stroke that a simple, small differential on a paddle would make was enormous. Just as different flipper...

Why I Resigned from the Women For Tri Board

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Hillarybiscay
Over a week ago now, I made the disappointing decision to resign from the Women for Tri board. This was not a decision that I took lightly, as when I commit to something, I have every intention of following through. But in this instance, ultimately I had to make the call to cut my losses. Time is my most precious resource and I was willing to donate a significant amount of it to this project if it meant working on a project that would leave our sport better, particularly for the women in it. I love ironman. So much so that ironman completely changed the trajectory of my career, and in turn, my life. And I do not want to see everything that made me fall in love with this sport 14 years ago slowly fade away. As the only professional triathlete on the board and a coach of up-and-coming professional female triathletes, I felt a great responsibility to look out for this group. Unfortunately, I realized very quickly that my intentions would be much better served and time better spent...

Repost of “The magic of XTERRA New Zealand” from 2014

Conrad Stoltz Caveman XTERRA New Zealand Rotorua hoka one one rapa nui, Specialized, suunto, clif bar, Caveman wins XTERRA New Zealand. I cant believe that after 22 years of pro racing this was only my 2nd race in NZ. Last time was ITU World Cup in Auckland in 1995 or 96. Draft legal road triathlon. After a rocky start to 2014 (2 punctures in 2 races, a biomechanical at XTERRA South Africa, a random injury, and some minor health issues- eye & skin cancer surgeries) its good to finally get the monkey off my back with a good win in Rotorua. What a phenomenal course and venue! Beautiful blue lake called “Blue lake” surrounded by green mountains covered with dense tree fern growth 20ft tall. I was out the swim in 5th or 6th, about 35” behind some Kiwi roadie, followed by Roger Serrano (ESP) and Ben Allen (Aus). After a fair bit of climbing Ben and I filed into Billy T neck in neck- some of the very best and unique single track I’ve ever ridden. Rain showers over the last few days added some extra fun and games and I couldnt wipe the smile off my face. This is the adventure and...

Stay Cool and Staying Aero

Friday 27 Mar 2015 Tim
RDodson__IronManMelb15_035 I’ll be talking more about the importance of aero and the things I try and do to ensure I have the edge over my opponents in the coming weeks. Being aerodynamically optimal needs to take into consideration your position and equipment, but also factors like comfort and hydration. Another one of these factors for racing is thermoregulation, something which was vitally important in my recent trip to Ironman Melbourne. Anyone that was at Ironman Melbourne can attest to the extremes in temperatures seen throughout the day. It was single digits when we started in Frankston, and low 30’s (approx 90f) when I crossed the finish line. It was ridiculously hot at some stages. One of the great things about my Scody Optimise AIR tri suit is that as much as it is aero, it is probably the most cooling suit I have ever worn. The sleeves provide added sun protection, and the fabric retains a very small amount of moisture to help cool me down. With this in mind, I do have some tips for everyone...
