Do the Dome?

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
bottle I started writing this as a technical document but let’s face it. I should be doing other things and so should you so I will write this more as an abstract. Over the course of the last 4 years I have been to many test facilities including A2, CMEFE, and done multiple velodrome tests regarding dome top bottles. I tested multiple bottles between the arms (BTA), down tube, seat tube, and with multiple behind the saddle single & double mounts. When the standard bottle is BTA it is in turbulent air and essentially a free nutritional storage place without an increase in drag. When adding a dome top bottle facing forward there is negligible difference when compared to a standard bottle, but when the bottle is facing rearward (dome toward the saddle) the drag was slightly lower than a forward facing dome shape bottle. Now the differences talked about above were consistent but very very small, we’re talking fractions of a Watt yet this explains why there is a business for BTA systems. On...

Challenge Batemans Bay

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Sam Appleton)
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my 2015 season. After ending last year in a disappointing way, I am really proud of myself to have turned it all around into the best form I’ve ever had. Since racing Huskisson in February I have relocated up north to Byron. I was initially going to try and settle into my new environment and not race Batemans Bay, but Tim and I decided that with two really solid weeks we could get my body into winning shape. Batemans Bay has been a happy hunting ground for me in the past, and this is the fourth year in a row I have made the sojourn south of Sydney to this beautiful coastal town. Race morning rolled around and after setting up my transition I felt oddly calm, usually I am a hive of nerves and anxiety leading up to the start. I started the swim farthest to the right, making sure I can keep an eye on everyone because I breathe to the left. Jake Montgomery set a quick pace and I slotted in behind him for the first lap, but I lost his feet...

2015 IM 70.3 Oceanside

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
IMG 2357 I am so impressed with how fast the ladies field was this year and how deep the talent ran.  Wow to both Heather Jackson and Heather Wurtele for continuing to hold this race by the throat by trading off wins, this was HJ’s year.  Welcome to super-fast Holly Lawrence who came in under the radar and almost rode away with the race and held off fourth place Alicia Kaye.  The Canadians definitely came out guns blazing with Angela Duncan in fifth and solid Rachel McBride in 6th.  Magali would have been in the mix without a mechanical.  Go Canada!  Speaking of Canada, how about 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th in the men’s with Lionel, Brent, Taylor and Trevor kicking ass in top 10.  Never has the Canadian long course talent been deeper. Add to that my friend Marilyn Arsenault's win in the master's division at the Carlsbad 5000 - yay Mar!  Good times. Most of team Canada... missing the Wurteles, Angela Naeth and Alicia Kaye and including coaches Cliff English and...

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...

Thoughts on Oceanside

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 Lsanderstri
On Saturday I raced Oceanside 70.3 in California. Wow! What an experience. It was my first time ever going to California. Man was it ever beautiful. It was also my first time ever going to a race by myself. I was a bit nervous about the logistics of renting a car, navigating from San Diego to Oceanside, booking a hotel, etc. but it all went smoothly. I was also fortunate in that my coach Barrie Shepley drove all the way from Tucson to support both myself and my C3-High Performance team-mate Taylor Reid. It’s amazing what a year’s worth of experience can do. Last year going into St. George 70.3 I was a nervous wreck. I was very intimidated by the competition and didn’t really feel like I belonged there. As a result, I finished 18th nearly 10 minutes behind the winner Jan Frodeno. This time round I felt a lot more confident. I felt like I belonged there. I felt like I was part of the game. I had a smooth morning and transition set up. I created an itemized list containing all of the...

My new ride

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
My 2015 Ceepo Katana has arrived! I have been riding Ceepo nearly my entire career, they were my first sponsor and I partnered with them after my first Ironman Victory at the end of 2007, so I have had 12 iron distance victories on their bikes. I have been riding the Katana since 2010. Every year Ceepo makes subtle changes, and the bike just keeps on improving, slightly lighter, slightly more aero. I love working with Ceepo as they are such a great team of people, that are just so passionate about their bikes. This year I have been particularly lucky. My former components sponsor SRAM did not wish to resign me at the end of last year, so Ceepo very kindly stepped in and helped me out with Shimano Di2 components. Quite a few people had been telling me just how good Di2 was, but I was slightly hesitant, as to be frank I am very much a laggard when it comes to technology, the simpler the better is typically my motto. But having ridden my new Ceepo now for only a number of days, I can say...

Ironman- It’s Such a Long Way

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Bellalux
Bella Bike IM Melbourne On possibly one of the best autumnal days, Melbourne could offer, I embarked on the biggest challenge of my fifteen years as a professional triathlete – Ironman Melbourne. As the Asia Pacific Championship event, the field was star studded with Ironman World Champions, Half Ironman World Champions, Olympic medalists and athletes seasoned over this distance. No one ever talks about Frankston as a place filled with talent, but as the sun rose, and the start horn sounded from the pier, the crystal waters of Frankston were filled with more talent than nearly any race outside Kona.   Exiting the water with a handy one-minute lead over the rest of the field, I had time to get through transition smoothly and enjoy the cheering of the crowd. Looking back on the swim, I wish that I had pushed myself harder. In my last few races, I have been fortunate to race with athletes, like Jodie Swallow who has a great swim pedigree, pushing the pace at the front. When racing Jodie, you certainly...

Quick Q&A with Grant

Saturday 28 Mar 2015 Tim
maxresdefault I thought it would be interesting to get a coach’s perspective on the athlete/coach relationship, so I’ve grabbed the microphone, put on the interviewer hat and asked my coach, Grant ‘Gilesy’ Giles, some hard-hitting questions about coaching in general and coaching me in particular. TB: So Grant, coach of Tim Van Berkel and Director of the Aeromax Team, welcome to this interview. Are you ready to go deep? GG: Fire away! TB: The athlete/coach relationship develops over time. Can you tell us how your relationship with Tim has changed through the nine years you’ve been together? GG: It’s evolved from working on everything to working a lot more selectively on what needs to improve in the moment to move the whole thing forward. For a younger athlete it’s about building the platform to create a stable and consistent athlete. Once that’s achieved, like it is with Tim, at 30, then I look a lot more at what we need to get him to do not just to be consistent, but to place in world-class...

Anatomy of an athlete/coach relationship

Saturday 28 Mar 2015 Tim
220-triathlon-front-cover-March-2015 Get it right and it can be an athlete’s greatest asset, get it wrong and it can have the destructive power of a marriage made in hell, with the details splashed all over the media. I’m talking about the relationship that an athlete has with their coach. This is a follow-on piece from my recent article in 220 Triathlon where I talk about the importance of the athlete-coach relationship. If you are like me you’ll probably want to subscribe and read the whole magazine on your iPad.   For me personally, my relationship with Gilesy (Grant Giles) has been a long-term partnership, now 9 years, and definitely worth moving across the country for. I started working with Gilesy as a fresh-faced 21 year old. Over those years our relationship has changed and developed, but it continues to give me a competitive edge. The Key to Success A Canadian study, conducted after the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, interviewed 27 elite athletes and 30 coaches about the factors that they believed...

Ironman Melbourne - Asia Pacific Championship

Thursday 19 Mar 2015
Picture photo by witsup.com    1st   -   8:52:51   swim   -   54:44 (7th)   bike     -   4:48:01 (5th)   run      -   3:06:32 (2nd) photo by Joanne Baxas I'm not sure how many times I visualized just how my race in Melbourne would pan out but every time it had me crossing the line first with a huge smile on my face. It wasn't just the finish line that I imagined. I went through my entire race section by section. My final visualisations were what I thought would be conservative. In brief, I'd have a decent swim exiting the water around 3min behind the leaders. I'd get off the bike with a 5min deficit. In past races with long bike legs, I've always hammered the first half of the bike to try get to the lead ASAP but this time I really wanted to conserve a little energy to have a good run. And then for the run I had strict instructions from Jared to run no faster than low 4's (4min/km). "4:0-...

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 [...]

Sam Appleton, Challenge Batemans Bay

Sam Appleton, Challenge Batemans Bay

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 [Triathlon News]

I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my 2015 season. After ending last year in a disappointing way, I am really proud of myself to have turned it all around into the best form I’ve ever had. Since racing Huskisson in February I have relocated up north to Byron. I was initially going to try and settle into my new environment and not race Batemans Bay, but Tim and I decided that with two really solid weeks we could get my body into winning shape. more

Ben Allen from Australia and Jacqui Slack of Great Britain won the 14th annual XTERRA Saipan Championship race in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands on Saturday. It’s the fourth year in a row Allen won the title, matching Olivier Marceau’s streak from 2004-07. For Slack, it’s her second Saipan victory in three years. Both led from wire-to-wire in wet conditions that made the already difficult jungle bike and run courses all the more treacherous. more

Annabel Luxford, Ironman-Its Such a Long Way

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

On possibly one of the best autumnal days, Melbourne could offer, I embarked on the biggest challenge of my fifteen years as a professional triathlete – Ironman Melbourne. As the Asia Pacific Championship event, the field was star studded with Ironman World Champions, Half Ironman World Champions, Olympic medalists and athletes seasoned over this distance. No one ever talks about Frankston as a place filled with talent, but as the sun rose, and the start horn sounded from the pier, the crystal w more

Do the Dome?

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
bottle I started writing this as a technical document but let’s face it. I should be doing other things and so should you so I will write this more as an abstract. Over the course of the last 4 years I have been to many test facilities including A2, CMEFE, and done multiple velodrome tests regarding dome top bottles. I tested multiple bottles between the arms (BTA), down tube, seat tube, and with multiple behind the saddle single & double mounts. When the standard bottle is BTA it is in turbulent air and essentially a free nutritional storage place without an increase in drag. When adding a dome top bottle facing forward there is negligible difference when compared to a standard bottle, but when the bottle is facing rearward (dome toward the saddle) the drag was slightly lower than a forward facing dome shape bottle. Now the differences talked about above were consistent but very very small, we’re talking fractions of a Watt yet this explains why there is a business for BTA systems. On...

Challenge Batemans Bay

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Sam Appleton)
I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my 2015 season. After ending last year in a disappointing way, I am really proud of myself to have turned it all around into the best form I’ve ever had. Since racing Huskisson in February I have relocated up north to Byron. I was initially going to try and settle into my new environment and not race Batemans Bay, but Tim and I decided that with two really solid weeks we could get my body into winning shape. Batemans Bay has been a happy hunting ground for me in the past, and this is the fourth year in a row I have made the sojourn south of Sydney to this beautiful coastal town. Race morning rolled around and after setting up my transition I felt oddly calm, usually I am a hive of nerves and anxiety leading up to the start. I started the swim farthest to the right, making sure I can keep an eye on everyone because I breathe to the left. Jake Montgomery set a quick pace and I slotted in behind him for the first lap, but I lost his feet...

2015 IM 70.3 Oceanside

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
IMG 2357 I am so impressed with how fast the ladies field was this year and how deep the talent ran.  Wow to both Heather Jackson and Heather Wurtele for continuing to hold this race by the throat by trading off wins, this was HJ’s year.  Welcome to super-fast Holly Lawrence who came in under the radar and almost rode away with the race and held off fourth place Alicia Kaye.  The Canadians definitely came out guns blazing with Angela Duncan in fifth and solid Rachel McBride in 6th.  Magali would have been in the mix without a mechanical.  Go Canada!  Speaking of Canada, how about 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th in the men’s with Lionel, Brent, Taylor and Trevor kicking ass in top 10.  Never has the Canadian long course talent been deeper. Add to that my friend Marilyn Arsenault's win in the master's division at the Carlsbad 5000 - yay Mar!  Good times. Most of team Canada... missing the Wurteles, Angela Naeth and Alicia Kaye and including coaches Cliff English and...

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...
