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

Allen, Slack win XTERRA Saipan Champs

Tuesday 31 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

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

Workouts for your bike commute

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Bike commutes offer a host of benefits: physical fitness, reduced impact on the environment, primo parking, and (in some cases) cash bonuses from employee wellness programs. Plus, a recent study out of Clemson University reveals happiness may be linked to the mode of transportation utilised to get to and from work. Those who commuted by bike were significantly more cheerful than those who drove cars or rode public transportation. For triathletes, it’s a way to kill two birds with one stone—get to work and get a workout. Maximise your saddle time with these three workouts: Traveling Technique Use your short rides to and from work to focus on one element of cycling technique. Aim for a high cadence (90–100 RPM) and an even pedal stroke the entire way around, or work on your transitions from climbing in then out of the saddle. Traffic light Intervals After a 5–10-minute warm-up, insert short bursts of speed by riding hard from one traffic light to the next, followed by an easier recovery...

How to be a healthy snacker

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockAs a sports dietitian, everyday I answer questions about snacking: “Should I be snacking between meals?” or “How much should I eat for my pre-workout snack?” or “What time should my snack(s) be?” You’ll be happy to hear that yes, triathletes need snacks! Well-timed snacks help you fuel up before and replenish after workouts 1–2 times per day. Mid-afternoon snacks maintain your energy level and prevent you from becoming too ravenous (and thus making bad choices) at dinner. Snacks also provide you opportunities to fit in all the healthy foods your body craves and needs in order to perform your best. So what should you snack on and when? Pre-Workout Fuel up on carbs before workouts to ensure you have the energy to give your all. Add a little protein before longer workouts and before mid-day workouts. Snacks to try: – Oatmeal topped with Greek yogurt – Half of a peanut butter and banana sandwich – Split pea or pumpkin soup with whole-grain crackers – Baked sweet potato...

The Lakesman triathlon is launched

Wednesday 01 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Lakesman, the Cumbria’s first on-road long distance triathlon, has been in launched in Keswick. The event takes place on Sunday 19 June 2016 and is expected to attract around 750 endurance athletes from across the UK and beyond. It is being launched now to ensure participants can reach perfect fitness by next Summer.

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...
