Ironman European Championship

Date: Sunday 05 July 2015 Add To Calendar
Location: Frankfurt (Germany)

The 3.8 kilometer (2.4 mile) swim at the Frankfurter Sparkasse Ironman European Championship is a two loop affair in the Langenaar Waldsee, a lake about 12 kilometers from the race centre in Frankfurt. The bike course is both fast, and technical. After riding out of T1 at Langener Waldsee, the athletes do about a 12km ride into Frankfurt where the start the rest of the course, which is made up of two loops. The run course in Frankfurt consists of three 14km laps. The course is made up of a series of out-and-back sections on either side of the River Main. The course looks like it should be fast -- it's very flat. It's tough to post a fast time here, though, because there are a number of turns -- both 180 degree turns at each of the four turnaround points, and the tricky roundabouts to negotiate over the bridge that the runners negotiate a couple of times each lap.

Frederik Van Lierde and Jodie Swallow dominated the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship. After leading the swim, an uncharacteristically circumspect display on the bike and measured run saw Britain's Jodie Swallow, achieve an emotional victory at the Standard Bank IRONMAN African Championship.

Brownlee brilliance delivers Auckland win

Brownlee brilliance delivers Auckland win

Sunday 29 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

Great Britian’s Jonathan Brownlee was determined to not take another ITU World Triathlon Auckland silver medal on Sunday as he produced a breakout run to earn him his first WTS title of the season. His four-lap run went uncontested as he out-ran the reigning WTS Auckland champion Javier Gomez Noya (ESP) who took the second-podium spot. For Frenchman Pierre Le Corre it was a career best result for bronze and just reward for a great race. more

Magnus Backstedt pulls out of Ironman Lanzarote

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Norsemen
Pro-cyclist-turned-pro-Ironman triathlete Magnus Backstedt has withdrawn from Ironman Lanzarote, citing illness as the reason for his withdrawal. In a post to his Facebook page, Backstedt commented: It is pretty painful to say that i’m not going to be able to start my season as planned with IM Lanzarote. I have suffered with the one illness after the other over the past month and haven’t been able to train at all really. So i have decided that the best way forward is to chill out and then get back to training when my body is ready for it. I have tried too many times in the past to get back to training/racing too quickly after illness and injury and i think as i’m getting a bit older it’s time to get wise as well. So, i’m gonna wait until i’m well and then start training and make a new plan for the season.

Liz Blatchford 2nd at Challenge Batemans Bay

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Norsemen
In Batesman Bay, Liz Blatchford was racing in front from start to finish.  The run leg became a shoulder-to-shoulder battle of 21km. In the last 60m, Yvonne Van Vlerken (NED:4:27:48) took the victory in this exciting race, Liz Blatchford (AUS: 4:27:49) of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team came second, while Mary Beth Ellis (USA) came third.

British 1, 2 and 3 at Ironman South Africa

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Norsemen
There were amazing performances and an astonishing display of strength in depth for British iron-distance women at Ironman South Africa Championships with a 1, 2 and 3 for Jodie Swallow, Lucy Gossage and Susie Cheetham. Indeed, it was a somewhat emotional and fitting win for Jodie as any South African race is seen as her ‘home turf’ due to the amount of time she spends there and she will have been a popular champion. Whilst Swallow took a clear win, it was an exciting finish for other reasons as Gossage and Cheetham used their superior run speeds to get themselves into 2nd and 3rd. Afterwards, Swallow dedicated her win to triathlete Linda Scattolin who tragically lost her life recently. David Mcnamee, who is hoped to do big things for Scotland at the longer stuff, debuted in Ironman with a creditable 7th place. Fraser Cartmell also raced and came in 19th.

Want to run faster? Burn more carbs!

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Paul Moore
On April 20, more than 30,000 runners will run the 2015 Boston Marathon. Which one of these 30,000 athletes will burn energy at the highest rate during the race? That’s easy: the winner—probably. How do I know this? Because the rate of energy consumption during running is largely a function of speed. The faster an athlete runs, the more rapidly his or her body burns energy. And, of course, the athlete who runs the fastest in any given race is the winner. Actually, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Body weight and movement efficiency also affect the rate of energy use during running. Heavier runners burn more energy at any given pace while efficient runners burn less. But these other factors actually cancel themselves out: heaviness by slowing runners down so they burn less energy and efficiency by allowing runners to go faster so they burn more. In the final analysis, I can’t guarantee that the first person across the finish line of the Boston Marathon will have burned energy at...

McConnel, Hitchings crowned National Cross Duathlon Champs at Hole Park

Monday 30 Mar 2015 Norsemen
Whilst it was a busy weekend internationally on the XTERRA and Ironman circuit, domestically there was a Triathlon England championship to settle at the Hole Park Mtb Duathlon, organised by TriSpirit Events and doubling as the Triathlon England National Cross Duathlon Championships. A petite but very talented field assembled for the championships, which included the country’s most successful off-road triathlete Sam Gardner (who was coming out of retirement for this race), 7-time world champion Richard Stannard, XTERRA pros Jon Heasman, James Walker and Jim McConnel, regular off-road winner Philip Westoby and former international Jez Cox. The women’s field was lacking familiar ‘names’ but the race was still wonderfully competitive at the sharp end. In addition to the championship race, there was also an open category, a sprint duathlon and a long course duathlon – as well as two trail runs and a doggy dash – making for a fab atmosphere across two days in what is a stunning country...

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...
