Ironman Frankfurt

Date: Sunday 03 July 2016 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.

Jan Frodeno stamped his ticket to Kona with a second place finish at Ironman Lanzarote on Sunday. The current Ironman World Champion led out of the swim, but a helmet malfunction in transition delayed his entry onto the bike course. With the day’s second fastest bike split, Frodeno once again put himself into position to win, taking to the front at five kilometers into the marathon. It was only in the last third of the run leg that eventual winner Jesse Thomas took the lead and then the win. more

Monday 23 May 2016 [Triathlon News]

The Swiss women's champion impresses while the Swedish men’s champion strikes late. Smart tactics pay off a lot in long-distance events. Swede Patrik Nilsson was working hard for the win at IRONMAN 70.3 Barcelona, but moreover, was waiting long for the right moment to make his move. When Guillem Rojas (ESP) led the men’s pro field out of the water in 23:25, Nilsson was in 11th, but only 11 seconds behind and already in the mix. more

Faces In The Pack: Age Grouper Emily Holcroft

Saturday 28 May 2016 Bethany Mavis
A couple health scares couldn’t keep this age-grouper from racing her first triathlon. At 41 years old, Emily Holcroft was in the shape of her life while training for her first triathlon. A year prior, the nurse and mother of four almost lost her life when an artery was nicked during a hysterectomy. “After a long recovery, I made up my mind that I was going to live life and get back to the things I once loved prior to having children,” she says. “Knowing that running wasn’t my strength, a friend recommended looking into a triathlon.” While training for that first triathlon in August 2013, she started noticing shortness of breath during her workouts—her bike rides went from 25 miles to 5 miles; she could barely swim 500 yards when she was used to swimming 3600 and her 3-mile runs were reduced to a half mile. Then she started having pain in her left arm. “I was extremely frustrated—I thought I pulled my bicep muscle while swimming,” she says. “Never in a million years was an impending...

Six Steps To Developing a Psychology of Success

Friday 27 May 2016 Triathlete.com
This article was excerpted with permission from Alan Culpepper’s new book, “Run Like a Champion: An Olympian’s Approach For Every Runner” (VeloPress, 2015). Although this article was written specifically for runners, its advice is relevant to all triathletes. 1) Recognize Your Incentive To reach your full potential as a runner and achieve your short- and long-term goals, it’s important to honestly explore and embrace your primary incentive for running. It is that singular motivating factor that you will fall back on when the training gets hard, when you naturally start to lose some of that initial excitement and motivation, when you get into a training rut or when the weather is bad and you don’t feel like lacing up your shoes. Why do you want to go through all that is necessary to reach your goals? Is it out of joy? Anger? Loss? Faith? Freedom? For some, the motivation is crystal clear. Some of the greatest athletes on the planet run to escape poverty, using the financial incentives...

2015 WRAP UP

Monday 16 Nov 2015 Admin
IMG_0354 You know it’s been a tough year when you have a small but persistent season long injury, get hit by a car, and have to deal with an unprecedented amount of things affecting your career yet simultaneously are out of your control. Needless to say it’s been a rocky season, but it has also been amazing and now that our time in Europe has come to the end I can reflect on all the good things. Here’s an overview of the places I’ve raced and trained and how I rate them (out of 10)… Training locations: GIRONA, Spain (Winter, Spring & Autumn) Swimming (pools/open water) 10 Biking 9 Running 8 Gym 8 Physiotherapy/Massage/Sports Medicine 7 Vegetarian Eating 2 Healthy Shopping 9 Non Triathlon Activities 7 Coffee 8 Bakeries 7 Charm 10       HEIDELBERG, Germany (Summer) Swimming (pools/open water) 8 (Lots of 50m pools just not great for training as they don’t believe in lane...

TRIATHLON GERARDMER

Monday 07 Sep 2015 Admin
DSC_0175 Some movies start with a scene frozen in time, paused just before the climax and then rewind to the beginning of the story for the build up. If the 2015 Triathlon Gerardmer were a movie it would begin with the prize banquet and the moment just before Hector Guerra pops the cork off his 1.5 liter bottle of champagne. Catching a glimpse of him ripping the foil, I hopped (or hobbled) off stage and the rest of the guys from the top 8 stepped back towards the race committee. With nowhere else to turn and revenge in his eyes, Guerra aimed the bottle at the front table consisting of 8 people, 6 were members of my family and 2 were family friends.   Race Recap I was excited to return to Gerardmer, where I won the ITU European Long Course Championships in 2008. It’s a family run race and I was particularly excited to share this race with my father, Paul Gambles, and family friend Kim White, who were both with me on the start line four days after they arrived from Australia. A week earlier...

CHALLENGE SALOU

Thursday 04 Jun 2015 Admin
IMG_2062 EUROPE 2015 Race 2 – Challenge Salou After the disappointment of pulling out of Pays d’Aix 70.3 four weeks earlier, I set out for my second European race of the 2015 season. It is always a hard decision to pull out of a race and to know when you should push on and when to stop. For me, I felt that it was important to have a wider perspective and leave some in the tank to reach my major goals for the season. After one week of complete rest and a 3 week block of tweaking my training schedule with my coach Neal Henderson of Apex Coaching, I started to get back on track.  This would not have been possible without the amazing support of my network in Girona which consists of CENIT (nutrition, osteo/physio), the FISIO-CENTER (massage, kinesio taping) and VeloLoveFit (bike fit). The pieces fell into place a week before Challenge Salou but, to be completely honest, I was quite nervous leading into this race. I knew that I was fit but there was still the uncertainty of whether my calf...

2015 UPDATE

Sunday 22 Feb 2015 Admin
IMG_0218 2015 is off to an exciting start as I have decided to dedicate the year to racing in Europe and the Middle East. It was a difficult decision for Sage, Coop and I to leave the comfort of Boulder for the year, but we felt it was time to mix things up a bit and with the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria this year, Europe seemed the logical choice for relocation. As I was born in England, I have an EU passport which allows us to live in most of Europe, but we chose Girona as a base for several reasons. Although we have moved here in winter the weather is still mild and I have ridden outside 99% of the time so far.  The trail network for running is quite extensive and starts right in the centre of the city. I joined a great fitness centre with a very nice 50m & 25m saline swimming pool, sauna, a running track and weight room. I have been very lucky to set myself up so quickly as we moved here just 6 weeks before a very competitive race and my first one of the season. But...

WORLD 70.3 CHAMPIONSHIPS – Mont Tremblant, Canada

Saturday 13 Sep 2014 Admin
10626625_10152831723668787_7070225971592061299_n Mont Tremblant was the perfect venue for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships and it was witness to the most competitive race I have ever been a part of.  Each year the field keeps getting deeper and faster and this year was no exception. The challenging course didn’t even help to slow the competition down.  There were some fast splits posted, with swim times of 22 minutes, ride times of 2:04 and an amazing run by Gomez of 1:09, showing just how fast 70.3 racing has become.
