Ironman Frankfurt

Date: Sunday 09 July 2017 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.

4 Lesser-Known Grains And Their Benefits

Friday 22 Jul 2016 Liz Hichens
Quinoa and bulgur are so last year. Try these four lesser-known grains high in performance-boosting attributes. You probably already know that, nutritionally, whole grains trump refined grains—that’s why you load your grocery cart with brown rice, whole-wheat bread and oatmeal. But maybe you’ve become a bit blasé about these familiar items. Thankfully for carbohydrate-craving triathletes, it has never been easier to find a marvelous assortment of whole grains on store shelves or in bulk bins. Look for them at any well-stocked health food/natural food store, or try Bobsredmill.com or Lotusfoods.com. Many of the following grains have the goods to boost performance and awaken a bored palate. Here are four great grains to stock in your pantry. Load up on antioxidants with: Black rice Black rice, an heirloom variety of rice cultivated in Asia with a rich, sweet nutty taste and chewy texture, is the new bastion of the health-food movement. According to scientists at Louisiana State...

2016 Ironman UK, Bolton

Saturday 23 Jul 2016 Fraser
image 9th place (7th MPro) – 9:24:31 This is my ‘glad to be finished’ face after a long day of racing. This was my 5th time racing in Bolton since 2010 and given it was my first full distance event since Ironman Hawaii last October I was looking forward to being back and certainly ready to get back on the horse, so to speak. Sometimes however, it just doesn’t quite pan out on the day as you had hoped it might.  Having not raced a whole lot so far this season, the event has always been my main goal for the summer, and first portion of the season. Mostly because it’s a race that I have always fared well at, and obviously enjoyed racing – it’s a home race after all – but also because I am racing for a new sponsor for 2016, Pewag Racing Team, who were keen for me to target the race too. Having won here in 2010, and finished 2nd both in 2012 and last year too (plus having actually always been the first runner to leave T2) I have genuine confidence...

Scottish Duathlon Champs 2016

Thursday 31 Mar 2016 Fraser
image 2016 is a new year, and this weekend saw me start this new season wearing new racing colours. – I am now a part of the Pewag Racing Team, which is Austrian sponsored and based, but is composed of an international group of 9 professional athletes. I look forward to wearing the kit and promoting the brand in international competition over the coming months. The Stirling Duathlon has many times been a season opener for me, and as long as I am at home and in the country, I will do my best to race. I might not entirely enjoy the idea of running and biking (and running some more) in the mud, wind, rain, hail and cold… But I’ll get on with it  As part of the team we have a range of partner sponsors which means some changes for me in terms of the equipment I’ll be racing with during the year. Thankfully I continue to race in the superb Castelli clothing but the Stirling Duathlon will have been my last race aboard a Trek. I have been incredibly fortunate to have had...

Ironman World Championships; Kona, Hawaii 2015

Friday 23 Oct 2015 Fraser
image 38th place (391st overall) – 10:07:08 The infamous ‘Hawi Express’ pulls out of the station There had been a long time between drinks. It was 5 years since my last (and only) race on the Big Island – the biggest race of them all in non drafting triathlon; Ironman Kona. This goal of qualifying for Kona once again had essentially started two years beforehand when I was on the island supporting Ali on her very first attempt at the distance, but started for me in serious earnest just over one year ago at IM Wales. However, with some reasonable reflection since returning home I can now grasp why it was this very (drawn out!) process that resulted in my finish time being over an hour slower than ever before in an M-dot. Undeniably, once I had qualified for Kona it was ‘head down, bum up’ territory. You believe in yourself to be able to ready on that given day, which admittedly was not that far away anymore. But you tell yourself it’s far enough...

Ironman UK, Bolton 2015

Wednesday 22 Jul 2015 Fraser
image 2nd place – 8:51:06 L-R: Myself, David McNamee and Joe Skipper With a quick glance you would be forgiven for reading this blog and believing I only write a race report when I’ve completed the Ironman distance and also managed to finish 2nd… however I have simply been rather tardy on the writing side of things these past 10 months. Back on track now! I have fond memories of racing in Bolton, and with good reason – five years ago I won this event, and although on the one hand it seems like only yesterday it often seems a lifetime ago too. Having also finished 2nd in 2012 I know that there is something about racing IMUK that suits me and my style of swim/bike/run. Bearing that in mind I set about coming back this summer for another attempt at getting to the city centre finish line before anyone else. – No easy task given the list of athletes who had signed up to race; between those of us on the start list there were 4 of us who had won won an Ironman event...

Pictures; IM Wales – Tenby

Saturday 20 Sep 2014 Fraser
pic13 2nd place – 9:10:16 Tenby is a wonderful little seaside town – and when the tide is out it certainly leaves behind an expansive beach! On the Friday before race day we had our Pro brifing and the tv crew also did some pre-race interviews out on the beach front. Looking at this picture I could easily be anywhere on the Spanish or French coastlines in summer time, not autumn in the UK! To see the tv coverage look out for Ch4 on the morning of Sunday 5th Oct. It was an incoming tide on the morning of the race as you can see from the photo above – this bouy only floated in the half hour before our race start… We had an impressive sunrise to greet us on the beach just before the start. Not to mention an angry sea! I mentioned previously in my earlier blog that the swim was not something I found enjoyable, and I feel that this image typifies that! It was simply a case of ‘just get through it’ out there. Rarely on the Tenby bike course were there...
