70.3 Racine

Date: Sunday 20 July 2014 Add To Calendar
Location: Racine, Wisconsin (United States)

The 1.2-mile swim course is a point to point along North Beach in Lake Michigan. North Beach Park is open for practice during the normal swimming season - weather permitting. Water temperature is almost always less than 78 degrees. Wetsuits are allowed and encouraged. North Beach is named a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beach Council. The Bike Course is an exciting 56-mile course through the scenic countryside of Racine County. This is a mostly rolling course with some challenging hills mixed in to keep you honest. This unique run course is a 13.1-mile double out-and-back that features a tour of the Racine Zoo, offering participants views of lions, black rhinos, monkeys, giraffes, kangaroos, and many more exotic animals. The remaining course runs along the beautiful Lake Michigan coastline as you make your way toward the Racine Lighthouse to the run turn around at Shoop Park. The course is very flat and fast!

Jessica Meyers, What a Difference a Week Makes!

Jessica Meyers, What a Difference a Week Makes!

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 [Triathlon News]

I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. more

Brant Garvey: rookie of the year

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 David@blitzmag.com.au (Luke Dodemaide)
Brant Garvey: rookie of the year - Triathlon & Multisport magazine Brant Garvey, a celebrated wheelchair athlete, hadn’t ridden a bike before 2013 and had hardly run more than a few steps without falling. But on the strength of a new carbon fibre leg, and newfound ambition, he powered first through an ITU triathlon before finishing an ironman.

Upper Body Strength Training For Run Form

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Jeremey DuVall, M.S., CPT
Avoid neglecting your upper body for better form and improved posture when running. Photo: ShutterstockA bulky upper body haunts the dreams of runners nearly as much as a forced mid-race porta-potty stop. Extra weight up top brings visions of slower race times and reduced flexibility, which leads to runners neglecting their upper body in the weight room. Not only does this neglect a major component of running form, but it also sets runners up for injuries down the road. Believe it or not, the upper body plays a huge role in endurance performance. The arms are responsible for maintaining a rhythmic motion in tune with the lower body. The shoulders should be properly positioned and flexible enough to allow the diaphragm to expand unimpeded and provide proper airflow. Most importantly, the torso must have a stable foundation to prevent excess rotation during the running motion. While running looks like a simple forward and backward motion, it’s actually a complex motion that involves both...

Slots for 2015 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Tjnick
2015-IMWC-703.png Earlier this month IRONMAN announced that it had chosen Zell am See-Kaprun, Austria to host the 2015 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship triathlon. The championship race is scheduled for August 30, 2015 and marks the first time that the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship will be held in Europe. In a recent interview with Triathlete Magazine, Andrew Messick stated: "We're going to rebalance all the slots--that's the first thing. Starting with the 2015 qualifying cycle, which starts in April 2014, virtually all North American races will have fewer slots and all European races will have more slots. We're very much anticipating--and engineering in the process--that there will be more qualifying opportunities in Europe for the 2015 world championships than there were in 2014. I would expect--and this is broadly speaking--if it's going to be a 2,500-athlete race, we'll have 1,000 North Americans, 1,000 Europeans, and 500 from Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific.

7 Steps To An Injury-Free Season

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Jené Shaw
Photo: Dan Holz / TandemstockFollow these techniques to build a rock-solid foundation. Want to avoid injury this year? We do, too. So we enlisted the help of Kyle Herrig, a USAT-certified coach, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and owner of Triplex Training in Tempe, Ariz., to give us tips that would keep us training healthy. 1. Do a functional strength-training program in and out of season. “Runners and triathletes seem to think that with all the swim/bike/run work that they’re putting in that they are getting stronger every day,” Herrig says. “But while running is good for building strength, our body just goes through a limited range of motion—there is not a real deep knee bend or a lot of hip flexion involved. It’s important for our bodies to move through greater ranges of motion not only to maintain flexibility, but to continue to fire and recruit more muscle fibers.” RELATED: Injury Prevention Advice For Triathletes 2. Move in all planes. Triathletes move in a...

Tri Bike Check: Cannondale Slice 5 105

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Aaron Hersh
All triathlon bikes are not made equal. What’s more, price or technological advancements do not always mean you are getting the best bike for you. We’re taking a look at four different triathlon bikes, each boasting different technologies and at different price points. So far we have examined the Orbea Ordu M30, the Cervelo P3 Dura-Ace. Today it is the turn of the Cannondale Slice 5 105. Techie upgrades can help squeeze the last few drops of speed from a well-trained athlete, but cycling performance ultimately comes down to human ability. This bike has all the attributes needed to exploit a rider’s fitness, and the sticker price is reasonable. Transcendent handling gives the bike a seemingly innate sense of the rider’s intentions. A luxuriously appointed machine this is not, but the components can be upgraded to match the frame’s prowess. Ride Feel free to push the boundaries during a technical de- scent on this bike. It can sweep through broad curves without ever feeling...

New Orleans 70.3 Race Recap – 2014

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Haley
redbullrelay2 Why race a half Ironman exactly two weeks after an Ironman? 1. I’m always up for a little experimentation: 2. In small doses, I really like the city of New Orleans: Pretty sure this was a parade of auditors and giant puppets on Canal Street. 3. I was the defending champ! I should post this picture weekly just to make myself smile!!! I knew racing New Orleans was risky this year, but it was a risk I was more than happy to take. I had fully convinced myself Ironman Los Cabos was just a big training day and my legs were more than ready to tear through the Crescent City. For the first hour and a half of the race, I was RIGHT! The swim and first 20 miles of the bike were a BLAST. First out of the South Shore Harbor Marina! Woo hoo! I was riding up the front with Anna Cleaver and LOVING it. I felt like I was really racing and it was awesome. Shortly after the 20 mile mark Anna took the lead. And that’s when it happened: BIKE MELTDOWNNNNNNN!!!!   I’m no stranger to...

Eyes Forward, Mind Clear

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Admin
I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a point whereby we need to step away and get back to the basics; doing our best, at the moment, on the day; ultimately striving simply for happiness and self-fulfillment over ‘more’. Comparison is the thief of Joy. When I heard this, I was comparing myself to my own past standards; points in my career whereby I’ve been at my best, having achieved small feats I’d never thought possible. So here I sit, having been through a few hurdles the past year that have proven both physically and mentally...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

"Back on the horse"

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Due to the incident during Ironman Western Australia late last year during the bike portion where an altercation with a media motorbike resulted in knee surgery early in the year. It is now nice to be bouncing back all be it later in the Australian summer than hoped, (missing Ironman Melbourne - home event) and gearing up for Ironman Australia in Port Macquarie.Although the preparation has not been 100% due to rehab, I can say that I have been able to do as much training as possible that my body would allow me. That means I am heading into Ironman Australia (as defending champion) in the best position I can be under the circumstances, or cards dealt.I am very much looking forward to getting back on the start line, feeling those nerves pre race and just "letting go" once the gun goes off.We train to race and race because we love it.BestLuke :)

Oceanside to Galveston...What a Difference a Week Makes!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. I got off the bike twice to fix it, the wheel would spin no problem, only to get back on and hear that dreaded sound of carbon rubbing (and you know exactly that cringe worthy sound). But beyond that, I was completely flat for the race. The swim was off, the bike my legs just felt like bricks, and the first loop of the run I was clipping off a great pace, but once the gravity of how far I was behind I just shut it down. My mind got the best of me, I felt sorry for myself, my ego was bruised...it definitely was not my finest nor proudest moment. photo courtesy slowtwitch.com Coach Kevin and I...
