Bertrand Billard Bikes it Home in Budapest

Sunday 31 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

Thanks to extraordinary performances on the bike course, Austria's Lisa Huetthaler and Frenchman Bertrand Billard took the wins in a fast race. In the men’s race at IRONMAN 70.3 Budapest, a Hungarian stormed the swim just as he had done the week before at IRONMAN Switzerland. Balasz Csoke had the fastest swim in 23:03, and he started onto the bike course in first place just seconds ahead of a strong group including favorites like Ivan Rana (ESP), Horst Reichel (GER) and Bertrand Billard (FRA). more

Ironman Maastricht Gruelling triathlon appeals to Bas Diederen

Ironman Maastricht Gruelling triathlon appeals to Bas Diederen

Friday 29 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

The second Ironman Maastricht—Limburg, which will start and finish in Maastricht on 31 July 2016, will be every bit as gruelling as the first one last year. “That goes for both the bike course and the run course,” says the reigning men’s winner after his first course inspection today. “The organisers may have scrapped the steep climb up Cauberg Hill, but tackling Côte de Hallembaye twice is quite a challenge, not to mention running up St Pietersberg four times.” more

Ironman Vineman who will be the pick of the crop ?

Thursday 28 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

One of the prettiest and most popular races on the circuit, IRONMAN Vineman offers a unique blend of pinot and PR's. The Continental United States' oldest full-distance event, the IRONMAN Vineman triathlon has been a California classic for decades. The experience which Vineman athletes have will be unmatched, as they swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles through beautiful Sonoma County's wine country. more

ASADA to hand down maximum doping ban to Australian Triathlete

Saturday 30 Jul 2016 Liam Bromilow
Australian professional triathlete Lisa Marangon is set to receive a maximum four-year doping violation to be handed down by ASADA in the coming days. The violation was detected at this years Challenge Melbourne event, where tests found a positive result for the Performance Enhancing Drug Ostarine. In a statement made by Marangon to Triathlete Magazine, she said, “It is with a heavy heart that I wish to announce that in January of this year I tested positive for a banned substance, called ‘Ostarine.’ As will be evident over the coming period of time, I maintain that I did not knowingly take this substance and that I am the victim of tampering and or sabotage at the hands of person/s who wish to cause me harm.” Marangon believes that her race water bottle was tampered with in a period of time whilst her bike was racked pre-race. Ostarine, known as MK-2866, is an androgen receptor that was developed for the prevention and treatment of muscle wastage. It can assist in...

Pros Racing Saturday In Historic Ironman Vineman

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Liz Hichens
While Vineman is the oldest iron-distance event in the continental U.S. (dating back to 1990), this will be the first year it’s branded as an Ironman race. The classic race takes place in the scenic Sonoma County wine country in Northern California, and this year it will feature a $50,000 professional prize purse and 40 age-group qualifying slots for October’s Ironman World Championship. The course features beautiful wine country scenery set in cool mornings and warm days. The 2.4-mile swim starts from Johnson’s Beach in the Russian River, and the 112-mile bike course is a mix of terrain that takes athletes through multiple grape growing regions with almost 4000 feet of climbing. The two-loop marathon course traverses scenic country roads within Sonoma County. In the pro race, previous Full Vineman (non-Ironman-branded) champion Max Biessman tops the list with the most experience on this course. But he’ll face tough competition from veteran pro and Aussie Richie Cunningham, who has a...

How To Plan An Ironman Nutrition Strategy

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
Q: I’m training for my first Ironman, which is in a month. I have been using a sports drink and eating energy bars and sandwiches on the bike, but I rode with a buddy last weekend who recommended a new nutrition strategy—a mixture of two new (to me) sports drinks. Should I try it? A: Unless you have been experiencing repeated G.I. distress (gas, bloating, nausea or diarrhea) during or after training sessions with your current nutrition strategy, then no! I recommend sports drinks that contain both dextrose and sucrose, and extra sodium. The mixture of carbohydrates is important, as dextrose requires no digestion. Although both sugars provide rapidly available energy, they are taken up by the G.I. tract differently, which helps deliver more carbs to your working muscles, and helps maintain energy, pace and performance. Extra salt is crucial to endurance athletes, as we sweat 0.5 to 2-plus liters per hour during exercise, and 500 to 1,500-plus milligrams of sodium per liter of sweat!...

Headed home.

Tuesday 09 Oct 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
My final race in China two weeks ago was my last detour as I made my way back home after the Euro season.I left camp in Leysin 10 days earlier planning to squash an Iron distance race and double Olympic into the next two weekends. Things didn’t go perfect but I got through it and back home in one piece. Ready to have a bit of a break and get rid of some niggles that I have had lingering over the last few months.The Iron distance event was just off the coast of Singapore on a little island called Bintan. As expected it was hot and humid and being so close to the race in Hawaii there was only a small pro field.The conditions didn’t suit me but I thought it was worth a go, it had so many positive things going for it and was on my way home. My idea was that if I was struggling in the heat, just jog through the marathon and leave my legs fresh for the following week in China.The race started well and midway through the bike I joined one of my team mates. We worked well on the bike and came...

One more week.

Thursday 06 Sep 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
Our European camp is coming close to an end for another year, with most people slowly heading away over the last few weeks it seems like only the skeleton crew is left, which made me reflect apon just how much success we have acheived in the last couple of months as a squad. Its pretty amazing... So I've found some pictures to do the talking! My highlight for the camp is definitly seeing Nicola take the gold medal at the Olympics after all the hard work she puts in it was well deserved. But to see our whole squad performing well and enjoying their racing has been inspiring.For me it was good to get back into a bit of form again after a couple of ordinary races in the middle of the year. I just have to keep it rolling for two more races in Asia on the way back to Australia then a bit of time to catch up with the family before the Australian season kicks in.There are still some of the biggest races of the year coming up, so hopefully some more big results! The "Bulldog" mixing...

Challenge Copenhagen

Friday 17 Aug 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
After a good race and a great result in Copenhagen, I thought this would be a simple blog to write and such an enjoyable one. But its been a week of mixed emotions.On Tuesday morning one of my friends passed away while on a training ride back in Canberra. He was 27 and had the world in front of him.Without any warning or pre existing condition he had a heart attack and despite all efforts from everyone in the bunch was unable to be revived.I spent many hours with Robbie on the road and put down a lot of sweat and pain with him but nothing hurts as much as losing someone you have so much respect for.My thoughts go out to his family, fiancee and the cycling community back home.Last weekend was Challenge Copenhagen and after a few ordinary races in the middle of the year I came away with my second Challenge victory making it very satisfying.It was a late decision to enter this race but once again Brett was right. Similar to Ironman UK last year it was only the week before that I finalised...

Gettin through it!

Thursday 02 Aug 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
Three weeks into camp things are starting to feel better and the races are about to begin.When I arrived I thought I needed a good four weeks in the hills to get some form back to a competitive level before racing the back end of the European season and I am starting to feel that now. One of the quotes that Brett gave me last year stuck in my head he said “Training should start to feel like a droan” and I know every time I get into good shape thats exactly how it feels.Well when you are in camp like we are at the moment with no distractions and nothing else to do, it doesn’t take long to get that feeling and pretty soon you start to get some rythem and a bit of form. The last couple of weeks has been some pretty awesome training with our trip to Alpe D’Huez and some big days with the boys preparing for Kona later in the year. Racing begins next week with a trip to Challenge Copenhagen.My last voyage to Denmark was for Challenge Aarhus last year which ended in a total disaster...

Favorite 5 from the last year.

Saturday 30 Jun 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
I’ve been asked by a lot of people what my favorite race is and why. So for this blog I have picked my favourte five races of the past twelve months.1. Julia Creek Triathlon. Queensland, Australia.This is my favorite race of all time. Its not just a race, it’s a weekend festival in a small country town out the middle of nowhere with real country spirit. The main events include the triathlon, Horse races with a redclaw lunch, Bull ride and a concert that finishes well into Sunday morning.It excites me just writing about this weekend.After registration on race morning all the bikes are placed on a cattle truck and driven out to the water hole, from there we ride back into town and do a couple of laps around the main street to finish the run. Being a sprint race its finished pretty early and by the time you have a shower and something to eat the horse races are about to start. So basically you go from one activity to the next usually with a few beverages in between! A lucky few people...
