Friday 22 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

This Saturday marks the 24th edition of the prestigious IRONMAN Lanzarote, held in the Canary Islands and is famous for being one of the toughest courses on the global IRONMAN circuit. The race is known for its Kona likeness: heat, strong winds, and climbing. It seems to be Hawaii’s little sister of Europe. more

Chris McDonald, A Letter to Ironman Texas

Chris McDonald, A Letter to Ironman Texas

Thursday 21 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

Dear Ironman Texas, I wanted to write you this letter and talk about our relationship! When we first started courting, I had so many high hopes for what we would be able to have in terms of a relationship. Things started off very rocky in year one, but I knew deep in my heart we would be able to make it work. After some long talks, year two of our relationship was solid, more

Lucy Gossage 70.3 Barcelona

Lucy Gossage 70.3 Barcelona

Wednesday 20 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

It’s been two years since I’ve raced a 70.3 properly and I’d kind of forgotten how much fun they can be. Short (relative to ironman), hard (relative to ironman) and done and dusted by lunchtime. What’s not to like? I went into Barcelona 70.3 with no real expectations of a great performance and felt absolutely no pressure to do well. more

Matt Hanson, IMTX North American Champion

Wednesday 20 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

First things first, apologies for the length of my report but this win was a pretty emotional one all round!! I am not going to lie. I REALLY wanted this race. I absolutely love The Woodlands. The local triathlon community has embraced me as one of their own. Since both coaches David Tilbury-Davis and Tim Floyd live in The Woodlands, I spend quite a bit of time training there. I took full advantage of this for the North American Championships. more

Paul Hawkins set to start at The Bastion

Friday 22 May 2015 Norsemen
Professional triathlete Paul Hawkins is the latest elite racer to sign up to the Castle Triathlon Series and will be racing the toughest event on their fixture list – The Bastion iron-distance triathlon at Hever Castle, Kent on 12th July 2015. Hawkins will be joining up to 200 other triathletes to take on one of the toughest one-day fitness challenges in the world, a 3.8km swim, 180km tough bike course and a full marathon to finish and complete the triathlon. Paul Hawkins will no doubt start as one of the favourites, having won races of this distance in the UK and raced on the Ironman and XTERRA circuit across Europe. He has a reputation for performing well on tough courses and they don’t come any tougher than that at The Bastion in the UK so he is expected to do well. Chief rival for the title that was won last year by Fraser Cartmell (in a course record time of 9:56:54) will be local professional Darren Jenkins. The pair will be fighting it out for the prestigious title and trophy...

Stress tested: Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 clincher wheelset

Friday 22 May 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: Brad Kaminski | VeloNews.comWhen our sister publication VeloNews tested the Mavic Cosmic Carbone 40 wheels last September, they didn’t do all that well. In fact, they got beat out by a number of competitors, both in the wind tunnel and on the road. But we didn’t stop riding them. In fact, we ended up putting in more than 2,500 miles on the CC40 to date. And in spite of our VeloLab test, we really grew to like these carbon clinchers. The CC40 was unveiled about two years ago as an antidote to the woes that carbon clinchers have suffered over the years. The carbon rims actually sport an aluminum skeleton that acts as a heat sink, effectively keeping the rims from overheating. Right off the bat, the braking performance was noticeably good with these new rims. VeloNews’ Caley Fretz rode the wheels at Mavic’s product launch two years ago in Nice, France, and said they were among the best carbon clinchers he ever had the pleasure of stopping on. There was no heat-induced fade. Power...

60 minute session: Force & surge bike session

Friday 22 May 2015 Paul Moore
hoto: Rena Schild / Shutterstock.comEvery Friday we’ll feature a different coach’s workout you can complete in 60 min (or less!). This week’s bike workout comes from USAT Level I coach Maria Simone of No Limits Endurance. “This workout is designed to help athletes work on force, as well as recovery from hard efforts to settle into steady aerobic-based efforts,” Simone says. “For example, mid-race an athlete might need a quick surge to pass another cyclist, or to take off after a tight turn. The accelerations are designed to help work on the force needed for those types of efforts. More broadly, improving force also helps athletes when they move to sessions designed more specifically for power or muscular endurance.” Warm-up 10 minutes easy 3×30 seconds high cadence sprint, 30 seconds recovery 2 minutes easy Main Set 10 minutes at 75% of functional threshold power (FTP), or 80–85% of lactate threshold heart rate (LTHR), with a cadence of 85–95 RPM (as you would hold in a race) 5 minutes...

IM Hawaii Race Report 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  Doing my final pre-race ride. The narrow front and deeper rear wheel turned out to be the perfect combo in the wind! Photo by Tessa CapistranoI’ve always loved the Hawaii Ironman. After 10+ years in the sport, I still “buy into” all the hype on many levels.  And the race never disappoints. There is the usual carnage in the pro race. This year we had maybe 25 or 30 girls who could have finished in the Top 10. There was no room for error. Champions were brought down and others emerged.  It was epic. It always is. This is one of my fave pics of the day, Catriona and I in T1. Photo by witsup.comMy expectations going into the race were not huge. I have been around the block a few times and I know enough to know that a season that includes back-to-back Ironmans in May and a big win in August isn’t exactly a perfect set up for Kona. My expectation was simply to go out and do my thing one more time in 2014 fueled by a belief that anything can happen. On race...

Some thoughts before the big day

Thursday 09 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Final prep run on Ali'i Drive. Photo by www.tessacapistrano.ca It really has been one helluva year. My race season started with food poisoning in Monterrey Mexico which wiped out Ironman Los Cabos as well.  Though I know that “these things happen”, the setback hit me mentally harder than it should have. As a mom, I have made sacrifices that involve being away from my daughter and somehow, it seemed like too much. Kona became a distant dream and so I refocused on doing two Ironmans just one week apart in May with the completely unexpected result of bombing on the first one and winning the second one. This is when I really learned that if your head is the right place, anything really is possible. Because I had so many things stacked against me heading into IM Brasil (3 consecutive IM DNFs, tired legs from the week before, etc, etc…) I found it was best just to blank my mind and not think at all. Rather than try to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, I just...

Preparing to fly again

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Good to go at Calgary 70.3 After Ironman Brasil I was really looking forward to some rest. In the previous 8 weeks I had rallied from disappointment, raced 2 Ironmans 8 days apart and won the second one. It was really nice NOT to have a schedule for a couple weeks.  We decided to aim for Ironman Mont Tremblant as my next big race, the North American Ironman Championships. I have heard great things about racing in Tremblant and it would also give me an outside chance of qualifying for the World Champs in Hawaii. I wanted to do two 70.3 races in the lead up and so we chose Vineman and Calgary. This allowed me time for a 4-week training block to prepare for all this. Perfect.  So at the beginning of June, I set to work with the goal of gaining a few watts on the bike before August. Training went smoothly and I continued to benefit from Clint's swim group, including my fave session, our Friday morning swim at Thetis Lake. I did squats...

The Win, The Double and everything else

Saturday 31 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  The signs were there. They’ve been there for many months now. The signs in training that I was ready to have a really fast race. And it all came together in the most unexpected way. After the disappointment of Ironman Los Cabos in March, Clint and I went back to the drawing board to figure a few things out. I had a great training block in Tucson in April and a solid race at St. Croix 70.3. I wanted to try doing a “dirty double” again (I'd done one in 2011) largely because i thought I could do a better job than I did last time and because it was a challenge. In both training and racing I find that if I am feeling tired and unmotivated and don’t want to do a session, it often feels really good to actually make the session harder. That might sound counter-intuitive, but it works most of the time. I discovered this little trick about  4-5 years ago when I set out to do hill reps at the Observatory. I was supposed to do 4 repeats. On the way there, I was...

Muncie 70.3: An Indiana Win!

Saturday 14 Jul 2012 Kelly H Williamson (noreply@blogger.com)
Life is full of uncertainties. We can have the best plan of attack; and things may go right as planned for awhile. Then we hit a road bump; an unexpected detour. It’s natural to be frustrated, angry and ask questions. But it’s these times in life that force us to keep moving forward; prevent us from becoming complacent, and constantly motivate us to stay on our game and make us appreciate why we do what we do. At the time the road blocks suck, but in hindsight, think they’re an essential part of life. I headed to Muncie 70.3 with a fire in my belly. It was no secret that the previous race (Rev 3 Quassy) left me in the aforementioned state; confused, frustrated and with some discontent. Sure maybe I was not firing on all cylinders that day, but bottom line was I got it handed to me and I didn’t like it. That led Derick and I into talking about ‘what next’ before Muncie, and we decided upon my escaping Austin to ride my bike. The goal was open roads, lots of climbing and many miles....
