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

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!...

Australian Pro To Receive 4-Year Ban For Doping

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
Multi-time 70.3 winner Lisa Marangon makes official statement prior to receiving maximum penalty from ASADA for testing positive for banned PED. Nearly five months after being notified she had tested positive for the banned performance enhancing drug (PED), Ostarine, following her fifth-place finish at Challenge Melbourne in January, Australian pro triathlete Lisa Marangon has issued a precursory statement to Triathlete prior to what is expected to be a maximum ban (four years) issued by the Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority (ASADA) within the next 48 hours (Australian Eastern Standard Time – AEST). The 36-year-old Sydney native was first contacted on March 9 regarding her positive A-sample, and then again in May after her B-sample also came back positive. According to Marangon, who denies any intentional wrongdoing or knowledge of the drug in question, her water bottle was maliciously tampered with during a 30-minute window while her race nutrition was left unattended...

Revbox Erg

Monday 01 Feb 2016 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
This past week I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a Revbox Erg, and so I thought I would give my thoughts on this amazing training tool. I have had a pretty decent trainer the past year which I was pretty happy with but the Revbox takes it to the next level. It is a low inertia trainer. What that means that unlike other trainers which give you some assistance in your pedal stroke this does not. So you have to work hard in every part of the pedal stroke. Through listening to the revbox you can hear if any part of your pedal stroke is weak and can adjust. Just sitting on it for a short time, I felt I was working harder to stabilise my pelvis, and I could really feel my weaker hamstrings really starting to do some work. For me it will be a core part of my cycling programme, specifically targeting some weak points of my cycling. Below I will outline some ways how it could help any age group triathlete.When it comes to cycling in triathlon, the key to success is strength. A...

End of 2015 racing

Wednesday 02 Dec 2015 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
This weekend saw me race my last race of 2015. It wasn't supposed to be my last race, I was planning to race the IM 70.3 in Taupo on December 12th but unfortunately I fell ill just before departing for my race in Sydney and am still battling this virus still with a fever and a very bad cough. I would never advise anyone else to race when sick. These endurance events are never to be taken lightly, but like most people I find it very hard to follow my own good advice. After my DNF in Kona I really didn't want to let anyone down again and it just came down to the fact I care more about letting people down than I do about my own health. So I got through the race and finished in 4th place and actually I was pretty surprised with the splits I achieved which saw me finishing only a few minutes slower than the year before, but now that it is over it is clear to me that I need to listen to my body and give it the break it needs. I started my season on January 9th and have completed 11 (4 full...

Hawaii 2015

Monday 19 Oct 2015 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
This is a blog I'd rather not be writing. Hawaii 2015 was pretty much a disaster as soon as I arrived on the island. But there are many lessons to be learnt and to take away. I had a great build up to this race and really put everything into it this year. I had a great 3 weeks training on the Sunshine Coast, Australia, one of my most favourite places to be in the world. I felt fit, healthy and full of energy. Unfortunately things did not continue as such as soon as I arrived in Hawaii which of course is frustrating. I didn't come to Hawaii to DNF but unfortunately that is what happened. In a very brief nutshell what happened was I arrived in Hawaii and had a reaction to a food. I know the symptoms so it was the inflammation throughout my body, waking up like I had been hit by a bus, swelling especially in my diaphragm, gut issues, breathing difficulties/asthma type symptoms. I haven't had this since I took wheat out my diet, and I was wracking my brains to think if I had accidentally...

Ironman Bintan 70.3

Sunday 23 Aug 2015 GC80 (noreply@blogger.com)
Really so happy to get the win here in Bintan. I've had a great run here with a second in 2013 over full distance, a win last year over the full distance and now a win over the half distance. I love the non wetsuit swim, the hilly bike course and the heat and the humidity. It is also always such a great experience to race here. Beautiful of course but such friendly people, such a nice atmosphere of friendliness, and riding around the island through the villages is a great experience with the cheering children and it is never dull. I really love racing here and of course with the the heat and humidity it is a perfect test before the world champs in Hawaii.The last four weeks or so I have been working under new coach Kristian from Trispecific. I am absolutely loving the change in style. The past few months previous to this I turned myself into a bit of an aerobic machine, my endurance was so good, I felt like I could go forever and an ironman felt short, but the strength and speed was...

MVA Racing: the last four years

Tuesday 17 Sep 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
Over these first four years of devoting myself solely to coaching (still working on getting back to my own racing tho) I've been very fortunate to have had the chance to work with a multitude of talented, driven athletes.  This has resulted in 24 athletes having qualified for the big hula dance in that time and three podium appearances and umeke bowls.  While that seems to be the standard that so many set as the goal to be obtained the fulfillment that I've gotten from it all is far more.  It's the daily interactions with my athletes both locally and around the globe.  The curiosity they have towards self improvement, the elation they experience when success is found and seeing the fruits of their labour laid out before them after a great race.  Having the chance to make a change in people's lives to improve them, to help them achieve their athletic ambitions but also to help them view the world through a different lens.  There's a reason I say my work is...
