Andrew Starykowicz, 70.3 San Juan Champion-Again

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 [Triathlon News]

Yes, we all have highs and lows, what goes up must go down. So when I returned to San Juan, Puerto Rico last week I knew there was only one place to go after winning last year, defend my title and be complacent or lose and nothing is more hateful to this American! more

Hauschildt Heads to Ironman

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 [Triathlon News]

Two-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion Melissa Hauschildt has made a late decision to tackle her first IRONMAN race. The Australian celebrated her 31st birthday this week with the decision to enter Toyota IRONMAN Australia at Port Macquarie in four weeks time. But Hauschildt is not confirming whether the IRONMAN World Championship presented by GoPro is on the schedule yet. She says the defence of her IRONMAN 70.3 world title in Mont-Tremblant is her priority. more

Tri Bike Check: Orbea Ordu M30

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Aaron Hersh
The most technologically advanced bike isn’t necessarily the best. Each individual rider dictates what he or she finds valuable in a tri-bike, and many personal lists do not align with the cutting edge of innovation. Fundamental attributes like ride quality and fit can easily get lost behind flashy nose cones and dramatic aero tubes, but function — not flair—will keep you happy with your tri bike years after rolling it out of the store. Start your search for a tri bike by listing the characteristics that mean the most to you (and by getting a bike fit). Tri bike design has split into many directions, and these four bikes cover the complete range of fit, ride and construction styles to choose from. Suited to the values of road time-triallists with a twist of tri-friendly fit, the Ordu shifts instantaneously and has a mean-looking integrated front end suited to aggressive positions. It jumps at every input—steering or sprinting—and responds with aggression. For a forgiving fit, this bike...

Challenge Roth Announces Strongest Pro Field Ever

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Press Release
On 20 July, Challenge Roth will celebrate “30 Years of Triathlon in Roth” with the strongest field of pro athletes ever seen at the world’s largest long distance triathlon, joined by 5,500 age group athletes and watched by an anticipated 220,000 spectators. Announced at today’s media conference, among the male athletes are Luke McKenzie (AUS) (2nd in Hawaii), Australian top athlete Pete Jacobs (Hawaii winner in 2012), James Cunnama from South Africa (4th in Hawaii), Eneko Llanos from the Basque country, Dirk Bockel from Luxembourg (winner of last year’s DATEV Challenge Roth) and German top athletes Timo Bracht and Nils Frommhold, all of whom will put up a fierce fight for a place on the podium. Luke McKenzie, who was born in Taree/Australia and now lives in California, has won as many as six long-distance competitions so far. A few days before his participation in the world’s biggest long-distance race, the outstanding athlete will celebrate his 33rd birthday, and would give himself...

The Truth About Lactic Acid

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Trevor Connor / VeloNews
©Delly Carr / SportshootWe all remember the gym coach who roared about how you weren’t working until you felt that lactic acid burn. The phrase “lactic acid” is part of our sports lingo. How many times have we heard “gotta clear the lactic acid”? Well, it turns out that the coach was slightly misinformed. More and more, I have endurance athletes asking me the truth about lactic acid: 1) Are lactic acid and lactate different and which one do we have in our bodies? 2) Does lactate have a purpose? There is considerable power behind the lactic acid myths, but the reality is that they are just that — myths. Let’s dispel them now. Does lactic acid exist in humans? According to Professor Matthew Hickey, head of the Human Performance Research Lab at Colorado State University, “The bottom line is, no. There is no lactic acid in human beings.” To explain why, a brief lesson about acids is necessary. Every acid has an alternate base (alkaline) form — a sort of yin and yang. For example, lactate...

Interview with Tim Don: “I will race Ironman this year”

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Norsemen
This weekend Tim Don continued his march towards continued success on the Ironman 70.3 circuit with a win at Ironman 70.3 Brasil, besting Timothy O’Donnell with a time of 3:46:55. The win was sealed by Don executing one of the biggest weapons in the sport, his fearsome run speed and strength. We caught up with Tim for an interview, where he spoke about his most recent win in Brazil, his plans to race Ironman in 2014 and who he thinks would win in a battle between him and Ritchie Nicholls. Check it out here. Hi Tim, congratulations on your recent win. Could you talk us through the race and how you attacked it? Thanks Richard . I had a good swim and was able to sit in the lead group of about 7 athletes in the no wetsuit swim. I had a good T1 and got a good bike position in second for the first 30km but at about 45km, the small group of 3 I was working with got caught by about 7 other athletes. Then Igor (Amorelli) put the hammer down and there where 4 of us left. He pulled away to...

Brett Sutton Blog: What Irritates Me The Most

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Brett Sutton
I was asked to write an article that will have practical use, for keen Age Groupers who want to improve. So I thought, let’s start at the very beginning as the biggest myth is with the swim. I have always campaigned that the teaching of non-swimmers to ‘feel’ the water is the biggest hindrance to full triathlon improvement. We view triathlon as one sport, not three, and our success has come from compromising each individual element to suit the overall performance. You may say that my successes have been with pro athletes, but I would point out we have had outstanding improvements with Age Groupers too and in all cases I changed their view and training of swimming. This is what helps with the Eureka moments of massive improvement. My swim CV is unmatched in triathlon and rarely matched in pure swimming but I can’t make the point that swim training for ‘feel’ and the techniques espoused by swim coaches using the parameters of swim time improvement over 50m or 100m – even 200m – has...

Race Mode

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Hillarybiscay
10174855_10152724593673976_2073982666_n A flight between San Francisco and Tokyo means that I finally have time to blog—nothing like being trapped inside the the metal death box for 10 hours! I thought I should check in because race season has snuck up on me and I’ve had people asking where and how to track the upcoming action. I’ve got some fun –and a bit scary—adventures on tap, but first a little recap: I must say it’s been awhile since I’ve felt so out of “race mode” and I have gone longer than this (since Ultraman in early December) without racing before . . .This year I think the difference has been the all-consuming nature of “work” that, while triathlon-related, usually has nothing to do with facilitating my own race prep. Luckily, though, one of these jobs got me out for a friendly intro back into race mode last weekend at the Tempe Town Lake—site of many fond Ironman Arizona memories. I had the opportunity to do a 4K open water race (open water/ wetsuit action is not something we have out in Tucson!) followed by...

70.3 San Juan Champion – AGAIN!

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 Andrew Starykowicz
CaliBike Yes, we all have highs and lows, what goes up must go down. So when I returned to San Juan, Puerto Rico last week I knew there was only one place to go after winning last year, defend my title and be complacent or lose and nothing is more hateful to this American! I got my biopsies back from my stomach and learned that there is an issue and I am going to need a whole bunch of tests done to figure out what may be causing the illnesses I have experienced over the last few years especially leading into Oceanside 2 weeks ago and Bilbao Triathlon last spring, but we will save all that for May. Yet it has made for some great photography: The problem is that I cannot take the prescribed steriods that “normal” people can take and still race this month at 70.3 San Juan and Wildflower because it takes a month to get cleared for a TUE through USADA. This means HTFU and gut it out. The swim start at San Juan was perfect, I started next to a human missile in the deep water and the rest...

A few words in support of Frank Guinn and Andrew Powell

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 Haley
frank I didn’t know Frank Guinn. But he knew me Or at least the internet version of me, which I like to think is somewhat similar to the real thing. I didn’t know Frank, but I knew of Frank. His coach had mentioned him, and how excited he was to be coaching a firefighter. Just like me, Frank was from Atlanta, a Dynamo Multisport coached athlete. And just like me, Frank was in New Orleans last weekend, excited to race 70.3 miles through the Crescent City. Frank’s wife Kimberly gave the most amazing pre-race speech. She said the last thing Frank would have wanted was for anyone to shed a tear on his behalf. She encouraged us all to race hard for Frank. She told us about the brotherhood of firefighters, and how she saw that same family dynamic in the triathletes standing on that start line. She told us about her brother Andrew, who from his hospital bed, was already making plans to race again. I didn’t know Frank, but I know Frank’s three little girls have an...

Travel with Valentine Lovato

Monday 14 Apr 2014 Amanda Lovato
Arriba!!! #cabo After Valentine was born, I really wanted to commit myself to writing about how our lives are transforming and how Valentine was changing and growing. Finding the time has been a challenge in itself. I felt inspired and had a few minutes…I wanted to share a few thoughts from the past couple of months. Michael and I have been busy growing our different businesses. Michael had a job in Cabo this past March announcing-YOU ARE AN IRONMAN and translating Spanish to English and English to Spanish. For those of you who did not know, ML is fluent in Spanish. He has lived and has studied in Mexico and Spain. In his previous life, he was a High School Spanish teacher. Right now we are taking bets to see if Valentine first words will be in English or Spanish. Michael only speaks Spanish to Valentine. (Her sitter is a native Spanish Speaker who only speaks Spanish to her too). A week in Mexico sounds divine especially if you want to escape snowy and cold Colorado in March. As organized and as...
