Potts and Piampiano Tops in “The Big Easy”

Monday 20 Apr 2015 [Triathlon News]

Andy Potts (USA) led the men out of the water with Eric Limkemann (USA), Matt Charbot (USA) and Drew Scott (USA) just seconds back. Tim Reed (AUS), one of the pre-race favorites, was accompanied by Mark Bowstead (NZL) over a minute behind as they ran into T1. Coming into T2 Chrabot and Potts dismounted their bikes together with Canadians Trevor Wurtele and Cody Beals following a minute later. more

Braden Currie wins XTERRA Asia-Pac Champs

Saturday 18 Apr 2015 [Triathlon News]

After a wet Friday that soaked pre-riders and runners, the clouds and rain gave way to bright sunshine Saturday morning and near-perfect racing conditions, except of course, for the slick roots and muddy trails that the rain left behind. It turned intermediate routes into technical tracts and clean racing kits into mud-splattered ensembles. more

Dumbbell complex training for faster running

Tuesday 21 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockRunning faster race times requires more than just running further or choosing the right shoe. The scientific literature supports the addition of heavy weight lifting and explosive jump training to endurance running training as a way to improve running performance (Beattie et al., 2014). Strength and plyometric (a.k.a. jump-type exercises) training can improve neuromuscular efficiency (e.g. brain muscle communication ability), increase force production capacity, delay the recruitment of fast twitch muscle fibers and help convert plastic fast-twitch type IIx fibers into fatigue resistant type IIa fibers (Ronnestad & Mujika, 2013). The benefits to running are expressed as improved running economy, running speed and time to exhaustion (Beattie et al., 2014). Time-Efficient Training As little “free-time” tends to be available to the average runner, juggling runs, work, friends, family—and now strength and jump training—can be difficult. Enter dumbbell...

Buyer’s guide: Triathlon bikes

Tuesday 21 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Underneath a new paint scheme, the foundations of what has made the P5 one of the fastest triathlon bikes since its release remains unchanged. Shimano’s top-of-the-line Dura-Ace Di2 electronic gear system provides near-flawless shifting, while hydraulic Magura brakes give all the stopping power you could want. The whole package rolls on HED Jet Plus wheels, a great combination of aero performance and practical benefits that make this set equally suited to training and racing. The unique BBright bottom bracket standard helps to give the P5 an edge when it comes to stiffness, while helpful additions like integrated nutrition box mounts on the top tube add to the bike’s overall appeal. 1 of {count} Back to Start View Larger Image.Scott Plasma Team Issue Finely integrated front-end pieces are the most attention-grabbing element of Scott’s newest super-bike; fit may be its most important. The stem-and-aerobar system hides the front brake, blends with a proprietary...

What to do when you go off course on race day

Tuesday 21 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: ShutterstockIt was the biggest race of Jason Weaver’s life, and he was lost. On the first day of Ultraman Florida 2015, a three-day stage race covering 321.6 miles, Weaver blazed out of the swim leg and hopped on his bike in transition with laser-like focus. A little too much focus, Weaver later admitted: “I became a little overly aggressive coming out of transition. I had studied the maps multiple times and knew there was an out-and-back by the airport soon after transition. With my head down and admittedly going too hard to start, I blew past that turn and took the next turn off the main road, which was also part of the actual course.” About 20 miles into the bike ride, Weaver realised he had not seen his crew since leaving transition. With equal parts worry and anger, Weaver assumed his crew had gotten lost and he would not be able to restock fuel for the next section of the bike leg. Suddenly, he had a moment of clarity: “I was riding through this neighbourhood, and started...

Video: Tubeless / tight road tyre removal

Tuesday 21 Apr 2015 Paul Moore
As part of the ‘Ask a Mechanic’ series, Greg explains the trick to remove tight fitting tubeless road tyres. This same technique can be applied to non-tubeless road tyres, and mountain tyres as well. Using this technique will save you time and prevent you from breaking tyre levers.

5th title at Challenge Wanaka

Saturday 19 Jan 2013 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
Yes this report is up super duper fast. This is because we will be moving back to the caravan soon without a lot of internet access. It has been so good being put up at the Alpine Resort in Wanaka. Benji has his own room for the first time since May 2012!!! We are starting to feel like a normal family, but then back to the caravan. The building of our new house is coming along nicely here in Wanaka and in April we will be able to move in and be normal again for a while at least!! This was a very emotional victory for me. On Sunday night I came down with a stomach bug and I was thinking oh no if this is as bad as the one post Challenge Henley, pre Kona (where I couldn't eat for 5 days and became so weak) then there is no way I can possibly race. Luckily I bounced back a lot quicker (probably because I wasn't recovering from an ironman and adjusting to 12 hr time difference jetlag). I was bad on Monday, on Tuesday I did some light training but not able to eat anything but bananas, on...

2012 Year in Review

Thursday 10 Jan 2013 Admin
TO and Rinny With the racing season wrapped up and the holidays on the way I wanted to take the opportunity to sum up the year for all those who have supported and cheered me on. In a nutshell, 2012 has been fantastic! While the racing season was great and highlighted by some nice victories and strong performances, the real highlight of my year comes from my recent engagement to Rinny. After being together for several years, I finally stopped dragging my feet and popped the question. We are both very excited and with the wedding planned for next fall we will have to race well in 2013 to pay for it! My 2012 season was one of new approaches. While the prior year had been strong, my entry into Ironman racing left me reaching at the end of the season and questioning what I could do to improve. One source of questions was my diet, and the discovery of a gluten sensitivity led to drastically improved nutrition. I also changed my approach to training, being a little smarter in terms of when and how much...

No Easy Streets in Idaho

Wednesday 04 Jul 2012 Admin
TOB&W I just finished a two-week racing block in Idaho with Ironman 70.3 Boise and Ironman Coeur d’Alene (CdA), the great state of Idaho made sure to make it a challenge! While I don’t feel either race was my best showing I was still able to walk away from this block with two podiums, a 3rd in Boise and 2nd in CdA. Podiums are great but what I really took away from the Gem State was great lessons in toughness, both physical and mental. I came into the Boise 70.3 with great form. After some successful results early in the season I was able to get in a great Ironman training block before the 70.3 to prepare for CdA two weeks later. I arrived to a beautiful day in Boise, mid-70s and sunshine. While the swim water was cold (57 degrees) the rest of the course was beautiful with a challenging bike and festive run course located downtown. It seemed to have the making of the perfect race, that is before the not so perfect storm approached. Boise has the unique quality of a noon start time, but that...

Ironman 70.3 US Championships, Big Wins Hurt More!

Wednesday 04 Apr 2012 Admin
IM70.3WC What an unbelievable weekend in Galveston, TX at the Ironman 70.3 US Championships. After a 2nd and 3rd place finish the last two years in Texas I finally brought home the win and claimed the title of US Pro Champion! With the one of the strongest fields in 70.3 history, the presence of cycling legend Lance Armstrong and a nail biting late race battle for the win this is truly one of my most memorable moments in the sport. After spending two weeks in Tucson in between races I arrived in Galveston on Thursday feeling great and excited to race. A disappointing ride here last year left me 8 minutes behind Chris Lieto off the bike and unable to defend my title as US Champion. Memories of the race have lingered in my head over the year, leaving me hungry to come back and redeem myself in Galveston. I knew this was going to be an exciting race and a great challenge when I saw the caliber of the field. Two time Ironman 70.3 World Champion Michael Raelert, the only athlete to beat Michael in...

No Guts, No Glory (oh yah and No Gluten!)

Thursday 22 Mar 2012 Admin
TOIMSJ This weekend marked the start of my 2012 season and my first race as a gluten free athlete at the Ironman 70.3 San Juan. I am proud to report I successfully defended my title and brought home the win! After a roller coaster year in 2011 I was elated to get right back on track in San Juan. In early January I discovered that the health issues I experienced in 2011 (particularly in the 2nd half of the season) might have been related to a gluten sensitivity problem. I made the switch to gluten free and immediately began to feel “normal” again in everyday life, particularly in training. While it hasn’t been easy for a guy who absolutely loves treats, I was able to adopt the change successfully. After learning of the issue I headed out to Noosa, Australia to train for the winter. I was excited to find gluten free options EVERYWHERE! For the next two months I was able to train happy and healthy in Noosa and was ready to start racing. I headed out from Australia back to the States the Monday...
