Legendary Kiwi star gets top IRONMAN billing

Tuesday 03 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

The remarkable career of Cameron Brown could have another twist after he was awarded top seeding for the 31st Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain IRONMAN New Zealand. The 42-year-old has already carved out a special niche in the sport. He is the only person to win the same IRONMAN race 10 times, which he achieved at the Taupo event in 2011. Last year he became the oldest male to win an IRONMAN event when he triumphed after a three-man battle on the run in Cairns. more

Terenzo @ Challenge Dubai

Terenzo @ Challenge Dubai

Sunday 01 Mar 2015 [Triathlon News]

What a day here at Challenge Dubai and to come away with the Victory at the first race of the triple crown series is an unbelievable satisfaction, especially considering where things were at with my body a few months ago. The wind picked up big time on race day blowing over 30km per hour on shore. This made for a rough swim and a tough second half of the bike, it also made the flat run a lot more challenging. more

Athletes compete at the 2014 Ironman Arizona. Photo: Rocky Arroyo/EndurapixThe half-iron distance Soma Triathlon, which has been produced by Life Time Fitness, will be Ironman 70.3 Arizona going forward. Ironman announced today that the first Ironman 70.3 Arizona will take place on Oct. 18 in Tempe. The event will replace the Soma Triathlon, which was first produced by Red Rock Co. and then Life Time Fitness. The race has been a staple on the Arizona triathlon schedule, with many Ironman Arizona participants choosing to compete as a warm-up for the longer event. The swim and run courses—like Ironman Arizona—take place in and around Tempe Town Lake. For the past few years, there has been chatter among Phoenix-area triathletes about the possibility of a less loopy bike course, but it appears the 56-mile leg will still feature three laps within the City of Tempe. Ironman 70.3 Arizona is a part of the partnership between Ironman and Life Time Fitness that also includes the...

31st Running Of Ironman New Zealand Set For Saturday

Tuesday 03 Mar 2015 Bethany Mavis
Kessler on the way to the win in 2014. Photo: Dell CarrThis weekend, the 31st running of Ironman New Zealand will feature a pro race with returning champions and international fields. The event, which has been in the town of Taupo on New Zealand’s North Island since 1999, is known for its incredible scenery. It starts with a freshwater lake swim in Lake Taupo followed by a two-loop bike that passes through forests and a spectator-crowded three-loop run course. The Men’s Race Highlighting the men’s professional start list is 10-time (yes, 10) Ironman New Zealand champion and Kiwi Cam Brown. He last won the race in 2011, and, at age 42, he’s nearing the end of his career, but he’s been on the podium at this race every year for 15 years, so we might see an incredible 11th win. His toughest competition will come from countryman and 2008 Ironman 70.3 world champ Terenzo Bozzone, who’s fresh off of an impressive win over a deep pro field at the half-iron-distance Challenge Dubai last...

When It’s Great

Tuesday 03 Mar 2015 Andrew Starykowicz
I often get asked what my best race to date has been. There is no one major standout, there has been quite a few out of my skin performances over the years. In the beginning there were a lot of memorable races and even more nightmares, but it is more fun to share the dreamy days. The first had to be my first triathlon in which I had no clue what to do, but I did it well finishing 3rd Overall just in front of some guy named Adam Zucco and set a staple for years to come, crush the swim and bike and limit the losses on the run. I started to train and then I did my first Chicago triathlon in which I thrived on the large swim meet feel of waiting hours for your event then going out and winning my age group was a feeling that stoked a fire that I had had many times in swimming. After winning my age group at such a big race it became about overall results. I had a lot of good races slowly improving but the next memorable race was 2004 ITU Age Group World Champs when I upset the USAT...

Equality for Female Pros: A personal note

Monday 02 Mar 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
 In recent months gender equality in sport has become a hot topic in the media. Feminism is in its 4th or 5th wave and I no longer feel a tinge of embarrassment as i look at my shoes and mutter, "ah yeah... my PhD is in Women's History." Our culture is changing.  So as i sit down to write the 3rd blog in my series on Equality in Triathlon for witsup.com i realize that the pride that i once had to be part of a sport that whole-heartedly embraced equality from the outset has been tarnished. I am deeply disappointed in us. (For those who haven't seen my posts on equality, Part I can be found here, IIa here, and IIb here. ) First off, I am deeply disappointed in the pros for voting against equality last August. I believe that gender equality is something we should uphold regardless of the cost to ourselves and our income. We failed ourselves and those coming up behind us.  We did not do the right thing. And i am as guilty as anyone else of this. When i...

Heart of an Awl, All of my Heart. 3rd Place IM CDA

Tuesday 22 Jul 2014 Ben Hoffman
Screen shot 2014-07-02 at 9.30.17 PM     Returning to defend an Ironman title is a rare and special experience. Winning one takes so much work, luck, and support, and returning in form to properly defend requires even more I find. Fortunately for me, I came prepared this year, having done the work I felt was necessary in training, diet, recovery, mental preparation, and creating a support network that was surely unrivaled in this northern Idaho town. Between my lovely girlfriend, parents, the Hutter family, Zoot Sports, local friends and fans, my coach, and my massage therapist, I had built a cocoon that put me in the proper place to emerge as a contender on race day. In addition, training partners, coaches, extended family, and all other sponsors played a critical role in my lead-up to race day, and I thank them for such dedicated support.   So I toed the line with a clear mind and no excuses, just a hunger for the elation that comes with an Ironman win. Admittedly, I was spoiled a bit, having won 3 of...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...
