Triple Crown Series starts this weekend with Challenge Dubai

Friday 27 Feb 2015 Trizone
26 February 2015 – The focus turns to the Middle East this weekend for the inaugural Challenge Dubai on Friday 27 and the event has drawn out a million dollar field and triathlon royalty. As the first race in the Triple Crown Series encompassing Challenge Dubai, Challenge Oman and Challenge Bahrain, which is offering the male and female athlete that wins all three events a guaranteed USD 1 million dollars. Spain’s Javier Gomez has lodged notice of his intention to become triathlon’s first million-dollar man but the names standing in his way are plenty. The powerhouse German Michael Raelert is just one of the players that could unhinge the world champion’s plans as could his countryman Ivan Rana. “I’ve been in training camp at Fuerteventura and prepared well for Dubai, I am looking forward to the race and what I can do,” said Raelert. The Australian’s are coming in force and although Luke McKenzie, Pete Jacobs are more suited to the long distance are still chances along with the...

3 Virtual Training Options

Thursday 26 Feb 2015 Triathlete.com
Forget boring trainer sessions—these three “gamification” options will push you harder and make cold-weather training more entertaining. Depending on where you live, you may be facing unfriendly training conditions for weeks leading up to your first spring race. These virtual training options will add an element of game-like fun to your winter sessions. 1. Strava If you haven’t been using this popular training site yet, now’s the time to experience what all your training buddies have been talking about. It’s the perfect place to track your mileage and measure fitness gains without having to put effort into uploading data (simply hit start and stop on your phone). Plus, it’s a social media gateway to see how your friends or pros (such as Jesse Thomas) are training and in turn get motivated to get out there. Make it more fun: Each month you can join an existing challenge, such as the Strava Climbing Challenge, where you attempt to climb the cumulative elevation of Mount Everest in 20...

Inaugural TOUGHMAN Florida Debuts in March

Thursday 26 Feb 2015 Tjnick
toughman-florida The inaugural event of the new national half iron distance national TOUGHMAN Series, TOUGHMAN Florida, will take place on March 15, 2015 at Lake Manatee State Park in Bradenton, Florida. The TOUGHMAN Half starts at 7 am on March 15. The TOUGH Kid's event starts at 9 am on March 14. The vision of the event is to focus on providing the best possible athlete race day experience, in a fun, friendly, family-focused environment. To that end, Lake Manatee State Park was chosen as the event site. The park's location 5 miles east of metropolitan Sarasota / Bradenton makes it easily accessible from Tampa / St. Petersburg. It also makes it an ideal location for an "Escape from Winter" triathlon for those living in the Northeastern United States. The event is focusing on the athlete in several ways: • Two loop swim course to provide better monitoring of the athletes and allow families to see their athlete more frequently • Two loop bike course to make water bottle exchange and...

Dispatch: Bye-Bye Byline

Thursday 26 Feb 2015 Triathlete.com
I’m taking a different tact with this week’s Dispatch–namely, to let you know that with this final column I say bye-bye to my byline on Triathlete.com and in Triathlete magazine. I’ve had the pleasure of serving as a contributor to Triathlete since 2008, when I started as a bright-eyed newbie blogger, eager to marry my passion for creative writing with my love of all things swim, bike and run. Apparently readers (or at least my editors) enjoyed my work, as my input evolved over time into the ultimate gig: freelance editor at large. The experiences this role has afforded me have bordered on unbelievable. I’ve traveled to and come to love and feel at home in far-flung parts of the world, some of which I previously couldn’t pinpoint on a map: Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, the Philippines, Bahrain, Costa Rica, Australia, New Zealand and a tiny town in Germany called Roth that especially stole my heart. I’ve met, befriended, interviewed and raced alongside everyone from professional athletes...

Raelert-Brothers fahren auf Swiss Side ab

Thursday 26 Feb 2015 Julia Böttner
Neuer PartnerNeuer Partner für Team Raelert-Brothers – Rostocker setzen ab sofort auf Laufräder des Schweizer Herstellers  – Überzeugende Produkte einer starken jungen MarkeRostock. Die Raelert-Brothers starten am Freitag bei der Challenge Dubai mit einem neuen Partner in die Saison 2015. Erstmals wird Michael Raelert bei dem Mitteldistanzrennen in den Arabischen Emiraten auf die „Hadron“-Aero-Laufräder des Schweizer Unternehmens Swiss Side vertrauen. „Wir sind sehr glücklich über diese neue Partnerschaft”, sagen Andreas und Michael Raelert. Die beiden Rostocker haben vor wenigen Tagen einen Zweijahresvertrag mit Swiss Side unterzeichnet, weil sie von der Qualität der Produkte überzeugt sind. „Für Triathleten sind Eigenschaften wie Aerodynamik, Bremsverhalten, Gewicht, Laufruhe und Steifigkeit bei den Laufrädern extrem wichtig“, sagen die Raelert-Brothers, „die Laufräder von Swiss Side erfüllen diese Ansprüche in höchstem Maße.“ In neutralen Tests unabhängiger Experten haben die...

Time to call it a day...

Friday 05 Apr 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (Jonathan Hotchkiss)
Given that my last race was Auckland 70.3 at the end of January I appreciate that this is long overdue. Since then other priorities have been keeping me busy and the enthusiasm to write this hasn’t really been there… It is with a sad but content heart that I’ve decided to retire from racing triathlon; at any level for now at least, but certainly for good as a ‘Pro’ (in the loosest sense of the word – more on that later). Auckland was the final “test” to see what condition my body was in and what kind of performance level I was able to achieve with the heart, lungs and legs that have served me so well for nearly a decade in triathlon. Sadly though, the answer I got was a very clear “no” in terms of reaching anything like or beyond the levels I’ve seen in the past. I’m simply not able to compete at the world class level anymore… not even close! Having finally got to the bottom of my health issues, allergies and such I had strung together a very strong and solid 5 months of training under...

70.3 Switzerland - Fed up with feeling fragile

Friday 15 Jun 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Jonathan Hotchkiss)
Training leading into Switzerland 70.3 had in general, been going really well. Some great, solid sessions had been logged and both Tom (my coach) and I were looking forward to progressing in terms of result in my next 70.3 of the season.Race morning arrived grey and damp but nothing too bad for us Brits. The only surprise for me was just how many Pro's there were lining up on the start line... Nearly 100! As the start gun went a pretty hectic and rough first 500m then ensued but I felt ok as things settled down and was happy with where I appeared to be (2nd main pack I thought). I stayed there until about 300m from the end where I seemed to drop off the back for some reason; I didn't loose too much time though and by the time I was through transition and on to my VO2 Victory TT I'd caught up the guys just ahead.We all settled in after the first 5km or so and I tried to stick to my planned wattage goal that Tom and I had discussed. It was however, harder to do that it should have been,...

Majorca 70.3 Race report

Wednesday 16 May 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Jonathan Hotchkiss)
There’s something very amusing about travelling to a race on a 6:30am flight, all concerned about compression, hydration and stretching whilst half the passengers are already getting boozed for a stag or hen do. Powerbar drink or double vodka… hmm?!The season proper (post the San Juan 70.3 test race) kicked off for me at the 2nd 70.3 Majorca and I was not only looking forward to the race, but just to get some warm sun on my back. My girlfriend Jen had also travelled out with me (and organised travel/accommodation for us) so short though the trip was, it was exciting to be heading to the beautiful port of Alcudia for the race.I knew the course from a previous training trip back in 2008 and was looking forward to a hard fought race in a big and strong men’s pro filed that included the current Ironman distance WR holder, Michael Raelert. Everything leading up to the race had gone well (ignoring the previous weeks food poisoning) and my coach and I were very happy with where we were at...

Thames Turbo Sprint Race 1

Monday 16 Apr 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Jonathan Hotchkiss)
After San Juan 70.3 a couple of weeks ago, we’d (my coach Tom Bennet) and I had sat down to talk about what it meant for the first main goal of the season, Ironman South Africa. We decided that one good way to check up again on the body would be another short race such as the first Thames Turbo Sprint, which would be two weeks before IM SA, on the Easter Bank Holiday Monday. These races are local to me and always fantastically well organised by Thames Turbo Tri club. They offer a great way for novices to dip their toe into the water (literally speaking, in the nice and warm Hampton Lido swim) as well as attracting plenty of local high calibre athletes too. I’d raced it at the same time last year too and won, so I’d have a great marker against which to compare my race this year.It was a pretty cold and drizzly morning, but with me going in the 2nd wave of the race for the 426m swim, things had warmed up a little… at least that’s what I convinced myself of before the start. I was 7th to...
