Ben Hoffman, Don’t Mess with Texas

Friday 22 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

It’s not often, especially in recent times, that I sit down to compose an Ironman race recap where I have been completely humbled and disappointed. There were some pretty poor races in Kona earlier in my career, but I’ve been very consistent in my ability to prepare properly and execute well over the past few years of racing. more

Friday 22 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

This Saturday marks the 24th edition of the prestigious IRONMAN Lanzarote, held in the Canary Islands and is famous for being one of the toughest courses on the global IRONMAN circuit. The race is known for its Kona likeness: heat, strong winds, and climbing. It seems to be Hawaii’s little sister of Europe. more

Chris McDonald, A Letter to Ironman Texas

Thursday 21 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

Dear Ironman Texas, I wanted to write you this letter and talk about our relationship! When we first started courting, I had so many high hopes for what we would be able to have in terms of a relationship. Things started off very rocky in year one, but I knew deep in my heart we would be able to make it work. After some long talks, year two of our relationship was solid, more

9 Vegan Sports Nutrition Products

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Triathlete.com
Sports nutrition companies are catering to a growing population of plant-based athletes. According to a 2014 Harris Interactive study, approximately 5 percent of the United States population (or 16 million Americans) are vegetarian, with half of those identifying as vegan. Additionally, 33 percent of the population, or over 100 million people, say they choose to eat more vegetarian and vegan meals than in years past. As popularity of a plant-based diet soars, so do sports nutrition options for vegetarian and vegan athletes. In the past, vegan athletes found it challenging to find gels, bars, and chews devoid of animal products. Nether vegetarians or vegans eat meat or fish; however, vegans follow an exclusively plant-based lifestyle, choosing not to eat other animal products such as dairy, eggs, honey or ingredients derived from animal products (such as gelatin or certain amino acids). Today, an abundance of plant-based options exist for athletes looking to reduce or eliminate their...

Tri’d & tested: Zipp 202 Firecrest disc-brake wheels

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: Michael RobsonFor years, Zipp wheels represented the pinnacle of technical innovation, aerodynamics, and speed. Zipp bravely rode the razor’s edge of tough versus light and, often in conjunction with Hed, produced some of the benchmark designs of 21st century cycling. Then a funny thing happened: Zipp seemingly sat on its hands while almost every other wheel manufacturer stepped up with disc-brake and thru-axle compatible designs. As recently as late last year — after Jeremy Powers was seen riding what looked like production-ready hubs — we contacted Zipp to see when consumers could expect dedicated disc-brake wheels. They were conspicuously tight-lipped. It’s apparent now that Zipp has done its homework and is back in the game. Technically, we’re reviewing Zipp’s new 202 disc-brake wheels, but since the rims have changed very little since the Firecrest rim design was introduced, we’re zeroing in on the hubs Zipp has developed for its disc-brake wheelsets. Officially dubbed the...

Balancing life one beer at a time – Omission and my training

Sunday 24 May 2015 Timothy O'Donnell
TO_Omission Triathlon is a tough sport and to have a long career you need some balance in your life. Having a casual drink with friends at the end of a hard training day, or as a celebration after a race helps me keep the sport in perspective, appreciate what I get to do for a living and helps contribute to that balanced life. Recovery is crucial in a long career too, and that is more than physical… it’s also mental. Being able to get into recovery boots, have a beer, watch the playoffs and zone out allows me to step away from triathlon, so when I get back to training the next day I am ready to wrap my head around it all again. Of course on the physical side, with big training comes big caloric needs and a beer at night actually helps replenish those glycogen stores!  At the end of the day a balanced life definitely places me in a positive state of mind. Training and racing while being happy in life correlates to success and for me that comes from enjoying training, life, loved ones and a...

The Importance of Aero

Monday 25 May 2015 Tim
RDodson__IronManMelb15_021 What do fish, F1 cars and fast triathletes all have in common? It’s all about the aero. (Technically, with fish it’s actually about the hydrodynamics, but bear with me) Athletes go to a lot of trouble to reduce drag and increase their aerodynamic efficiency. You may think that some go overboard in the quest to be aero, but as you’ll see, the little things add up. Not everyone can afford to spend a fortune on the latest gear, but there are definitely plenty of things you can do to get more aero and watch your times come down. When it comes to talking aero for triathletes, there’s a lot of stuff out there, both written and on video. The science can get extremely complicated, with talk about rolling resistance, drag coefficients and air density. But I believe there’s a lot to be said for keeping it simple. Instead of getting bogged down in the details, I’m going to strip it back and give you five principles that anyone can apply to lift their performance. They can help you to make more...

Memorial Day

Friday 22 May 2015 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
My incredible sponsor Coeur Sports (check out coeursports.com) wrote me and asked to write a blog on Memorial Day.  Of course the motto of Coeur is heart and courage.  At first I wasn’t sure which way to run with it.  Memorial Day conjures up so many meanings to me it can be difficult to nail down just one.  Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died while serving in our Armed Forces, which is the ultimate use of heart and courage.  When I was younger, it meant eating hamburgers and hotdogs and to celebrate the kick off of summer.  Obviously as a veteran, and one that is getting older at that, it holds a much greater meaning.  I started thinking about where I started my career, as a fresh out of high school showing up for R-Day at West Point.  I thought it would be fitting to memorialize my classmates no longer with us. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you actually start to personally know the people you are honoring. ...

IM Hawaii Race Report 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  Doing my final pre-race ride. The narrow front and deeper rear wheel turned out to be the perfect combo in the wind! Photo by Tessa CapistranoI’ve always loved the Hawaii Ironman. After 10+ years in the sport, I still “buy into” all the hype on many levels.  And the race never disappoints. There is the usual carnage in the pro race. This year we had maybe 25 or 30 girls who could have finished in the Top 10. There was no room for error. Champions were brought down and others emerged.  It was epic. It always is. This is one of my fave pics of the day, Catriona and I in T1. Photo by witsup.comMy expectations going into the race were not huge. I have been around the block a few times and I know enough to know that a season that includes back-to-back Ironmans in May and a big win in August isn’t exactly a perfect set up for Kona. My expectation was simply to go out and do my thing one more time in 2014 fueled by a belief that anything can happen. On race...
