Ospaly & Lehtonen Crowned Euro Champs at Challenge Rimini

Ospaly & Lehtonen Crowned Euro Champs at Challenge Rimini

Monday 25 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

Filip Ospaly (CZE) and Kaisa Lehtonen (FIN) were today crowned the ETU European Half Distance Triathlon Champions at CHALLENGE RIMINI on Italy’s Adriatic Coast. After days of rain, the morning dawned fine with a 1,600 strong field ready to take on CHALLENGE RIMINI’s spectacular course. Among the pros, Italy’s Giulio Molinari was preparing to defend his European title that he gained last year at CHALLENGE MALLORCA, more

Riesler and Degasperi Storm Lanzarote

Sunday 24 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

Extraordinarily tough conditions made this year's edition of IRONMAN Lanzarote a bigger challenge than usual. Italian Alessandro Degasperi and German Diana Riesler took the wins. Strong performances are one way to respond to stormy conditions. Italian Alessandro Degasperi and German Diana Riesler took great victories at the 2015 IRONMAN Lanzarote. The wind was as painful as had been predicted, allowing 1,671 athletes to showcase remarkable fortitude. more

Ben Hoffman, Don’t Mess with Texas

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

Australia names high profile team for ITU World Duathlon Championships

Tuesday 26 May 2015 ITU
SHEEDY RYAN PRES (1280x822) World champions Felicity Sheedy-Ryan, Jacob Birtwhistle and Gillian Backhouse and Olympian Emma Jackson will spearhead a 31-strong Australian team named by Triathlon Australia today for this year’s ITU World Duathlon Championships in Adelaide in October. Birtwhistle (TAS), who won the ITU World Junior duathlon title in Ponteverde last year, will this year step up to the Elite class, skipping the under 23s and join Braeden Jones (NSW) in a small but select Elite men’s team when the South Australian capital hosts the World Championships from October 14-18. The course is a 10km run followed by a 40km bike followed by a final 5km run and will include Elite, Under 23, Junior, Age Group and Paratriathlon duathlons and a community 5km fun run. The high-profile Elite women’s team will be led by 2012 World Duathlon Champion Sheedy-Ryan, who won the title in Nancy in France after winning bronze in Edinburgh in 2010. She will be joined in an all-star Elite women’s team by reigning Under 23 World...

Blog: What’s the triathlon end game?

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Paul Moore
Photo: Kurt HoyIf you’ve never made it to the end of one of my articles, you don’t know that five years ago, my wife Lauren, her friend Steph and I started an energy bar company called Picky Bars. At the time, I was a post-MBA independent consultant and thinking about doing something dumb like becoming a professional triathlete. Lauren and Steph were both professional distance runners, injured, aquajogging, bored out of their minds, and wanted to make me a gluten- and dairy-free energy bar from real-food ingredients that didn’t taste like dirt. The three of us were admittedly “idea people” who had fun “projects” every couple of months. Most fizzled out with our interest and didn’t amount to much. And, to be honest, that’s what I thought Picky Bars would do as well. But something different happened. People liked them. Lauren became obsessed. Steph accidentally told Runner’s World we were starting an energy bar company. So basically we had to do it. We took it at our own slow pace and...

The Crank #76

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Admin
farisrun-1 The Tri world said good bye to the career of 2005 IM World Champ Faris Al Sultan (below). Along the journey we only ever spoke to him once and we found him to be honest, insightful and fun to watch. The smuggler torch now passes along to Tim Reed, get packing! Ironman Lanzarote proved once again to be vying for the hardest Ironman outside of Kona. Crazy heat and conditions had the course showing it’s teeth. So did Alessandro Degasperi and Diana Riesler in winning. The see through finish line was interesting too. (pic Ironman.com) Challenge Rimini is one of the best looking races in the world. Flip Ospaly and Kaisa Lehtonen won the ETU half triathlon Championships. Interesting tweet via Chris Froome (below) after Roger Federer complained of a court invasion by a fan. I can’t recall anyone in the TdF getting stabbed like the Monica Seles incident years ago. However you have to feel for the Tour riders. Imagine going to work and having some dude screaming in your ear to work...

TriathlEATS: Heather Wurtele’s Food Log

Monday 25 May 2015 Susan Lacke
Wurtele2_Nilsen Post by Heather Wurtele (@TeamWurtele), Featured Photo: Nils Nilsen Getty Images. “Because an athlete makes their living with their body, everything they do to or with it, everywhere they take it, and everything they put in it has some consequence.” – Michael Hitchenson Like training itself, some of what you do day in and day out to fill your belly starts to take the form of routine, and doesn’t appear to be anything special. I’ve simply made certain choices for so long now that they’ve become habit. When I am in a big block of training, my main concerns are 1) getting enough nutritive calories and 2) timing my calories intake to maximize my performance in all my training sessions. I put nutritive in italics because that is really the crux of the issue. I could get a lot of calories from french fries dunked in mayonnaise, but there is limited nutritional value there in terms of vitamins and minerals to support my training. Conversely, a big kale salad with all sorts...

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...

Some thoughts before the big day

Thursday 09 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Final prep run on Ali'i Drive. Photo by www.tessacapistrano.ca It really has been one helluva year. My race season started with food poisoning in Monterrey Mexico which wiped out Ironman Los Cabos as well.  Though I know that “these things happen”, the setback hit me mentally harder than it should have. As a mom, I have made sacrifices that involve being away from my daughter and somehow, it seemed like too much. Kona became a distant dream and so I refocused on doing two Ironmans just one week apart in May with the completely unexpected result of bombing on the first one and winning the second one. This is when I really learned that if your head is the right place, anything really is possible. Because I had so many things stacked against me heading into IM Brasil (3 consecutive IM DNFs, tired legs from the week before, etc, etc…) I found it was best just to blank my mind and not think at all. Rather than try to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, I just...

Preparing to fly again

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Good to go at Calgary 70.3 After Ironman Brasil I was really looking forward to some rest. In the previous 8 weeks I had rallied from disappointment, raced 2 Ironmans 8 days apart and won the second one. It was really nice NOT to have a schedule for a couple weeks.  We decided to aim for Ironman Mont Tremblant as my next big race, the North American Ironman Championships. I have heard great things about racing in Tremblant and it would also give me an outside chance of qualifying for the World Champs in Hawaii. I wanted to do two 70.3 races in the lead up and so we chose Vineman and Calgary. This allowed me time for a 4-week training block to prepare for all this. Perfect.  So at the beginning of June, I set to work with the goal of gaining a few watts on the bike before August. Training went smoothly and I continued to benefit from Clint's swim group, including my fave session, our Friday morning swim at Thetis Lake. I did squats...
