What’s Up With Daniela Ryf’s “Ballet” Bike Shoes?

Friday 27 Feb 2015 Jené Shaw
Challenge Dubai winner and current Ironman 70.3 world champion Daniela Ryf sported some interesting ballet-like cycling shoes during today’s race that raised some eyebrows. As Ryf’s coach Brett Sutton wrote in a post on Trisutto.com recapping her race, “The bike innovations with Dani are a work in progress as we look to develop her bike leg. Not to be able to cycle faster [most would agree she’s already pretty solid in this area] but to be able to run faster off the bike. So the new ‘ballet’ shoes, which were noticed by many, are part of the process of helping a great deal in this area. They also look pretty cool.” Behind the minimalistic shoes, called the biomxc2, is Götz Heine, an innovator and chiropractor known for popularizing the mid-foot cleat position. He gives a short explanation of the shoes here. In an interview done in 2011, Hines explains the origin of his shoes and the pros and cons of a mid-foot position. Furthering his beliefs about the benefits was the outcome of a...

Moffatt, Densham Both Healthy And Ready To Race

Erin Densham earned bronze in London. Photo: Delly Carr/Triathlon.orgOlympic medalists Emma Moffatt and Erin Densham have been fixtures on Australia’s triathlon team and both are now intent on returning to the Olympics in Rio next year after overcoming significant health challenges. Neither athlete was at her best last year, both believe they are back on track now. Dual world champion Moffatt had an unusually off race at last year’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games and revealed yesterday that she was struggling at the time with the effects of polycystic ovarian syndrome (a hormone imbalance that raises insulin levels and causes weight gain). Moffatt was diagnosed before the Games but the condition was not under control when she finished seventh in Glasgow. Since then she has cut sugars out of her diet and restored her equilibrium. “I have found the right balance now,’’ she said yesterday, at the launch of the Gold Coast world series race on April 11. “Last year my body went crazy, I was...

Bontrager Unveils New Wheel Lineup

Friday 27 Feb 2015 Triathlete.com
The Bontrager Aeolus 9 tubeless-ready clincher has a rim depth of 90mm, weighs 1,812g and retails for $3,000. All Aeolus wheels retain their D3 rim shape but receive a wider internal width of 19.5mm. Photo provided by Bontrager.Wider, lighter and tubeless ready. Those are the main upgrades to Bontrager’s new collection of Aeolus race wheels. With four rim depths available ranging from 30mm to 90mm and two disc-compatible models, every cyclist should be covered for every possible course profile. Aeolus wheels are now 2mm wider with an internal width of 19.5mm between the bead hooks to increase rider comfort and control. The wheels retain their D3 shape, which aims to reduce drag at the front, tire-leading side and the rear, rim-leading side. Despite the extra width, each model is lighter, shaving up to 110 grams off the previous set. The tubeless-ready Aeolus 7 (70mm rim depth) and 9 (90mm rim depth) models are of most interest to triathletes with the decreased rolling resistance and...

How Do I Tame My Hunger?

Friday 27 Feb 2015 Triathlete.com
Q: I recently upped my triathlon training to 10–12 hours per week, and now I’m starving all the time. I eat three meals, plus snacks, including a snack before workouts. What can I do to tame my hunger? A: For some athletes, perpetual hunger can be attributed to an inadequate intake of overall calories, or missing meals or snacks, but that doesn’t seem to be the case for you. More likely in this case, your hunger can be traced back to an imbalance in macronutrient intake (carbs, protein, fats) versus needs. Do you think you might be eating fewer carbs, protein or fat than you need? If you keep track of everything you eat and drink for a few days, you just might be able to figure it out. After keeping your “food log,” review what you have eaten. You should see per day: - At least three servings of quality protein (lean meat, eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, or vegetarian bean/grain-based dishes) - 5–9 servings of “good fats” (avocado, nuts, seeds, olives,...

Micha startet stark ins Jahr 2015

Friday 27 Feb 2015 Julia Böttner
Platz 2Zweiter Platz bei der Challenge Dubai – Harte Bedingungen und ein schneller Rennverlauf prägen Saisondebüt  – Neuseeländer Terenzo Bozzone gewinntRostock. Mit einem starken Ergebnis bei der Challenge Dubai ist das Team Raelert-Brothers in das Wettkampfjahr 2015 gestartet. Michael Raelert lief nach einem harten Rennen als Zweiter ins Ziel und knüpfte damit fast nahtlos an seine Erfolgsserie aus dem vergangenen Herbst an. In 3:42:49 Stunden belegte er Rang zwei knapp hinter dem Neuseeländer Terenzo Bozzone, der das Premierenrennen in Dubai in 3:41:45 Stunden gewann. "Natürlich hätte ich sehr gerne gewonnen, aber Terenzo war heute einfach noch ein Stückchen besser", sagte Michael Raelert nach dem Zieleinlauf, "meinen herzlichen Glückwunsch an ihn, er hat die Bedingungen am besten im Griff gehabt." Der Schweizer Manuel Küng belegte in 3:45:39 Stunden Rang drei. Bei starkem Wind wurde die Erstauflage der Challenge Dubai bereits beim Schwimmen zu einem anspruchsvollen Unterfangen....

Raelert-Brothers fahren auf Swiss Side ab

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...
