Ironman Maastricht Gruelling triathlon appeals to Bas Diederen

Friday 29 Jul 2016 [Triathlon News]

The second Ironman Maastricht—Limburg, which will start and finish in Maastricht on 31 July 2016, will be every bit as gruelling as the first one last year. “That goes for both the bike course and the run course,” says the reigning men’s winner after his first course inspection today. “The organisers may have scrapped the steep climb up Cauberg Hill, but tackling Côte de Hallembaye twice is quite a challenge, not to mention running up St Pietersberg four times.” more

Australian Pro To Receive 4-Year Ban For Doping

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
Multi-time 70.3 winner Lisa Marangon makes official statement prior to receiving maximum penalty from ASADA for testing positive for banned PED. Nearly five months after being notified she had tested positive for the banned performance enhancing drug (PED), Ostarine, following her fifth-place finish at Challenge Melbourne in January, Australian pro triathlete Lisa Marangon has issued a precursory statement to Triathlete prior to what is expected to be a maximum ban (four years) issued by the Australian Sports Anti-doping Authority (ASADA) within the next 48 hours (Australian Eastern Standard Time – AEST). The 36-year-old Sydney native was first contacted on March 9 regarding her positive A-sample, and then again in May after her B-sample also came back positive. According to Marangon, who denies any intentional wrongdoing or knowledge of the drug in question, her water bottle was maliciously tampered with during a 30-minute window while her race nutrition was left unattended...

Suit Up! 9 Wetsuit Reviews

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Triathlete.com
No matter your budget or swimming experience, there’s a wetsuit to fit your unique needs. We tested nine of the latest models to help you find the perfect match for your next race. Aqua Sphere Racer $500, Aquasphereswim.com Best for: Core stability and cold-water swims Aqua Sphere updated its entire lineup of wetsuits in 2016 and the new Racer has a striking aesthetic with some trickle-down features from the range-topping Phantom, but at this price, we would like more flexibility through the shoulders. The 2mm panels on the shoulders and sleeves are thicker than similarly priced wetsuits and that additional thickness provides some extra warmth. The lower body also benefits from buoyancy, and the quick release ankle panels make the suit easy to stomp off.

The most beautiful tri in the world? Evergreen Endurance Triathlon is less than two months away

Friday 29 Jul 2016 Norsemen
Arguably one of the world’s most beautiful yet testing triathlons, Evergreen 228 is now under two months away, and with four other distances there’s an event for everyone and still time to enter. Combining an alpine lake swim, a bike leg to rival any Tour de France mountain stage, and a spectacular trail run, the Evergreen 228 is arguably the most beautiful yet testing triathlon in the world. The 228 is one of four events that form the Evergreen Endurance Triathlon weekend over 10-11th September in Chamonix, each offering a different distance to test your limit over some of the most spectacular landscapes out there. The iron-distance Evergreen 228, totalling a 228km route, takes in a 4km swim in Lac de Montriond, a 183km bike leg through the Alpine roads of Haute-Savoie covering six mountain ascents over the reverse of much of this year’s penultimate Tour de France stage. The course finishes with a testing 42km trail run with unrivalled mountain vistas to take the mind off the...

MVA Racing: the last four years

Tuesday 17 Sep 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
Over these first four years of devoting myself solely to coaching (still working on getting back to my own racing tho) I've been very fortunate to have had the chance to work with a multitude of talented, driven athletes.  This has resulted in 24 athletes having qualified for the big hula dance in that time and three podium appearances and umeke bowls.  While that seems to be the standard that so many set as the goal to be obtained the fulfillment that I've gotten from it all is far more.  It's the daily interactions with my athletes both locally and around the globe.  The curiosity they have towards self improvement, the elation they experience when success is found and seeing the fruits of their labour laid out before them after a great race.  Having the chance to make a change in people's lives to improve them, to help them achieve their athletic ambitions but also to help them view the world through a different lens.  There's a reason I say my work is...

What I’ve Learned Wednesday: Hard Work Matters

Wednesday 27 Jul 2016 Admin
20150803_175725 One of the many things I love about endurance training is the time we have to ourselves. Time to feel our body working hard, enjoy the environment around us and let our thoughts wander in and out. Today while riding long, I was thinking about the process. We all work hard; but I know for me, there are times I feel more motivated than others. This year has been challenging as it hasn’t been a smooth ‘flow’ of train-race-recover-repeat.  When the body doesn’t fully cooperate, it’s easy to lose some motivation. However, I often find that it’s during times of adversity and setbacks that I’m forced to ask myself why I’m doing it, why it matters, and how much I’m willing to do to get back to where I want to be. Call me crazy but, I tend to embrace these challenges as much as a hard session or a competition. So, my epiphany of today was this. Hard Work Matters. The process matters. How many times have you put in months of work only to get to race day and fall flat? And you’re left thinking...

8X IRONMAN Champion Luke McKenzie Joins Gatorade Endurance Team

Luke McKenzie and Beth Gerdes test at GSSI in Barrington Illinois Luke McKenzie testing at GSSI in Barrington Illinois March 14th, 2016 Sports Fuel Company to Help Pro Triathlete Improve Fueling for Races CHICAGO, Illinois – March 14, 2016 – Gatorade Endurance announced the signing of eight-time IRONMAN® Champion, Luke McKenzie, to its official athlete roster. McKenzie, one of the leading professional triathletes in long-distance triathlon, is joined by partner and IRONMAN® Champion, Beth Gerdes, who joined the team late in 2015 before the IRONMAN® World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. “After a disappointing race in Kona in 2015, it’s a priority for me to get my fueling and hydration right for this season and beyond,” said McKenzie. “I’m excited to work closely with Gatorade Endurance and the Gatorade Sports Science Institute to learn how to adjust my sports nutrition plan so I can set myself further apart from my competitors.” “Luke McKenzie is one of the most respected athletes in the endurance community,” said Jeff Kearney, Head of Gatorade...

Expectations, Integrity, & Necessity

Wednesday 29 Jun 2016 Admin
20151012_153819_resized I often find when I’m struggling to digest my feelings after a race, it’s best to write and just be honest; with myself and with the world of my friends, family and fellow tri-people. It seems in this world we live in, we love to broadcast of all the great; social media allows us to put out the persona we choose, to make our life look to be ‘something’ that it may or may not be. But we often post what is appealing, positive, and feel-good inducing. I tend to prefer to talk to people personally, and I like to communicate what is “real” as much as possible. I went into Coeur d’Alene 70.3 somewhat haphazard; not in my lack of wanting to perform well, but in my preparations. Some of this was due to extenuating circumstances, but some by choice. I took a good rest after Ironman Texas which was needed. I got back into training but did so in a relaxed manner, still dealing with some foot pain. At times I opted to ride with friends rather than hammer alone for hours on end. It was fun. We...

Mont Tremblant 70.3 2016

Thursday 30 Jun 2016 Lsanderstri
Swim Start Mont Tremblant holds a special place in my heart. This is where I started to truly believe that I could compete with the best in the world, after finishing fourth at the 70.3 World Championships behind Javier Gomez, Jan Frodeno and Tim Don. It also happens to be where Erin did her first Ironman, and where my mom did her first full Ironman (after finishing the swim cancelled Ironman Florida in 2014). My mom, Erin and myself were all competing again this year in the 70.3, so it was sure to be a memorable experience. I put in four solid training blocks after St. George. My training blocks look like this: Day 1: Hard Day 2: Easy Day 3: Hard Day 4: Easy with long run Day 5: Brick Day 6: Easy with long bike Day 7: Hard Day 8: Active recovery Day 9: Off Day 10: Active recovery I will say, I did not give the active recovery days enough respect after the first two blocks. I went to bed late, woke up early, and did not hydrate / replenish nutrients adequately. By the third block I was feeling...
