  • KAR The GFT Tribe Hi E-Dad and Taz!!! Hey Dad, how was the B2B?... I follow GFT on twitter, it's really looking like no wetsuits this year, water temp is over 80 degrees... I already have 2014 in the back of my mind. Missed the last three years due to a bad cold race week, plantar fasciitis, and just plain lack of motivation. I concentrated on smaller local races this year. I'm entered in the Florida Challenge next March, so I'll hold off on a GFT decision til after then. But I'm really hungry for one last shot at it... Good luck to all GFT participants tomorrow, make it memorable!!! Anyone know if St. Pete Mad Dogs are still there?

  • Enduradad Slowesttwitch Sorry I didn't see your question earlier. Try compression sleeves. They are a little expensive, but work well. I thought they were a gimmick, but hospitals use them. I wear them at night when I suffer from leg cramps. Look silly, but work well. I have not noticed if they help while racing?

Frodeno, Jackson Run Their Way to IRONMAN 70.3 California Wins
3/28/2015 6:15:57 PM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

ironman 70.3 oceanside frodeno

Taking advantage of beautiful California conditions, Jan Frodeno (GER) and Heather Jackson (USA) used blistering run splits to capture wins at today's Accenture IRONMAN 70.3 California triathlon, crossing the finish line in 3:47:08 and 4:14:47, respectively. Frodeno, Germany's 2008 gold medalist, earned his second consecutive win in Oceanside while Heather Jackson earned her second win in three years.

Men's Race
Five-time IRONMAN 70.3 California champion Andy Potts (USA) led a strong men's field out of the water with his 22:44 swim time. Following closely was last year's winner in Oceanside, Jan Frodeno (GER), while the rest of the contenders were looking at one to two and half minute deficits as they ran into transition.

Once on the bike, a large pack consisting of Maik Twelsiek (GER), Ronnie Schildknecht (CHE), Brent McMahon (CAN), Jesse Thomas (USA) and Lionel Sanders (CAN) joined Potts and Frodeno at the front of the race. After the lead was exchanged a number times in the closing half of the bike, it was Sanders who dismounted his bike first, towing in Twelsiek, Frodeno, McMahon, Potts and Thomas, all within 16 seconds.

The race continued to be tight early on the run as Sanders and Frodeno ran shoulder to shoulder, with McMahon, Potts and Thomas just 13 to 20 seconds off the pace. Frodeno edged away from Sanders after three miles and held a tentative 36-second lead at the six mile marker. The second half of the run was a different story as Frodeno pulled away from the pack and Potts mounted a hard push from behind to pass Sanders. On the strength of the race-best run of 1:10:48, Frodeno captured the 2015 Accenture IRONMAN 70.3 California title in 3:47:08. Potts' hard work on the run was rewarded with a second-place finish (3:48:43), while Sanders (3:49:19) hung on to grab the final podium spot.

Women's Race
Exiting the water first for the women was Jen Spieldenner (USA) followed closely by a group that included Holly Lawrence (GBR) and Alicia Kaye (USA). Race favorites Magali Tisseyre (CAN), Heather Wurtele (CAN) and Michelle Vesterby (DNK) were over a minute down, while Heather Jackson (USA), Rachel McBride (CAN) and Angela Naeth (CAN) found themselves over two minutes off the pace.

Lawrence put her head down on the bike and powered away from the women's field to take an early lead that carried all the way to the completion of the 56-mile bike. Naeth and Jackson rode in second and third as Wurtele forged her way into fourth.

On the run, Lawrence's lead held steady in the opening miles, but by three miles it was evident that she her pace was dropping. With seven miles left in the run Jackson and Wurtele reduced Lawrence's lead to 50 and 90 seconds respectfully. Both stormed past the leader over the second half of the run, with Jackson maintaining a minute lead on Wurtele as Lawrence slipped to third. Jackson's gutsy run garnered the American her second Accenture IRONMAN 70.3 California title with a winning time of 4:14:47. Wurtele was next across the line in 4:16:07, while Lawrence rounded out the podium with her 4:16:59 finish time.

Allen, Slack Win XTERRA Saipan Championship
3/28/2015 3:32:42 PM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

XTERRA Saipan Allen

Ben Allen from Australia and Jacqui Slack of Great Britain won the 14th annual XTERRA Saipan Championship race in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands on Saturday. It's the fourth year in a row Allen won the title, matching Olivier Marceau's streak from 2004-07. For Slack, it's her second Saipan victory in three years. Both led from wire-to-wire in wet conditions that made the already difficult jungle bike and run courses all the more treacherous.

"Some of the worst conditions I've ever raced in. The rain didn't let up and it made for super slippery conditions," explained Allen.

Allen, one of the sports best swimmers, used those skills to bridge an early one-minute gap over Bradley Weiss and backed it up with the fastest bike and run splits of the day to win in convincing fashion with a time of 2:40:25, more than six-minutes ahead of Weiss.

"The climbs on the bike where the only place to really push because you had to be so careful on the descents not to crash. The descents were going to be make or break your day so if you could ride within your own ability and stay upright you were in for a good day."

For Weiss, who was forced to take some time off from training leading into this race because of a troublesome iliotibial band (IT band), the results are satisfying.

"Obviously I am far from my best shape now but was still very excited for my trip out to the Islands. My hopes are to finish well in the XTERRA Asian Tour and take some momentum into the U.S. Tour," said Weiss.

"All being said I am optimistic for the future and feel confident this injury is finally behind me. It's been a frustrating few months but the future looks bright and for that I am excited."

Former XTERRA Japan Champ Takahiro Ogasawara finished in third, followed by Markus Benesch of Austria and Aleksandr Dorovskikh from Russia.

XTERRA Saipan Slack

In the women's race Slack embraced the intimidating conditions right from the start. She was first elite woman out of the water, had the best bike split, and sailed into the finish with a winning time of 3:02:01, more than five minutes ahead of last year's winner Carina Wasle of Austria.

"I thrive on the more challenging conditions," said Slack. "I love the added dimension the rain throws in, and always seem to perform well when it's slick and muddy. My biggest challenge was myself today. I knew I was coming into the race fit but I was more concerned about being recovered from a 100k MTB race I did last weekend in Melbourne."

Mieko Carey, who was introduced to the sport here in Saipan more than a decade ago, finished in third. Seven-time XTERRA Saipan Champ Renata Bucher placed fourth, and Daz Parker was fifth.

The XTERRA Saipan Championship was the second of five races in the 2015 XTERRA Asian Tour that will crown series champions at the season finale in Langkawi, Malaysia this May.

With his runner-up performance today coupled with his Philippines win, Weiss now has 190 points followed by Allen with 182 (he was third in the Philippines). In the women's chase Slack also has 190 points, following her runner-up performance to Flora Duffy in the Philippines with a win today.

MetaMan Becomes IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan Triathlon
3/26/2015 9:59:03 AM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

ironman 70.3 bintanThe growth in popularity of IRONMAN® triathlon in the Asia-Pacific region is set to continue with the popular MetaMan Bintan triathlon event becoming the Swiss-belHotel IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan, Indonesia. The inaugural race will take place on August 23, 2015, and be one of the first qualifying races for the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship to be held in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Just a short ferry ride from Singapore, the MetaMan Bintan triathlon started in 2012, offering both full distance and long distance races. Set on the beautiful beach resort of Bintan in Indonesia, MetaMan has quickly become a must-do race for many triathletes.

The course for IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan, Indonesia will take athletes on an impressive journey around Bintan Island. The event will begin with the 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim in calm and clear waters, even giving athletes a view of the ocean floor as they begin their IRONMAN journeys. Next, athletes will embark on a scenic one-lap, 56-mile (90 km) bike course on smooth, wide roads. Finally, a spectator-friendly, three-lap 13.1-mile (21 km) run course tops off this spectacular event.

"We are thrilled to add another race in the Asia-Pacific region in association with MetaSport, the organizers of the well-established MetaMan event. MetaSport has done a great job growing this event and we look forward to working with them and continuing our strong commitment to growing the sport of triathlon across Asia," said Geoff Meyer, IRONMAN Asia-Pacific CEO.

IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan, Indonesia will be open to relay teams and will also include an IRONKIDS® event as well as shorter AquaBike and Bintan Blitz distances available for individual adults or relay teams.

"After many successful years of hosting MetaMan, our long distance triathlon event in Bintan, Indonesia, we are delighted to be joining the IRONMAN 70.3 family. The appetite for triathlon is strong in our region and I can think of no better place to bring a World Championship qualifier," said MetaSport Managing Director Nathalie Marquet.

Bintan itself is the epitome of an island paradise providing endless beaches, a wide variety of international-class resorts, and tropical holiday activities, including golf, spas, and water sports. Its close proximity to Singapore also gives visitors the best of both worlds - a vibrant city to go with a beautiful beach holiday.

IRONMAN 70.3 Bintan, Indonesia will offer a $25,000 USD professional prize purse and 40 age-group qualifying slots for the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Ironman Announces Addition of Ironman 70.3 Punta del Este
3/24/2015 1:27:04 PM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

Ironman 70.3 Punta del EsteIRONMAN has announced the addition of the IRONMAN® 70.3® Punta del Este triathlon, the seventh IRONMAN-branded race in South America and the first in Uruguay. Previously known as the Iron Punta Triathlon, IRONMAN 70.3 Punta del Este will take place on November 29, 2015, along the beautiful Atlantic Coast of Uruguay.

"We are thrilled to bring our brand to Uruguay and expand the IRONMAN 70.3 event series in South America," said Steve Meckfessel, Managing Director of Global Race Operations for IRONMAN. "There's been a strong foundation laid for long-distance racing over the past 10 years in Punta del Este and we look forward to executing a first-ever, world-class IRONMAN 70.3 event in the region."

The IRONMAN 70.3 Punta del Este triathlon begins with a 1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim in the calm blue waters of the Maldonado Bay, where swimmers will pass the tranquil Gorriti Island, before returning to the beach where they started. Athletes will then embark on a two-loop, 56-mile (90 km) bike course that travels along the stunning coastline towards Punta Ballena Hill. Finally, athletes will take on a two-loop, flat and fast 13.1-mile (21 km) run course that winds around the peninsula of Punta del Este to the point where the Atlantic meets the Rio de la Plata. The course offers striking ocean views as it passes by the city's famous fish markets, prestigious yacht port, multiple restaurants and "Los Dedos" - an iconic sculpture of a giant hand emerging from the sand, one of Uruguay's most recognizable landmarks - before a lively finish line just off the beach at The Conrad Hotel.

"We are excited by the opportunity to work with IRONMAN in the next edition of the Punta del Este race. The combination of IRONMAN's world-class brand and operations, the support from the city and the heritage of the Punta race should result in a spectacular race experience for our athletes. We are hugely looking forward to welcoming our athletes to the race later this year" said Jorge Beltran, IRONMAN 70.3 Punta del Este Local Race Director.

Punta del Este is a world famous beach resort situated on the coastline of Uruguay. The city boasts a mix of colonial and cutting edge modern architecture combined with picturesque beaches, world-class dining and shopping options, and a friendly, safe atmosphere.

The country's "Uruguay Natural" campaign highlights the coastlines and rivers that offer visitors the opportunity to explore the hidden gems, or relax and enjoy the miles of stunning beaches. The capital city of Montevideo, just 90 minutes to the west of Punta del Este has been voted as the city with the highest quality of life in Latin America.

The IRONMAN 70.3 Punta del Este triathlon will offer a $25,000 USD professional prize purse and 30 age-group qualifying slots for the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship taking place in Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

General registration for IRONMAN 70.3 Punta del Este will open March 24, 2015 at www.ironman.com/puntadeleste70.3.

Gwen Jorgensen secures first WTS Auckland win
12:00:00 AM ITU News
American Gwen Jorgensen finally got a long awaited win at the 2015 World Triathlon Series in Auckland on Sunday after three attempts. The victory rocketed the American to 10 WTS wins and cemented her place at the top of the Threedneedle leader board after her win in Abu Dhabi. Also mirroring that first WTS race earlier in the year, fellow American Katie Zaferes was able to take home the silver medal with a time of 2:10:42. Jorgensen was emerged from the water with in a 40-second deficit but her her effort on the early laps catapulted her into the lead group as she was able to remain their for the entire 40km —giving her the time to push ahead early in the final and strongest leg of the competition. Crossing the finish-line at 2:09:04 with a lead of over 90 seconds, she earned her second gold of the year and granted her the rights to an early perfect 2015 WTS season. “I really wanted to be with the leaders in T2 so I am really happy that I was able to do that. I was able to execute with my run today but my main goal is to keep with front pack during the bike,” said Jorgensen. A mild temperature sunny conditions saw a group of about nine lead by Jessica Learmonth (GBR) and Carolina Routier (ESP) lead out of the swim with a healthy gap between them and the chase group, for the entirety of the 1500-metre swim. After the first transition, a strong lead group was led by Lucy Hall (GBR) and Sarah True (USA) for the first couple laps of the bike. But entering into the third lap a huge push from the chase group caused the frontrunners to turn into a 21-women merger. The last part of the bike ride the leaders dwindled down to an 11-person pack that included Jorgensen, True, Lisa Norden (SWE), Andrea Hewitt (NZL) and Vendula Frintova (CZE). Norden executed a strong performance on the bike as she brought herself back from a forty-second deficit from the water to be the leader on the bike for five out of the eight-laps. However she was forced to pull herself out of the race once she hit the run portion with confirmed Achilles trouble. On the pavement the three podium positions were determined early with Jorgensen, Zafares and Hewitt breaking away from the pack. While Jorgensen took off on her trademark run, fellow teammate Zafares was able to hold onto a consistent run to land her the second-place finish. “I am super excited, last year was my first time in Auckland and it went as bad as I think it could go. This year it went as good as I think it...
