  • 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?

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?

Jorgensen & Brownlee Win ITU World Triathlon Auckland
3/29/2015 12:36:34 PM tjnickhttp://www.trijuice.com Triathlon Juice (TRIJUICE) - triathlon news & resource site

itu-nzl-jorgensen-15.jpgAmerica's Gwen Jorgensen and Great Britian's Jonathan Brownlee finally get a win in New Zealand at the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Series in Auckland . The win gives Jorgensen gets her 10th WTS victory.

Jorgensen emerged from the water with a 40-second deficit but her effort on the early laps catapulted her into the lead group and she was able to remain their for the entire 40km --giving her the time to push ahead early in her signature strong run. 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.

Mile temperatures and sunny conditions saw a group of about nine, which was headed 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 of laps of the bike. But entering into the third lap, a huge push from the chase caused the frontrunners to turn 21-deep. The pack managed to drop half the group, dwindling down to 11 women 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, Zaferes and Hewitt when the trio broke away. While Jorgensen took off on her trademark run, fellow teammate Zaferes was able to hold onto a consistent run to land her the second-place finish.

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.

Following a less than perfect start to his 2015 season, Brownlee turned in a master-class performance over the tough, hilly course made even more difficult in the wet conditions to beat out the reigning WTS Auckland champion Javier Gomez Noya (ESP), who took the second-podium spot. For Frenchman Pierre Le Corre (FRA) it was a career best result of bronze.

In the lead pack the entire race, Brownlee proved his gold-medal worth once foot hit the pavement and he secured a healthy gap that brought him into the finish-line first. Adding a 10-second lead after each of the lap on the 10-kilometre run, he took home the top podium position with a time of 1:55:26.

"It was great to win today, first World Series event that I have won in a while. In Abu Dhabi I made a lot of mistakes and I have been beating myself up about it over the last three weeks and training hard because I did not want to do it again," said Brownlee. "I felt good, I really enjoyed it today and I am pleased to win."

It was no surprise to see the familiar sight of Richard Varga (SVK) at the front of the swim pack and first out of the water, after which a lead group formed crossing through the first transition that remained a tight pack until the end of the bike.

With the leaders becoming interchangeable, a 15-man lead group held a united front and stayed uninterrupted for all eight laps of the bike, including Brownlee, Thomas Bishop (GBR), Varga, Gomez, Henri Schoeman (RSA) and Pierre Le Corre (FRA). The chase group, which housed New Zealand's own Ryan Sissons (NZL) and the WTS Abu Dhabi gold medallist Mario Mola (ESP) could not close the gap and stayed behind by over 30 seconds.

Spain's Gomez returned to form after his 6th-place finish in Abu Dhabi and earned himself a podium position. Despite not being able to match Brownlee's furious pace, in the final lap he broke away from Le Corre to take silver. This is the first time in the four outstanding appearances in Auckland that Gomez has not placed first.

"Jonathan was just really strong today. I have been through a pretty tough time lately, I got sick right before Abu Dhabi and between that race and today I was taking a strain too so I am really happy with second place. Obviously I would have loved to win but I performed the best I could," said Gomez.

Rankings Report Cape Town 2015
12:00:00 AM ITU News
After four rounds of the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Series, things are starting to get interesting at the top of the Columbia Threadneedle Rankings. Let’s see what we learned form Cape Town. Women’s Review Cape Town proved to be a huge return to form for the Great Britain team. The previous three races had yielded an uncharacteristic best of just two 17th place finishes, for a squad which has suffered from the injury and absence of its star names and consistent podium finishers. Helen Jenkins and Vicky Holland were returning to WTS competition for the first time since Hamburg last July hoping to improve that record. It proved to be a marquee day for Vicky Holland who would take her first World Triathlon Series podium with victory in her 26th career WTS race. With Helen Jenkins seventh and a career best result from Emma Pallant in tenth – she had never previously been inside the top 25 – that was the first time since last year’s Cape Town event the British women had secured three of the top ten finishing positions. In the absence of the Gwen Jorgensen in South Africa, Team USA may only have secured one of the three podium spots this time around but if anything, their strength in depth was perhaps enhanced further. Katie Zaferes (second), Kirsten Kasper (sixth) and Chelsea Burns (ninth) all matched or improved on their best ever World Triathlon Series results and in so doing continued the sequence of having at least three top ten finishes by U.S. women in all four of the 2015 events. The USA now has a total of seven women who have finished in a top ten position at least once in the 2015 World Triathlon Series. Kasper’s result also makes her the biggest rankings mover at Cape Town rising 39 places from 63rd to 24th. For Zaferes, three second places and one third make her the only athlete, male or female, to have made the podium in every race so far this season and with that she now takes over pole position in the Columbia Threadneedle Rankings. With five events plus the Grand Final to count towards the year-end total that represents a great start to her 2015 campaign. Much like the British, Cape Town was also a great day for Germany. Without a single top ten finish in the first three races, Sophie Saller (fourth), Rebecca Robisch (fifth) and Anne Haug (eighth) took three in Cape Town, with those results representing career best WTS finishes for both Saller and Robisch. Cape Town also represented the welcome return to the World Series for...
ITU continues commitment to development with camp
12:00:00 AM ITU News
ITU recently welcomed 12 athletes from eight countries to a training camp in New Plymouth, New Zealand as a part of its scholarship development program. The athletes that were selected have shown a high level of competence in World Cup or Continental Cup events and are looking to qualify for Rio 2016, but need support in order to do so. The primary objective of this project is to provide resources and expertise to athletes, while also increasing the number of coaches from emerging/developing National Federations gaining experience in the preparation and support of athletes competing at a World Cup level. Manuel Huerta, who represented the US at the 2012 London Olympics, but has since switched his National Federation affiliation to Puerto Rico, was one of the camp participants. “It’s great. Having the ITU staff, coaches and athletes from around the world with the same goals as you not only helps you on race day but motivates me even more to go after my career goals. It’s an opportunity to get support at races that I wouldn’t get from my country. It also provides me help to my qualification process for Rio,” Huerta said. Estonia’s Aleksandr Latin, who also took part in the camp, agreed with Huerta saying that being a part of Team ITU allows him the opportunity to focus on his training and performance without expending energy worrying about the additional pressures involved with traveling to a race. “It means a lot to have such a good team around you. You always have someone to train with, and it is big financial help as well. Team ITU coaches are very experienced and they are always keen to help me with some good advice such as cornering techniques or race tactics. I always use this opportunity to get as much information as it is possible,” said Latin, who also helps out fellow teammates and competitors by serving as a translator when needed. A veteran triathlete who showed early promise in her youth, Slovenia’s Mateja Simic joined the men as a camp participant. Despite a successful triathlon career early on, Simic found it difficult to make the jump from a top junior athlete to a competitive elite athlete until she began working with Team ITU. “I didn’t find the right environment to move to the elite level, but then in 2011 I found it when I was selected for Team ITU for the first time,” Simic said. “That is when I began to understand that I could become an elite triathlete, even I was already 31. That same year, Simic...
Alistair Brownlee captures World Triathlon Series in 18 in Cape Town
12:00:00 AM ITU News
Not even a stumble on the run could stop Alistair Brownlee‘s return to the top of the World Triathlon Series podium in Cape Town on Sunday, as the most successful athlete in series history, he took his total number of titles to 18. While he tripped early on in the run, Brownlee made his way up to the lead group of Javier Gomez Noya, Richard Murray and Vincent Luis quickly, before blowing them away in the final 1500m. In his first WTS race in 2015 after returning from injury, Brownlee said he wasn’t sure what to expect, but was obviously thrilled with the result. “Of course you never know, all you can do is train as hard as you can and put everything in that you can on the day. I knew I wasn’t that fit and I didn’t have good legs in that first lap to be honest… The whole thing was tough, but I’m so glad to have the win,” Brownlee said. In the one-lap 750m swim, shortened due to weather conditions, it was the reigning Cape Town champion who took the race out strongly. Gomez led in the field from the swim, followed by France’s Dorian Coninx and Aurelien Raphael, Russia’s Dmitry Polyanskiy and Spain’s Francesc Godoy. However the shortened distance did nothing to split the field and a lead group of around 45 athletes formed on the first lap. While the lead group initially pushed out an advantage of 35 seconds in the first two laps, the pace slowed and the chase caught their tail. This meant that for the majority of the remaining six bike laps, the lead group included almost the entire field. While Brownlee, Murray, Alessandro Fabian, Jonas Schomburg and others tried at times to breakaway, none of them stuck as the group seemed content to stick together until the second transition. In a busy T2, positioning was crucial and it was Brownlee who didn’t miss a beat on his return. Despite his lower than usual start number putting him in the middle of a busy transition, he negotiated it smoothly and hit the run first. Early on, a lead group of six set themselves apart from the field. Led by Brownlee, Gomez, Murray, Fernando Alarza, Vincent Luis and Pierre Le Corre set a torrid pace. One lap in saw Le Corre dropped, and Murray move to the front in front of a thrilled home crowd. On the next lap Alarza fell back, leaving it to four, before Brownlee took an uncharacteristic stumble. That saw him lose touch with the leading trio, but not for long, as he propelled himself back into the lead within the lap. With 3km to go, Luis fell off the front, which seemed to...
Cape Town gives Holland first WTS win
12:00:00 AM ITU News
Under foggy skies and with a slight chill in the air, Great Britain’s Vicky Holland announced her return from injury in style with her first ever World Triathlon Series win. A late surge on the run gave the Brit just what she needed to hold off the USA’s Katie Zaferes and Switzerland’s Nicola Spirig. With silver, Zaferes moved into the top spot on the Columbia Threadneedle Rankings. “I felt really good in training, but probably just for about the last month or so. It has been a tough run for me, I have had a lot of injury problems since January so I have watched the last WTS races but I was dying to get out there,” said Holland. “This day was an experiment to see how fit I was, we thought I would be quite good for a 5km, but a 10km might be a stretch, but I felt really great. I knew there was not many of us there in the end so I thought I was going to have to dig and I turned around and I was the only one left, so it just seemed to play off in the day for me.” Zaferes got her day started with a bang as she zoomed to the top of the swim pack and led the 48-deep field around the one-lap 750m swim, which was shortened due to water temperatures. Brazil’s Pamela Oliveira joined the American as one of the first athletes to emerge, with Great Britain’s Helen Jenkins also seemingly un-phased by the chilly temps with a strong position out of the Atlantic. Together with Flora Duffy (BER), the foursome powered away on the first of eight bike laps in an attempt to create distance between themselves and the powerful Spirig and Sarah True (USA). But with the reigning Olympic gold medallist back racing for the first time in two years, the gap was short lived. At the end of the second lap, the distance was diminished and a 27-person group was created.  Despite holding down a part-time job while also training after graduating from Oxford University, South Africa’s Mari Rabie showed her tenacity as she dominated the front of the bike pack lap after lap alongside Duffy and Spirig.  Meanwhile True, Zaferes, Erin Densham (AUS), Anne Haug (GER) and Junior World Champ Laura Lindemann (GER) stayed tucked safely into the middle of the pack.  Spirig came roaring into transition and hammered out in front with Vendula Frintova (CZE) and Haug in the first half kilometer of the 10km run. Holland picked up the pace and reeled in the ladies, which drug the rest of the chase up making them a half-dozen deep pack on the first of four laps. Young German...
