Ironman World Championship 2018

17. October 2018 - 1 month and 1 day ago

On Saturday 13th October, Michi Weiss delivered, quite possibly, the finest performance of his career so far. He achieved a top 10 in the deepest field of pro triathletes on the planet. The highlight was posting the 2ndfastest bike split ever seen in the 40-year history of the race. The relatively benign atmospheric conditions played their part in that performance but take nothing away from its sheer brilliance. Lets take a closer look at his SRM power file.

Ironman 70.3 Cozumel 2018

02. October 2018 - 1 month and 15 days ago

On a very hot and humid Sunday 30thSeptember 2018, on the beautiful Mexican Island of Cozumel, Michi Weiss grabbed his fourth outright Ironman win of the year, posting the day’s fastest bike and run splits in the process. Having won the full Ironman here, which incorporates much of the 70.3 course, on three previous occasions, it is clear that the warm, crystal clear ocean swim, pan flat superfast bike course and hot but flat running conditions seem to suit Michi’s style of racing rather well. In this article I will unpack Michi’s race winning SRM power file and explain a little bit how we use it to dial in his race winning form.

Ironman Austria 2018

04. July 2018 - 4 months and 14 days ago

On Sunday 1stJuly 2018, SRM sponsored athlete, Michi Weiss, became the first Austrian in 20 years to win his home Ironman race and the first ever to achieve the Austrian Double – Ironman 70.3 St.Polten and Ironman Austria - in the same year. He has had six top 10 finishes at Klagenfurt before and was already a 4-time Ironman and 2-time Ironman 70.3 Champion, but this victory was special. He has prioritized it ever since we first met in 2011, coming so close on many occasions without ever having taken the top step - until yesterday, when it all came together in a superb display of controlled, decisive racing. Lets take a closer look:

70.3 St.Pölten

06. June 2018 - 5 months and 12 days ago

Michi Weiss Wins Ironman 70.3 St. Polten with a New Course Record! On Sunday 27th May 2018, SRM sponsored triathlete Michi Weiss won his home race at Ironman St. Polten, Austria in 3h51m36s, setting a new course record as well as posting the best bike and run splits of the day. This was Michi’s fourth podium spot in four 70.3 races this year. The fruits of a great winter training program are coming through in abundance. In this article I want to use the SRM power race data to show what is required to win an Ironman 70.3 pro race in which no less than 6 athletes break the 4hr barrier over a tough course. I also want to touch on the type of training we use with Michi (and our age-groupers) to underpin great race day performance – some of it may well surprise. Read on!

70.3 St. George

09. May 2018 - 6 months and 9 days ago

Michi Weiss storms to a 3rdplace finish at Ironman 70.3 St.George 2018 behind Sanders and Kienle 3 Races, 3 Podiums On Saturday 5thMay in St.George, Utah, SRM sponsored triathlete, Michi Weiss, grabbed his 3rdconsecutive podium of the 2018 season in Ironman 70.3 racing, having already picked up a 2ndat IM 70.3 Campeche in March and 2ndat IM Texas 70.3 last month. It has been a stellar start to the season. In this article I want to take you through Michi’s overall performance at St.George, a performance which saw him exit the water around 3 minutes down on the leading swimmers after a solid 00:26:39 wetsuit swim, going on to post the 3rdfastest bike split in 2:02:31 and then to lay down the fastest run split of the day in 1:10:41 to come in only 2 minutes down on Lionel Sanders and just 36 seconds behind Sebastian Kienle – both of whom were losing ground to Michi in the latter stages.
