Written by Garth Fox SRM sponsored triathlete, Michael Weiss, was crowned the Ford Ironman Cozumel Champion on Sunday 1st December 2013. Along the way he produced the fastest bike split of the world class field by the impressive margin of 12 minutes and then went on to run the third fastest run split. Certainly Michael’s mountain biking background and pedigree as a former Olympian, European U23 Champion and World Xterra Champion translates directly to his ability on the triathlon bike. However, the SRM file also clearly shows a highly controlled and strategic racing brain in action, as I will explain.0 comments views

The SRM PowerMeter is an incredible tool for a coach and athlete to monitor the training and racing over time. It's consistent, it's accurate, it's reliable. But is life this way? Is any race that way? Nope. You actually have to deal with life and situations in races as they come up. The power tells the story of the race and helps us better to train specifically for the demands of the race, which hopefully can help the coach and athlete deal more successfully with "life" happens. Pua Mata had an incredible year, both on and off the bike this year. Overcoming a broken leg in March, to winning 5 of her first 6 races back from that injury, adding another national championship to her list of accomplishments all led to her having one of her most successful years as a professional mountain bike racer. Capping the season off with another big win at this years's addition of La Ruta de los Conquistadores, I couldn't be more proud of her as an athlete and as a person. Pre-Race: After a great win at the Pisgah MTB Stage race, Pua took some rest and before ramping back up in for the final training block, we had a few things to work around. Injury and sickness occur for everyone; and thankfully, it was nothing major, but the lead into La Ruta this year was far different than last year. As a coach, you can't hide that from the athlete when the athlete is the ONE DOING THE TRAINING, but we talked through that the engine was already built and did our best with what we had. A few solid sessions later, Pua was off to Costa Rica to connect with teammates Alex Grant and Manuel "Manny" Prado to recon the Jungle and get set for a week of racing.1 comments views
