Ironman 70.3 US Championship

08. May 2014 - 3 years and 19 days ago

SRM sponsored triathlete, Michael Weiss, posted his third consecutive fastest bike split following IM Cozumel and IM Melbourne, at the Ironman 70.3 St.George US Pro Championships on Saturday 3rd May 2014.This was Michi’s first 70.3 distance race since the 2011 Worlds in Las Vegas where he finished 4th and in spite of that lack of specific race intensity he has lost none of his power and speed! Michael delivered a stellar performance on a challenging and technical bike loop last Saturday in a field knee deep with uber bikers like Sebastian Kienle, Marino Vanhoenacker, Jordan Rapp and Andrew Yoder to name a few. Additionally, Weiss moved to a new bike sponsor, BMC, a few weeks before St. George and is adapting to the subtle differences in frame geometry and components. Even so, in the time available Michi adapted just fine! Let’s take a look at his SRM file:

Amstel Gold Race

25. April 2014 - 3 years, 1 month and 2 days ago

The Amstel Gold Race runs a total of 251 kilometers through the Netherlands and features 33 climbs as it twists and turns over narrow roads through small villages and massive crowds. This year it was BMC Racing Team's, Philippe Gilbert, who launched a solo sprint to the finish line and claimed his 3rd Amstel Gold victory. Gilbert credited his team - especially teammate, Samuel Sanchez, for perfectly executing the set up for his win. "They all did a very good job to place me in the best position," Gilbert said. "During the briefing, it was planned for Samuel to do an attack at the foot of the Cauberg. It was not a surprise for me, but I think it was one for my adversaries. I only had to wait for the best moment to attack. And I did that when it was most difficult and hurting for everyone." The performance team at BMC Racing Team provided the SRM race file from Sanchez who races at 181cm/68kg.

Ironman Melbourne

30. March 2014 - 3 years, 1 month and 27 days ago

Ironman Melbourne Analysis By Garth FoxMSc, Sports Science & Human Performance Following on from his win at Ironman Cozumel in December, Michael Weiss once again put on a cycling masterclass at Ironman Melbourne on Sunday 23rd March. He not only achieved the fastest bike split of the day in 4:20:50 but also the 3rd fastest marathon time of 2:45:17. His swim time of 52:39 left him trailing the lead group by just over 4 minutes but nevertheless represented a Personal Best in an Ironman swim. Overall he came 4th in a truly world class field in a time of 8:03:46, 2 minutes ahead of the three time world champion, Craig Alexander, and narrowly missing out on a podium place by only 30 seconds. Yet more progress and experience racing in an elite field.
