70.3 St.Pölten

06. June 2018 - 4 years, 9 months and 26 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 - 4 years, 10 months and 23 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.

Ironman Cozumel 2016

02. December 2016 - 6 years, 3 months and 30 days ago

On Sunday 27th November, in his 4th consecutive Ironman Cozumel, (having already won the event twice previously and placed 3rd last year), SRM sponsored triathlete, Michi Weiss put together his fastest ever swim/bike combo, as well as a sub-3 hour marathon, to come home in 4th place overall. Another great end of season result, made especially sweet by the fact that he finished it off with yet another fastest bike split to add to his collection and the Cozumel bike course record – happy athlete, happy PowerMeter and bike sponsors! In this article I will examine Michi’s SRM power file and offer some suggestions as to what age group athletes can glean from what is, after all, a jerky line on a graph – trust me though, there is plenty!
