Ironman 70.3 US Championship

08. May 2014 - 4 years, 1 month and 12 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:

Ironman Melbourne

30. March 2014 - 4 years, 2 months and 21 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.

Weiss Wins Ironman Cozumel

06. December 2013 - 4 years, 6 months and 13 days ago

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.

Ironman World Championships 2013

01. November 2013 - 4 years, 7 months and 18 days ago

Belgian Frederik Van Lierde won the 2013 GoPro Ironman World Championship by putting on what Craig Alexander later referred to as “a clinic” of patience, pacing and tactics. Never at the front until the end, Van Lierde had a plan, executed it to perfection and walked away with his first World Championship title. His SRM power data shows he averaged 294 watts (4.1 w/kg) for the ride, but it’s how and when he put out those watts that mattered. Training Peaks analyzes his data to see how his bike set him up for victory.
