Weekend Race Report-
The 70.3 World Championships were held this past weekend in Nice, France. The women's race was dominated by Daniela Ryf, who her 5th 70.3 World Championship title. The men's race was won on the back of an incredible 1hr 8min run split by 23 year old Norwegian Gustav Iden. In this great post-race interview
, Gustav Iden talks about why he raced this mountainous course on his road bike, and how he 'paced' a 1hr8min half marathon.
Congrats to the 8 local athletes who made the trip to France to compete on the world stage. Special recognition to Carolyn Olsen and Margaret Hepworth for taking Top 20 in their respective age groups. Results on the Ironman Tracker App
Events We're Looking Forward To:
- The Steve Andrews YMCA Fall Sprint is this weekend, and it's not too late to register.
- The fun and sometimes crazy Hyde Park Street Fair is this weekend.
Gear That Caught Our Attention-
This week I've enjoyed building a few of the brand new Cervelo P-Series disc brake equipped bikes
. The P-Series bikes from Cervelo are known for their clean lines, aerodynamics, and reliability, and I'm happy to see Cervelo keep this trend alive with this updated platform.

Quote that Struck a Chord-
"Be regular and orderly in your life, so you may be violent and original in your work." Gustave Flaubert
Is triathlon anything if not a lesson in consistency and organization? You must not only show up ready to do the work each and every day, but you must be organized in your life, schedule, and training, so that you can get the most out of the work you do.
If You Have a Moment to Spare-
In 2004 a group of friends and I started the Boise State Triathlon Club with the goal to introduce triathlon to the student body. Since then, many students have embraced triathlon as a life-long sport, and in some cases it has changed the direction of their life in a positive way (at least it did for me). If inclined, please consider making a tax-deductible donation this Thursday, September 12th to the Boise State Triathlon Club during the Bronco Giving Day event
. As many of you may remember, college is a tough time to pursue triathlon- when many of us have plenty of passion but few resources.
Have a great week!
