XTERRA Night

Boulder

 

Have you ever thought about making the switch from road to off-road triathlon? Join us at Colorado Multisport for a fun evening with XTERRA to learn all about how you can do your first off-road triathlon.

We will have a panel of local triathletes, professional and amateur alike, who can speak to what it’s like to make the transition and why you should! We will be discussing topics such as what it takes to do an XTERRA, what equipment is required, and what skills you can prepare you to take on your first race. Panelist will include CMS’s own XTERRA professional triathlete and bike fitter-extraordinaire Ryan Ignatz, and Brett Tact, local coach, personal trainer, and XTERRA competitor. Follow this page for further updates on our panel attendees and event details.

XTERRA will be offering 15% off registration for both XTERRA Beaver Creek and XTERRA Indian Peaks for everyone who attends. One lucky person will win a free entry into the XTERRA Beaver Creek event on July 21st! Not only that, everyone who attends will get sweet swag from XTERRA.

We look forward to seeing everyone here!

Tri Club Tuesday: CU Tri Club Silent Auction

CU Triathlon’s Inaugural Silent Auction
By Paisley Sheehan

The CU Triathlon team would like to invite you to join us this Friday, March 9th at 6pm at Colorado Multisport for our inaugural auction!

This event is the work of many local businesses and team members, and we’ve brought together an impressive array of items to be bid upon. Entry is $10, and refreshments and door prizes will be part of the fun.

The University of Colorado Triathlon Team is a club made up of about 75 student athletes. We’re open to every level of triathlete – from first-timers just learning how to swim to athletes who race at the pro level. Our training keeps us together six days a week, and if that weren’t enough we still manage to find time to spend together as friends. Workouts are created by our three inspirational coaches, Brad Seng, Leigh Dodd, and Dave Sheanin, who lead practices and provide insight about anything and everything triathlon. The team is run by elected members who are responsible for fundraising, race travel, and so much more. We take pride in being a part of the local triathlon community and volunteer at many races throughout the year.

The Mountain Collegiate Triathlon Conference (MCTC) competes annually at local races like Boulder Sunset and Oktoberfest, as well as the Pumpkinman Triathlon in Boulder City, Nevada. The CU Triathlon team attends all of these races, culminating in the MCTC Championship race in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. All of this is in preparation for USA Triathlon Collegiate Club Nationals, taking place this year in Tuscaloosa, Alabama from April 27-28. All together, the University of Colorado Triathlon Team has taken home 18 national titles, including the last 8 consecutive years. As a competitive team, we train as hard as we race, but we also enjoy spending time together and sharing our passion for triathlon. As Coach Dave says, “Common suffering builds great teams” – and that has been our mantra for at least as
long as I’ve been on the team.We take pride in our team’s accomplishments, however, our focus is on working hard and having fun.

When my teammates talk about the team on social media or with prospective teammates, it is very common to hear the word “family” used. I can attest that the team feels like my second family, as many of best friends are on the team. One of my best decisions in college was to join the CU Triathlon Team, and every practice reminds me how grateful I am to be surrounded by so many amazing teammates.

Our team is mostly student funded. Every athlete is responsible for paying their own club dues, but our officers work hard to ensure the team has enough fundraising opportunities to subsidize expenses for teammates. ​As a key part of this effort, the University of Colorado Triathlon Team will be holding an inaugural silent auction at 6pm this Friday, March 9th at Colorado Multisport. We have worked with our team sponsors and other local businesses to bring together items that will make for an exciting auction. Products from companies including RŌKA, Boulder Running Company, and Honey Stinger with be featured. Also, you can enjoy a presentation given by local pro triathlete Cam Dye. We would love for anyone in the triathlon community and beyond to come and support us. All proceeds will benefit our journey to nationals by making it possible for more of our team to travel to Alabama.

To follow us on on our journey to Nationals, find us on Instagram @cutriteam, Facebook @CUTriathlon and our website www.cutriathlon.com.

Here It Is, the 2018 IRONMAN Boulder Bike Course

by Bill Plock

As the fifth Ironman Boulder approaches, about 40 people gathered at Colorado Multisport for the unveiling of a new bike course. There are many changes from last year.  In general this course should be a little bit faster with about 500 less feet of climbing and longer stretches of uninterrupted straight roads than last year.

The course is also two loops instead of three and very little of Highway 36 will be used. The notorious false flat of Jay road has been eliminated and riders head west on Neva road and east (downhill) on Nelson road, the steepest part of the course the last couple of years. There is an uphill section on St. Vrain road and an out and back on Hygiene road both of which aren’t as steep as Nelson.

 

The biggest change came by utilizing Hwy 119 (the diagonal) which is a divided highway. By working hard with transportation officials, Race Director, Tim Brosious was able secure the entire southbound lanes for a 12 mile, straight, out and back start to each loop before heading west toward the foothills. By having this road open only to racers, athletes should see good time splits with ample room to get into a good rhythm on this flat stretch of newly paved road

 

Race courses need to provide a fun, challenging and safe experience while impacting the community as little as possible. It would appear that in its fifth bike course version, those goals are being met better than ever. Longtime Ironman race director, Dave Christen said, “this is my favorite course so far and I think we will have a good chance at keeping it for a while.”

 

Please keep in mind that the course outlined in the video is not the full course as the last few miles in to town are being finalized at how it will connect to the run. The run is anticipated to stay basically the same and utilize Boulder Creek.
