Summary:Shubh Sidhu is the VP of Growth at ZayZoon, an employee financial wellness company whose core service offering is “wages on-demand” (i.e., what the industry now calls early wage access). ZayZoon was an opportunity that Shubh was passionate about both because it had a potential for significant growth and (more importantly) because it was an opportunity to give people a solution to some of their biggest challenges. Shubh's focuses on building scalable, optimized growth engines and develop the careers of people he gets to work with. In this episode, Shubh talks about how earned wage access affects employees. Chapters:[0:00 -5:06] Introduction•Welcome, Shubh!•Today's Topic: How Earned Wage Access Affects Employees[5:07 -14:29] What is Earned Wage Access (EWA)?•Giving more financial control to people who live paycheck-to-paycheck•Rules and regulations around access to pay[14:30 -21:28] What are companies' expectations when implementing EWA?•Avoiding cashflow issues•How companies can smoothly integrate EWA[21:29 -33:32] How can employees benefit from EWA? •Access to pay during times of need•Improving financial literacy[33:33] Closing•Thanks for listening!Quotes:“Effectively, the concept of early wage access (or earned wage access) is trying to bridge that gap. How do we get employees access to their pay as they work without having to necessarily wait for that two week cycle, while at the same time not compromising the employer cash flow?”“Financial stress is (outside of a couple of other things) right at the top of everybody's list in terms of what impacts them and causes them the most stress. . . . Close to 90% [of employees] will say, “My stress level is lower knowing I have access to on demand pay.”Contact:Shubh's LinkedInDavid's LinkedInDwight's LinkedInProduction by Affogato MediaPodcast Manger: Karissa Harris

The Frontier X2 monitors the heart continuously over long periods of time, providing endurance athletes with unprecedentedly detailed data that is not only valuable in keeping tabs on overall heart health, but also in optimising training and racing.   Unlike traditional heart rate monitors that only record beats per minute, the chest-worn Frontier X2 also records the core functioning of the heart and lungs – generating a continuous ECG graph. Users can thereby monitor and correlate this ECG data with their breathing rate, heart rate, heart strain, and even their specific activity on a detailed dashboard – offering a complete report of your real-time cardiac and respiratory health.   Using cutting-edge hardware, software, and advanced patented algorithms, Fourth Frontier combines the best of cardiac science and wearable technology to afford its users access to data, metrics, and insights that wre previously only available in labs and clinics.   What's New in the 303:   Bill's stories!   Inaugural Purgatory 4 Adventure Relay Takes to the High Country It was a cool overcast but calm morning at Lake Maloya and Sugarite Canyon State Park as The Purgatory 4 Adventure Relay took to the trails and water Saturday morning September 10, 2022 for its inaugural run.   The Purgatory 4 Adventure Relay took the place of the Master of the Mountain Adventure Race that had been held at the lake in years past. The MOM, as it was known, became a victim of the pandemic in 2020 and was revived when Jared Chatterly picked it up as the new Director of Recreation in Trinidad and renamed it The Purgatory 4. The name comes from the four events and the Purgatory River which traverse the area.   The event trail run is still the same as the MOM which is a six-mile trek up and around Horse Mesa. The race begins at the boat ramp and goes around to the north side of the mesa and up and back down from the south and back to the boat ramp. The contestant then jumps in a kayak and traverses about a 3-mile course around Lake Maloya. Once back at the boat ramp contestants grab their bikes and head out.   With The Purgatory 4 being much the same as the MOM it does now change and ends at the TSC Prator Gun Range east of Trinidad where the shotgun portion of the event is held. From Lake Maloya to the gun range is a long way as most people would think. However, this is where the bicycle portion of the event becomes more of an adventure as it takes Las Animas County Road 85.5 north up and over San Fransisco Pass and down into the Nile Canyon area where it meets County Road 22 and then takes County Road 24.6 up to the gun range. The new route is about 15 miles versus the 25 mile road course that the MOM had.   This year the event had 48 registered participants but one team and two individuals had to cancel leaving 44 participants. Chatterly noted he was going to be happy with a smaller number of participants yet became ecstatic as the numbers grew and went over 40 contestants.   Gunnison, Blue Mesa, Taylor Res, Host Eric Larson polar explorer.

More than 700 athletes finished the race.   The first across the finish line was Alex Whetman of Riverton, Utah. It took him 9 hours, 11 minutes, 17 seconds to swim 1.2 miles in Auke Lake, bike 112 miles on Glacier Highway and run a full 26-mile marathon through the Mendenhall Valley.   Liz Cullen of Gibson, British Columbia, was the top female finisher with a time of 10 hours, 23 minutes, 3 seconds.   The first person from Juneau to finish was Will Coleman, who was 14th overall. Beth Gollin was Juneau's first female finisher and 13th female overall.   John Bursell was Juneau's second finisher. He has completed several Ironman races in the past, and met his goal this time to qualify for the Ironman World Championship event in Hawaii in October.   “It was a great experience overall,” he said. “I think Ironman did a great job. I was super-impressed and proud of Juneau. You know, the way people turned out — the support was incredible, the volunteers were incredible. And we heard that over and over again from people who came from out of town to compete. This was basically the most supportive community they've ever raced in.”   Bursell said locals volunteered, loaned out their own personal bikes, opened up their homes to house athletes and even offered free car rides around town. According to a press release from Ironman, more than 1,400 people volunteered.   The event had a lot of challenges. Race officials cut the swim portion in half, due to the cold water temperatures in Auke Lake.   Before the race even began, logistics issues drove down turnout. In a press release, Ironman said “approximately 1,000” athletes came to Juneau for the event. An official list dated from April had identified more than 1,300 participants.   Juneau's destination marketing organization, Travel Juneau, worked closely with race organizers. Executive Director Liz Perry said there will be a full debrief to work on making the second Ironman Alaska event go smoother. Perry said there's a three-year contract, meaning Ironman Alaska will be back in Juneau in 2023 and 2024.   What's New in the 303:   XTERRA USA Championship returns to Colorado in August 2023 The 22nd annual XTERRA USA Championship off-road triathlon will return to Beaver Creek Resort in conjunction with a community festival in Avon, Colorado, on August 25-27, 2023.   XTERRA will host full-distance, sprint, relay, and beginner-friendly off-road triathlons along with trail runs, demo events, and a variety of activities for the family. This includes kid's races, yard games, exhibitors, food trucks, beer gardens, and live music at the open air Harry A Nottingham Park and Performance Pavilion in the heart of Avon.   “It's an amazing venue, for both its natural beauty and world-class facilities, and the support we receive from the community is incredible,” said Steve Andrus, XTERRA US Tour Manager.   “We're looking forward to building on the partnerships we established last year, and excited about our new date in August which provides us with more opportunities to engage with local partners and deliver a truly exceptional experience for participants.”   The main event will award US$25,000 in prize money to professionals, plus XTERRA USA Championship crowns to age group division winners, along with 51 qualifying spots into the 2023 XTERRA World Championship to be held in Trentino, Italy.   While this will be XTERRA's 14th year of racing at Beaver Creek Resort, it is just the second time XTERRA has hosted its national championship in the Colorado Rockies following 12 seasons at Snowbasin Resort in Utah (2009-2021) and eight years in Incline Village, Nevada (2001-2008).   The championship event starts with a one-mile swim in the cool waters of Nottingham Lake situated at 7,400-feet elevation. This is followed by ‘a fun, up-and-down, 16-mile mountain bike' – finishing with a 6-mile trail run through the aspens and into the village square.   The weekend of events is supported by partners from the Town of Avon, Beaver Creek Resort, US Forest Service, The Cycle Effect, and Walking Mountains Science Center.   “We enjoyed collaborating with XTERRA and their use of Nottingham Lake and Park, and the Performance Pavilion really showcased Avon,” said Danita Dempsey, the Culture, Arts & Special Event Manager for the Town of Avon. “We are thrilled to have them back.”   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Runs in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the week: RACE DAY RECAP! *1st ever IRONMAN Alaska*   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Normann Stadler and Natascha Badmann's team won eight of the 12 matches in an astonishing show of dominance to defend the title they won in 2021, when they won six of the 12 matches. Team Europe finished on 53 points, with Team Internationals second on 38 and Team USA coming third, having collected 22.5 points.   Team Europe produced a dominant performance to defend the Collins Cup in Samorin, Bratislava. Normann Stadler and Natascha Badmann's team posted 53 points, as they won eight of the 12 matches. Team Internationals' four wins were enough for second on 38 points, while Team USA – who failed to win a match – finished third on 22.5 points.   Inspired by golf's Ryder Cup, the Collins Cup sees three teams of 12 (six men and six women) racing for their team in a bid to win points. There were 12 match races which featured a 2km swim, 80km bike ride and 18km run. Collins Cup match-ups announced: Olympic medallists Blummenfelt and Wilde drawn togetherCollins Cup match-ups announced: Olympic medallists Blummenfelt and Wilde drawn together   The three teams earned points depending on where their athlete finished in the race. Athletes could earn an extra half-point for their team for every two minutes they won by, up to a six-minute victory, which equates to 1.5 points. Amd Daniela Ryf set the tone early for Team Europe, with the reigning Ironman world champion dominating on the bike for Stadler and Badmann's team to begin the defence of their crown in emphatic fashion.   Wins for Ashleigh Gentle and Paula Findlay for Team Internationals would keep Team Europe on their toes in matches 2 and 3, but captain's pick Nicola Spirig – gold medal-winner at London 2012 – showed her prowess on the bike to win match 4.   Holly Lawrence and Anne Haug rounded off a consummate performance from Team Europe in the women's races, winning four matches to Team Internationals' two. Team USA failed to register a win.   Kristian Blummenfelt continued European dominance in match seven. The reigning Olympic champion emerged from the swim third, but showed his mettle on the bike to beat Team Internationals' Hayden Wilde into second. The Team USA competitor Ben Kanute took third.   Sam Laidlow broke Europe's run of finishing in either first or second spot in match eight, with Team Internationals' Lionel Sanders beating Sam Long to the line. Laidlow would finish alongside match 11 winner Gustav Iden.   However, Team Europe picked up wins in matches 9 (Magnus Ditlev), 11 (Gustav Iden) and 12 (Daniel Baekkegard) to ensure that Team Europe defended the crown they won last year. Match 10 was won by Team Internationals' Aaron Royle, meaning Team USA finished the event with no wins.   What's New in the 303:   Familiar faces take home wins at Leadville Trail 100 Previous champions Clare Gallagher and Adrian Macdonald take home their second wins at The Race Across the Sky. On Saturday morning, the most famous 100-mile trail race, The Leadville Trail 100 (The Race Across the Sky), kicked off in Leadville, Colo., as runners made their way through 4,800m of elevation gain in the Rocky Mountains. Previous champions Clare Gallagher (2016) and Adrian Macdonald (2021) both earned their second Leadville titles, taking the win by a margin of two hours.   Adrian Macdonald of Fort Collins, Colo., wins the back-to-back titles at the Leadville 100. Photo: Leadville Race Series This race has been a staple of the ultrarunning community since its inception in 1983. The extreme elevation and high altitude are the biggest challenges athletes face as they make their way through the Rocky Mountains.   The women's race When Gallagher won in 2016, she flirted with the course record of 18:06:24 (1994) for the first 50 miles. This year, Gallagher went out more conservatively, racing with Addie Bracy until the 50-mile mark.   Bracy, a three-time USATF Trail National Champion, created a six-minute gap on a Gallagher, but she managed to gain back time on Bracy in the second half. By the 60-mile mark, Gallagher managed to fight her way back to the front, while Bracy dropped out of the race, leaving Gallagher with a considerable lead over the field, which she held until the end.   Gallagher, from Boulder, Colo., was the first woman to cross the finish line in 19:37:57, only 37 minutes slower than her winning time in 2016. Alisyn Hummelberg of Corona del Mar, Calif. and Lindsey Herman of Albuquerque, N.M., came across the line for second and third, two hours after Gallagher finished.   Macdonald remained composed early on, mixing things up with a pack of 10 runners until the mile 25 mark. A small gap at the front began to emerge over the next few miles as Macdonald set the pace. By the halfway mark, he established a 15-minute lead over the second-place runner.   Heading into this year's race, Macdonald was destined to repeat as the men's champion. Last year, he won dominantly in only his first 100-mile race. The Fort Collins, Colo., native continued to extend his lead over the final 50 miles, coming to the finish line in 16:05:44, beating his 2021 winning time by 13 minutes. Macdonald crossed the finish line more than two hours before JP Giblin of Scotland and Ryan Kaiser of Bend, Ore., came across for second and third, respectively.   See full results from Leadville Trail 100.   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Runs in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the week:   Collins Cup 2022: Race Highlights - Professional Triathletes Organisation (protriathletes.org)   The Smoothest Swimming Technique In The World?

I introduced myself to the coach that sat across from me at the table, who turned out to be Kurt Madden, who is a three Time Top 10 Finisher - Ironman World Championships; 2) Two Time Winner - Ultraman World Championships; 3) Two Time Age Group Winner - Ironman North American Championship; 4) Ironman All World Athlete - Ranked #1 in the World - Age Group - @ the Ironman distance in 2015 - 2106.   Saturday was classroom and dry land training. We learned the why behind the techniques and form being taught. We learned the cues for remembering various aspects of streamlining, arm recovery, hand entry and the power phase of the stroke. We learned how to identify technique problems and coach through them.   Sunday we were in the pool from 8-12 and applied everything we learned in the classroom to the pool. We started with 100 TTs for time to get a pre instruction baseline. We started with basic KOSS for more than an hour just working on balance in the water. The next hour and half was on the recovery mechanics and the last hour or the power phase and pulling it all together. We finished with a post instruction TT to see who made improvements. One coach went from 1:01 100M to a :59 100M. Some coaches took 4", 6", 8" and in one case 16" off their 100.   We will be offering 2Day TriDot Pool School around the country starting this Fall.   Upcoming Multisport Events in Colorado (runningintheusa.com) Upcoming Classic Runs in Colorado (runningintheusa.com)   Video of the week: Sam Long Takes On The Norwegian Hype Train

The weekend is the Leadville 100 MTB race.

The talented public speaker raced for two seasons with the men's professional team before splitting his time between sharing the team's mission to inspire, educate and empower, completing his university studies and starting his own business coaching and mentoring athletes.   The 35-year-old first discovered his love of biking at an early age. In high school, the Sydney-native noticed his best days were always the days he rode his bike to school. When the Sydney Olympics came to town, the mountain biking event and a key T1 diabetes role model in Aussie Rugby player Steve Renouf inspired him to start competing. After winning his first bike race, he never looked back.   Morris was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 10. He raced mountain bikes as a junior and at 18, added road racing to his regimen for cross-training purposes. On the road, he excelled. In 2009, Morris signed his first road contract with the Australian domestic team MACE/Wilson Racing and joined the Team Novo Nordisk development team in 2010.   Morris has never let his diabetes slow him down. In 2011, he finished fifth overall at the legendary Crocodile Trophy, a grueling 10-day Australian mountain bike event covering almost 750 miles. In 2016, he won the equally grueling Simpson Desert Bike Challenge, a five-day race on fat tire bikes across one of the world's largest sand deserts. Just prior to the pandemic Morris placed third overall at the Tour of East Timor, a stage race across the mountainous terrain in one of the world's newest nations and represented Australia at the world MTB marathon championships in Switzerland.   As a Team Novo Nordisk ambassador, Justin has worked around the world spreading the team's positive message. From 2017-2019, he took part in ‘Pedal for 7,' a successful cycle event that stopped at various hospitals, schools, and community groups across the UK. He has spent significant time speaking throughout Asia where cycling is not so mainstream to help promote the team and to drive change in diabetes.   Let's get into our interview.   POST INTERVIEW COMMENTS: All-Diabetes Pro Cycling Team | Type 1 Diabetes | Team Novo Nordisk Justin Morris - Team Novo Nordisk   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Big show today! We have Mark Allen with us today to talk about coaching and training on the TriDot training platform. We are going to ask Mark a few training and racing questions which I expect Mark will help us all get a little smarter at both.    Show Sponsor: UCAN Take your performance to the next level with UCAN Energy and Bars made with SuperStarch®  UCAN uses SuperStarch instead of simple sugars and stimulants to fuel athletes.  UCAN keeps blood sugar steady compared to the energy spikes and crashes of sugar-based products.  Steady energy equals sustained performance and a faster finish line!   Use UCAN in your training and racing to fuel the healthy way, finish stronger and recover more quickly!  Use the code 303UCAN for 20% off at ucan.co/discount/303UCAN/ or ucan.co     In Today's Show Feature Interview - Mark Allen and TriDot Training Systems Endurance News Norseman Extreme Triathlon August 6th Riders furious with Vuelta a Burgos mass crash: 'To allow a finish with a speed bump is a disgrace. Unacceptable' What's new in the 303 Boulder 70.3 moves to June in 2023 Video of the Week  Tim Hola interview before Norseman   Feature Interview: Mark Allen and TriDot   Last Spring, friend of the show Matt Bach introduced us to TriDot. I started using the platform and learning how it works. I leaned how it takes data from my training and racing and uses it to adjust future training so that I get the most perfect training workout, structured in the perfect way, and with the exact intensity for the temperature and altitude the workout is being performed.    As an athlete, it's a no brainer. As a coach, I started to realize the way it could help me spend more time with athletes on the qualitative aspects of helping athletes with things like swim technique, video analysis, nutrition, bike handling, etc.   Fast forward to about a month ago when TriDot announced that Mark Allen was joining TriDot as a coach. During the announcement, Mark shared what he chose to partner with TriDot and bring his athletes over to the platform. I also took the opportunity to be coached by Mark.   If you tuned in last week, you heard us discuss the "Ask Me Anything" event last week with Mark and his answers to some excellent training and racing questions. It is with that backdrop that we head into our feature interview with Hall of Fame triathlete and coach, Mark Allen.   Let's get into our interview.   POST INTERVIEW COMMENTS: When Mark said TD takes into account temperature, humidity and altitude to make sure you are training at the right intensity. Explain Environment Normalization Training Zones are as accurate and current as your last test and tests are done every month Use the link on my profile or click here to try a two week app.tridot.com/onboard/sign-up/richsoares       More Mark Answers:   Question: What is the mental strategy when you want to skip a workout?   Answer: It's important to identify the key workouts each week. It's more important to balance the sport with the rest of your life. You don't want to lose all the other things that are important to save 3 minutes on the bike. If you find those key workouts, they will give you 80-90% of what you need. The other workouts will help, but they only get you the remaining 10-20%. If getting all your workouts in causes stress in other parts of your life, that's not the goal. If you are feeling like not training, you need to ask yourself if you are recovered enough. Listen to your body. There's no device or metric that can replace how you feel. I like to get out the door and if after 10 minutes you feel like you're full of lactate or feeling lethargic, then turn around and go back home.   Question: What are some of your mental strategies during tough spots in IRONMAN?   Answer: How you deal with it starts long before the race. There will things that will come up that you couldn't have expected. You don't need a perfect race to race perfectly. If your goggles get kicked off, put them back on. You drop a water bottle. Shake it off and get an extra the next time. When you get to the whining phase, I have to change the channel. Get to a mental state where you take a big breath, stop the voice in my head, and analyze what's going on. Maybe I can walk a bit and be steady quiet and engaged. What ever my potential attention and energy I can bring, bring 100% of that. What's my purpose? Do I drop out? My body is working at 20% capacity. If I can give 100% of the 20%, I'll do that. You will be proud of the peace, purpose and quiet and strength to finish.   Question: What is your inner dialogue when you are racing? Do you have a phrase or mantra?   Answer: You should have the positive affirmation. Early in my career I tried that. When you do fall apart, I was never able to remember the mantras. I'm not light as a feather on the marathon, I feel like an elephant. The most powerful place to race from is a quiet mind. In a way you tune everything out but yourself and your process and engaged in the moment and not judging. Try to lock in and give everything I have. There's a magical switch point where all of a sudden you realize you are giving everything I have that day.   Question: Tips for older athletes and taking days off.   Answer: I'm 64 and I don't take days off. You need to be tuned into your body and take a day off and recover and regenerate. You need to eat a little more good quality protein to stimulate the body to rebuild. Strength training is also key. It can be body weights and cords. If you just swim, bike and run.  20 year study on Boston Marathoners. 1 group just run. 2nd group that did strength and running kept all their muscle mass. Sleep and recovery. Protein and strength training.   Question: What hydration / nutrition to avoid cramps?   Answer: Different cramps have different reasons. Early in the swim your feet cramp - typically when you are under high stress. Your body excretes sodium and magnesium when under stress and your adrenal system kicks in. Okay to have a little anxiety. As best as you can load up on sodium and magnesium. You need to keep on top of magnesium all year. If late in the race the quads cramp, it's because you are putting more load on the quads during the race. Do strength work so you have extra muscle to utilize. Calf cramps come from being under stress for a long time. When your adrenal system gets depleted you get calf cramps. Side stitches come from fast shallow breathing. Slow down the breathing and take deeper breathing. Otherwise rub your knuckles on the sternum.   Question: What gets you most jazzed about the future of the sport?   Answer: Seeing this whole new generation of pros and redefining what is possible. We've had several generations. You can tell some of these great athletes like Daniel and Alistair are on the way out. The way these new athletes like Kristian Blummenfelt and the Sam Longs and Laura Phillips are a new generation that want to race the top folks. Not like it used to be were the new pros were scared cats.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance. Buddy Insurance gives you peace of mind to enjoy your training and racing to the fullest.

The Norseman Xtreme Triathlon is a gruelling challenge that's not for the faint of heart.   You're halfway up a mountain. The wind has been trying its hardest to stop you for 14 long hours, since you plunged into an icy fjord at around 5am. The past hour has been fuelled by adrenaline alone, carrying you on your way.   The annual event features a 3.8km fjord swim, a 180km cycle ride through the mountains and a 42.2km run/climb to the top of a local mountain. Phew! Let's take a look at the event, and how it came to be.   When it comes to Norway and multi-sport events you probably think of the biathlon. This unique combination of cross-country skiing and shooting is a tradition that arose in Scandinavia and is certainly still very popular in the region. However, the triathlon is growing in popularity every year, in all regions of the globe, and Scandinavia is no exception. But even when they're jumping on bandwagons, the Norse people like to do things a little bit differently.   People who know it, talk about the Norseman Triathlon in hushed tones of reverence and awe. Those who have won the black jersey – the only prize for finishing – are revered as Gods among men in athletic circles.   Riders furious with Vuelta a Burgos mass crash: 'To allow a finish with a speed bump is a disgrace. Unacceptable' As the Jumbo-Visma trio of Timo Roosen, Edoardo Affini and Chris Harper rode unchallenged across the finish line of stage two at the Vuelta a Burgos, securing the team all three steps on the podium, they celebrated what they thought was a dominant victory.   However, they were unaware of the carnage that had ensued behind. Their teammate David Dekker had hit a speed bump just 700m from the finish resultign in a mass pile-up.   Jumbo-Visma were looking to lead out the sprint for Dekker in the closing stages of the race, but, after a short descent and the pace ever-increasing, the Dutchman hit a speed bump and lost control of his bike, creating a domino-effect of riders falling behind him.   What's New in the 303:   IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder to shift dates on the calendar beginning in 2023 21st edition of long-standing Colorado event to take place on June 10, 2023; Presale registration to open on Thursday, August 4, 2022 by visiting, www.ironman.com/im703-boulder-register BOULDER, Colo. / TAMPA, Fla.

He went undefeated in 21 straight races for an incredible two-year winning streak. He has been inducted into the Hall of Fame for IRONMAN, USA Triathlon, and the International Triathlon Union. Allen has coached for 28 years and is now a coach on the TriDot platform.   Best Questions and Answer from Thursday, July 28th from 8-9pm CT:   Question: Why did you choose TriDot?   Answer: Paving the way for how this industry is going to change. This is the future of triathlon training. It's reached a point where there's too much data for a coach to evaluate and adjust training fast enough. Been watching this trend for many years. "This is what I've been looking for and I didn't know it existed."   Question: Besides nutrition, what is the diff between training for 70.3 and 140.6?  Do you recommend 70.3 first?   Answer: Experience is helpful to learn pacing and begin to understand nutrition. Misconception that the training is double. Fitness to do a 70.3 is 2/3 to 3/4s of what you need for an Ironman. Those long rides and runs get you the remaining training. You pace your race to give it everything you have for the distance. An Ironman feels a little bit longer than a 70.3.   Question: What is the most important skill to master as an athlete? Coach?   Answer: Pacing yourself. Follow the training, be consistent and make it a lifestyle. As a coach, respond to an athlete when they have a need. If it takes two weeks to get back to an athlete. I try to be very responsive. TriDot allows me to see what I do very efficiently. "Using this technology is a lot like using an MRI to diagnose an ailment vs a stethoscope."   Question: Key to a fast marathon?   Answer: Have pace yourself on the swim and the bike. Manage yourself, pace yourself and nutrition. Get extra fitness on the bike. Get out of the water fresh. Over distance in the swim and over distance on the bike. Marathon focus on preparing for what you can take in for nutrition. Do the brick workouts with the 20-40 minutes for running.   Question: What is the mental strategy when you want to skip a workout?  Advice to keep attacking it and getting better?   Answer: It's important to identify the key workouts each week. It's more important to balance the sport with the rest of your life. You don't want to lose all the other things that are important to save 3 minutes on the bike. If you find those key workouts, they will give you 80-90% of what you need. The other workouts will help, but they only get you the remaining 10-20%. If getting all your workouts in causes stress in other parts of your life, that's not the goal. If you are feeling like not training, you need to ask yourself if you are recovered enough. Listen to your body. There's no device or metric that can replace how you feel. I like to get out the door and if after 10 minutes you feel like you're full of lactate or feeling lethargic, then turn around and go back home.   Question: What are some of your mental strategies during tough spots in IRONMAN?   Answer: How you deal with it starts long before the race. There will things that will come up that you couldn't have expected. You don't need a perfect race to race perfectly. If your goggles get kicked off, put them back on. You drop a water bottle. Shake it off and get an extra the next time. When you get to the whining phase, I have to change the channel. Get to a mental state where you take a big breath, stop the voice in my head, and analyze what's going on. Maybe I can walk a bit and be steady quiet and engaged. What ever my potential attention and energy I can bring, bring 100% of that. What's my purpose? Do I drop out? My body is working at 20% capacity. If I can give 100% of the 20%, I'll do that. You will be proud of the peace, purpose and quiet and strength to finish.   Question: What is your inner dialogue when you are racing? Do you have a phrase or mantra?   Answer: You should have the positive affirmation. Early in my career I tried that. When you do fall apart, I was never able to remember the mantras. I'm not light as a feather on the marathon, I feel like an elephant. The most powerful place to race from is a quiet mind. In a way you tune everything out but yourself and your process and engaged in the moment and not judging. Try to lock in and give everything I have. There's a magical switch point where all of a sudden you realize you are giving everything I have that day.   Question: How do the principals in your book show up in your coaching?   Answer: Fit Soul / Fit Body. Each of those elements got me from trying to win to winning IRONMAN. Quiet the mind Key. What is your Quest? Why does this have important for you? Is it part of the fulfillment of being a part of a community? Live what you asked for? What does it take to win the IRONMAN? Follow what TriDot is telling you to do. Go hard when you need and easy when you need. Taught me how to be fulfilled even when I have bad days of training and racing. Nothing is inherently good or bad, it's just how you react to it. Phil Liggett looks like Mark Allen is a matching. I was just steady and controlled.   Question: Tips for older athletes and taking days off.   Answer: I'm 64 and I don't take days off. You need to be tuned into your body and take a day off and recover and regenerate. You need to eat a little more good quality protein to stimulate the body to rebuild. Strength training is also key. It can be body weights and cords. If you just swim, bike and run.  20 year study on Boston Marathoners. 1 group just run. 2nd group that did strength and running kept all their muscle mass. Sleep and recovery. Protein and strength training.   Question: What advice do you have for amateurs for longevity in the sport.   Answer: Be consistent. Be steady with your training and recovery. You can only absorb so much stress. If you overdo it you will become stressed and overtrained. This sport should bring fulfillment and happiness.   Question: If I go into my anaerobic zone during my aerobic, will I burn carbohydrate the rest of the workout.   Answer: Depends on how long and how fit. When you aerobic, your ancient genetics detects danger and the adrenal system starts and turns off fat burning and continues to burn carbohydrate. It's a survival adaptation. You go into high stress physiology. It's not a faucet you turn on and off. It's more like a river that continues to flow for several hours. That's why people bonk.   Question: What's the best marker for choosing to go pro?   Answer: What do you think your potential is? If you feel like your just getting going, go for it. If you're just barely there and you think your at your potential.   Question: What hydration / nutrition to avoid cramps?   Answer: Different cramps have different reasons. Early in the swim your feet cramp - typically when you are under high stress. Your body excretes sodium and magnesium when under stress and your adrenal system kicks in. Okay to have a little anxiety. As best as you can load up on sodium and magnesium. You need to keep on top of magnesium all year. If late in the race the quads cramp, it's because you are putting more load on the quads during the race. Do strength work so you have extra muscle to utilize. Calf cramps come from being under stress for a long time. When your adrenal system gets depleted you get calf cramps. Side stitches come from fast shallow breathing. Slow down the breathing and take deeper breathing. Otherwise rub your knuckles on the sternum.   Question: What gets you most jazzed about the future of the sport?   Answer: Seeing this whole new generation of pros and redefining what is possible. We've had several generations. You can tell some of these great athletes like Daniel and Alistair are on the way out. The way these new athletes like Kristian Blummenfelt and the Sam Longs and Laura Phillips are a new generation that want to race the top folks.

It was a dream start and it set up a memorable day for Ashleigh.   A well-paced bike ride followed, and the addition of a killer run resulted in $100k first prize courtesy of a comprehensive victory in the debut event of the 2022 PTO Tour. With a wedding coming up, it was quite timely! Gentle delivered in some style.   Swim – Lopes leads the way Brazilian short-course specialist and middle distance debutant Lopes, said goodbye to the rest of the field inside the first few minutes of the three-lap, 2km swim at Hawrelak Park.   With the field including Lauren Brandon (USA) and Sara Perez Sala (ESP), among the top-ranked swimmers from the PTO's number-crunching, that was an impressive start. Given that she exited the swim at Tokyo 2020 on the feet of Jess Learmonth in a very select group at the Olympic Games, perhaps not surprising – but still very impressive.   Brandon and Perez Sala were in the small chase group along with Julie Derron (SUI) and Gentle. That represented a fantastic start for the Australian, who had been a minute down on Perez Sala in the opening discipline (over a shorter distance), at CLASH Miami. If she could maintain that to the swim exit in Edmonton, a great start to her day.   Lopes did lead into T1, but Brandon was only 12 seconds back after a strong third loop, with Derron, Perez Sala and Gentle a further 10 seconds down. Unfortunately for Lopes, going the wrong side of one of the swim buoys would cost her a 30-second penalty later in the race.   Among the pre-race favourites chasing were Holly Lawrence (GBR), Paula Findlay (CAN), Ellie Salthouse (AUS) and Nicola Spirig (SUI) – all around 1:10 down, but not the best start for Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR) or Laura Philipp (GER) in relative terms. The Brit was 3:35 down, with Laura a few seconds further back. The German had four athletes behind her, and 27 ahead… time to go to work.   Bike – fast Findlay takes control The bike course in Edmonton comprised of four laps of 20km. As the race started to take shape going into lap two, Lopes – on her standard WTCS road bike – was still holding strong at the front but home favourite Findlay was now only 10 seconds back in second place, having made up 1:15 on the bike.   Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig (road bike, of course!) and Derron followed, just over 30 seconds down.   India Lee was seemingly having a great day (9th at this stage, +1:46) and riding just in front of Lawrence. Philipp had moved up to 16th (+2:57) and was riding quicker then everyone except Findlay.   Pallant-Browne's day looked as though it was all but over however. From riding with Philipp, she dropped from the timings suddenly, with news subsequently confirmed that she had suffered a front wheel flat. Very frustrating, and with $1million on the line and the last chance to display Collins Cup form, potentially very costly too.   The end of lap two represented the halfway mark of the ride, by which point Findlay's charge had seen her take the lead and continue to set the fastest splits on two wheels.   Findlay crossed the 40km time split with an advantage of just over a minute on a quartet of Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig and Lopes. Jocelyn McCauley was sixth, 2:08 back. Philipp was now in seventh, 2:40 back and continuing to gain ground.   Another lap on and the Findlay lead had grown to 1:34, with the chasing quartet of Gentle, Salthouse, Spirig and Lopes together. McCauley was still having a great race, 2:16 back in sixth, with Philipp holding pace to Findlay, but still 2:42 back in seventh. She would be hoping to reduce that a touch ahead of the upcoming 18km run.   Completing the top 10 at the 60km mark on the bike were Skye Moench (USA), Jacqui Hering (USA) and Lawrence (GBR), four minutes behind the hometown leader.   McCauley's progress continued through the final lap, which saw Findlay start the 18km run with a significant lead. Following on the four-lap course were Gentle (+2:04), Salthouse (+2:14), McCauley (+2:19), Philipp (+2:32) and Spirig (+2:42). After taking that penalty incurred in the swim, Lopes started the run in seventh (+3:32).   Run – Gentle takes control Gentle looked brilliant from the start of the run and immediately started gaining on the 2020 PTO Champion Findlay, reducing a 2:04 deficit to 1:35 within the first 2.5km. Philipp had moved into third and was also gaining on Paula – but most significantly she was losing time to Gentle, the 2018 ITU Grand Final winner.   At the end of lap one of four, Findlay's lead was down to just one minute over a flowing Gentle, but Philipp's charge from 28th exiting the water was perhaps coming to a stall. Still in third, she remained 2:30 back and was matching, but not catching, the pace of Paula. Unless anything changed, this was all pointing towards an Australian winner.   The inevitable pass came around the 7.5km mark, and by the midpoint of the run (9km), she was already 23 seconds up, with Philipp now three minutes back in third. Making rapid progress and now up to fourth was Chelsea Sodaro, who had finished a distant second to Philipp at IRONMAN Hamburg. The tables looked set to be turned here, unless the German could raise her pace over the closing kilometres.   Ashleigh Gentle PTO Canadian Open 2022 finish Photo by Darren Wheeler (www.thatcameraman.com) While she didn't get the win, a very happy Findlay held strong for second place and a $70k pay cheque.   The battle to complete the podium went to the final few hundred metres, when Sodaro hit the afterburners and left Philipp unable to respond.   PTO Canadian Open 2022 Results – Pro Women Saturday July 23, 2022 – 2km / 80km / 18km – Edmonton   Ashleigh Gentle (AUS) – 3:30:54 Paula Findlay (CAN) – 3:33:16 Chelsea Sodaro (USA) – 3:34:56 Laura Philipp (GER) – 3:35:10 Julie Derron (SUI) – 3:36:18 Holly Lawrence (GBR) – 3:37:43 Vittoria Lopes (BRA) – 3:38:14 Ellie Salthouse (AUS) – 3:38:34 Sophie Watts (USA) – 3:39:28 Nicola Spirig (SUI) – 3:39:50 India Lee (GBR) – 3:45:04 Nikki Bartlett (GBR) – 3:46:15 Laura Siddall (GBR) – 3:49:06 DNF. Fenella Langridge (GBR) DNF. Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR)     PTO Canadian Open 2022 results: Gustav Iden tops Blummenfelt There was plenty of action on the run at the first ever PTO Canadian Open on Sunday, but when the dust settled, it was Team Norway topping the podium once again.   Gustav Iden took the spoils of victory (including a $100k cheque for first prize) as he came home in front of compatriot Kristian Blummenfelt.   That though tells just a tiny part of the story on what was an incident-packed day in North America.   Swim – Schoeman sets the pace When we previewed the Pro Men's race in Edmonton, one of the factors we mentioned was the quality of swimmers in the field and the likelihood that the pace would be on from the start.   That, not surprisingly, proved to be the case and we saw an elite group of six break clear, headed out of the water by Henri Schoeman (RSA). Separated by just 17 seconds, Schoeman was joined by Aaron Royle (AUS), Alistair Brownlee (GBR), Sam Laidlow (FRA), Ben Kanute (USA) and Kyle Smith (NZL). Plenty of biking legs there too.   The chasers were led by Olympic, World Triathlon and IRONMAN World Champion, Blummenfelt (NOR), who was 1:16 back on the pace-setting Commonwealth Games gold medallist. The Blummenfelt ‘group' was significant, and included the likes of Miki Taagholt (DEN), Frederic Funk (GER) and Iden (NOR).   All told there were 23 athletes within two minutes of the leader after the opening three-lap, 2km swim in Hawrelak Park, but as expected, Lionel Sanders (CAN) was not one of them. ‘No Limits' was 34th of 37 in the water, 3:48 down. The slowest T1 of the entire race, by some margin, was hardly helping his cause, and he would start the bike in 35th.   Bike – Brownlee and Laidlow break clear 20km down – the end of lap one of four – and Laidlow and Brownlee had gained a small advantage, 21 seconds up on Smith and Royle. They in turn were now 10 seconds clear of Kanute and Schoeman.   The Blummenfelt/Iden/Taagholt/Funk and co. chase group started lap two 1:44 back. Sanders had Sebastian Kienle (GER) for company, but will still four minutes behind Brownlee and Laidlow at the front, but now up to 26th.   Brownlee and Laidlow continued to work well at the front, swapping the lead and both clearly fully focussed on optimising the bike section. 40km in and they were now 47 seconds up on Smith who was now riding solo.   Royle, Schoeman and Kanute had now been swept up by the Norwegian express, who has slightly reduced their deficit to 1:32. The pressure was on though, and that group was now down to just seven.   Sanders was losing nothing – but while now up to 20th and still more than four minutes back, he was gaining nothing in time terms either.   The second half of the ride didn't see too much change in terms of the shape of the race. A few seconds here and there, but when the T2 dismount line arrived, it was still Brownlee and Laidlow leading the way. Alistair's dismount however was pretty poor – clearly crossing the line.   The chase group was 1:07 back comprising of Iden, Funk, Blummenfelt, Smith, Royle, Taagholt, Pieter Heemeryck (BEL) covering 3rd-9th in close order. Sanders completed the top-10 (alongside Andrew Starykowicz) at this point and has gained back some time. He was 3:19 back as he headed towards his bike rack.   Run – Gustav holds on as Kristian battles back A late entry to the event, Brownlee had said pre-race that the run was where he was likely to struggle, courtesy of a lack of enough running miles, and he certainly didn't look too good over the opening mile as Laidlow took the lead.   Ominously, Iden and Blummenfelt were now practically stride-for-stride and less than a minute back. They also looked, well, like they usually do – brilliant.   Clearly in pain, Alistair was soon struggling big time, dropping back through the field and seemingly in danger of a DNF. In Brownlee terms, he was in hobble mode and it was painful to watch, from an athlete who has been one of the greatest we've ever seen.   Laidlow started the second lap of four with a 16 second lead, but his chances of maintaining that spot for another 4.5km were basically zero, with the way that Iden and Blummenfelt were flying… and then suddenly Blummenfelt came to an abrupt halt with an apparent hip flexor / quad injury / cramp.   Brownlee broken, Blummenfelt hobbling and just as Iden moved into the lead, Laidlow pretty much came to a stop too with cramps. Carnage all over the course – and all within about 10 minutes. Unexpected excitement and lots of things to be considered for each athlete, considering future season plans and avoiding long-term damage.   With his biggest potential challengers falling away, Iden was now in prime position. At the midway point of the run, his lead was a minute and a half over Blummenfelt, who had seemingly had his own Terminator moment, regenerated, and was looking (very) good again. Remarkable – but given his last 18 months, why expect anything different?   Aaron Royle was continuing to have a great day, holding third place (+1:48), followed by Laidlow, Heemeryck, Funk and Taagholt.   Sanders (+3:44), Smith (+3:45) and Collin Chartier (+4:55) rounded out the top ten with 9km of running remaining.   With one 4.5km lap remaining, Gustav continued to lead – but Big Blu was not giving up, bouncing back, gaining time and just 56 seconds in arrears. Surely even he couldn't take this victory?   At the final turnaround – 2.25km to go – Blummenfelt had cut that 56 seconds to 43 seconds. Exciting racing certainly, but the odds were definitely in favour of the reigning and two-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion.   So it proved, and despite the best efforts of his training partner, the legend of the lucky hat remained intact as Gustav Iden took victory at the PTO Canadian Open by just 27 seconds.   Royle capped a fantastic all round performance to complete the podium, ahead of an impressive Laidlow who, like Blummenfelt, bounced back from his mid-race issues for a superb fourth position.   Not the day he wanted, but if you'd told me at 3km that Brownlee would even finish the race, I'd have said you are mad. Kudos to the twice Olympic champion for showing his grit to complete the race.   Gustav Iden Kristian Blummenfelt Aaron Royle photo credit Jamie Dellimore PTO Canadian Open [Photo credit: PTO Canadian Open] PTO Canadian Open 2022 Results – Pro Men Sunday 24 July 2022 – 2km / 80km / 18km – Edmonton   Gustav Iden (NOR) – 3:10:48 Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR) – 3:11:15 Aaron Royle (AUS) – 3:14:26 Sam Laidlow (FRA) – 3:14:47 Frederic Funk (GER) – 3:14:56 Pieter Heemeryck (BEL) – 3:15:23 Lionel Sanders (CAN) – 3:15:49 Max Neumann (AUS) – 3:16:39 Kyle Smith (NZL) – 3:17:02 Miki Taagholt (DEN) – 3:17:14 David McNamee (GBR) – 3:19:07 Alistair Brownlee (GBR) – 3:23:15   What's New in the 303:   Boulder 70.3 Preview and Athlete Information - Athlete Guide General: 20th Anniversary of this epic race!

Here's What You Need to Know About the Inaugural Tour de France Femmes The Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift begins on July 24 and runs for eight days across northeast France. The race features 144 women from 24 teams, and it covers 640 total miles of racing. There are four flat stages, two hilly ones, and two mountain stages, with one finishing up the legendary La Super Planche des Belles Filles climb in the Vosges mountains. Read also: A brief history of the ‘women's Tour de France' Race organizer, sponsors, and media partners have promised that this will not be the first and last Tour de France Femmes. Presenting sponsor Zwift has pledged to back the race for at least four years, and fitness app Strava is in for three. NBC Sports signed a two-year deal to broadcast the race in the U.S. The long-term financial backing will hopefully help the Tour de France Femmes avoid the financial struggles that doomed previous attempts to build a viable women's Tour.   PTO Canadian Open in Edmonton, 23-24 July - PTO+ will launch as a free, registration-only service PTO Canadian Open ‘Countdown To Canada' show available globally Men's Rankings - PTO statistics, results and rankings (protriathletes.org) Women's Rankings PTO statistics, results and rankings (protriathletes.org) London: The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has entered a multi-year partnership with Endeavor Streaming to launch a brand-new OTT offering that will form the cornerstone of an ambitious strategic digital venture between the companies.

At around 36 kilometres from the finish, on a section of straight road, the protesters sat on the course and set off red flares. The stage breakaway and peloton were both halted until the road was cleared.   Climate activists from the Derniere Renovation movement said: “Since the government doesn't care about the climate crisis, we need to come and take over the Tour de France to refocus attention on what matters for our survival. We need to make our government react as they lead us to the slaughterhouse.   “Non-violent disruption is our last chance to be heard and avoid the worst consequences of global warming,” the group said.   The Tour de France organisers, ASO, declined to comment on the protest. Commentating on the scene on an in-race motorbike, Sir Bradley Wiggins told Eurosport viewers: “It really was going off. It was quite crazy. A lot of people getting quite angry, some of the directeur sportifs got out the cars, stuck a boot in.”   The Derniere Renovation group was responsible for an interruption at the French Open tennis, when a protester jumped on to the court and tied herself to the net, wearing a T-shirt saying: “We have 1,028 days left”. In the Tour protest, they were seen wearing T-shirts stating: “We have 989 days left”.   The Tour has long been the target of protests but this took place against the backdrop of the race organisers pledging their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint. This year's “road book”, the manual given to all those working on the race, states that the Tour is “resolutely committed to being an increasingly eco-responsible organisation.”   In 2020, during the pandemic Tour, the race was criticised by recently elected “green” mayors in some of France's major cities. The mayor of Lyon, Gregory Doucet, described the Tour as “macho and polluting” and lacking an environmental conscience, and there have been multiple calls for the race to further reduce its carbon footprint.   The final outcome of the race itself was put into doubt when the race leader Tadej Pogacar's UAE Emirates team were hit by two Covid‑19 positive tests, just 48 hours after all riders in the peloton were tested and declared free of the virus.   George Bennett, one of the defending champion's key mountain support riders, and teammate Rafal Majka, both tested positive on Tuesday morning in Morzine. Bennett withdrew from the race while Majka was allowed to continue racing on the grounds that he was asymptomatic.   On Saturday another of Pogacar's team, Vegard Stake Laengen, also tested positive and withdrew. The eight-man team with which Pogacar started in Copenhagen is now reduced to six, with Majka's continuation uncertain.   “As per our internal protocols, Majka was tested for Covid-19 and returned a positive result this morning,” the UAE Emirates team said in a statement.   “He is asymptomatic and analysing his PCR, [we] found he had a very low risk of infectiousness, similar to the case of Bob Jungels [the AG2R Citroen rider who tested positive in Copenhagen] earlier in the race.” The Australian rider Luke Durbridge (Team BikeExchange) also tested positive and was withdrawn from the race.   ASO moved to restrict media access to the team buses, or the paddock, saying that “only representatives of the UCI (jury, commissaires, anti-doping), the teams' staff and the organisation's personnel supervising the teams will have access to the paddock”. Access to the finish lines, for the media, remains unchanged.   Magnus Cort Nielsen of the EF Education-EasyPost team won the stage in a photo finish from Nicholas Schultz, a teammate to the absent Durbridge. Lennard Kämna, of Bora Hansgrohe, one of the day's breakaways, moved to within 11 seconds of the race leader Pogacar but is expected to drop back in the next 48 hours, which includes summit finishes at Alpe d'Huez and the Col du Granon.   Van Aert gives Tour de France green jersey to fan who lent him a pump Stage 11 of the Tour de France was a big day for Jumbo-Visma, who claimed the race lead with Jonas Vingegaard, but the day was even bigger for one lucky spectator on the roadside of the Col du Granon.   Wout van Aert was coming back down the Col du Granon from the finish of stage 11 of the Tour de France after the podium ceremony for the points classification - which he leads by a huge margin - and had a slow leak in his tyre and no Jumbo-Visma mechanic in sight.   The Belgian stopped during the descent to his team bus and some cyclists quickly offered up a frame pump so Van Aert could add some air to his tubeless tyre.   In thanks, Van Aert gave one cyclist the green jersey off his back - literally telling him to unzip the back of the podium version of the green jersey and have it as a souvenir.   The moment was captured by Italian journalist and cyclist Michele Pelacci who is riding in the Alps with his brother and watching the Tour from the roadside. He works for a number of Italian media including the Alvento magazine and the official Giro d'Italia podcast called GIROglifici.   He admitted he wasn't quick enough to get Van Aert's green jersey but captured the moment and shared photographs on Twitter.   “My brother punctured and we stopped at the side of the road to change the inner tube. Guess who stopped after five minutes? Wout van Aert," Pelacci wrote on Twitter.   "I said: Hey Wout, there's liquid coming out of your wheel. He looked at me stupidly and explained it was tubeless. He asked for a pump and an English guy offered him one. Wout told him: ‘You're a hero' and said: ‘I've got something for you, take the green jersey off my back, it's yours'.   “What did I learn from it all? Be the first to pass a pump to Wout van Aert because in exchange he could give you a special souvenir.”   Pro cycling is unique in how close fans can get to the riders and spectators clamour for discarded bidons. But to receive such a valuable keepsake is hors-categorie.   'A brilliant day' Van der Poel and Van Aert attacking during stage 11 of the Tour de France   Van der Poel and Van Aert attacking during stage 11 of the Tour de France (Image credit: Getty Images) Van Aert was likely in a generous mood because of his team's success on the day.   He attacked from kilometre zero, drawing out a breakaway and, after snatching some more points in the intermediate sprint, came back to help the team in its assault on race leader Tadej Pogačar.   Van Aert pulled Primož Roglič back to the yellow jersey group after the Slovenian had put in several stinging attacks, coming up and past the group like a high-speed train.   On the final climb, Vingegaard hardly needed his teammates as he leapt away with 4.5km to go to win the stage and snatch the race lead.   "It was a really big day, we prepared for this day - you could see we were all ready to give it a go and attack the yellow jersey," Van Aert said after the podium ceremony.   "It was not easy, I was in front ready to help Jonas and Primož toward the Granon, but apparently Tadej Pogačar could chase down the guys all the time. So at that moment, I thought it was going to be hard to do something. But I think because Laporte and I at the beginning of the stage we made him suffer already early on. That's why Jonas could break away on the final climb."   Van Aert's breakaway started with a familiar friend - fellow cyclocross racer Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Deceuninck) set aside their rivalry to help pull the breakaway clear only to be dropped on the first climb, the Lacets de Montvernier.   "The plan was to be in the breakaway and be the rider out front. That Mathieu was on my wheel was a nice surprise, it will be really cool pictures. We did a really fast first 30k, I really enjoyed it.   "Again I could take the points in the intermediate sprint, so a perfect day but especially for GC this was a brilliant day." For the fan who received his green jersey, it was undoubtedly an even more brilliant day.     What's New in the 303: Boulder Peak Sunday The Boulder Peak Triathlon was last Sunday. Raced with Lauren, her boyfriend Reed Henderson, Matt Emmet and Tom Beal. Also saw that Tim Hola was on the start list and talked to him for a while in transition. Tim won the 45-49 AG.

He finished just nine seconds short of the, at the time, world best time that Jan himself had set here six years ago – and more than nine minutes ahead of defending Roth champion and twice IRONMAN World Champion, Patrick Lange.

I think base salary is kind of table stakes, right? It's all [about] the other stuff that factors into how competitive is your job that you are trying to hire or retain people in.”“You mentioned pay transparency before— it's that transparency of the philosophy around how organizations pay. I think a lot of employees don't believe that their comp teams really know what they're doing, and I think that's because they just haven't been transparent.”

For those who are interested in being a part of the celebration please email diversity@usatriathlon.org.   The five-month celebration will include the Together, We Thrive Powerful Women in Multisport Series, a social and digital content series that will focus on women who helped pave the way for women to compete in triathlon. To kick off the series, USA Triathlon has highlighted on its social media pages nine women in multisport who share what Title IX means to them in its Nine Days of Title IX celebration.   USA Triathlon will give 10 multisport women's legacy packages to influential women in multisport, which includes one USA Triathlon Lifetime Membership and one free entry to USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, USA Triathlon Multisport National Championships and the Toyota Legacy Triathlon. USA Triathlon will also award the inaugural Together, We Thrive Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access Award.   USA Triathlon is launching its Women's Series, a series of locally organized USA Triathlon Sanctioned events across the country designed to grow and support the women's multisport community, in 2023. Applications to be included in the series will be accepted July through August with the formal announcement of participating events coming in late fall.
