He may have started Sunday's PTO US Open ranked #28, but an unexpected victory in the Lone Star State will, by some margin, go down as the greatest day of his triathlon career to date. With a $100,000 first prize, it will certainly be the biggest pay day of his life to date.   With water temperatures reported as circa 27°c, of course, no wetsuits today for the 2km swim in Lake Carolyn. Unlike the swim at the PTO Canadian Open in Edmonton, there was a big line of swimmers at the front of the race. The athletes were perhaps backing off a couple of percentage points having seen the difficulties that some of the elite women got into late in their race on Saturday.   Aaron Royle (AUS) was first to the exit steps in 26:38, but immediately behind were the likes of Sam Laidlow (FRA), Ben Kanute (USA), Daniel Bækkegård (DEN). Vetle Bergsvik Thorn (NOR), Josh Amberger (AUS), Nick Kastelein (AUS), Tom Bishop (GBR) and plenty more… a total of 20 athletes within 22 seconds.   Among the key names a little further back were Frederic Funk (+1:00), Magnus Ditlev (+1:09), Sebastian Kienle (+2:30), Lionel Sanders (+2:37) and Sam Long (+2:42).   With so many athletes close starting the bike, it was going to take a lap or so of the seven loop circuit to see the shape of the race become clear.   As he did in Edmonton (though minus the injured Alistair Brownlee this time), Sam Laidlow was the first to make a move on the bike. 20km in and he was alone at the front, with Florian Angert nine seconds back, but with a further 30 seconds to the main chase pack. Still outside the top-20, Sam Long and Lionel Sanders were nonetheless the fastest riders on course and, as expected, enjoying the pure power time-trial friendly bike terrain.   Jumping forward another 20km to the midway point (40km) of the ride, and it was still Laidlow leading the way. Angert was still close behind in second (+0:06), but the chasers were now just over a minute down, a group including Mika Noodt (GER), Bækkegård, Bishop, Sam Appleton (AUS), Royle, Kyle Smith (NZL), Chartier (USA), Pablo Dapena Gonzalez (ESP), Ditlev and Long.   Lionel Sanders was still just over 20 seconds back on that group and would be hoping to make the same catch soon that Long already had.   Heading into the final quarter of the ride and Team ERDINGER athlete Angert was now leading the way. Second recently at the World Triathlon Long Distance Championships (over the same 100km distance), he is consistently strong across all disciplines.   The German was 29 seconds clear of early leader Laidlow, but the chasers were now led by bike powerhouses Long and Ditlev, with only Chartier and Bækkegård remaining in that select quartet. Little more than a minute down on Angert, it was still all to play for, especially with the mercury rising.   The attrition continued over the final stages. Bækkegård couldn't stay with the chasers, Laidlow was caught by Ditlev / Long / Chartier, and as they completed the 80km / seven laps and headed into transition, the leading situation was:   Florian Angert leading solo Magnus Ditlev and Sam Long in 2nd/3rd (+1:00) Collin Chartier and Sam Laidlow in 4th/5th (+1:10) Daniel Bækkegård in 6th (+2:08) Lionel Sanders, Thor Bendix Madsen, Kristian Hogenhaug in 7th/8th/9th (+2:31) No stopping the Chartier express Long absolutely blitzed through T2 with by far the quickest transition amongst the leaders. He wanted to drop Ditlev immediately, and set off in pursuit of Angert.   37th out of the swim, could Yo Yo Yo take the $100k prize cheque and the biggest win of his career to date? The heat was on – and Long looked as though he was trying to drink everything in sight during the first kilometre.   With five laps to complete, the athletes would soon be very used to the US Open run course. It's almost pan flat, but after that fast paced bike ride and temperatures approaching 100°F, not too many would be wishing for more hills.   Long took the lead shortly before the end of lap one and at this early stage, was looking strong in doing it too.   Two laps in and Long was leading Ditlev by 16 seconds, both athletes running at exactly the same pace, separated only by that fast transition from the U.S. athlete. Chartier was also having a stellar day, and had moved past Angert into third, 33 seconds behind Long, with just under 11km of running remaining.   Further back, the news wasn't so good for Sanders who was now in eighth, having been overtaken by Aaron Royle and Kristian Hogenhaug. Mika Noodt was closing fast too, meaning No Limits would need to turn things around pretty sharpish even to retain a top ten position.   PTO US Open 2022 results: Gently does it for Ashleigh   PTO US Open 2022 Results – Pro Women Saturday September 17, 2022 – 2km / 80km / 18km – Dallas   Ashleigh Gentle (AUS), 3:37:18 Taylor Knibb (USA), 3:38:33 Lucy Charles Barclay (GBR), 3:40:32 Holly Lawrence (GBR), 3:43:38 Lisa Norden (SWE), 3:44:50 Flora Duffy (BER), 3:45:18 Jocelyn McCauley (USA), 345:35 Rebecca Clarke (NZL), 3:47:01 Kat Matthews (GBR), 3:48:34 Paula Findlay (CAN), 3:49:09   Ashleigh Gentle was eighth into T2 but moved her way through the field on the run to make up nearly seven minutes and pick up the $100,000 winners cheque at the inaugural PTO US Open.   This was another big win for the Australian, after also winning the PTO Canadian Open. In her first race since May, Taylor Knibb finished second after leading for the vast majority of the day, and Lucy Charles-Barclay was third on her continued injury return.   It was no real surprise to see Charles-Barclay dive into an immediate swim lead at the start of the two-lap, non wetsuit swim. Taylor Knibb managed to jump onto her feet and stubbornly stay there throughout the whole 2km. Charles-Barclay exited after 27:02 with Knibb just two seconds behind.   Rebecca Clarke was third out of the water and Flora Duffy exited just behind in fourth place – uncharacteristically, the Olympic and Commonwealth Games champion was over a minute down on Charles-Barclay.   Knibb lost time in transition compared to the Brit as she had to remove her swim skin, but took off at speed on the bike. Knibb more than made up for lost time on the bike. She passed Charles-Barclay within the first two kilometres of the 80km ride and never relinquished her lead.   Charles-Barclay saw a nutrition bottle fly off the back of her bike after just 20km and also slowed to a stop to adjust her problematic gears. Her next bottle also stubbornly refused to go into the rear mounted cage and ended up being stuffed down the front of her trisuit, until it too ended up on the floor. With the mercury rising, not a day for such problems.   Knibb started well but was suffering in the heat and reduced to a walk at times by half way around the 18km course. Charles-Barclay found a rhythm, but looked somewhat laboured. That was likely a combination of the conditions, her hydration problems on the bike plus of course the continued rebuilding from her injury.   By contrast, Ashleigh Gentle was running through the field at pace, passing Duffy, Norden, Findlay and Lawrence on the way. She took the lead from Knibb on the final run lap of five.     Ask a cycling coach: 'How fit can I get on a 10-mile commute to work?' Here's how to best go about mixing up your commute for maximum fitness gains A lot of cyclists ride to work. However, rather than simply being a mode of getting from home to your desk, the daily commute can form an important part of your training. My experience with athletes is that the daily commute is an undervalued and underutilised chunk of training time. So, to change that and to maximise on the many benefits of commuting by bike, let's explore some ways in which you can make the most of this time on the bike and explore how it can tell us a little about the training process at the same time. Sports scientist and coach James Spragg is one of the experts who will be answering your questions in Cycling Weekly's ASK A CYCLING COACH series which comes out every Wednesday. Working both in research and applied settings, he currently runs Intercept Performance Consultancy.   One fundamental component of training is called progressive overload. This is the notion that to continue improving, you need to keep challenging your body with new, increasingly greater stimuli. If you don't do this, you will get stuck in a training rut and simply plateau at a given level of fitness. There are three main ways through which training load can be increased:   1) Increase the overall training time - or ‘volume', as it is often referred to   2) Increase the training frequency – the amount of sessions you do per day or week   3) Increase the training intensity – how hard you ride in each ride   Your daily commute is, most likely, a fixed distance, and happens twice a day; therefore, points one and two (volume and frequency) cannot be altered. This leaves point three – intensity.   The great thing about intensity is that you can increase the stimulus without simultaneously increasing the training time. This makes it the perfect way to induce progressive overload in a ride with a fixed distance, duration and frequency.   When it comes to intensity in short rides, I am a big fan of adding sprints. Sprints are a great tool for three reasons. Firstly, they are easy to include in rides, I would be very surprised if there weren't at least a couple of sections on most commutes where it is safe and convenient to get in a few sprints.   Secondly, they don't take much time to complete, so a minor detour can always be taken to get them done. And three, they are a very flexible method of training that can be tailored to bring about ‘aerobic' or ‘anaerobic' gains; the key is to adjust the recovery.   The great thing about sprinting is that because you are always producing a maximal effort, as you get stronger and fitter, you produce more and more power and the training stimulus progresses naturally.   What's New in the 303:   Triathlon Adventure in Trinidad Like No Other and a Bang for a Finish By Bill Plock   Many triathlons end with a “bang”, but not many, maybe none end with a bang when an athlete shoots a shotgun at clay targets as a fourth discipline—after running, paddling and riding.   On September 10th near Raton New Mexico about 80 athletes trail ran, paddled kayaks and rode a treacherous 16 mile dirt road crossing the New Mexico/Colorado border ending in Trinidad Colorado.  Their “triathlon”, really a quadrathon finished by shooting clay targets. The Purgatory 4 Adventure Relay (aka Purg4) is named after the Purgatorie river, the main river running through Trinidad.   Btw, about 80 miles downstream, after a 6 mile hike, one way, you can see North America's largest dinosaur track area along this river—look up Picketwire Canyon   It's not large (yet) but the Purg4 attracts adventurous athletes from all over. Relay teams are popular making up more than half of the participants. Some teams are multigenerational with one athlete offering a skill like shooting or paddling while the other family members run or cycle.   Others are long time friends spread throughout the mid-west by life who reunite for some fun like Neal, Jake, Sunny and Eric. Friends since their college days in eastern Nebraska they came together; Neal still residing in Nebraska and the others from Amarillo, Texas. Each a “specialist” attracted to what they collectively called “something different”.   Neal happily made the nine hour trip not only to see friends and try something different but as a veteran marathon and half marathon runner, “I knew I needed some motivation to get me back into racing after being fairly dormant during Covid. This just seemed cool and a great way to see some friends and try something different, I loved it! It is motivating me to sign up for other races”.   The Purg4 starts in Lake Maloya located mostly in New Mexico in Sugarite Canyon State Park. The lake itself crosses the Colorado border. It's nestled in a thickly treed valley sitting at 7,500 feet above sea level.  Athletes run across the dam and onto trails wrapping around Little Horse Mesa gaining a few hundred feet of elevation before returning to transition. They then paddle about a mile around the lake before riding to Colorado and shooting. It's a challenging 16 mile ride over San Fransisco pass topping out at 8,500 feet and finishing at Trinidad State's Prator Gun Range for some clay target shooting. (Trinidad State has a world renown gunsmithing program by the way)   “To try something different” seemed to resonate with most contestants. But it's more than that according to race director Jared Chatterley, director of Outdoor Recreation for Trinidad, “I love the camaraderie the event creates. Between participants, between volunteers, sponsors and hosting organizations; it is awesome to how the event brings people together.”   Trinidad, a town that has seen its share of booms and busts over the last 150 years, is trying hard to utilize vast outdoor recreation assets practically within town limits. Two state parks border town. The fairly new Fisher State Park towering over town, beams with miles of trails for biking and hiking. Just to the west is Trinidad Lake State park with a huge reservoir with endless roads and trails to explore.   When asked why this race is so important to Trinidad, Jared says, “One of the goals of the city of Trinidad and the Trinidad Office of Outdoor Recreation is to make Trinidad an outdoor recreation destination. Besides developing and promoting outdoor recreation assets and programs we want to host and promote outdoor recreation signature events.  The Purgatory 4 Adventure Relay was designed to attract adventure racers to the area but also showcase the outdoor recreation opportunities Trinidad and the region have to offer.”   In recent years gravel riding has exploded in this area and on October 8th the Rad Dirt by Lifetime Fitness will kick off its second year of racing in the Spanish Peaks area with a start and stop in downtown Trinidad. Here is a good article by Becky Furuta about her experience at the Rad Dirt last year:   Here is a link to a great resource that offers many gravel routes to come explore on your own. https://visittrinidadcolorado.com/gravel-adventure/.   There is so many recreation opportunities around this area and with the lake in Trinidad State Park it seems ripe for a more traditional triathlon. When asked, Jared said, “ Currently the TOOR (Trinidad Office of Outdoor Recreation) doesn't plan to sponsor any further triathlons or adventure races but we would be very supportive of any individual or organization that would.  A triathlon that would incorporate the Trinidad Lake would be a great idea.”   With the triathlon season winding down, there are a couple of notable, somewhat different triathlons still open in the mountains of Colorado. The Black Canyon Triathlon in Montrose takes place October 1st and the Splashland Triathlon in Alamosa, finishing with a hot springs swim is October 15th.   Here is an article about the Alamosa triathlon: https://303cycling.com/a-lot-more-than-meets-the-eye-at-tri-in-alamosa-cool-tie-to-amelia-earhart-and-farm-that-built-pool/     Swim Tips Continued Last week I gave a half tip on the question we discussed last week regarding the reach, glide and catch.

Now the radio propagation report, compiled by G0KYA, G3YLA, and G4DDK on Friday 23rd September 2022. Last week saw the solar flux index decline very slightly to 137. The good news is that we have had reasonably-settled geomagnetic conditions. The highest Kp index has been three, but it has often been at zero or one. This is good news as it means that the ionosphere has had a chance to develop. The MUF over a 3,000km path has often exceeded 28MHz, especially in the early afternoons. This will probably improve further as we head into late September and early October. The result is that some good DX has been available. J20EE in Djibouti, Africa has been workable on 10m CW, as has ZD7BG on St Helena. And ZL7/K5WE on Chatham Island is reported to have been “very easy” to work on 40m. The 4X6TU IBP beacon in Givatayim, Israel on 28.200MHz has been audible down to one watt recently, which is very encouraging. Numerous North American low-power beacons have also been audible, including the five-watt K5TLL on 28.298MHz in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. As we head into next week, the Sun will be dominated by active regions 3105 and 3107. Region 3015 is actually the remains of AR 3089. A cluster of sunspots in 3105 continue to turn into view off the southeast limb and for now, they remain mostly stable, however minor solar flares will be quite possible. NOAA predicts that the solar flux index may decline to the mid-120s next week. Geomagnetic conditions are predicted to remain calm, at least until the 29th when the Kp index is predicted to rise to five or even six. A single CME could soon disrupt the calm so don't expect the good conditions to last. And now the VHF and up propagation news. The weather has a noticeable autumn flavour to it lately and the coming week is continuing that theme. As this was being prepared on Wednesday evening, there is a hint of tropo over the southern half of the British Isles, but as soon as a cold front completes its journey south on Thursday, we enter a period of cooler north-westerly winds. This will bring rain and showers and means that for most of this weekend and next week, rain scatter is a good option for the GHz bands. Late in the week, and probably nearer next weekend, we find another high edging closer to Ireland and western Britain, perhaps bringing some patchy Tropo down the western side of the country. A further possibility is for meteor scatter and auroral propagation to present themselves as an option, but see the HF section earlier for the solar details and implications. The Kp index rising above five will be a useful guide for the chance of aurora. There are no major meteor showers in the coming week, although towards the end there may be some early Orionids shower reflections. This shower will peak between the 2nd and 7th of October. It is also worth watching for reflections during the daytime from the Sextantid meteor shower, which is active until the 9th of October. The peak is expected to be around the 27th of September. Good hunting! The Moon will be low in the sky throughout this week and as this coincides with the Moon getting closest to the Earth, path losses will be the lowest. With the equinox now past, the Sun will not appear above the Ecliptic again for another six months. This will make Sun-to-cold-sky noise measurements less easy. If you need to make these measurements, and there are a few EME operators who don't, now is probably a good time to do them before those horizon trees get in the way! And that's all from the propagation team this week.

Triathletes Non Stanford and Aaron Royle join us in conversation. Non announced she would be retiring from triathlon in 2022, after being crowned European Champion and winning silver in the mixed team relay with Wales at the Commonwealth Games, a decade after her first World Championship title. Her partner Aaron Royle from Australia was also World U23 Champion and has competed at two Olympics. In 2022, Aaron finished 3rd at the PTO Canadian Open in Edmonton and made his Collin's Cup debut. You'll hear: 09:30 Non talks about winning silver for Wales in the mixed relay at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, ahead of Australia who won bronze. "It was a dream," says Non. "I don't think i could believe it. Everyone loves an underdog don't they? It was really emotional for everyone." 15:30 We talk about Welsh pride when watching sports. 18:00 Non on becoming European Champion. "I went into the race with very low expectations and I just went into it wanting to have fun. Whenever I'm super chilled, i seem to do well." 20:00 Non talks about retiring from triathlon and her final appearance in a GB vest. Aaron also talks about how Non had considered retiring in 2018. 28:00 Non's next steps, branching into coaching at the Leeds Triathlon Centre for British Triathlon.

"I lost all strength from it when i got it wrong before the Rio Olympics." It's pretty miserable when you're denying your body what it needs," says Non. "It is getting better," she adds. 50:30 Aaron and Non talk about their upcoming wedding in the winter of 2022. 53:00 The best things about Australia and Wales, according to Non and Aaron.

I have been looking forward to my discussion with Celeste Ferraris OLY for a while now and it did not disappoint! Celeste is a Clinical Nutritionist with a special interest in the gut microbiome and how food affects mood. Celeste gives us a really good overview of the gut microbiome, what our gut bacteria do for us and what can happen when our bacteria is out of balance. Celeste’s current research for her PhD is about the association between a liking for salty foods and depression, stress and anxiety. It is a fascinating area including how we experience taste and how our neurotransmitters many be involved. In terms of future implications of Celeste’s research, alternation in taste may be used as a screening tool for mood disorders, like depression. Reliable, non-invasive screening tools are important as screening can lead to diagnosis and then treatment. We also discuss Celeste's Olympic and Commonwealth Games success as a synchronised swimmer. It may be one of the lesser known Olympic sports but I was fascinated to hear about it, especially the rigorous training regime involved.

Women athletes are rising in the ranks across many different sports, and in this episode, we speak to Tiffany Cromwell, who is pushing the bar for competitive women's cycling. Tiffany is a highly respected figure in the sport and competes internationally for CANYON//SRAM Racing Team. She is currently competing on the world circuit, where she is considered to be fierce competition amongst her teammates and rivals.

She is driven by her desire to raise awareness about women's cycling in Australia and worldwide. Recently, Tiffany has embraced the Gravel scene, which has pushed her out of her comfort zone. In our conversation, Tiffany shares some of her recent gravel cycling experiences and what made her first interested in the relatively new cycling movement. We talk about the various international competitions she has raced in, her immense success as a professional cyclist, and what she has planned for the rest of the season. Hear what she enjoys most about riding GRVL and some of her favorite moments of her professional cycling career. We also dispel misconceptions about women's cycling and learn why it is so important.

Jones competed in her first Australian Clay Target Association (ACTA) national championships at the age of 13, held at Wagga Wagga in 2013. The following year she won six medals at the ACTA national championships at Wagga Wagga and the National Women's Champion of Champions in the mixed 12 gauge/20 gauge event with a score of 99/100. In late 2014 she switched from American Skeet to ISSF skeet in order to achieve her Olympic and Commonwealth Games aspirations. At her first competitive ISSF skeet shoot in October 2014, she won the Victorian Ladies' Championship at Werribee Clay Target Club. In 2015 she competed in her first international competition, finishing 23rd in the junior world championships and 6th in the ISSF junior cup. In early 2016 she became the youngest winner of the Australian National Skeet Championship at the age of 15. Aislin Jones represented Australia in Women's Skeet at the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, finishing in 17th place. She was the second youngest Australian athlete, and the youngest of the 390 shooting athletes from around the world. At 16 years of age, she was also the youngest Australian shooter ever to compete at any Olympic Games In October 2017 she broke the Oceania Women's Skeet, junior and senior record and in January 2018, at the Australian Nationals in Echuca she won the Commonwealth championship, Australian Championship and High Gun.

Rapha presents Life in the Peloton! It's no secret I'm a newbie on the MTB scene. Having raced on the road for 14 years I'm still finding my footing out on the trails. But I'm a firm believer that you learn by doing, and this year I have loved the challenge of getting out and competing in local events. Over the weekend I took part in the Reef to Reef - a 4 day mountain bike stage race on the Tropical North East coast of Australia. It's one of the 3 'epic series' in Australia and I thought it would be a great challenge to tackle. But also a bit of fun to enter as part of a team. I knew I needed someone with a little more experience than me, so I signed up for the mixed pairs event with 6 x Australian MTB & Gravel Champion Holly Harris. I'd never raced with Holly before, or a four day MTB event for that matter, but that was all part of the fun and challenge - and I thought, whether we pull it off or not, it would be great to take you guys with us. I wanted to capture the fantastic atmosphere of the 4 day event, give you guys a little bit of insight into the race and especially mixed pairs racing. But also to learn a little more about Holly, her career - getting so close to Commonwealth Games selection and how she tackles these events. I can tell you she taught me a thing or two! I hope you enjoy the insight, as you'll hear it was a lot of fun with a bit of hard work in between. Stay tuned next week for a special MTB edition of Talking Luft with Holly Harris!
