Transitions are often thought of as the 4th discipline of triathlon. The shorter the race, the more the transitions count!
TYB is proud to announce that we are now an official deal of Xtenex Laces. XTENEX® Accu-Fit Adjustable Compression Laces feature enlarged (auto-blocking) knots that can be manually reduced in diameter size by stretching the lace apart where the reduction is needed, either for lacing or adjustment, release to set your compression preference. Knots create an adjustable compression zone between each set of eyelets to provide a tuned ergonomic fit.
Utilizing Xtenex Laces in your running shoes will allow you to save valuable seconds in transition while also allowing for proper fit and feel of the lacing system without any unwanted pressure points that may take place with other quick lace systems.
Xtenex laces system can be purchased at the TYB Studio or purchased online by clicking HERE for $14.95.
As we roll into the first weekend of September, the racing continues throughout the Southeast and throughout the world!
First off, TYB Athletes Sandy O’Keefe and Jennifer Long travel to Cozumel next week for the ITU Age Group World Championships. After qualifying last year, Sandy and Jennifer are looking forward to representing USA at the ITU World Championships!
In North Carolina, TYB Athletes Tina Rich and Randy Parks race the always fun White Lake Half Ironman. Tina and Randy both are looking for some fun in White Lake. Tina will use this race as a “recovery style” weekend as she continues to prepare for Ironman North Carolina while Randy, coming off of Lake Logan Half 5 weeks ago, continues to use the long distance races to experiment and figure out his perfect race scenario.
Also, across the country, TYB Athlete Jimmy Bagnola races in Santa Cruz at Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz. Ready to roll, Jimmy looks for a solid day of swim, bike and run!
In South Carolina, TYB Athlete Frankie Valle heads down to the coast and races the new South Carolina Triathlon Series TriFecta Sprint Triathlon. Keeping it short and sweet and fast, Frankie continues to prepare for the end of the season Ironman Florida.
In any sport or competition there is the penultimate contest that makes a statement to the world that you are the best of the best.
In triathlon, where Ironman is the standard by which all triathlons are measured, these are the Ironman World Championships. This year the Ironman 70.3 Championship is held in Queensland, Australia.
