  • One of our own hit on the bike.

    For those of you following along at home, I am sure you've read about Mitch's love for Gatorade in the Caringbridge updates. On the topic of the camaraderie of this sport as @Craig D mentioned, I wanted to give you a bit of background on the Gatorade care package Mitch received. I think it says so much about the friendships we make at races and here on the forum.

    Back in 2010 I was in Budapest with a friend that was racing ITU Worlds. My friend and I ended up meeting an athlete from Boulder. We became friends and have kept in touch through these years. Visits in Seattle and Boulder and even a trip to OtillO in Sweden two years ago when he raced and I helped sherpa.

    Anyway, my friend does rep work for Gatorade Endurance at events. We were chatting and I told him about Mitch. How I didn't really know him but enjoyed his postings on the forum and Jenna kept mentioning in the updates how much he liked Gatorade. I asked with Boulder 70.3 coming up, if he might be able to send Mitch some swag from his race stash. My friend (@traveledeyes on IG if you want to check out his cool photos of Boulder and environs) said he'd contact the team at Corporate he works with on events since they have the better stuff. He sent along Mitch's Caringbridge URL and within minutes, the team responded that they would send something immediately. This was just on Monday. It really does say so much about our community and how we come together at races or online and create friendships and care about each other.

  • Ben Hobbs - is that really you?

    @maggieru I admire you for taking the time to try to address these issues at Slowtwitch. You said what many of us feel but we just silently walked away. In my case it was disgust at the boy's club and the virtual handjobs given to Rappstar whenever he posts. I went back and checked the thread. Wasn't Rappstar the one who said that post was the "post of the year" or does my screen capture look like it was hacked? As a leader of Slowtwitch, it looks like he chose to condone that behavior. Anyone that's done any type of work in social media communities knows how banning users and praising users sets the tone of the forum and what is considered acceptable. I think you were perfectly right to call them out on the BS. It isn't "the forum", it is their management of the forum that allows that culture.

  • Share screenshots of your best ad placements on TriRoost

    I know I've seen a few screenshots of funny ad placements on TriRoost so thought I'd start a thread. I enjoy many discussions but sometimes my favorites are a result of the ads running in the discussions or the board. Here's what was running in my top banner just now.

  • POTM November 2017 - UPDATED SCORING

    Was it really a Kia? When friends bring up training accidents in conversations, I always shut them down by telling them your story and amazing recovery. But I always thought it was a big ol’ truck. I think at some point I took creative license and started saying the truck was rolling coal.

    I like my version better so think I will stick with it.

    I think this calls for a duet sung by Ben and Webstey of "Wind Beneath My Wings" on the next podcast.

    Fantastic! So nice to see you. We are all pulling for you. Your sister Jenna is amazing but you already know that. Really appreciate the updates she's been posting so we know how you are doing. Stay strong.

  • Tim Don = Badass (according to NYTimes)

    Fun fact. “Galen” means “crazy” in Swedish.

    It's really pretty insane. Especially when labeled as a highlights video. You could watch the full clip and still not know what the standings were after the first day of racing.

    Sadly, I am eagerly awaiting the upload of today's highlights. Will it also be in all slomo? I wonder if he was contractually obligated to deliver a 6min highlights video and didn't have enough video at regular speed to fill 6 mins so he went slomo....

    Okay bear with me as I'm new to this.

    Does leftover credits mean that I've still got something I can use to buy EPO for my riders?
    I think 2018 rules were updated to allow use of leftover credits for motors too.
