"I take my Ogio luggage with me where ever I go. I travel a lot for work and my bag is filled to the max. It takes a beating but i never worry about the durability. Very reliable. Thank you Ogio"

"Can't say enough about these delicious life saving bars of goodness.
They are not too heavy or dense and the flavor choices are amazing!
Something I actually look forward to eating while training.

Normatec
"Used these recovery boots at an IM expo then fell in love with them. I was fortunate enough to be selected for this team and have Normatec as a sponsor. Use them almost daily and fell great the next day!"

PhD Nutrition
"PhD Nutriton products have single handedly increased my ability to train at higher levels. By providing me with the right supplements to have high intensity workouts, coupled with the right recovery tools, I am able to peak at the right time and sustain longer times at faster paces. This has allowed me to have one of my best seasons in years. "

Greg Witherow

PowerTap
"Training with power has really taken my cycling to another level and I can always rely on my PowerTap pedals to give accurate feedback to dial in my training and racing! Easy to use and very durable - you can't go wrong with PowerTap!!!"

Bryan Lamb

Beet Performer
"As a kid, I grew up hating beets. I'm not even 100% positive if I ever even ate one or not, I just hated them.
Prior to joining the team, my wife turned me on to beets - which she used a juicer to make them. One huge problem is that this required time to actually prep the beets for juicing, time to actually juice them, and a ton of time to clean the juicer afterwards. HUGE HASSLE and it moved us away from drinking beet juice.
Enter Beet Performer. It made everything so easy - simply pop open a can and guzzle it down. Tastes great, is very reasonably priced (especially if you get the specials from their newsletter HINT HINT), and gives you all the benefits of using beets without any of the hassle. It's a win/win."

Big Sexy Racing Sponsors
"SO many wonderful backers, I think I may run out of space!

I'll never forget my biggest race to date and although it was in 2015, Blue Seventy was there to help then as they are now. I needed a suit as my previous brands had caused some issues and ahead of me was Ultraman Canada, with a 10K swim. Blue Seventy stepped up to the plate and overnighted me a sleeveless suit that is now my favorite one for all races! Amazing customer service and products.

PhD nutrition has been my sole source of hydration and nutrition during back to back Ironmans, ultramans, century road rides and everything in between. Solid products, great service and a huge factor in my abilities.

Reynolds Wheels... you almost don't need an introduction. They speak for themselves... fast, dependable and again, wonderful service. I've tried many brands on the market and I LOVE how these perform!

Ruby's lube... you guys ROCK. Thousands of miles in the saddle and zero complaints from "down below." Riding in comfort is a huge deal and I know I couldn't hammer out the miles without your product on board.

Cobb Cycling... between you and Ruby's Lube, it's a match made in heaven. My four steeds rock Cobb Saddles and I can't imagine riding anything else. I'm a customer for life.

Ashworth Awards. I'm always excited to see what you guys are coming up with next! Constantly impressed by your designs and it makes each race even more memorable. Keep up the fantastic work!

Normatec... oh how I love seeing the booth at expos! Yes, I will visit sometimes three times as I prep for a big day and envy my teammates that own a set. Maybe I'll be an owner soon but in the meantime, I'll just sincerely appreciate the sessions.

Finis, you make some wonderful products that I enjoy using in the pool. Very creative, plenty of options and all designed to improve technique and speed. I'm a slow swimmer, but you guys have directly helped my efficiency.

Bonk Breaker. You're with me at every IM, hands down. Thanks for keeping me going and producing top-notch products.

Chilis. Let's just say that when I see one, I go. Excellent company, excellent food and a mission that is awesome. Lets Tri Together!

I know I'm missing some and to all the rest, thank you for helping us become one of the most respected, hardest working and amazing team on the planet! YOU are what drives us and allows us to reach our goals!"

Ben Miller

Chili's
"I have to admit I quit going to Chili's many years ago. We had a team dinner there last year and I was completely blown away. Great atmosphere, family friendly and a huge list of favorite meals plus actual meals for athletes that are required to fuel properly. It has become a staple for my family and we are so happy to have a new go-to place with healthy options!"

Aaron Raymond Marjala

"As a second year BSR team member I have had the oppratunity to race 5 Ironman races under the BSR flag. Being part of BSR brings along a true committed team of people spread out across the world. I have made lifelong friendships through BSR and everywhere I travel my team is there when I need them the most. It has been an honor to be a member of BSR and cherish the friendships I have made.

That being said, without a doubt, our sponsors ROCK! I believe I am the record holder for beet juice (Beet Perfomer) consumption during training as well as on race morning. Newton running took me from being sidelined with sciatica to Bostan qualifying. Ruby's is my go to lube and even learned if you out a dab on your eyebrows, the sweat from your helmet will roll off your face and not onto your glasses! Chili's came onboard this year and all I can say is "WoW, crazy BSR support. With their healthy athletic supported new menu items we book a table the night before every race. Sponsor or not, if 25 triathletes are going to dine at a restaurant 12 hours before a 140.6 mile race, that is a true testament to quality and belief in a company.

Those are just a few examples of how our sponsored companies are improving the sport of Triathlon.

Cheers, and I'll see you out on the course! "

Professional Triathlete
"FINIS simplifies swimming training for all athletes, but especially for triathletes. As an athlete who only learned to swim at 24 years of age, swimming requires a lot of attention for me and FINIS simplifies things and keeps me on top of my game. "
