His childhood dream was always to play quarterback in the NFL, but after a very bad ankle injury his football career was over.

Richard believes that with dedication, consistency and the right coaching plan anything is possible in triathlon.

Laurent Painchaud

Athlete
"In full transparency, BSR is both my client and my coach. That being said, there is no denying the results. Chris McDonald and the team at Big Sexy Racing are transforming this 40+ husband, dad and entrepreneur into a real contender. I gave the mandate to Chris that I want to get to Kona and I'm fully confident that he's going to deliver. We don't get caught up in all of the minutiae of the data, but I know that it's all there embedded in my plan. The BSRX prescription is clear, adaptive and fits my busy schedule like a glove. The work is hard, trust me, but the rewards are worth every drop of blood, sweat and tears! "

Brett Hill

Athlete
"When I began I was a middle of the pack athlete, with an IM best of just over 11 hours and a HIM best of 5:08. Over the previous two years we’ve worked together and had a lot of fun, but also had some great results. I’ve been able to take my IM time to under 9 hours and record a HIM PB of 4:15 on a hilly course!"
