Ice Friction Technology
"I could tell immediately that I was riding smoother and easier with Ice Friction Technology. The quiet and the "flying-like-feel" enhanced my overall cycling experience on the hot lava fields of Kona. As an older athlete, I'm embracing all advantages, and this did not disappoint. Their product and service were fantastic! "

Jimmy Lockie

NormaTec
"There really are no words that can describe how amazing this product is.!! 1st off the company itself is fantastic. Always willing to answer any of my questions, no matter how silly they may be. The product is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I use them every night, travel with them and cannot live without them. I don't care how many looks i get in an airport. This product has saved me so much money on having to get a massage every two weeks during the season. Thank you so much. "

Big Sexy Racing Sponsors
"Big Sexy Racing and our sponsors are unmatched. This is my second year on the team and while I used some of our sponsors products previously, I've fully committed to using the full complement of sponsors products to support my training and racing. I set an IM run PR this year in my Newton's, recover faster and better with PHD Nutrition and Normatec, bike faster and stronger with Precision Bikes, Cobb Cycling, ICE Friction and Reynolds Cycling, continue to get faster in the water with Finis and Blue Seventy, fuel with Bonk Breaker and PHD Nutrition, travel with OGIO, Zeal protects my eyes and Ruby's Lube keeps me from chafing. I am so thankful to our sponsors and what their products have allowed me to accomplish as an age group athlete. "

Paul Morrison

Big Sexy Racing/Sponsors
"2016 has been my first season as part of the Big Sexy team/family, and all I can say is that it has been an amazing experience, far exceeding my expectations. Even though I have not personally met many members of this team, I consider them friends and I am proud to toe the line with each and every one of them. Led by Chris McDonald, the Big Sexy himself, who provides us with great expertise and leads by his wonderful example of what it means to give everything to both your racing and your family. Erika is the glue that holds everything together, and I don't think you could find a kinder, more patient human being on the planet!

I have been working with BSRx3 Coaching this season, and have been very pleased with the results thus far! I finally have more structure to my training and the coaches are always happy to dole out advice and personalize the plan to fit my schedule and goals. I'm very excited to see what next season holds after I've had a full year of working under their tutelage!

The support we get from our sponsors is 2nd to none, and it's honestly not even close. Not a single one of us would openly support a product that we wouldn't use ourselves, and that just isn't an issue with the sponsors we have! The products they put out are amazing, and the customer service they provide is the best in the business! Newton Running, Blue Seventy, Ruby's Lube, PhD Nutrition, Chili's, Beet Performer, ICE Friction, Power Tap, K2 Coolers, Ogio, KASK helmets, NormaTec Recovery, Finis, Ashworth Awards, Bonk Breaker, Reynolds… and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few, which I apologize for, but the list goes on and they are all amazing! Using their products this year, combined with the level of customer support they have provided when choosing which products to use and how to best use them, has made me a customer for life! Thank you to Big Sexy Racing and all our sponsors for making 2016 my best season yet, and I am confident that 2017 will be even better!!"

Bonk breaker
"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.

Rubys lube
"Prior to being associated with big sexy racing. I used a well known chamois cream. It worked, but during long events it had to be reapplied. I began using Ruby's all natural ant chafe balm. What a difference, it last all day with one application, provides better protection with less volume of product. Plus it's all natural with only 5 ingredients and has a good natural smell, not a chemical or artificial. I have also been using it where my wetsuit rubs and when riding or running without socks. It's a great product with many uses. Check out the story of Ruby and her unbelievable anti chafe lube, you won't be disappointed. "

Keith O'Connell

Normatec
"Purchased the pulse system after a tough Ironman Vineman. My recovery has been significantly faster than previous ironmans. Hardest part of training for me is recovery and with my Normatec I can recover way faster. Only problem in my house if who gets to use the them first! "

Christopher Fischer

Newton Running
"I didnt run in Newtons until I joined BSR. Upon obtaining my first pair of Distance 2's my whole Idea of running changed. It went from the third and boring part of the race to my favorite event. Newton shoes have made running fun again because they are comfortable and long lasting. I can get easily 250+ miles out of each shoe. Newton running creates a strong stable, breathable product. "

Tom Lucas

Bonk Breaker and PhD
"Before being involved with Big Sexy Racing, I thought it was normal to just be tired and hungry during my races, hey I'm just buying more energy than I'm taking in, that part of racing. After advice from teammates here I began using both bonk breaker and PhD products. I was amazed on the difference when you use products that actually work. With the help from the customer service department at PhD I was able to dial in a nutrition plan for training and racing that keeps me fueled and provided the energy needed. These two products made a huge difference this year."
