Bobbe Greenberg

Ruby's Lube
"I used Ruby's Lube all season, for every cycling session including four hour rides on an indoor trainer, and all century rides (7+ hours) leading up to my Ironman World Championship race. I am thrilled to say, I have remained non-irritated and chafe free! What I hadn't anticipated was an abrasion under my arm and on my neck after the 2.4 mile ocean salt- water swim. This had never happened in training, so I saw no need in applying any product in advance. Luckily, I had my Ruby's Lube! Not only does it smell delicious while soothing, my "wounds" disappeared over night! This multi-use product is also a wonderful lip balm. You'll love it! "

Andrea Hillman

Quintanaroo Bikes
"Being part of the BSR team has granted me so many neat opportunities, one of which was to be introduced to new products from our amazing sponsors. I have been on the market for a new bike for a few months before joining and then I learned that QR was a sponsor. I purchased a PRFive Ultegra Di2 Race and immediately fell in love with the bike. It is amazing how much a great bike makes a difference in your training and performance. The customer service I received from the folks at QR was incredible as well not only through the purchase process but even afterwards when I saw them at races. By far one of the BEST INVESTMENTS I have made in my triathlon career and I am SO SO happy with it. Proud to be part of this team and of our incredible sponsors. Love to all the QR team and thanks for all you do!"

Michael Benz

Sponsors
"PhD and Bonk Breakers have helped me conquer my GI issues. The best products I have tried and I have tried A LOT. QR bikes, Reynolds wheels, and Ice Friction go together like meatballs, gravy, and spaghetti. I can't imagine anything more smooth and fast between my legs. Not mention the best customer service from all three companies. After the bike, Newton's carry me to the finish. I will never run in another shoe again. After all the swimming, biking, and running Ruby's Lube keeps me from having to walk like I just got off of a horse. Finally, when I am cheering on the other BSR Teammates on their podium finishes I can look sexy in my Zeal Sunglasses. I have not had a bad experience with any of the sponsors and always look forward to working with them. "

Ed Rusk

BigSexyRacing
"I've had such a fun time on this team for the past 2 years. From the support of teammates to coaches that never think your question is stupid to the incredible sponsors. Reynolds Wheels are amazing! Beet Performer is my go to drink for recovery after a long workout as well as prepping me before a big race. PHD Nutrition has fueled me through many tough workouts when other fuel sources fell short. I'm thrilled with the help the Finis gear has had in improving my swimming, and the comfort in the swim suits. The team kits are the most comfortable kits I've ever had. Love this team!"

Keith O'Connell

Reynolds
"I ride the Reynolds Aero 72 and I can honestly say these wheels are the best race wheels I have ever used (and I have used a lot). I can hold my power with less effort and accelerate with ease. Plus these wheels have not needed any maintenance and I have tested it. I weigh 240 lbs and they are still as true as the day I go them. Just Awesome!"

Melinda Oldroyd

Big Sexy Racing
"This is my first year on the BSR team and it has been fantastic! The sponsors are all wonderful and take great care of us as athletes. Ranging from meals at Chilis, saddles from Cobb, data from PowerTap to the awesome bikes from Quintana Roo, they've treated me like a professional triathlete!

The team itself is made up of some of the best people around the world. We come from different ages, experiences and abilities; but we treat each other as family. Other then my local tri group, I've never felt so accepted, inspired or laughed so much. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful team!! "

Jodi Newman

Finis and blue seventy
"What amazing new products and technology these 2 offer us as athletes and as swimmers. I have the Finis Zoomers and LOVE them, plus the discount I got on them was such a bonus.
I won't swim any race venue without either my blue seventy speed suit or my Helix wetsuit. Both are superbly made and top notch technology. Blue seventy stands behind their products as well, if you have a problem with anything they are quick to help and make any repairs.
Both finis and blue seventy products are crutial to my training and racing needs!!
Thank you for being big sexy racing sponsors! "

"Great products. I use glyco durance Pharma greens battery vegan pure and whey protein and diet whey. All of the products are made with Grade A ingredients. The flavors also really tasty. "

Chris McDonald

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. "
