"Until I found the Element by Blueseventy I hunted for months trying to find a comfortable but fast goggle that can be used in the pool or the open water. I spent more than double that the element cost but got nowhere near the performance, consistency and comfort. "

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!!"

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. "

Aaron Gray

BSR Team
"Not enough can be said about how great BSR is. The constant motivation and support from the team pushed me to qualify and take a pro card in 2016. Further, the breadth and depth of sponsorship from BSR partners is unrivaled. From bikes, to shoes, to components and all the gear inbetween, Big Sexy has the best companies on board. Through BSR I have met what I hope we'll become lifelong friends. If you want the best industry, comradery, and results in the world of triathlon, chooses BSR."

Ben Hoff

OGIO
"After joining Big Sexy Racing I bought my first Ogio bag, the Endurance 9.0 to use as my transition bag. It was perfect, well thought out and super durable. I have been using (and abusing it) for 3 years now and it looks and functions just like it was new. I can also now proudly say all of my traveling luggage has been replaced by Ogio bags and my wife's camera backpack is now an Ogio as well. Just a great, solid company, with awesome customer service in the rare case you need it!"

Blue Seventy Wetsuits
"Love my Blue Seventy! Have both the Helix and the PS4 swim skin. Best out there by far and I've tried LOTS of different brands before. "

Matthew Parra

Team BSR Sponsors
"Words aren't enough. PHd Nutrition keeps me fueled. Since having weight loss surgery 5 years ago, I am not able to tolerate many of the nutritional products on the market. Since I was turned to PHd by my BSR Coach Karleen, I have not had the nutritional issues experienced in the past. The Glycodurance is the bomb!

Ruby's Lube has been a life saver from me to prevent chafing in all sorts of places from thighs, to chest to my feet on the runs.

And what is there to say that hasn't been said already for Big Sexy Racing. The team name is really misleading. This is much more than just a triathlon racing team. BSR is a family. A family with all of the encouragement and support that family member give one another all through life. A family that also pokes fun at one another and has a good time. I have been sidelined most of this year due to injuries and medical conditions, but my BSR team mates continue to support and encourage me for my comeback in 2017.

Thanks to Chris and Erika for all you have done to put this special group of people and coaches together."

Jodi Newman

Big sexy sponsors
"So far every sponsor has been amazing. Great discounts for us, and great codes to share with friends and family members. They take care of us as team members and support the team like nothing I have ever encountered before.
They go out of their way to get us products and supplements when we need them for races!!
All in all I am thrilled to be on this team and have the opportunity to promote such great companies!
Hoping we can continue a relationship with them in 2017!! "

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."

Normatec Recovery Boots
"Normatec recovery boots are a game changer. Many triathletes neglect recovery, always concentrating on swimming, biking and running. Recovery is key and the Normatec boots use their patented technology to facilitate blood flow in your legs and does make your legs fresher faster. I use them every night as part of my recovery routine. Thank you Normatec for sponsoring Big Sexy Racing. "
