Bobbe Greenberg

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! "

Bobbe Greenberg

Newton
"I won a pair of Newtons and was reluctant to try them because I was running successfully (Boston, Kona) without any problems. Why switch? Still, my curiosity won out, and as a result, so did I. I've been a happy Newton convert for several years, and enthusiastically racing at 70 with a spring in my step! Thank you 5 lugs!"

"The first thing that got me to notice newtons were the colors. After trying several out I finally found the perfect training and racing shoes for me. I LOVE the Distance Elites."

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!!"

Andrew Chafer

Ashworth Awards
"You put in the hard lonely miles of training alone or with BSR teammates to achieve your race day goals. These goals are celebrated with beautifully designed medals from Ashworth Awards that are placed around of necks and displayed for all to see. " I can't wait until my next race for my medal ""

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! "

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!! "

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."

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!"
