PHD Nutrition
"I cant say enough good things about PHD Nutrition. I had been struggling on like bike rides and now that I have tried PHD, I won't use anything else. Thanks for a great product"

Terrance Ramirez

Newton
"I've been wearing Newton running shoes and I love them. The Newton Distance Elites are great for speed work and racing. Light and responsive, they'll make you feel like you're flying because you are."

Blue Seventy
"I've been wearing the hydra-vision goggles for open water swimming and racing and I love them. The field of view is great. They cut down on the sun glare and make sighting easy."

Jason Reinhardt

Big Sexy Racing & Sponsors
"Team/Family. It is really hard to not consider them one in the same with Big Sexy Racing.

The sponsors of above and beyond and make everyone feel like a pro athlete. Ph D. Nutrition took the time to help formulate nutrition for training and racing that I could not find with any other product line.

QR Bikes - They take care of everything for you to be race ready on their bikes. They are fast to respond with any questions.

Newton -
I could not imagine running on any other shoe. The Distance series is perfect for training and racing. Newton customer service is 2nd to none.

Aaron Gray

Normatec
"I can't imagine racing without my Normatec boots. They are put to use at least 5 days a week and they make my legs feel like a did half the workout I actually did. I've been apart from them for a few weeks and am going through withdrawals, waking up with very sore legs. I get them back in a few weeks and am ready to charge back into training. Definitely a case of don't knock it 'till you try it."

David Szczepanski

Normatec
"Used these recovery boots at an IM expo then fell in love with them. I was fortunate enough to be selected for this team and have Normatec as a sponsor. Use them almost daily and fell great the next day!"

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."

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! "

Terry Wilson

All Sponsors
"Prior to becoming a member, I always used the products such as Chili's, K2 Coolers, and Ruby's Lube. Now I promote them even more. The products are something to believe in. I have two sets of Reynolds wheels. K2 Coolers is a small company that has a product to believe in. Precision Bikes has Mark Miller which is just a great person and professional bike fitter. He doesn't sell bikes, he sells happiness on the bike. Normatec Boots make my recovery game so much sharper in contrast to when I don't use them. I use my Finis swim gear every single time when I hit the pool. I mean after all they are the number one swim gear manufacturer. I have a Cobb Fifty-Five saddle, I never knew what it was like to truly enjoy riding on a bike until I got that saddle. It doesn't hurt, it doesn't make me sore or anything. Ruby's Lube is the only anti-chafe cream on the market that you do not have to reapply after hours of use and get this, you can actually pronounce everything in it. I support all of these sponsors weekly through social media posts. I look forward to many years ahead with this team. I feel like the sponsors believe in the athletes just as much as the athletes believe in their products. I know I have been lifted to a new level while using all of the sponsored products. After all, we are all chasing after that Medal by Ashworth Awards! "

PHD Nutrition
"After 24yrs in the sport and having tried almost every nutrition product available. I can honestly say PHD Nutrition products are spot on, as far as taste and effectiveness. "
