FINIS
"My FINIS hand paddles have transformed my swim stroke and cut several minutes from my race times. By promoting correct hand entry, catch and pull technique, they can help any swimmer slice through the water more efficiently. They are such an essential tool for my swim training, I won't travel without them!"

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."

"After years of claiming that I couldn't swim in a fullsleeve wetsuit, the flexible, durable Helix made me a believer. I also love blueseventy's entire line of comfy goggles and cute, fast practice swimsuits...I'm rushing to place another order as we speak! "

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!"

Bryan Lamb

Beet Performer
"As a kid, I grew up hating beets. I'm not even 100% positive if I ever even ate one or not, I just hated them.
Prior to joining the team, my wife turned me on to beets - which she used a juicer to make them. One huge problem is that this required time to actually prep the beets for juicing, time to actually juice them, and a ton of time to clean the juicer afterwards. HUGE HASSLE and it moved us away from drinking beet juice.
Enter Beet Performer. It made everything so easy - simply pop open a can and guzzle it down. Tastes great, is very reasonably priced (especially if you get the specials from their newsletter HINT HINT), and gives you all the benefits of using beets without any of the hassle. It's a win/win."

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!! "

"SO many wonderful backers, I think I may run out of space!

I'll never forget my biggest race to date and although it was in 2015, Blue Seventy was there to help then as they are now. I needed a suit as my previous brands had caused some issues and ahead of me was Ultraman Canada, with a 10K swim. Blue Seventy stepped up to the plate and overnighted me a sleeveless suit that is now my favorite one for all races! Amazing customer service and products.

PhD nutrition has been my sole source of hydration and nutrition during back to back Ironmans, ultramans, century road rides and everything in between. Solid products, great service and a huge factor in my abilities.

Reynolds Wheels... you almost don't need an introduction. They speak for themselves... fast, dependable and again, wonderful service. I've tried many brands on the market and I LOVE how these perform!

Ruby's lube... you guys ROCK. Thousands of miles in the saddle and zero complaints from "down below." Riding in comfort is a huge deal and I know I couldn't hammer out the miles without your product on board.

Cobb Cycling... between you and Ruby's Lube, it's a match made in heaven. My four steeds rock Cobb Saddles and I can't imagine riding anything else. I'm a customer for life.

Ashworth Awards. I'm always excited to see what you guys are coming up with next! Constantly impressed by your designs and it makes each race even more memorable. Keep up the fantastic work!

Normatec... oh how I love seeing the booth at expos! Yes, I will visit sometimes three times as I prep for a big day and envy my teammates that own a set. Maybe I'll be an owner soon but in the meantime, I'll just sincerely appreciate the sessions.

Finis, you make some wonderful products that I enjoy using in the pool. Very creative, plenty of options and all designed to improve technique and speed. I'm a slow swimmer, but you guys have directly helped my efficiency.

Bonk Breaker. You're with me at every IM, hands down. Thanks for keeping me going and producing top-notch products.

Chilis. Let's just say that when I see one, I go. Excellent company, excellent food and a mission that is awesome. Lets Tri Together!

I know I'm missing some and to all the rest, thank you for helping us become one of the most respected, hardest working and amazing team on the planet! YOU are what drives us and allows us to reach our goals!"

All the Team AND ALL sponsors
"This is my first year on Big Sexy Racing and it has been the absolute best experience I have had, and actually surpassed what I was thinking it would bring.

This team has been more than a team to me, it has become like another family of mine. From Chris and Erika being there and doing so much for all of us, to everyone on the team being so supportive and encouraging about every aspect of life from training, to racing and even to any other life item that may be going on.

On top of that we have some of the absolute best sponsors to help us achieve all of our goals as individuals and a team! These sponsors such as Chili's, PhD Nutrition, Reynolds Wheels, Power Tap, Ruby's Lube, Newton Running, Ashworth Awards, Epoch Universal, Ice Friction, Kask Helmets, Beet Performer, NormaTec and so many more have been there for myself and the entire team daily with information, support and GREAT products!!!! Without all of these sponsors and more (sorry for not getting each listed, all mean a ton), the goals and accomplishments of our team would be harder to reach each day and each race!!!!

Thank you all for the best race year I could have ever imagined, actually surpassing my original thoughts.

I look forward to continue to represent the team and ALL sponsors the best I possibly can!!!"

"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. "
