Like a lot of good things, Ruby’s Lube began as a simple conversation among friends. Tracy Gibson and a group of her best were discussing the fact that no one seemed to be able to make a simple and effective, natural balm for a variety of dry skin conditions. It was clear something had to be done – and soon after, Tracy was fast at work growing calendula in the back yard of her Sandpoint, Idaho, home: drying it, soaking it in olive oil, adding a few other natural ingredients and putting it in jars for gifts. The balm was an instant favorite. Friends and neighbors wanted to buy it; business acquaintances wanted samples. The buzz grew, word traveled, and an exciting adventure began. Ruby’s Lube was launched.

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! "

"Prior to using Rubys lube I was plagued with blisters, chafing, even saddle sores. I now use Rubys for every ride, run, and open water swim and have zero issues! It washes out of clothing and doesn't stain performance fabric! It also smells amazing! "

Tom Lucas

Rubys lube
"Prior to being associated with big sexy racing. I used a well known chamois cream. It worked, but during long events it had to be reapplied. I began using Ruby's all natural ant chafe balm. What a difference, it last all day with one application, provides better protection with less volume of product. Plus it's all natural with only 5 ingredients and has a good natural smell, not a chemical or artificial. I have also been using it where my wetsuit rubs and when riding or running without socks. It's a great product with many uses. Check out the story of Ruby and her unbelievable anti chafe lube, you won't be disappointed. "

"Being part of this team has been an amazing experience. The leadership, sponsors and team have truly enriched the pursuit of my athletic dreams. Just this year I bought my first Powertap power meter, a Reynolds Element disc, PhD Nutrition, Newton running shoes , Rubys Lube , Magura Direct for new tires and tubes, Beet Performer, Bonk Breaker and Finis axis pull buoy! I check out our sponsors FIRST. I believe the have helped me increase both my enjoyment and performance in triathlon. Go BSR!!!"

"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."

"I am now in my 3rd year racing with Big Sexy Racing and I can not say enough about the team and the amazing sponsors. It is a constant source of inspiration and motivation. Using products from BlueSeventy, Cobb, Reynolds, Ruby's Lube, Finis just to name a few keep me at my best. The BigSexyGear is the most comfortable I have ever worn. Amazing all!"

Christopher Whelchel

"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!"

"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! "

"BSR has been an amazing experience! Not only do I feel like a pro, I'm treated like one every where I go! This team is so well known and its accomplishments.

I've improved tremendously with Karleen Dirmantas as my coach. She knows more about coaching than I've ever experienced. I'm becoming the triathlete I've always wanted to be and will get there in time following her lead. She understands the science behind the body's ability and how to and when to push it to its limits plus when and how to pull it back for recovery. Just when I think I understand what she's doing she throws a curve that happily boggles my mind and I see how strong I've become. I smile more now with training because I trust her 100%. If you follow Big Sexy Racing Coaches you will SUCCEED!!

The sponsors have been over the top! PHD has saved me from getting depleted of what I need to perform and a sick stomach. I've been a regular at Chilis using all my reward points to provide me with yummy dinners. Fuel Belt keeps me hydrated, Rudy Project sports me with a mean machine aero helmet while Rubys Lube keeps the chafing at a 0. I'm swimming a smooth swim with Blue Seventy speed suit and their Tri bag is the one and only way to travel to swim practice with all my equipment finally not jammed. Ogio rocks my race Tri bag and travel in style! Sponsors spoil us !!

Chris and Erika run a professional style team and keep amazing me at how much they spoil us! I can't see my racing days ever without Big Sexy Racing! As long as I can race, I want to race BSR and BSRX3 style!!"

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! "

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!!!"

"Without a doubt, BSR has the best sponsors an athlete could ever ask for. Every sponsor that I have worked with has had unbelievable customer service and outstanding products. PhD Nutrition has filled the missing link in my race plans by providing amazing products AND incredible advice and support. Cobb Cycling along with Ruby's Lube keeps my most important "parts" comfortable and happy and I will never ride another saddle or slather another cream. Powertap allows me to make huge gains in my cycling and Normatec Recovery boots are the best thing since sliced bread! Everyone comments about how awesome my Ogio bags are and I can't stop eating at Chili's. Thank you Reynolds for sexy wheels and Ashworth Awards for awesome bling. Love this team and ALL of it's sponsors. THANK YOU!!!"

"I have used many chamois creams over the years but I've never been happier than when using Ruby's Lube. I have always put Chamois cream on before my swim in every race but they never seemed to last beyond T1. Ruby's doesn't have that problem"
