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!!"

"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!"

"I cannot say enough about the BSR sponsors for 2016. I came into this season with personal goals and I feel that those goals were supported fully by our sponsors. Throughout the season, I feel like all have contributed to our success as a team. I cannot say enough about the folks at Quintana Roo and Reynolds Cycling, who have been key to my performance this year. Their products are amazing and work perfectly together. Just recently I was able to purchase PowerTap P1 pedals, after having been a Quarq rider for years. I can honestly say I would never go back! And last, but not least, Normatec Recovery. I go everywhere with my Normatec Pulse Leg & Hip Recovery System. Their product is a game changer in recovery and the addition of the hip and glute extensions have really helped me in recovering after the long runs and rides during Ironman training."

"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!"
