"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!!"
