Ice Friction Technology
"I could tell immediately that I was riding smoother and easier with Ice Friction Technology. The quiet and the "flying-like-feel" enhanced my overall cycling experience on the hot lava fields of Kona. As an older athlete, I'm embracing all advantages, and this did not disappoint. Their product and service were fantastic! "

Chili's
"Who doesn't love Chili's? With irresistible margaritas, it's always a party! Food is delicious with amazing healthy and nutritious options. That it's a fantastic value, makes this a great family option."

Bobbe Greenberg

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! "

Bobbe Greenberg

Cobb Cycling
"I LOVE my COBB! I've had a Cobb saddle for three years. During this time I've enjoyed week-long cycling trips, multi-hours on a stationery trainer, century rides, and Ironman races. While I wish I was faster, I can't complain about the distance, because I experience zero discomfort. In fact, my most recent bicycle split took me over seven hours, yet I never took my foot off the pedal This saddle truly makes riding a pleasure!"

Anna McCown

Karleen
"I have been working with Karleen since May and have nothing but positive things to say about her coaching. She makes great individualized plans and really works with you and your schedule.
She provides great feedback after a workout and helps keep you motivated to be the best you can be.
If looking for a coach, I would highly recommend Karleen!"

Jon Kolb

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"

Francis Asprodites

BSR Sponsors
"The sponsors of Big Sexy Racing have the most fantastic customer service. Beet Performer and PhD Nutrition keep my body filled with nutrients to be ready for race day. Finis googles and Blue Seventy swim skin get me through the swim. Bonk Breakers, Ice Friction, Power Tap, Kask and PhD Nutrition keep me hydrated, safe and ready to take on the run. Newton shoes keep some pep in my step for the run while keeping energy high with bonk breaker chews. All of this being done with Big Sexy Gear and Ruby's Lube to keep the body comfortable. Thanks to all the sponsors! They are amazing!"

Blueseventy
"Until I found the Element by Blueseventy I hunted for months trying to find a comfortable but fast goggle that can be used in the pool or the open water. I spent more than double that the element cost but got nowhere near the performance, consistency and comfort. "

"There really are no words that can describe how amazing this product is.!! 1st off the company itself is fantastic. Always willing to answer any of my questions, no matter how silly they may be. The product is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I use them every night, travel with them and cannot live without them. I don't care how many looks i get in an airport. This product has saved me so much money on having to get a massage every two weeks during the season. Thank you so much. "

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!"

Bobbe Greenberg

Newton
"I won a pair of Newtons and was reluctant to try them because I was running successfully (Boston, Kona) without any problems. Why switch? Still, my curiosity won out, and as a result, so did I. I've been a happy Newton convert for several years, and enthusiastically racing at 70 with a spring in my step! Thank you 5 lugs!"

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."

Terrance Ramirez

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."

Lisa Christensen

PHD Nutrition
"I have struggled to find the right race day nutrition for years. After spending sometime e-mailing with one of their representatives (this is so appreciated!) I figured out how to utilize liquid only nutrition for the bike portion of Ironman and it worked beautifully. Great products and even greater customer service!"

Tom Lang

Bonk Breaker and Beet Performer
"Bonk Breaker and Beet Performer are the winning combination. I have switched over to both before all long rides and pre races. Bonk Breaker and Beet Performer give me the base i need to have a solid race/ride."

Ed Shifflett

Newton Running
"I switched to Newton running shoes in 2013 and have never looked back. Comfort, speed, and an awesome look to top it off. I've worn several models over the years and have never had an issue. "

Jason Reinhardt

Newton
"The first thing that got me to notice newtons were the colors. After trying several out I finally found the perfect training and racing shoes for me. I LOVE the Distance Elites."

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.
"

Vicky Tiase

Cobb Cycling
"I've been racing for over 15 years and have struggled with finding the 'right' saddle. Once I was introduced to the v-flow, my high mileage work improved and my saddle sores diminished. It's great to work with sponsors that take the time to answer questions and support athletes to the fullest. Thanks to BSR for partnering with top notch products and sponsors!"

Ogio
"I take my Ogio luggage with me where ever I go. I travel a lot for work and my bag is filled to the max. It takes a beating but i never worry about the durability. Very reliable. Thank you Ogio"

Aaron Gray

BSR Team
"Not enough can be said about how great BSR is. The constant motivation and support from the team pushed me to qualify and take a pro card in 2016. Further, the breadth and depth of sponsorship from BSR partners is unrivaled. From bikes, to shoes, to components and all the gear inbetween, Big Sexy has the best companies on board. Through BSR I have met what I hope we'll become lifelong friends. If you want the best industry, comradery, and results in the world of triathlon, chooses BSR."

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."

Kris Cordova

blueseventy
"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! "

Keith O'Connell

Big Sexy Racing
"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!"

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!"

Laura Gilbert

PhD Nutrition
"PhD Nutrition has the best training and racing products! I had used several other nutrition companies before making the switch to My favorite products, Battery and Glycodurance, and none of them fueled me like PhD! The fast absorption and high quality is superior to any other product out there! And the staff is always helpful too!!"

Ryan Glover

BigSexyRacing Sponsors
"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."

Christine Desrochers

"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!!!"

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."

Greg Witherow

PowerTap
"Training with power has really taken my cycling to another level and I can always rely on my PowerTap pedals to give accurate feedback to dial in my training and racing! Easy to use and very durable - you can't go wrong with PowerTap!!!"

Keith O'Connell

Normatec
"Purchased the pulse system after a tough Ironman Vineman. My recovery has been significantly faster than previous ironmans. Hardest part of training for me is recovery and with my Normatec I can recover way faster. Only problem in my house if who gets to use the them first! "

Jeanie Crawford

Helix
"The range of motion I get with my blueseventy helix is amazing. The suit has been a true game changer for me, it's the best suit I've ever used! "

Jodi Newman

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!! "

Christopher Whelchel

Big Sexy Racing Sponsors
"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!"

Ben Miller

PHDNutritionCDN
"I am a bigger framed man and as such I require a lot of calories. for years and years I suffered nutrition difficulty in 70.3 and especially 140.6 distance races. it was always a balance of an empty tank or stomach lockup from too much. Glyco durance and battery have completely eliminated my issues. Easy to mix and I can put all my food needs in two simple bottles. No stomach issues any longer!!! Engineered with an endurance athlete in mind. "

Ben Miller

Chili's
"I have to admit I quit going to Chili's many years ago. We had a team dinner there last year and I was completely blown away. Great atmosphere, family friendly and a huge list of favorite meals plus actual meals for athletes that are required to fuel properly. It has become a staple for my family and we are so happy to have a new go-to place with healthy options!"

Christopher Fischer

Newton Running
"I didnt run in Newtons until I joined BSR. Upon obtaining my first pair of Distance 2's my whole Idea of running changed. It went from the third and boring part of the race to my favorite event. Newton shoes have made running fun again because they are comfortable and long lasting. I can get easily 250+ miles out of each shoe. Newton running creates a strong stable, breathable product. "

David Doughty

Newton
"I've been training and racing in my Newton Motion shoes for 4yr now and absolutely love them. They feel great. I really like the lugs and limited drop. It really helps foster good mid foot running technique which has kept me injury free."

Shauna Hall

Big Sexy Racing
"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!!"

Tom Lucas

Bonk Breaker and PhD
"Before being involved with Big Sexy Racing, I thought it was normal to just be tired and hungry during my races, hey I'm just buying more energy than I'm taking in, that part of racing. After advice from teammates here I began using both bonk breaker and PhD products. I was amazed on the difference when you use products that actually work. With the help from the customer service department at PhD I was able to dial in a nutrition plan for training and racing that keeps me fueled and provided the energy needed. These two products made a huge difference this year."

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! "

Scott Horns

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. "

Darren Smith

Rubys Lube
"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"
