I would like to thank everyone who has contributed and who continues to help me in my dedication to the sport of triathlon. In triathlons, and most sports, it is impossible to be the best without help. I would like to thank my family for their unwavering support. I am very lucky to have their love.
Below are some companies that are helping me follow my dreams as well. Each of these companies has my personal endorsement for their products. If you’re interested in anything from these companies please use the contact form on this website and I can help you find the perfect product for what you’re looking for.
Hincapie Sports - Hincapie makes custom athletic apparel, as well as a full line of retail apparel. I turned to Hincapie in 2012 because I wanted a unique look, and I wanted that look to be on the best apparel available.
Garmin International – Garmin makes the most innovative GPS products available to consumers. With a full line of Ant+ enabled Forerunner and Edge computers there’s a GPS device for every cyclist, runner and triathlete. The Forerunner 310xt is the best all around training device. It works with Ant+ wireless power meters for cyclists, records your cadence and pace during run workouts, and can even measure distances for open water swims. For those who like simplicity there’s the Forerunner 110 and 210, which record all the data without the extra bells and whistles of the 410 and 610. And for cyclists who want everything the Edge 800, with its touch screen and color maps, is the most advanced cycling computer ever made.
Blue Seventy Wetsuits – Blue Seventy has been a sponsor since I first started racing triathlons in 2007. This Seattle based company makes an excellent wetsuit. As a former Division I NCAA swimmer I am very particular about how a suit fits me. The arms need to be loose enough for my stroke to feel natural, and there can’t be any water sloshing around inside the suit. I’m far too picky to compromise and Blue Seventy wetsuits are the only suits I’ll wear.
Cervelo – When I decided I wanted to be a triathlete I got a job at a triathlon store so I could learn everything I could about the sport. I worked as a mechanic building bikes and quickly fell in love with the Cervelo frames. I loved building up a new P3 or a Soloist, and when the P3 Carbon came out I dreamed of having one of my own. It took over six years, but I finally have my own Soloist (the S5) and a P5. These are the fastest bikes on the market, and I’m thrilled every time I get to swing my leg over the saddle.
Full Speed Ahead / Vision Tech – FSA and Vision make everything on the bike except the frame. Their new line of bar-end shifters is the first innovation in mechanical shifting levers since the STI lever 20 years ago. If you have a bike, you probably own an FSA product. They make parts for your kids first bike, all the way up to professional grade gear, and they do it all with the quality you would expect from a Seattle based company.
Rudy Project – The best sunglasses for athletes. The ImpactX lens technology is rated for ballistics, and is guaranteed to hold up to the kind of beating it gets from me. If not they’re replace the damaged lenses for free. Rudy Project also makes the fast and comfortable helmets. Their aero helmets are easy to get on, so you get free time through T1. All their products are light weight and designed for performance.
Racermate - my CompuTrainer is the most effective training tool available. With watt based training indoors, computer programmed courses and workouts, and the ability to virtually race anyone in the world, the winter training options are endless. Training on the CompuTrainer is so effective I do a sizeable number of workouts on it year round. It is the key behind my cycling success.
