Martin Reynolds – Tri Director
Good luck to those competing in races this Sunday. For the fast guys we have the lung busting Metasprint Triathlon and for those who like it hot we have the Putrajaya 70.3 Half Ironman over in Malaysia. Look forward to seeing the photos and post race reports!
App of the week – Ride+
The e-version of the very popular Ride+ bracelet. Ride ID is an ICE (in case of emergency) app for cyclists. It affords peace of mind, by allowing cyclists to conveniently and securely display their emergency contact details and medical information on their device’s lock screen. In the event of an accident, this vital information can be accessed immediately by paramedics, critically saving time and potentially saving lives. Sign up now – its free! Thanks to Duncan Howard for sending this in.
Thanyapura Triathlon Super Camp – August 23-30th, 2014
Exciting news for ANZA members – Thanyapura in Phuket, Thailand are hosting a “Triathlon Super Camp” later this year and this is open to ANZA members at a discount.
This camp is the perfect foundation training block for those looking to peak for their A race in September thru December (Kona, Metaman, Langkawi, Challenge Phuket etc). This is a unique opportunity to train alongside some of the best professionals in the world (Caroline Steffan, Ronnie Schildknecht, Belinda Granger, Chris McCormack and many more) who will be there doing their own training, many of them for the World Championships in Kona. This is a ‘done-for-you’ camp, just bring your bike, goggles and running shoes and be prepared to put in some quality miles over the 10 days while meeting some amazing new friends who happen to share your same passion and love for this sport.
Every day will be meticulously planned out and run by the coaching team led by the legendary Jurgen Zach. Groups will be divided into 3, based on ability, so there’s room here for everyone to perform at the best of their ability. In addition to the Swim bike and run sessions, there are also further inclusive sessions such as: Sports massage, Motivational evening with Macca/Jürgen Zack, Video analysis, Swim + Run technique analysis, Ice baths, Mind Training Sessions. Round Trip Airport Transfer, Thanyapura Triathlon kit. Food & accommodation at Thanyapura is included. I train there a fair bit and the setup there is world class

Normal Cost is 45,000 THB for own room (around $1,400 USD) and 1,100 USD for twin share. Airfare to Phuket is also very reasonable.
