Our friend James gave us a heads-up last week about Specialized’s awesome podcasts.  If you really want to get into the inner workings of the company – and find out what makes their bikes so damn good – you need to take a few minutes to listen to some of this stuff.  It’s fascinating.

You can either download the podcasts directly as mp3 files or subscribe to them through iTunes, and then listen to them whenever you want – on your way to work, during an indoor ride on your trainer, on the can, while you cook, or… right now.  Click here to find out more.

Oh, and Happy New Year!!!!

Hi everyone!

We just wanted to give you a heads-up about the list of links we are adding to Carolina Triathlon’s website:

1. When you access the home page now, you will find two blocks at the top of the page. One is a link to group runs and the other is a link to group rides. Click he one you want (based on… what type of group workout you are interested in), and you will be redirected to a page with allof the relevant information, schedules and links.

2. The left-hand margin now has a series of links that will direct you to a number of resources, from local cycling and triathlon coaches, to athletes’ personal websites, etc. We will start adding links to local races, massage therapists and other cool resources in the coming weeks.

3. Our main page now also features two graphics displaying current weather conditions. The graphics are hyperlinked to and, so you can a detailed day-by-day or hour-by-hour analysis of upcoming weather. (Great if you’re wondering what to wear on your next outdoor workout.)

The idea is to give you guys immediate access to information you will be able to put to good use, without making you jump through hoops. Our goal is to make the Carolina Triathlon your online and offline hub for local racing, taining and other swimming, cycling, running and triathlon-related thingamajigs.

Check it all out here.

It’s that time again: ROBOCOP SMOOTHIE (our very own house band) is playing Connolly’s Irish Pub (Downtown Greenville) again this Friday at 10:00pm, so swing by and enjoy what is sure to be another awesome show.

Also, you might want to get an early start with a free membership to a new great website specifically designed for athletes like us (triathletes, cyclists, mountain bikers, etc.).  The site’s focus is to provide athletes with a place to find training partners, post photos and videos of themselves, discuss their favorite sport, find coaches, show off, and even find sponsors.

The site is currently in its Beta phase (in development), but its soft launch has already attracted about 150 athletes just from word-of-mouth alone, and is sure to drawn in thousands by this summer.  (Wait ’till you see this thing once it isn’t in Beta anymore!)  It’s going to be huge.

For those of you keeping score, the site was dreamed up by Graham Fizer (one of the cooler Clemson grads I’ve met so far), and is being developed by the brilliant folks at Orange Coat, which is probably the best website design studio on the East coast… of the Galaxy.

Go check it out, create a profile (it takes just seconds), and start seeing out who’s there already.  I don’t mean to seem preachy or whatever, but you really need to join and help us start an online cycling and triathlon community for SC.  (It may not seem important now, but it’ll come in handy this spring.  Just you wait.)

Here’s what you do:

  1. Clear your schedulefor the next couple of minutes.
  2. Go to and sign up.

Thanks in advance, and if we don’t see you at the store in the next two days, we’ll see you at Connolly’s Friday… or at any of the rides this weekend.
