Tell us a bit about your background?
Past 8 years, I have been getting into Triathlon. Some Championships or on podium were major accomplishments. Also I race GranFondo NY every year.
Why did you sign up for IncaDivide ?
I just moved to California from NY and has not started work. One day I saw my friend (Alex Wall, he signed up) posted Facebook about this race. I found myself this must be best timing and may be last chance to do this.
What bike/equipment are you planning to use ?
Cervelo R3 + DuraAce carbon 1380.
You are an accomplished long distance triathlete. Could you tell us more about how you are planning to train for IncaDivide and your triathlon season at the same time?
Until IncaDivide, I mostly focus biking. Regular biking will be neighborhood (Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) which is called ‘Donut’. One loop is about 30mile with 2600ft total elevation. Twice 2 or 3 loops per week. After snow has gone, will go mountains in South California. For high altitude training, I am still thinking. Maybe mountain in North California or Leadville in Colorado.
Triathlon is only Ironman Los Cabos in mid November. I may forget how to swim at the time I finished IncaDivide.
