    The new Champion System cycling collection is more than about releasing new cutting edge product. This collection represents a total change in the way we present our cycling range based on feedback from our loyal customers.

     

    Over the years, Champion System had developed a huge range of products that serviced pretty much every style of rider you could expect, but that brought some confusion to some of you, because we have so many options for you to choose from – we had too much of a good thing. So, for the latest release we placed our focus on condensing all of those options into just a few styles that still covered the vast range of customers we have, but making deciding what is the best option for you – much easier.

     

    We have introduced three broad categories – Apex, Performance and Tech. Each represents different levels of clothing, based on technical properties of the garments, function, style, cut and price range, enabling each of you to easily decide what range you are looking for based on your individual requirements. If you want some more information on these collections and what best suits you – click through here.

     

    Within each category we have then broken our cycling items into styles – Pro, Summer and Aero. Our Pro range is the all rounder, built for every ride. The Summer is our lightweight range, designed specifically for those hot summer rides. The Aero, limited to our Apex collection, is the ‘marginal gain’ jersey – tight and aero. Again this allows you to easily determine what style you will order based on the conditions you will be riding in. So now we have just 7 jersey options but most of the features from before are all included in these 7 styles.

     

    For me I keep the Apex kit for racing, I like the way it fits closer to the skin, just what you want on race day. Dependent on the weather I will either pick the Pro or Summer but I tend to go with the Summer option as I like the lightweight breathable panels. For training rides I generally stick to the Performance line. No matter the conditions for training or race I can choose one of the jerseys and bibs to fit.

     

    On top of creating a more succinct line of collections, we have totally regenerated the actual jerseys in the line, looking at current and future trends, adding options and value over the entire range whilst keeping pricing very competitive.

     

    We think you will enjoy the range for 2017. Look forward to seeing you on the road.

    Donna Rae-Szalinski has recently been named the Director Sportif (DS) for the Wiggle HIGH5 team after a very successful term at the helm of the Australian based HIGH5 Dream Team. The former professional cyclist who competed at races such as the Tour de France until her retirement from racing in 1992. Donna has since become arguably one of the leading drivers and best coaches in female cycling in this country. We caught up with Donna late last week to talk about her year so far with the HIGH5 Dream Team. 

    What has been the most encouraging aspect so far this year?
    There are 2 things that stand out so far this year. Firstly, the determination and dedication of the team to win a stage in Tour Down Under TDU (UCI level race). Secondly, having all 3 spots on the podium filled by High5 Dream Team riders in the final stage of Mersey Valley Tour. Tessa’s commitment to break away 60 km from the finish and hold on to win (uphill finish) and Lucy and Lisen (guest ride) nailing the other 2 spots. Amazing team work!
     
    Is it all about the numbers or does a bit of guts and determination shape the rider?
    Without question G & D is extremely important in determining the success of a rider. You can have 10 riders with the same physiology yet 1 or 2 will come out on top. Having internal drive and motivation, being gutsy, being resourceful and proactive are traits that define the top athletes. Physiology is very important but having the best physiology and not enough G & D often results in ‘excuses’ at crunch times.
     
    For girls in their first year what would be your top three tips?
    1) Every race is an opportunity to learn – watch races to learn tactics and compile an internal data bank about what happens in a race.
    2) Train smart – work with a qualified coach and plan your preparation. Have a vision of where you want to go and work towards it in a progressive manner.
    3) Be proactive in shaping your career – look for opportunities, discuss options with your coach, be the driver in your career. A good coach will put as much time into your career as you do – so give them reasons to work hard for you!
     
    How important is it to have the right kit for all seasons?
    Good kit is important on many fronts.
    - Function and Comfort – you spend alot of time in your kit and it needs to be of good quality and comfort. Kit that chaffs or causes discomfort is detrimental to performance – quality kit enhances performance and it vital to the extreme time demands of cycling.
    - Function and Aerodynamics – kit needs to fit well and have good characteristic for aerodynamics. An easy way to gain advantage (or become a liability!)
    - Identity – team kit allows you to identify your team and your sponsors every time you ride. It also reminds you of how lucky you are to have that support and how important it is that you represent them well. It also gives you a sense of belonging, of shared dreams and aspirations and support to achieve those dreams and aspirations.

    One last story about the team that makes you believe in the future of Women's Cycling?
    A young rider by the name of Madeleine Fasnacht visited us at the At Mersey Valley Tour in 2015. She was in a group of females who had not raced bikes before – they were partnered with teams and allowed to go in team cars to watch the racing. Madeleine was in our team car and she quickly was in the thick of the action. She loved it and it was a pleasure to have someone get so enthusiastic about the racing. One year later she decided to race the Mersey Valley Tour. Amazingly she finished top 10 out of the senior riders and she is a first year junior! With that result we invited her to be a guest rider on the team for us at Battle on the Border when we lost Ainslie and Sam to injury/illness. She placed 5th in the 1st stage – very impressive. She is now in contention for the junior worlds road team (which will be finalised in early July). Impressive young talent and one to watch! In 12 months she went from never racing a bike and sitting in the team car to being the real deal. Female cycling is strong and growing stronger and I am proud to be apart of that growth!

    Swim

    1. In order to increase your ability to sight in the Xterra swim leg practice sighting in the pool. Throw in a few sightings while swimming across the pool. Look up two to three times and try to keep a streamlined position by not dropping your hips and legs.

    2. Always bring with you two pair of goggles. A clear set and a dark set. I use the clear set of goggles for rainy or cloudy days and the dark set for glary & sunny days. Practice with both pairs of goggles during your pool sessions so you are equally comfortable with both pairs.

    3. Wetsuits are a great investment! Not only will it keep you warm, but more importantly it will provide buoyancy, helping to keep you on top of the water and making it easier to swim.

    4. If you can swim well you should position yourself front and center. If swimming is not your strong suit, then its best to seed yourself towards the back of the pack. Once the gun goes off, take your time getting into the water. There is no reason to battle the chaos. It's totally fine to swim 10-20 meters off to the side to avoid the washing machine mess. Don't stress about losing a few seconds because the more comfortable you feel in the water the better your swim will go anyway.

    5. If you have a chance to train in the open water or conditions similar to the Xterra race, take advantage of it. It is not always the “fastest” swimmers that exits the water first, but the one who swims the smartest race and has used the ocean conditions to his or her advantage.

     

    Bike

    1. Always follow the signs and route markers, and get to know the course well. Xterra Markers are BLUE for Bike & RED for Run!

    2. Stay in control. Watch your speed, slow down around tight corners, and don't try any tricks beyond your skill level.

    3. Yield the trail. When you get near another person, slow down. Let them know you're approaching and signal that you want to pass. A common signal is yelling “TRACK” or “passing on the left or right”

    4. Be prepared. Bring along a repair kit and extra supplies, so you don't get stuck out on the course and you can still manage to finish the race.

    5. Clean up. Any wrappers or empty gels you bring with you should go back home with you or be disposed properly.

     



    Run

 


    1. Road running is very different to off-road running. Most road runners are used to the same foot strike pattern and they don't realize that on the trail, you land differently each time due to the unstable terrain. Start slow and build into each off-road run.

    2. Most Xterra run courses have hills in them; this means you have to learn how to run hills. Uphill running, you need to exaggerate your arm swing, drive from your elbow’s, lean into the hill, and push off the ground with the balls of your feet to drive yourself up the hill as best you can.

    3. Add downhill off-road running to your training plan as well. What goes up must come down! Start with a short, fire trail gradual slope, with a 2-3% grade, and move on to steeper, rocker and longer descent, as you get more comfortable.

    4. To help me run on gnarly trails I try to take short, quick steps so you can react quickly to the every changing terrain. Road shoes are ok, but trail shoes have more grip and also help to protect your feet from rocks and roots.

    5. When running off-road try to look three or four feet ahead, which will allow your brain to capture a mental snapshot of your foot placement and continue to process the images based on that mental snapshot. Allowing you to run FAST!

    Reddog Triathlon Training completed a hugely successful weekend at the start of February when they ventured out west on their 7th annual trip to Goondiwindi to partake in the ominously named Hell of the West Triathlon.

    The event, inaugurated in 1990, is well known as one of Australia’s toughest triathlons. Competitors are subjected to a 2km swim in the murky, muddy water of the MacItyre River; a pancake flat, yet often brutally windy 80km ride; and a 20km run under the brutal Goondiwindi summer sun.

    This year the course lay out was slightly altered due to the heavy rain the region has been subjected to recently, with the swim moved from the swollen MacIntyre River into the no less daunting Goondiwindi Botanic Gardens lake, facilitating the run leg to be split into 3km and 17km sections.

    Reddog have made their presence keenly felt at the event in recent years, and succeeded in retaining the Neil Pagey Award for having the most team and individual entries for the 5th year in succession. Reddog provided 38 individual athletes and a further 7 teams who made the trip from Brisbane on three busses in what has become the highlight of the year for the majority of club members, and the quantity of athletes was more than matched by the quality of the performances.

    The numerous spectators who lined the run course were treated to a phenomenal battle in the women’s race, where the top three ladies – two of whom were Reddogs - were separated by just 41 seconds over a race lasting more than 4 hours.

    Reddog Briana Mackie was first out of the water and into the first run, but teammate Rosie McGeoch was chasing hard and flew around the bike leg - claiming the fastest female time of the day - to take the lead going into the final, 17km run. Both Reddogs knew the fast running Emily Donker was sure to be chasing them down, but they both pushed themselves to the limit to stay ahead. It wasn’t until the final lap that Briana finally overtook her gutsy teammate, and even then the result was far from certain, as they flew down the final straight.

    It was Briana who crossed the line first in a phenomenal time of 4:11:15, claiming the overall and 30-34 year age group titles to go with the State Long Course Title. McGeoch took solace in being first 35-39 female as she came home just 19 seconds in arrears. Emily Donker ran superbly to get to within touching distance of the two Reddog athletes, just 22 seconds further back in what was the battle of the day.

    It wasn’t just Briana and Rosie who took home State Age Group Titles from the weekend however. Sarah Menlove (F25-29) who finished in 4:22:48, and Belinda Ward (F40-44) who came home in 4:28:08 capped off a fantastic weekend for Reddogs ladies. Jennifer Veitch battled cramps on the run to claim a well-earned 3rd place in the F30-34 age-group with a time of 4:29:22, and Hannah Staunton rounded out the female place getters by claiming 3rd place in the F25-29 in 4:46:08.

    To complete the domination that the ladies showed, the Women’s Team - The Red Dog Sheilas (Felicity O’Neill, Mischa Hartley and Mel Lynagh) also won the women’s team prize with a time of 4:27:09.

    The Reddog men were also successful, Kieran Storch claiming a valiant 4th place in the Men’s Open category with a time of 3:41:50. Michael Lennon (M45-49) claimed 2nd in his age group, completing the course in 4:10:35, while Darrell Crimson (M45-49) and David Savoff (M20-24) both claimed 3rd place in their age groups, recording times of 4:15:14 and 4:15:41.

    The Reddog A Team (Simon Smale, Brett Pidgeon and James Dimsey) claimed first place in the team competition on the back of a blisteringly quick bike leg from Brett Pidgeon, finishing in 3:37:39.

    Extra special mention should also go to Reddog Athlete of the Month, Ned Mott. Ned completed the race in an outstanding 4:55:26, finishing 7th in his 20-24 age-group but more importantly, raced in memory of his close friend Tom Lyons. Tom competed in Hell of the West in 2014 but tragically died after crossing the finish line. Ned’s commitment to make a positive memory for his friend was hugely inspirational to everyone at the club.

    Reddog will surely return next year, looking to further build on their already impressive performances at Hell of the West.
