Press Release - Ask A Pro

Presented By: Tri-GuyJ.Blogspot.Com

I am very pleased and excited to announce a new feature on Adventures of a Tri-Guy. I have been fortunate enough for the past 9 months to have the opportunity to swim and train with two of the top Xterra triathletes in the world. These two amazing athletes are willing to share their knowledge and let all of you ask the questions.

Candy Angle and Andrew Noble have been mainstays on the world Xterra scene since the turn of the millennium. Candy was the 2002 Xterra World Champion and has victories around the world, including a win at Xterra Brazil, countless podiums and finishing the season off with an impressive 5th at the Xterra World Championships in Maui.

Andrew Noble was the 1996 Duathlon World Champion, racing for Australia. Andy ranked 5th in the 2007 Overall US Pro-Series after finishing 3rd overall in 2006. In 2007, Andy placed 2nd at Xterra Alabama and took 3rd place at both Xterra Temecula and at the Xterra USA Championships.

Candy and Andy have teamed up to form CAAN Sports . They run swim clinics over the winter at the Weymouth Club in Weymouth, MA and running clinics year round. These are open to anyone interested, so please go to to find out more information. Both of these athletes are sponsored by: Fuji Bicycles, Speedo, Powerbar, Sram, Aquaman Wetsuits, Saucony and Oakley.

Their scheduled blog appearances have yet to be finalized, but this is an open forum for all of you to "Ask A Pro" a question. Please email me at anytime and I will work with Candy and Andy to answer as many questions as we can. Whether it be about training, race-day strategy, nutrition, or anything else you can think of, this is the place ask.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing YOUR questions and the PRO'S answers!

Retraction on the T-shirts

Oops. Turns out Di has been talking with some of the other Sherpas about t-shirt ideas, and I stomped all over that with my last post. Sorry Di, and others working on the idea! Please continue to march on the supporter's gear, and keep in mind that T-shirt guy Jay has offered his help with them as well.

CdA Kit

Well, we gots 28 weeks until the incredible gathering of athletes and sherpas at IMCdA'08. Bloggers alone, we have at least 22 racers, and at least 13 Bloggy sherpas; add to that family and friends who are not Bloggers, and we got ourselves one heck of a TEAM (a hearty welcome to Taconite Boy, who just went from "supporter" to "racer")!

TriGreyhound came up with an idea - a CdA Blogger Kit - and thought we should solicit ideas and opinions from the group. Great Idea.

Q1: Should we put together a Kit (shirts, shorts, t-shirts or sweaters for supporters...)?

Q2: Should we go with the Tri-Geek Dreams logo or a special version of it, or come up with a new logo/slogan?

Q3: Can we get some ideas for alternate designs - does someone have the skills in the group, or should we solicit Mr. IronWil or AJ for help?

Q4: Any ideas on where to buy?

As this idea is in it's INFANCY, please please please input your ideas and comments!

For example, it may be cool to have the KIT back to folks early enough to allow for further customizing for the individual racer.

I'm excited by this idea. I feel an allegiance to the folks in this community and a bond that will only get stronger in the coming 28 weeks as only sweat, pain and tears can do. But I also know that folks can get pretty particular about what they race in....
