Cycling thrown into fresh turmoil with Tour doping investigation

Tue, September 22, 2020, 3:03 AM MDTPARIS (Reuters) - Cycling has been thrown into fresh turmoil after French judicial authorities opened a preliminary investigation into potential doping at Nairo Quintana's team Arkea-Samsic on Monday, a day after the Tour de France ended in Paris.

Two people had been taken into custody, Marseille prosecutor Dominique Laurens said, adding that the probe was targeting a "small part of the team" and that those in custody were part of the "close entourage of the main rider", without naming him. Arkea-Samsic's leader on the Tour was Colombian Quintana, twice a runner-up and also a Vuelta and Giro d'Italia champion. He finished 17th overall on this year's Tour. The French team confirmed that their hotel in Meribel was searched by the OCLAESP, the Central Office for the Fight against Environmental and Public Health Damage, after last Wednesday's 17th stage. Laurens said the search had resulted in the "discovery of many health products, including drugs and especially a method that can be qualified as doping". A source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters that a "saline solution" and "injection material" were found.

"The elements gathered during the search will need further investigation and analysis," Laurens said in a statement on Tuesday. Injection material can only be in possession of doctors as per the 'no needle policy' in place in cycling since 2011. Arkea-Samsic team manager Emmanuel Hubert said on Monday that the investigation did "not target the team or its staff directly". Quintana, who was allowed to continue working with his own doctor when he signed a three-year deal with Arkea-Samsic this year, later denied using any banned substances and said he had voluntarily answered investigators' questions with "a clear conscience".

Sister Madonna Buder began training at age 48 at the behest of Father John who told her it was a way of tweaking, "mind, body, and spirit" and for the relaxation and calmness it can bring an individual. She completed her first triathlon at age 52 and first Ironman event at age 55 and has continued ever since.

Interview Sponsor UCAN:

There are more reasons to promote fat loss than improving your appearance – whether it’s your goals to increase your athleticism, boost your fitness performance, or to feel healthier on a daily basis, a more optimal body composition with more muscle and less fat is attainable. But the food you choose to eat matters – for your overall health as well as your fitness.

When you focus on keeping your insulin low, studies show a decrease in fat storage and an increase in breakdown and oxidation of fat. SuperStarch is a perfect carbohydrate – it gives you the energy you need to fuel a workout properly without a drastic increase in your insulin levels, so it allows you to burn fat as fuel more efficiently.

UCAN Performance Energy and Bars are powered by SuperStarch®.   Use in your training to fuel the healthy way and recover quickly!

Interview with Rinny and T.O.:

Speaking of UCAN.  We have UCAN fan Tim O'Donnell.  T.O. is one of the world’s most successful and experienced American long-course triathletes. As a professional, he has earned 50+ podium finishes including over 22+ wins at major events throughout the world.  In 2019 in Kona we saw him put in an awesome performance to break 8 hours and claim the title of fastest American in Kona ever!

T.O.'s better half Mirinda Carfrae IRONMAN World Champion 2010, 2013 & 2014.  We've been eager to interview Rinny for years now.  She has just joined the Aqua Sphere team.  She and TO have an announcement that they made a couple of weeks ago.  For those of you that follow them, you know what we're talking about.  If you don’t, well…..let's get into the interview.

 

Post Interview Discussion

Virtual racing just not the same. We like the pressure of real racing. 

PTO and how triathlon will survive.  It's up to us. 

TO Challenge Roth

The Black Hills, a Triathlon, Bike Ride and Buffalo

175 athletes competed in either the Olympic or Long Distance (half Iron) race. This course was tough with a very hilly one or two loop bike course and run. The bike course took riders on a scenic loop through Custer State Park—appropriately named the Wildlife Loop.

Local triathlete, Kirsten McCay who won her age group and loves this triathlon said, “My favorite things about this race are the challenging but scenic bike course, the laid back atmosphere, no time limit for the course so everyone can finish, and the cash prizes for the top 3 overall men and women.” $800, $400 and $300 are given to the overall winners—not bad!

We are catching up with Siri after 3 years to talk about some of the advice she's sharing with her clients during this COVID experience.  In this UCAN coaches panel a couple of months ago, Siri shared some advice on how to reframe this as an opportunity. 

Siri has amazing courage and leadership.  She's really someone people feel like they can relate to and who she makes you feel relatable too.  Through her athletic career there were many challenges and battles, yet none would be as challenging as battle and ultimate victory over leukemia.  She is truly inspirational and wise.

  • Add 8 ounces of your preferred milk, 2 scoops of UCAN Energy + Protein Cookies and Cream, 1/2 of a banana, 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1/2 of a cup of unsweetened Greek yogurt, and a handful of ice into a blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!

For the coffee lover

  • Add 6 oz of cold coffee, 4 oz of your preferred milk, and 2 scoops of Chocolate UCAN Energy + Protein into any blender and mix until creamy! Optional: add 1/2 of a banana and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter to make a meal replacement.

 

I am into my UCAN energy coffee bars 2-3 per week and same with the UCAN Energy Powder.  I want to get some extra Plain SuperStarch Energy Tub and try these recipes and maybe experiment on my own.  UCAN gives you steady energy so you can finish stronger.

Interview with Siri Lindley:

We shared a teaser interview with Siri a few weeks ago.  It was an interview that we did in 2017.  We were a fairly new podcast back then and were really honored to have a World Cup Series winner in 2001 and 2002. One of the winningest Triathletes in Triathlon History and the Triathlete of the year in both 2001 and 2002.  Not to mention her coaching credentials.

 

Well this interview coming up we just recorded and a lot has happened since.  Siri has overcome her greatest challenge in a battle with leukemia and her beautiful victory that you are about to hear.   Bill, did you know that "Siri" is a Scandinavian female given name. It is a short form of Sigrid, of Old Norse origin, and literally meaning "beautiful victory".  I want to title this show "Beautiful Victory". 

 

Post Interview Discussion

Siri is just one of those people that is just so easy to talk to and makes you feel good. 

I'd love to introduce Morgan to Siri and Bek.  Morgan is such an animal lover.  I told her what Siri told us about pushing the deer off the road.

 

Bill?

Alistair Brownlee and Helvellyn Triathlon on Sunday

PTO Board Member Alistair Brownlee after lining up to start the World Triathlon Series in Hamburg on Saturday at 4pm and then flying back to the UK right after the race (arriving in the UK at midnight) in time to honour his commitment to Helvellyn Triathlon on Sunday am. He won the race and set a new course record. All on a few hours of sleep. What a legend. Alistair said “This year has been a tough year for professional athletes and the charitable sector so I’m going to donate half my prize money to the professional athletes who raced and didn’t win prize money today and the other half to the Brownlee Foundation. I feel lucky to be involved with the PTO and have been lucky to be well supported by the PTO this year.”

 

What's New in the 303:

Lookout Mountain Triathlon, a Record Broken and Good Day to Race

The Lookout Mountain triathlon last weekend had many side stories, like most any race of any kind. With COVID and safety protocols and procedures, athletes were really racing themselves more than ever with the swim start of splitting a lane with another athlete and only 12 people on deck at a time really spreading the race out. There were minimal athletes on the road and trail passing each other. Transition was roomy and very little overlap took place.

The Tour

  • Chris Froome to come back next year on Team Israel Startup Nation 2021
  • Sepp Kuss of Jumbo-Visma taking charge in Stage 4 on the climb and crashing in Stage 5.
  • Stage 5 of The Tour and Team Ineos putting the hammer down in 5 miles from the finish
  • Stage 5 JULIAN ALAPHILIPPE losing yellow for a penalty for taking a bottle within 20K of the finish
  • Adam Yates took Yellow in Stage 5
  • Standings after Stage 6 and Adam Yates still in Yellow

An unexpected penalty

Alaphilippe had received a 20 second penalty for taking a feed with under 20km to go in the race. As he broke the ‘unauthorized feeding’ regulation by taking a bidon from a Deceuninck-QuickStep soigneur with 17.1km to go, he was served a time penalty and his team received a fine.

Although Alaphilippe held a four-second lead over Adam Yates of Mitchelton-Scott, because of the unauthorized feed Yates is the new race leader of the Tour de France. Jumbo-Visma’s Primož Roglič now sits second, three seconds behind Yates while Tadej Pogačar of UAE Team Emirates is in third, with seven seconds off the lead. Alaphilippe was bumped into 16th place—he is now 16 seconds behind Yates.

 

PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETES ORGANISATION ANNOUNCES C$20,000 PRIZE PURSE FOR THE CANADIAN PRO TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIP

The Professional Triathletes Organisation today announced that it will provide a C$20,000 prize purse for the Canadian Pro Triathlon Championship on September 13th in Caledon, Ontario.

With all triathlon racing in Canada cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Canadian PTO Professionals have joined together to create an event that will allow Canadian professional triathletes to engage in a non-drafting Olympic distance event and celebrate the resilience of the Canadian triathlon community.  

The event will be a non-drafting Olympic distance race and will see both long-distance and ITU Canadian professionals compete against each other.  The swim will be a time trial done separately from the bike and run, then the athletes will start the bike/run in order of their swim finish according to how far back they were from the leader. In order to keep a Covid-safe environment, the entire Olympic distance bike and run will be enclosed in a subdivision that will allow for the select few spectators to see the fast-paced action. The event is expected to be broadcast so triathlon fans can experience the excitement. 

PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETES ORGANISATION AND CHALLENGE FAMILY ANNOUNCE ALLOCATION OF €40,000 PRIZE MONEY TO PROFESSIONALS AND AGE GROUPERS AT CANCELLED CHALLENGE DAVOS RACE

Video Feature: Paralympic gold medalist Allysa Seely Shares her Story

Sasha Underwood bike packed the rugged Colorado Trail Solo and shares the 16 day "monumental" ride.

Sasha took on the 550 mile Colorado Trail, climbing over 80,000 feet and spending 16 nights on her own in the woods. Known for her Ironman’s and Leadville 100 finishes, Sasha dug deep to overcome the challenges of overnighting alone, crashing a few times, getting lost once, and the normal chore of keeping hydrated and eating lots of calories. She discovered more about herself than she imagined. She called this trip “monumental” and what kept her going through the tough times were the people she was raising money for. The refugees. She gives tirelessly to this community and they gave back on this journey. Whenever she even thought of quitting, she thought of the refugees who had no choice but to continue their journey. They brought her through a couple of tough spots. She met incredible people, saw incredible places and returned home amazed at this feat and called it life changing.
