Welcome to the Trisutto Blog

Flying to even greater heights

I have received many congratulatory notes, and wish to say thank you from Daniela and myself. While people want a race report, I find it difficult to write one, so for now I’d just like to tell the inside story that our athletes at camp see every day. I will let Dave...

ITU is Missing the Boat!

As the countdown to Kona begins, the build up is reaching fever pitch. The Triathlon community is immersed in debate, insider tidbits on social media, and as a whole can't wait for Saturday week. In stark contrast, the ITU in their wisdom, still cling to the theory...

A Way Forward: WTS, Travel & Relays

Following an article a couple of weeks ago regarding the WTS Relays, I've been challenged a few times as to what I'd do differently. I'm happy if it's opened up some constructive debate within our group and at the grassroots level and always happy to provide some...

The Thin Edge of the Wedge: ITU Relay

Ashleigh Gentle (Aus) and Julie Derron (Sui) drive the chase pack at ITU Hamburg. Photo Credit: ITU Media How exciting is the new Relay format! And how great is it for triathlon!? Please. It's a Frankenstein that's turning on its creator. In a format entirely...

What Really Happened in Frankfurt

Before all the supposed experts analyse the European Championship and the ins and outs of who did what and why, I thought I would let our Trisutto family know what really did happen. Both Jan and the Bird who have for the last 3 years been the supreme athletes, have...

What is a Break Really?

This blog is in response to enquiries from our readers. They see differing rest periods given to different athletes for their 'time off' out of race season. After reading that Daniela was given an extended long rest of three months it has thrown confusion into what is...

The Importance of Recovery

Over the years I have been very misunderstood by many pundits who have not even taken the time to visit our coaching camps to see what we actually do. However I have talked with and visited many great coaches who have that most important feature that makes them...

Recovery – the Trisutto Way

Our personal Trisutto camp is in full swing in St Moritz. We have my coaching nirvana, athletes from very beginners, to Olympic and Kona champions all side by side in our pool, and the coach is loving it.  Ability and speed is no barrier to being in our camp. We have...

The master and the apprentice!

Thursday night at the ITU teams race in Nottingham was a very special night for me personally, and for Trisutto. Representing Switzerland was Nicola Spirig and her apprentice Julie Derron  - for the very first time together on the same Swiss team. It has been a...

Gyms – The Real Deal

The month of May I headed home to Australia to see family, friends and to do a memorial camp for one of my old coaches who was struck down by stomach cancer. We paid tribute to one of triathlon’s real supporters at every level - Scott 'Aardvark' Penny.  Scott was old...

Ironman Debut!

Laura Nadeau raced her first Ironman this weekend at Ironman Phillipines in Subic Bay. A sweltering race of 40 degree heat high winds and hilly course. If you ever want to test yourself against the elements, and make Kona feel like a breeze this is the event for that!...

The Bird is in the Trisutto Nest

The bird is in the Trisutto nest! We have been relatively quiet about the start of the Angry Bird's season. As some of our followers have noted that she will be toeing the start line at 70.3 Rapperswil I thought it best that I let our Trisutto supporters know from the...

Travel: The Invisible Performance Killer

After a recent article on hidden performance killers I received multiple emails from followers asking about travel, some inquisitive and some informing me that I place too much importance on it. As I return home on the 24 hour trip from Australia and as we start the...

A Texas Sized Problem

Competitors at IM Texas last weekend.  As a young man in the 70s I played a sport that was rising in numbers, influence and global popularity. It seemed every town was putting in facilities to accommodate players – and each month were new tournaments, sponsors and...

5 Invisible Race Performance Enhancers

The racing season has begun and we are barely one month into it and our new group of pros and age groupers alike are making every mistake in the book. As this is a constant theme for most triathletes I thought I’d jot down five points to help: 1) Travel a) Using your...
