::Racing Compressport::

This time last year I would have already finished up racing an Ironman, going into this season my first tri race will come at another new race for me.  On May 26th I’ll be racing the Subaru Shawnigan Lake half ironman on Vancouver Island.  I’m interested to see how my bike fitness has done over the winter, but also excited to race in some new gear.

Loaded with features.  Shorts are a little longer then the ones I've worn in the past, giving you full quad coverage.

While I was in Kona last year I was introduced to Compressort at the expo.  The salesman looked savaged,  he had a very busy week pumping up their line of products.  Looking back I wish I could have found about it sooner, but going into this year I’ll be racing in a compressport kit from Tri Geeks. I’ve already raced my BMO half marathon in a pair of compressport socks and have done training rides in the tri  short and tri shirt.  I really enjoy the feeling when you put this stuff on, its wraps you up nicely and makes you feel fast.  One thing that I noticed right away when pulled this product out of the box is very durable.  You can tell just by holding it, that this product will last more then just one season.  My kit from last year is already falling apart!  I don’t believe any tri-gear company comes with a two year warranty like compressport.  They stand behind their products, and believe in what they make.  I still have to get into full race mode with this stuff and will give a full report once I finish the race.

I’m looking to take another step this year in cutting time down on my bike fitness and feel that my running is getting stronger off the bike as well.  I’ve got some high hopes for this coming weekend and hope to get some good data to reflect on going into Ironman Couer d’alene on June 23!

Probably the most popular product.  I'm still getting use to the feeling while in motion but for recovery, its instant how different your calves feel.
