Planning your race travel

Race-cations (as we like to call them) provide a special opportunity to travel to a destination, race somewhere new and (hopefully) enjoy a little sight-seeing and R&R after the race. Although traveling to a race should be exciting, racing outside of your home environment can be stressful, as there are many unknowns and potential logistical nightmares of racing in an unfamiliar venue. For many athletes, the normal anxiety, worries and fears that occur during race week can be doubled when racing outside of your home environment or in a new location.

My new Ventum NS1 Road Bike

Even though my primary sport is triathlon, I still spend time on my road bike (at least once a week outside).

Although our relationship is still new, I absolutely love riding this bike. It handles extremely well, is very smooth over the bumpy roads and feels stiff and responsive.

The bike was shipped to us from Ventum in a large box, which made assembly pretty easy. I love the little details that Ventum puts into their shipping process.




After two full seasons on my Ventum One triathlon bike (which I absolutely love), I knew that staying …
