Joe Maloy is currently 2nd in the point standings to qualify for the 2016 United States Men’s Olympic team.

Joe, age 30, talks about his path in triathlon and his current training base in Poway, California.

It’s an inside look at the process and dedication required to become an Olympian.  Joe swam in college, won 2009 USAT Age Group National Championships, and continued to improve as he pursued ITU draft legal racing.  Have a listen and you’ll have someone to root for in Brazil if Joe qualifies for the team.

TT055: Triathlon Wisdom From Olympian Victor Plata & Bike Fitting/Aerodynamics With Retul and Specialized

Victor Plata, a 2004 triathlon Olympian for the United States, is the guest in the first half of this episode.  Victor retired in 2011 and we look back at his career, catch up with his post-triathlon life, and he provides wisdom for all triathletes.

Todd Carver of Retul and Scott Holtz of Specialized are the guests for the second half of the show.  Todd, also the guest on episode 10, is an expert bike fitter and founder of the bike fitting company Retul.  Scott is a former bike fitter and works for Specialized as the head of the Specialized Bicycle Component University and Dealer Education.

Specialized has been operating their own wind tunnel for a year, and we discuss some of the bike fit lessons that Scott and Todd have learned both in the tunnel and from many years of expertise in the field.
