Discounts from Jersey Shore MultiSport 2013 Sponsors A friend and fellow triathlete, Mark Heid started a new business called Wheel Traders. WT sells BOTH new and used wheels. They are authorized dealers for Easton and Reynolds and also carry Zipp, Campy, Bontrager. Not only that, they will take your old wheels on trade-in. The discount on Easton and Reynolds may be a little more than on those wheelsets you special order. For Jersey Shore Multi-Sport participants, WT is offering 25% off. I believe most bike shops will do 20% off and WT should beat that. Also, and I think its key, WT will take used wheelsets on trade, which shops don’t do. Visit their website athttp://www.racewheeltraders.com/
Xterra Wetsuits is again working with JSMS. You can use the code (R-JSM) as many times as you want and share it with your friends. They are not only a sponsor, but Carrie and I each have both racing and training suits. Honestly, they offer a great value and the customer service is unbeatable. The Vector long sleeve ($240) or Vortex long sleeve ($160) is a great training and racing suit and you really can’t beat the price. We will offer a demo-day later this spring so you can try them on and make sure you get the right size suit.http://www.xterrawetsuits.com/We would also like to welcome USI Insurance who is a financial backer. Without the support of companies like USI we would not be able to keep the cost of racing so low. The cost associated with putting on quality races are high and we would like to thank all of our sponsors for the 2013 season.
Hope you are able to take advantage of some of these discounts
We have been working hard to assemble a group of sponsors who can help you to be the best triathlete you can be. Over the coming weeks we will highlight all of our sponsors. Over the next two weeks we will let you know how to be the best triathlete you can be in 2013.
Training properly is the key to having a good triathlon and BPC has the pedigree of producing winners. Currently Carrie Slavinski, of both BPC and JSMS, hosts a triathlete spin class at Therapeutic Fitness on Thursday nights at 7 pm. BPC also hosts a plyo-core-spin class that works on everything from bike strength and speed, core fitness, and agility and explosiveness on Saturday mornings at 9:15. It is an all-out workout! These classes will continue through March and are open to ALL athletes of ALL levels on a pay-as-you-go basis ($10-15 per class). In April BPC will offer free track running sessions at Point Pleasant Boro High School at 5:30 every Wednesday night. These workouts are guaranteed to make you a better, faster runner. Later this spring and summer BPC will also lead free of charge open water swims, all to help you become a better athlete.
Therapeutic Fitness is the home of JSMS and BPC. Roger Faulkenbury has an expertise in biomechanics and massage therapy and can both fix what ails you and address the underlying issues in order to keep you strong and injury free. Caron Flagg and Roger offer individual training sessions and group strength sessions throughout the week and TF offers additional classes in Pilates and Yoga. You can find a class schedule here.
Next week: Discounts for you!
Happy 2013 “MultiSporters”!It is with great excitement that we announce a change of leadership at Jersey Shore MultiSport! Carrie and Dave Slavinski have become the new owners of JSMS. Carrie Slavinski, a 2-time Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifier and USAT All-American, will serve as Operations Director. ITU World Champion, USAT National Champion, and Ironman 70.3 World Champion, Dave Slavinski will serve as Race Director . We strive to make your race experience the best it can possibly be. With all of the choices there are for racing, we would like to thank you for racing with JSMS. Additionally we would like to ask you what you would like to see for from us in 2013. Please take a couple minutes to fill out the following survey so we can see how to give you the best training and racing experiences possible. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KXB9TS7 You can friend Jersey Shore MultiSport on Facebook or email us directly at Carrie@JSMultiSport.com or Dave@JSMultiSport.com. We have competed in and coached athletes in hundreds of races since starting our athletic careers way back in the 70s. Believe us, we have experienced the “best” and the “worst” races out there! We therefore know how to make your race experience the “best” it can be!
There will be limited season passes available as well as early registration for our events starting on February 1, 2013 at www.JSmultisport.com . Check it out and start planning early while there are deals to be had!
The 2013 season will be different then any we have had in the past. The damage the Jersey Shore has experienced is hard to describe even if you live here and get to see it first hand. Everyday it gets a little better here at the shore, but many communities still have a long way to go.
Swim Clinics: BPC Triathlon and JSMS will once again partner to host swims in 2013. We are working on safe venues for both the clinics and the open water race. With the number of houses, cars, and boats on the bottom of many of our waterways it is hard to know where we are going to find a place to swim that is 100% hazard-free. We are committed to providing a safe environment for which to host all of our swims so we will look to open registration for the May/June swim season in March.
ViceVersa,Born to Tri & One More Tri: The JSMS schedule will consist of two great series races and the Special Olympics JSMS produced One More Tri in Monmouth County. Despite massive damage to the beach club in Allenhurst, Vice Versa will go on! There will once again be three great ways to compete in this race: run-bike-swim, swim-bike-run, or the Lame Duck (swim-bike).
Jersey Shore Kick Off and Clam Man: Berkley Island Park sustained major damage from the storm and is in the process of starting the rebuilding process. We remain in contact with the parks department about the possibility of having Clam Man later this season, but in all reality, these two races will be back in the new and improved park in 2014.
Lavaman: Knowing the level of destruction on the barrier island, including the destruction of Dave’s parents’ home, we are not even pursuing Lavallette in 2013. As a community, Lavallette and Ortley Beach have a long, hard process ahead of them as they look to restore their communities to their previous glory. We feel it selfish to push these towns to host a race when they have more pressing issues. We know many of the home owners in these areas who were flooded and are forced to renovate or totally rebuild. They will be busy trying to get ready for the summer without us asking them to close their roads once again for our race. We hope for a speedy and full recovery for these towns and we hope to have the opportunity to race there again in the future.
We are looking forward to your feedback and helping you get the best race experience possible! Train hard, train smart, and see you soon!
Carrie and Dave Slavinski
