Jordan Rapp: Triathlete of the Year!

February 12th, 2013 - Posted by zoot

Jordan Rapp, Ron Smith Triathlete of the Year

Congratulations to Jordan Rapp who was just named one of Ron Smith Triathletes of the Year by Triathlon Business International.  ”The award, named after Ron Smith, one of triathlon’s earliest pioneers, recognizes a male and female triathlete who best demonstrate a combination of strong moral character, athletic performance and professionalism in the sport of triathlon. The award acknowledges triathletes who are not only strong competitors, but also are a role model to all; and who help promote the sport and pave the way for future triathletes.” – TBI

2012 was quite a year for Jordan both professionally and personally. Wins included: Ironman Texas, Ironman US Championships, and Leadman Epic 250 Bend.  Equally impressive, Jordan has raised $160,000 for World Bicycle Relief, providing 1,200 bicycles to people in sub-Saharan Africa.

Inside Triathlon recently posted this article: American Ironman champion Jordan Rapp by the numbers. (Nov/Dec 2012 issue of Inside Triathlon magazine)

“In 2010, just a few months after Jordan “Rappstar” Rapp’s second Ironman victory (2009 Ironman Arizona), Rapp was hit by a car while on a training ride in Oxnard, Calif. He was left for dead on the side of the road with several fractures and two jugular veins severed. He made one of the most impressive comebacks the sport has ever seen, getting back to the start line of Ironman Arizona that same year and finishing fourth. He has since seen growing success in long course: winning Ironman Canada and the ITU Long Distance World Championship in 2011, and Ironman Texas and Ironman U.S. Championship in New York City in 2012.”

32: Age

6’3”: Height

7: Pro seasons

243: Number of days between the crash and his first Ironman back

293 watts: Highest average power for 112 miles (at 2012 Ironman Texas)

20K time trial: Hardest bike workout

3:03 a.m.: The time he woke up for Ironman New York

FIVE: Number of Ironman wins

2:55:32 (or 6:42 min/mile): Fastest marathon before the crash (2009 Ironman Canada)

2:46:55 (or 6:22 min/mile): Fastest marathon after the crash (2012 Ironman Texas)

5,220 yards: Distance he swam in one hour to win the 30-34 age group at the USMS Long Distance National Championships (aka “The Postal Swim”)

Congratulations Jordan, Ron Smith Triathlete of the Year!

Ben Hoffman Re-Signs with Zoot Sports

February 5th, 2013 - Posted by zoot

 

Ben Hoffman has re-signed with Zoot Sports! Ben will continue to race and train in Zoot “Head To Toe” across the country competing in every distance triathlon from sprint to Ironman for the next three years.

Zoot, have always thought of their athletes as lifelong partnerships, where they look to support them with everything they need to compete in Triathlon and the athletes support them with their in depth testing, feedback, research and just plain awesome relationships. Ben fits in perfect with the Zoot Team because he is so easy to work with and has such a great sense of humor, but at the same time he is very focused on his professional career.

“I am honored and humbled to be included on the roster of world-class athletes racing for the Zoot Tribe for the upcoming triathlon seasons. After two successful years wearing their quality products, I am happy to announce that I will be back swimming in their wetsuits and swim skins, biking in their apparel, and running in their shoes to victory! To be aligned with a company that has literally been there from the start, I can have full confidence that they will continue to manufacture superior products and push the envelope on new design and innovation, and listen closely to the input that all their athletes have. Triathlon is becoming more and more competitive all the time, and that is why I have chosen to give myself every possible advantage by training and racing in Zoot gear. With a common vision of excellence and enjoying the sport we all love, I’m looking forward to supporting Zoot’s goals while being supported in my own for many years to come. Full gas!” says Ben

Ben has continued to improve and become a better triathlete every year. Last year in 2012 he claimed two more Ironman Victories at St. George, Utah and Madison, Wisconsin. He is the true meaning of an endurance athlete.
