So what happens after you become the Ironman World Champion? Plenty! Three weeks after the biggest win of his life, Pete Jacobs came on to take us through the months and weeks leading into Kona and the blow-by-blow of race day.
Funny story. The evening before this chat, Pete was in Noosa having dinner with fellow Aussies three-time Ironman World champion Craig Alexander and two-time Ironman World Champion Chris McCormack. A fan came up and wanted to get a photo…..with Crowie and Macca. “Pete, it just shows that winning only once doesn’t quite do it,” laughed Crowie.
Guy East grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, started riding bikes at the age of 12, and had a goal of making the 2012 U.S. Olympic Cycling Team. A bike race in Mexico City in 2010 changed all of that. East decided there was something wrong with staying at a five-star hotel while people were living in squalor just blocks away. So what did he do? Plenty. He moved to Tijuana, Mexico to help build homes for the homeless while still keeping his hand in cycling by racing six-day events in Europe.
Guy came in studio to talk about the two lives he leads and the conversation was fascinating.
Josiah Middaugh just took second place at the XTERRA World Championship in Maui after winning the U.S. National XTERRA title in September. While he competes against the best off-road triathletes in the world, he is also a father of three who has to squeeze in his racing and training around a full time job back in Colorado. Middaugh is the epitome of a true multi-sport athlete since he also dominates at both the Teva Games and the Mt. Taylor Quadrathlon.
