This animated video provides a good history lesson about the Tour and how it works. Have a look!

Last year I did the K-Town Tri in Kingston, Ontario and after finishing a great swim and finding my bike, I slipped out of my wetsuit quickly while watching the triathlete in front of me sitting on his bum, struggling to get out of his wetsuit. He was swearing at his suit. He was frustrated at the amount of time and energy it took to rip the darn thing off. I was wearing the Zone 3 Aspire wetsuit and it is a suit like no other.

Zone 3 was born in the UK and is the number 1 triathlon brand in Britain. They offer a variety wetsuits at various price ranges to fit any budget. Whether you are a beginner to triathlons or a seasoned Ironman athlete, Zone 3 has a wetsuit for you.

One of the great features of their suits are the Speed Cuffs. These help make taking the wetsuit off in a race fast and easy. Have a look at this video and see how fast this swimmer can get out of it.

Anthony Brown of Zone 3 says:

In the last 2 years, the Aspire has been arguably the best reviewed wetsuit on the market. Following 10/10 reviews in 2012 and 2013, expert opinion and feedback for the suit has continued into the 2014 season. 

Triathlete magazine, arguably one of the most prestigious tri publications worldwide, have looked very favourably on our Aspire wetsuit.

 They loved our speed orientated fit allowing great core compression and reduced drag. However they were clear that this sensation is only felt in the mid section and the arm and shoulders ensure great flexibility.  The testers went onto say:

 "The suit’s firm design helps put even more power into the water. Pure Swimmers will love the natural feel of this suit and those with less refined technique will benefit from its ample buoyancy"

After the tragedy that occurred at the Boston Marathon, a group of individuals have put forth the idea of selling t-shirts to raise money for the Boston One Fund, a fund to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.

This inspired Ottawa resident and runner Brent Smyth to bring the idea here in Ottawa in time for the Ottawa Race Weekend later on this month. Please consider purchasing the blue and yellow T-shirts and wearing them for the race or make a donation directly to THE ONE FUND.

The T-shirts sell for $26.20 and you can order them here.

CBC's Fifth Estate aired an episode on Lance Armstrong and interviewed many people who knew about his secrets and doping abuse. To many, Lance was an inspiration by overcoming cancer, starting the Livestrong Foundation and being one of the world's greatest athletes.
