Every summer some of the best Australian triathletes come to Boulder to train and race here in the Mecca of triathlon. They come here because the weather is good, the company is better, and there is triathlon in the water.
Recently I had a chance to sit down with two of the best Australian triathletes along with my friend Michael Stone and discuss what’s it’s like to spend you entire life traveling the world and racing on the professional triathlon circuit.
Courtney Ogden most recently won Ironman Malaysia and is in Boulder training and getting reading for his next race the 5430 long course half Iron distance race next week.

Brad Beven was one of the most successful triathletes in Australia, as well as the world, before a terrible car accident right before the 2000 summer Olympics. He won three consecutive World Cup Series and got well-deserved nickname the Croc. You name the short course race and he’s probably won it.
He's in Boulder training, racing and starting a coaching business.

Michael Stone is training for Kona, and besides kicking my butt in every one of three disciplines of triathlon, he’s also raising money for the Foundation Fight Blindness. Check out his personal story by visiting his web site by clicking HERE or listen to the show.
