Wanted to say thanks to long time racer and triathlete Troy Roussel
for representing Precision Bikes, while out in Hawaii at a grueling training camp.
Listed below are totals he accomplished the week before a half Ironman. 

Epic Camp Lite – Kona and Honu 70.3 Hawaii

The camp was a truly epic experience hosted by Coach John Newsom. 14 attendees from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong spent 6 days training together that started by riding the Ironman World Championship course with a 5 mile run of the bike and concluded with the Honu 70.3 Hawaii Race in Kona.
Training totals for the week:
Bike:
·         6 days
·         500+ Miles
·         7000+ meters climbing
Run:
·         4 days with 2 runs off the bike
·         30 miles
·         A longer day running out of the Energy Lab
Swim:
·         4 days with 3 days on the Ironman course
·         5+ miles
·         All open water
It was full 7 to 8 hours of training each day for the most part with a slight taper at the end of the week leading to the race. The group rode different routes every day and ran or swam, or both, depending on the day. Kona was a great venue for completing my first 70.3 distance race and perfect ending to the week. The comments from the Pros and Age Groupers were that it was the windiest race they had ever competed in. First time that I have every seen cyclist blown off the road during a race.
I completed the course is 5 hours and 35 minutes. Thanks to Mark and the Precision team on the equipment advice and support.
