Rocktape today announced a partnership with Professional triathlete’s Kate Bevilaqua and Guy Crawford
Kate and Guy compete on the international Triathlon stage with the goal of peaking at the some of the worlds toughest races, The 70.3 (Half Ironman) and Ironman World Championships. Kate is the 2010 Ironman Western Australian Champion and the 2011 Ironman Korea Champion. Guy has recorded numerous podium finishes in the 70.3 circuit during the 2011 season.
“The training involved with long course triathlon is intense and long. You have to get use to being tired when you race is a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and a 42.2km run and your free time is generally spent recovering.” said Kate. “Weekly totals often consist of 20-25km of swimming, 500km of riding and 80-100km of running.”
“Injuries often plague our sport, so being on top of your recovery is SO important. You have to be in tune with your body because pushing it too far can often mean injuries, the most common being stress fractures of the legs,” commented Guy. “Having Rocktape on board has been essential to our build back to fitness. We both had leg issues in our base faze, but Rocktape has kept us running when we’d usually need time off. Thank-you Rocktape.”
Kate and Guy are both based in Perth Western Australia and train everywhere there’s a road or pool.
