I have always tried to partner only with companies I respect, products I believe in, and people I am proud to associate with. A huge thanks to those who have offered their support and their excellent services along the way and are so committed to the sport of triathlon. They have all been instrumental in my success.
Please check out the following companies and feel free to ask me about how they have made me a better athlete and supported the causes I believe in.

Over the years, ISM has seen success with Ironman wins, Olympic medals, Road Racing and countless age group victories. Pros and amateurs alike are finding riding and competing comfortable again. Our staff lives for cycling. If we aren’t working an expo on the weekends or on the phones taking orders, chances are you’ll see us mixing it up at local road rides, terrorizing the trails, or training for our next triathlon. Or perhaps we are in a wind tunnel working with athletes positions or testing new products.
We began serving the athletic community on January 1, 2011 after decades helping to improve the quality of life for over 50,000 patients through pneumatic compression pump therapy. The results this therapy has produced for those suffering from arterial and venous disease, lymphedema and other circulatory problems like diabetes have been tremendous. Further research revealed this same technology could prove equally beneficial to athletes. Scientific evidence abounds in support of the use of sequential compression to expedite recovery, but our team became excited by the prospect of sharing these benefits firsthand with the athletic community. What we believed from the start has proven to be true – once you try RecoveryPump and experience the benefits it provides, you’ll join the “Recovery Revolution” and start pumping with us.
At Kogel Bearings, we believe that quality ceramic bearings set the gold standard for ball bearings in bicycles. Silicon Nitride combines a set of material properties that make it perfect for bicycle bearings. The material is hard, resistant to wear, can be made into perfectly round balls with super tight tolerances and can be polished smoother than any metal. On top of all that, the material does not rust or oxidize. Following the motto “Just because it fits, doesn’t make it right” has sent Kogel on a mission to develop a native solution for (almost) every combination of crank and frame. In 2017 we are still fighting that battle. It seems that frame manufacturers have not grown tired of reinventing a hole in a frame. Working with top level racers, we constantly gather feedback about our products and tweak them for better performance.
Austin, TX based State Wheels is one of those select few wheel manufacturers that exist in between the two extremes. They offer innovative, quality wheels with a lot less hype. It’s a great option for any cyclist looking for performance, but bored to tears of seeing the same wheels at every group ride. Using quality, American made products, like White Industries hubsets, and building every wheel by hand helps to define the quality of State Wheels. And you’ve probably seen the State Wheels sprinter van providing neutral support for bike races and triathlons all over Texas. If you’re interested in the idea of riding a Texas based, high quality wheelset that’s hand built, give these guys a try. The quality and durability is on par with anything on the market today.
Jarrod Shoemaker and Alicia Kaye are married, professional triathletes who transplanted themselves into the sunny state of Florida in 2010. They were in search of a sunscreen that worked as hard as they do and could endure their hardest workouts. Together, they developed a sunscreen with great ingredients that was waterproof, sweatproof, moisturizing, safe for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic, and that protected against UVA & UVB. They were amazed by the sunscreen and quickly began expanding Endurance Shield’s other products (lip protectant, chamois creme, and muscle relief & repair).
