Boston-based New Balance will update the award-winning 860v2 with the New Balance 860v3with a special limited edition design for the New York Metropolitan area. The update to the 860v3 design preserve both the stability quotient and ride that runners have come to enjoy in this series, with the third generation remaining largely consistent but promises an even smoother ride due to slightly reconfigured geometries and new technologies.
The special Limited Edition NYC 860v3 shoe will also be launching November, at a time when all eyes are on Manhattan. This unique design features bright, bold colors that take inspiration from graffiti art found throughout all five boroughs on streets, bridges, buildings and even inside museums. The 860v3 pays tribute to creative graffiti art that is synonymous with New York City culture and is evident to runners no matter where they train. The Limited Edition NYC 860v3 was designed to capture the proud, diverse spirit of the City and the distinct residents and visitors that make New York City one of the world’s favorite cities. The Limited Edition NYC 860v3 will be available in both men and women version at selectedspecialty retailers and New Balance Concept Stores.
The new 860v3 debuts an exciting new upper material, the more-sustainable NuFoam, which is a thin perforated layer of EVA used in the saddle that decomposes quickly in landfills. The nature and shape of this new material allows it to contour around the foot and instep for a better, more customized mid-foot fit and snug wrap around the arch.
Also new to the shoe is TBeam, a lightweight TPU shank running through the center of the midsole. Inspired by the center stringer in a surfboard which can be engineered to give the board a desired rigidity and support, TBeam has the structure to deliver better torsional stability and arch support, guaranteeing a smooth transition and dependable support at mid stance.An entirely new foam-based heel unit enables a larger Abzorb® crash pad that can be segmented to significantly help slow down the rate of pronation
The new technologies and slightly reconfigured geometries in the 860v3 lead to an improved overall mid-foot fit without compromising the locked-in heel, forgiving forefoot area and open met head windows for toe splay. By maintaining a consistent post placement and hardness as well the same offset and midsole heights as the 860v2, the 860v3 promises similar stability and support with an even better ride
The 860v3 will be launched in all New Balance Concept Stores and also at specialty retailers with the suggested retail price of $175 in November 2012.

Death In Triathlon By Holly Bennett via Triathlete Eurpore
It’s a dreaded headline for anyone involved in the sport—”Triathlete’s Death Mars Event,” and it seems all too frequent.
Why are triathletes dying during races? Is the cause avoidable? Furthermore, how do triathlon’s death statistics compare to those of other endurance competitions? And, most importantly, is there something inherent in the sport of triathlon that is responsible for these deaths? After 12 fatalities at sanctioned races in 2011, and several high-profile fatalities in 2012, USA Triathlon initiated an investigation into the 45 competition-related deaths over the 9 years from 2003 to 2011 to answer these questions.
The fact is that strenuous endurance events result in unexpected deaths, sometimes because of electrolyte and water balance issues or because of undiagnosed cardiac problems. But because most deaths have occurred during the swim leg, a popular suspect in the deaths in triathlon as opposed to the marathon has been swimming-induced pulmonary edema (SIPE). SIPE was loosely cited in the media as a possible cause of death for the athlete who perished in Ironman New York this year, an incident not included in USAT’s study.
SIPE is basically a pressure-induced suffocation in which blood seeps from lung capillaries into lung airspace. It’s a condition typically experienced by fit, well-conditioned athletes. It’s thus a possible answer to why some of the deceased have been experienced triathletes, even though we might expect neophytes to be more adversely affected by the swim leg.
The USA Triathlon investigation, however, reported “no clear evidence” that SIPE is the reason behind athlete fatalities. Nor did it “exclude the possibility of a role for SIPE in the victims’ deaths.”
Why the lack of clarity?
There seem to be two problems at work here. First is the inherent problem of diagnosing an individual’s predisposition towards SIPE. What makes one athlete experience it, but not another, is not well understood by the medical community, and is harder to diagnose than cardiovascular pathologies.
So, fine, USAT is not in the medical research business. That makes sense. Our governing body is not here to “cure cancer” so to speak, its role is to ensure the safety of participants and longevity of all things triathlon.
This brings us to the second problem: the investigation was only able to use cursory information about each death it included. Information about victims’ medical histories, autopsy reports, wetsuit details, water conditions during the swim leg, and water temperature was either incomplete or unavailable. Unfortunately for people wanting more answers, these are critical pieces of evidence in assessing SIPE and its known triggers. Without such evidence the report really should only suggest something to the effect of we do not currently have evidence to address SIPE as a cause.
Hopefully no athletes interpreted USAT’s report as reason not to worry about a mysterious condition. If any did, their fears were mistakenly allayed—the reason why triathletes have died is not-SIPE.
After equivocating about SIPE, the USAT investigation report advised racers to stop and seek help if they experience shortness of breath during the swim leg. That is certainly a good start. But athletes should also know that SIPE, because it impairs oxygen intake, will cloud judgment and thought processes (which are already arguably clouded when in one-track-mind race-mode). So, understanding its symptoms prior to competition is really important. Somewhat thankfully, SIPE has been in triathlon conversations long enough that there are a few online resources (here and here are examples).
My intent here is not to split linguistic or methodological hairs. This isn’t a diatribe against USAT, which in fact made an important first step with this investigation.
Instead it’s an exhortation for more work, understanding, and investigation: care should be taken across the board to provide safe race environments as well as accurate information. If the information doesn’t exist, we have compelling reasons to pursue it, through industry and medical research.

Lance Armstrong losing all 7 TDF?!?! This is too shocking for me (losing all 7 titles), well not all that shocking as I was already following Lance Armstrong from his days in Team Motorola to his first career win in Tour De France.
I have always believe that people with determination can do unbelievable things, and Lance was one of them, with his fight with testicular cancer to being 7 time TDF Champion, this all will change with the recent USADA winning the fight against Lance.
Am sure there will be many believers and there will also be haters, which sides of the fence do you sit on ? Innocent till proven guilty? so far, he has done thousands of drugs test… so go figure

Eddy had his first swim trials today, Benny and myself kinda pressured him into signing up his first triathlon knowing he could definitely blast through an Olympic Distance (OD) with ease, and registered he did, BUT… he signed up for a sprint instead. .. anyway its better than not signing up !! +1 for you buddy. Singapore Triathlon here we come.
The assurance of knowing he can do a full OD was because he came along with us on our Ironman training, laps after laps he followed albeit not fast he finished it all.. its the spirit that keep us going is it not?
Knowing very well of his timing, where he is able to run a sub 1hr 10k, swim a good 40min 1.5k it’s the bike equation that was missing because he never tag along (and silly me asking him to buy a bike to train with us).. little did I know he already had a bike, sneaky sneaky , I was even shocked when I was told he was a group cyclist with the Joyriderz before, not a member but he tagged along.. really sneaky dude..
So yup today was his swim trials and I met up with him at Kallang Basin swimming complex in Geylang Bahru to give some morale support,not that he needed it but I could get some time in the pool as well.
It started at 7.45am with a short brief and then the (more…)

What Does training means to you, yourself as an athlete?
Training to me means a self discipline to oneself, to me race day is not as important as training FOR race day. The journey starts when you sign-up for a race, then that’s where you start planning out your days to yourself stating when you gonna do this and do that.

In connection to my previous post about MAT REMPIT ! there was this article that Bryan sent to me that really OUTRAGED ME! I was actually neutral to the fact that i even said to leave this guys alone and they shall not harm you, what has happen in the recent wake of all these IDIOTS have really outraged me!
backtrack to the article that i quoted on the other professions that these rempits have. In that same article they the rempit’s said that they do not have a track to go to and perform their fruit bearing (YA RIGHT) activities and thats why they ram and speed those cheap bikes of theirs on the road (even my bicycle can buy two of their bikes). This is the article but its in Malay, i will translate it paragraph by paragraph !
Azeez: Bina litar lumba untuk Mat Rempit
Putera Umno akan berunding dengan Kementerian Belia dan Sukan (KBS) untuk membina litar lumba untuk Mat Rempit di setiap daerah di seluruh negara, kata ketuanya, Datuk Abdul Azeez Rahim
(Putera Umno will negotiate with the Ministry of sports to build race track for Mat Rempits in each state in Malaysia (EACH STATE) says DAtUK ABDUL AZEEZ RAHIM) what the hell is he thinking
Beliau berkata, pihaknya akan meminta kementerian tersebut menggunakan peruntukan dari program Rakan Muda bagi membina litar lumba tersebut secepat mungkin.
(he said, Putera Umno will support the given under the RAKAN MUDA program to build these tracks as soon as possible) i’ve never seen our pot holes on the road being fixed as fast
“Perkara ini perlu dipandang serius kerana selagi tidak ada litar, di manakah anak-anak muda itu mahu menunggang motosikal. Umpama pemain bolasepak, jika tidak ada padang, di mana mereka hendak bermain bola,”
(this serious matter should be looked into as because if there is no track built, where would these young lads ride their motorcycle, just like soccer, if there is no field where would they play soccer) Datuk. Soccer is a NATIONAL SPORTS so is MAT REMPITING ? how did in the world you get to your post ? i truly feel sad for a man of your status to be saying all this.
Beliau berkata, litar lumba yang akan dibina tidak semestinya bersaiz besar, memadai saiz kecil bagi menjimatkan kos pembinaan. Abdul Azeez berkata, mungkin ada sesetengah pihak yang memandang sinis terhadap usaha tersebut tetapi beliau optimis ia perlu dilakukan sebagai salah satu usaha membantu golongan Mat Rempit yang bermasalah.
(Azeez said, the track that are to be built doesn’t have to be big in size, but small in order to cut construction cost. there are people who will oppose this, but i am optimistic towards this is a way to help the Mat Rempit that is in trouble) I wouldnt mind if those track built is coming out from your POCKET and not from TAXES ! and why are we helping those idiots that is a nuinsense to society. This makes me ponder maybe your son is one of the Mat Rempits. the troubled people are the homeless, the poverty, and the sick
“Mana tahu pada suatu hari nanti akan lahir perlumba motosikal profesional yang mengharumkan nama negara di peringkat dunia terdiri daripada bekas Mat Rempit,” katanya lagi.
(who knows one of these days there would be a champion motorcyclist that would make the country proud) wow, i have not seen a champion WAU kite flyer yet, or even a top spinner in Malaysia let alone those idiots speeding down with only a few stunts up thier sleeves. (if you want to talk about spending money building stuff) build a world class sports school to nurture our ATHLETES of the state, track and field, cycling, swimming etc..etc) AND MAINTAIN the SPORTS SCHOOL !
Beliau berkata, mungkin untuk membentuk juara tidak lagi memerlukan perbelanjaan yang besar kerana Mat Rempit sudah mempunyai kemahiran dan keberanian.
(he also state that, maybe to build a champion you need not spend as much because these MAT REMPITS already have the skills and courage) i think its more of that they do not have the brains and the logics to think of their own safety.
“Apa yang perlu dilakukan ialah memberi peluang kepada mereka untuk kembali ke pangkal jalan kerana mencegah lebih baik dari mengunatinya,” jelasnya.
(what is being done is to give a chance to them(mat rempits) to become someone in to have a brighter future) I believe to be someone in JAIL !
Beliau berkata, adalah tidak wajar dengan satu dua insiden yang membabitkan Mat Rempit ini tidak bermakna semua mereka jahat dan terlibat dengan jenayah.
Katanya, masih ramai lagi Mat Rempit yang boleh menempa kejayaan jika mendapat bimbingan yang sewajarnya.
(Azeez said that, just because of a rotten apple does not mean that all these Mat rempit are criminals and are involves in crime. There are aplenty of MAt Rempit that would glorify themself if they were given the opportunity) if you say these what about those student that has gotten 10 – 15 straight A’s in school and applied for scholar ship and yet they do were not given one. this is not a transparent thing and it shows in this country, the chinese are marginalised as said by SM LEE. Why help those who does not want to be help and yet help those useless. People who shows bright future are not given the chance to support the country and yet sholarships are given by other country to take these bright and elite group. Arent you ashamed of yourself Malaysia. I AM !
“Putera Umno memberi peluang kepada Mat Rempit yang ingin kembali ke pangkal jalan tetapi dengan syarat sedia mematuhi syarat yang ditetapkan oleh pergerakan itu,” katanya lagi.
(the Putera Umno will give the chance to these Mat Rempit if they are willing to show that they would obey the rulethat has been set by them said Azeez) what rules are the Putera Umno going to set? that to win a championship mat rempit in the district of Ulu Sungai Petani? to modify their lousy bikes under the FIAA rule?
Oct 20, 06 12:07pm. Malaysiakini
I hope Datuk Azeez would rethink his position as the chief of Umno stating the likes of MAT REMPIT. think of developing the country with better tourism thus maintaining our hospitals, providing it with better equipments, better facilitys to the public and better access to other states with better highway that does jammed up and not waste the money on these low lifes.
ps: thinking the way kimberlycun says that getting a four wheeler and changing its number plate and ramming down all these guys is becoming a good idea now. (nah god said to leave those in desperation to their own will to search for a path to forgiveness as they can only help themself)
