ATHLETIC BY NATURE
By her sophomore year in high school Sarah had won the Maine State Cross Country title, placed eighth at the National Cross Country Championships, and headed to a Vermont ski academy to race against the world’s best. In college she was captain of the cross-country team and a Division I ski racer.
In late 2009 Sarah competed in her first triathlon on a bet from a friend, and fell in love with the sport. Over the next the two years she made the journey from newbie triathlete to amateur champion, finishing as the top American amateur at the 2011 Ironman World Championships. In 2012 she turned pro, won her first Ironman 70.3 New Orleans title, and became a threat in every race she enters. Between racing and training, Sarah also found time to help develop the Cervélo P5X; for more on her involvement in the creation of the ultimate triathlon bike, click here.
Sarah recently started a website called The Habit Project. It explores her journey from being a two-pack-a-day smoker and over-worked corporate executive lacking life balance to a pro triathlete. The goal is to motivate and inspire others to work towards making small, positive habit changes in order to generate better health, happiness and balance in their lives. Sarah also supports i-tri, a community-based intervention program that teaches at-risk adolescent girls self-respect, personal empowerment, positive body image and healthy lifestyles through the sport of triathlon.
Beyond the hard training days and choosing the best equipment, Sarah has learned over the years what it takes to perform at her personal best. These short videos detail her personal development as an elite professional athlete on the Road to Kona 2017.
There’s more to the ultimate triathlon bike than blowing benchmarks away. For the first time in Cervélo’s history — for the first time in history, period — the unique needs of every triathlete, whether training, racing or travelling, are truly front and centre.
Proven fastest in the wind tunnel and on the Ironman circuit, the P5 showcases Cervélo’s industry-leading aerodynamic engineering.
The S5 aero road bike is the proven leader of the aero road segment – faster, stiffer, and more responsive. The bike of choice for most of the Dimension Data Team including Mark Cavendish.
The C5, is designed to inspire confidence through a new endurance fit that delivers predictable, stable handling.
