Pro triathlete uses Edge 305 for training and race strategies


With respect to my race at the Marin County Triathlon, I was most concerned with my speed on the bike course. I came out of the swim with some significant ground to make up on the pros in front of me. Once on the bike, I made sure to pay attention to just how fast I was riding. I did not want to expend too much energy too early and sacrifice the rest of my race. Having the Edge there served a multi-faceted purpose: it kept me from blasting off to the moon and I was able to catch the others by the end of the bike segment. Because I had kept my speed somewhat in check, I had enough energy to outrun them and earn my first pro victory.

I owe a lot to the Garmin Edge 305. All of its features are a great help. Beyond its technological features, it is small, light, and very easy to carry. It has helped me be very consistent in my training, and as noted above, it has helped me develop race strategies both before and during events. Even though it is not the most advanced model in the Garmin GPS-enabled cycle computer line, I highly recommend the Edge 305, and I hope you have the opportunity to try it out.

Brice Winkler is a professional triathlete and a 4th year student at UC Berkeley who just earned his B.A in Applied Mathematics with a specialization in industrial engineering and operations research. He is also majoring in Spanish language and literature and will be finishing that degree shortly. When he isn't studying or training, he enjoys reading the news, hanging out with friends, and meeting new people. His trip to Edinburgh for the Duathlon World Championships was his first extended trip outside of the United States and it got him very excited to travel to more foreign countries and witness firsthand new cultures and lifestyles.
