Beyond the Bike: Off-Season Adventures
Row, Run, and Ride with Ventum
Omar Nour — Professional triathlete and member of the Ventum family — and his partner-in-adventure Omar Samra are setting off from the Canary Islands… to row across the Atlantic! Once fair weather allowed them to safely depart from the islands, they began their journey on Thursday, December 14. Please join us in cheering for Team O2’s amazing feat! Check out their video below, and you can follow their progress with the online race tracker.
Ventum: It’s not just for your bike anymore.

Just starting his off-season, Ventum Pro Cody Beals has a few activities planned, like a new photo shoot…
…While Cameron Dye just finished his off-season, and is now back in training to prepare for 2018.
Back on the grind… The three week break I take at the end of the race season is in many ways the most important training block of myyear. Without a true mental and physical break, staying focused and getting the work done during the season would be impossible! The chance to catch up with friends, watch cartoons with the kids,stay out late, and put a dent in the whisky collection is the key to putting in the work required.So here’s to a great 2018… 💪🏽🏆🏁 #triathlon #offseason #downtime #swimming #outdoors #training
Triathlete Cristina Mata put together a fun little video of her Ventum, showing how easy it is to get your Ventum One ride-ready!
For those that need their athletic science fix, self-proclaimed champion-nerd-in-jock’s-clothing Cody Beals highlights a study that investigates the correlation between energy deficiency and metabolic disturbances.
Wonder how this translates to male athletes. I've long suspected that within-day energy deficiency (underfueled/fasted workouts) played a major role in my past experience with low testosterone and related issues. https://t.co/yNhtFmAfYk
