“I’d love to show people the excitement of off-road triathlon. It just takes practice. Just like on-road. Except without cars! Beyond that, I hope to set a good example for younger pros. You can be yourself, have fun, and be fast at the same time. You don’t have to be stern and miserable to be fast, or try to fit a mold.” - Chris Ganter

 

Xterra superstar Chris Ganter is sharing the stoke: “I’ve always pushed my training partners Eric and Trevor to get on the dirt, be stoked and have fun. And that’s really what Transition Four is all about.” Triathlon is more than sweaty miles on the trainer, and hours staring at the black line. Ganter’s free spirit is infectious, and his approach to training and life inspires us to get off of the road. 

 

At Transition Four, we want to prove that triathlon can be playful and fun, even in the thick of a massive training block. Ganter is a true pro, but he know’s there’s more to performance and to life than the grind: “I’ve always been myself, for better or worse. I have interests outside of swim, bike, run, and I see that as a strength. It may ‘distract’ from being ‘obsessed’ or whatever, but I like being well-rounded.” Ganter plays guitar, surfs, and rock climbs. He’s getting 100% out of life. Ganter proves what we’re working to establish here at Transition Four: the epic, breakout performances happen when we’re stoked and having fun. 

 

We’re at our best when we’re ‘playing’ triathlon. “Even on a mundane cruise ride, I’m nose manualing off curbs or riding wheelies. I try to keep the stoke alive at all times.”  Ganter builds us up and gets us out of our comfort zone. His affinity for adventure is contagious, and we’re all along for the ride.
