10 Questions with Matt Cusack

Nada, previous to getting into triathlons I spent my time in the mountains; rock and ice climbing, so compared to some of my days in the mountains, Ironman is kinda short.

Pre-race ritual?

Coffee, I tend to pace around transition and get into my zone, love soaking up race morning energy!

Strange place you bodyglide?

Hmmm, anywhere there could be friction pretty much.

What are the two most played songs on your ipod?

Welcome to the Jungle- GNR and We run this town-Jay Z

Coca Cola! a cold one and some plain ol' salty potato chips

How many #2's pre-race?

Usually 2

What is an obscure website you visit?

Cascadeclimbers.com but not sure if its obscure.

What's in your special needs bag?

Bike: First endurance liquid shot flask
Run: Red Bull (defizzed)

Team Macca or Team Crowie?

After reading Macca's book, I really have even more respect for him. Plus, he keeps in interesting, Crowie is too low key.

What's your ride?

2006 Quintana Roo Seduza, its been very good to me.
