Michellie Jones

Sport/discipline: Triathlon

About Michellie: I turned pro way back in the Ice Age in 1988. Back, in the days of Grip Shift. Interesting facts I have a twin sister who often gets, "Go Michellie!" I ride horses, and my sister calls me Barbie because of all my horse riding attire.

Hometown: Thirlmere, N.S.W Australia

Current residence: Carlsbad, Calif.

SRAM® products used: RED Black edition, R2C shifters, pink hoods for my Double Tap® on my road bike, 53 PowerGlide™ Aero Chain Ring.

Zipp® products used: 404 Firecrest®, Tangent™ tubular and clincher tires, Sub-9 Disc, 808 Firecrest wheels, Service Course® SL, Zipp wheel bag.

Favorite SRAM product and why: R2C Shifter because I had them before Lance. :)

Favorite Zipp product and why: Any of the Zipp wheels are by far the best on the market. Love my custom decals.

Do you train with a SRAM-Quarq power meter? The best power meter because it's by far the easiest to operate.

What is one surprising or helpful thing you learned about yourself from training and/or racing with power? It's great to play games for instance doing a 30 second sprint on the trainer at the very end of your final interval and seeing who can push out the most watts.

You're stranded on a desert island and you have to choose one of each of the following:

One album? INXS Greatest hits

One candy? Milky Bar (White Chocolate)

One vice? Do triathlete’s have these? :)
