Eric Lagerstrom competed in his first triathlon when he was 12, turned pro at 23, and is now a top competitor on the World Triathlon Series. He's also become a skilled videographer and often captures footage during his own races using GoPros and drones.
Lagerstrom currently lives in a 1986 Winnebago and we called him to talk about what gear he keeps in his home-on-wheels at all times.
I always travel with a jar of Adams 100% Natural Chunky. When I get to a race, I can just grab a loaf of bread and some honey or jam and I’m set for a quick meal.
My camera gear is with me at all time— I can carry most of it in one backpack. I have several GoPros for racing, a DSLR, a couple gimbals, and a drone. For my DSLR, I use the Panasonic Lumix GH3, which is small and compact enough to travel with.
The DJI Mavic Pro is portable enough to travel with and I can put it in a little backpack while I ride.
Energy Bars and Drink
There is no problem in this world that can’t be tackled with a Red Bull and a Clif Bar. I’ve had so many workouts that were completely saved or turned around by the magical combination of caffeine and calories. I like the Sierra Trail Mix bars.
When you cross a bunch of time zones, melatonin is a must. It basically cues your body to start its sleep cycle, the same as when the sun goes down.
I edit all of my own video content— usually during long flights. I like my Asus gaming laptop for video editing because it’s fast and has a big screen.
I use Pioneer DJ headphones for long flights and editing videos. They're one of my favorite things I own.
Portable Coffee Maker
Nothing beats an AeroPress for on-the-go coffee in my opinion.
