Bike: 32:41 (23.9)
Run: 16:18 (5:50)
Total: 59:52Pre-Race:This race turned out to be an experience like none other I’ve had. It was a race, for me, designed to kick off the season with some fun, shake off the Triathlon cob weds, and if all the stars aligned hopefully come away with a new course record. Well, the best laid plans don’t always work out the way you’d like to but you ...

The threat of Mother Nature delivering 10 inches of snow did not scare away any athletes prior to the annual MSU Spring Triathlon even on a cool 40 degree morning.

And the following day, Dave was scheduled to depart for California where he begins a cross country bike trip to Georgia, hoping to complete the 2500 mile journey in 15-20 days time....

Blaine Triathlon Preview - MTN congratulates the organizers of the Blaine Triathlon on the success of their inaugural race in 2012. This year’s event promises to be even better, especially from a competitive standpoint. We’re going out on a limb here, but we believe that all of the non-open class (Overall, Juniors and the AGs starting at age 40) will fall, many of them will go down hard.
Let’s analyze the overall records: Brandon Ordway’s come-from-behind 1:13:45 and Greta Simpson’s 1:23:35. Last year’s event was staged in warm and very windy conditions. The racing at the front was conservative and strategic. Conservative tactics won’t win it on Saturday, especially on the men’s side. It will take a sub-1:10 to win and there are several guys in the field that should crack that mark, including defending champ, Brandon Ordway. Here’s how the MTN Guys see it: ...

Devon Palmer, who torched the Falls Du course record on April 27, is also in the field, as well as 2012 Rookie of the Year runner-up, Brian Sames, who has been the top amateur in two dus already this young season....
