jasmineNAME DROPPAGE - Brett Lovaas' victory on Sunday at the 12th Lakes Country Triathlon was his 26th win since he exiled himself from the Cheesehead State in 1997 and became a Minnesota guy. Over the 15-year period that he has been a Twin Citizen, only St. Paul's David Thompson (80), Cathy Yndestad (58), Brian Bich (43), and Jan Guenther (41, we think?) have won more multisport races. Lovaas is currently tied with Patrick Parish, who has also won 26 trs & dus, for 5th place on this august list.

DU-ING WELL THESE DAYS - Dan Arlandson, who is nice guy, kinda tall and doesn't say much, and Jasmine Carlson, who is also very nice, in addition to being arrestingly pretty, won the 4th annual Minneapolis Duathlon on Sunday. As you can see, Jasmine (phone L) has an impressive "six pack." With two wins, a 3rd and a 5th in 2012 du action, Dan may be looking at a Duathlete of the Year nomination. MPLS DU RESULTS...

Tomorrow on MTN...

sueStuff - Tomorrow we are posting stories on the Minnesota men and women who will racing at AG Nationals next weekend, and how we think some of them will fare.

Guess, what? We're predicting that at least one of the two overall National champions will be a Loon Stater. We also suspect there will be a few AG NCs, as well.

The 3rd new post of the day will be Rand Middleton's totally good coverage of the 9th annual Green Lake Triathlon.

FYI, Sue Rubens (photo L) claimed the overall masters title at Sunday's Rev 3-Wisconsin Dells Half IM, finishing 4th overall among the amateur women. Way to rock it, Sue!
