Whatever it Takes...

Gwen Jorgensen knew it. She just didn't want to believe it.  

So she shouted to a rider with a better view.

“Do I have a flat?”

“Yes.”

“Are you sure? You need to be sure!” she urged.

“Yes! You have a flat.”

So, roughly 40 minutes into her Olympic debut, she stopped, ejected her rear wheel, and swapped it for another while a half-dozen people passed her. She would later discover that a tiny piece of glass had split her tire....

Totally Crazy Weekend!

Weekend Preves & Predictions...

BH_2016.pngThere are four adult triathlons in Minnesota this weekend and we've been able to see the entrants lists for three of them. We're talking about Saturday's Waseca Sprint and Sunday's Brewhouse and Graniteman-Big Lake.

We have not seen the reg. list for the Minnewaska Tri, but we hope that they, like the aforementioned races, will enjoy a satisfying turnout.

Yup, that's right. Brewhouse (500ish), Waseca (240ish) and Big Lake (350ish) have sweet enrollments that will be added to in the coming days. We certainly hope this is demonstrating an upswing in race attendance.

So, now for some mini-previews, replete with some predictions.

 

WASECA SPRINT - This race has been around for eight seasons and though attendances have been disappointing at times, thanks largely to scheduling issues, the folks from Waseca, which is an awesome small city, have insisted...

By Craig Prudhomme

 

Four short years after a catastrophic flood hit Moose Lake and the surrounding area, our city has once again been inundated. The damage is significant and still being assessed as flood waters begin to recede.  Despite being much better prepared this time there are a number of events which have combined to affect every segment of our race.

  • High water has caused sewage discharge upstream to flow into the lake. Until the water level comes down to normal levels and is tested as clear by the state, there is no swimming allowed....
