Tri Nationals are Saturday and once again Minnesotans should figure prominently in the overall and AG results. It is our belief that two, and perhaps three, of our state's athletes will crack the..

Record Attendance at One Last Tri...
Thursday, 16 September 2010 05:00
The fifth edition of One Last Tri is Sunday. Attendance records have already been broken and other records are expected to fall hard, weather permitting. The faves will be Sam Janicki and Diane Hankee.
Here's why. Check out their 2010 racing highlights:
Not-So-Square Square Lake Preview...

Even though Square Lake isn't really square-shaped (see drawing), it is still a very good lake.
Not-so-square Square Lake is also the site of two very cool multisport races, which are called the "Square Lake Long and Short Course Triathlons," which is less clumsy, though less correct, than calling them the "Not-So-Square Square Lake Long and Short Course Triathlons."
The 11th edition of the technically incorrectly named Square Lake Short Course Tri will be staged on Saturday; the long course event--half iron-ish in distance--will celebrate it's 10th anniversary on Sunday.

By Rich Strauss (trifuel.com) - Athletes preparing for Ironman Wisconsin are eager for any information to give them a leg up on the day. Having seen the recent reports from Ironman..

Race Preview - It is a "deep in the forest" kind of event for "deep in the forest" kind of people. You know, hermits and outcasts and ne-er-do-wells; unshaven and hunched with runny noses; odoriferous folks who talk to themselves; folks whose filthy bodies are ecosystems for multiple, especially insectile, disgusting life forms. Like "Raccoon Hat Guy" in the picture (right).
Well, maybe not that grizzly.
Actually, this event, the Burrito Union 5 & 10 Hour Triathlon, is for "part-time hermits and outcasts and ne-er-do-wells," otherwise civilized..
