Press Release - Due to a couple unforeseen planning complications this year, Mosquitoman Duathlon is cancelled for 2011. Although we announce this with some disappointment, we believe that it is the correct decision to make. We continually strive to produce events that are top notch and professional in every aspect. With difficulties surrounding the bike and run courses, we simply could not put together a course that satisfied our standards of race excellence. For those of you that have already registered for the race, you will be issued a refund no later than 08/22/11. You should see the correct amount returned to your card within the next few

* Pigman XIII Preview - This iconic half launched in 1998 amid hot, humid and windy conditions; climatological circumstances that have been in place more often than not for the subsequent dozen executions of this event. Let's hope that Sunday's weather is different; let's hope that it resembles the perfect racing conditions that our region's athletes enjoyed last Sunday.
The inaugural Big Pig was won by former Minnesotans Jared Berg and Christie Orris, both of whom have long ago relocated to Colorado...

Race Previewette - It's hard to believe that the GREEN LAKE TRIATHLON is eight years old today. Whoa! It still feels new; has that new race smell, kinda like a car that's just arrived at the showroom, only sweatier.
Staged in a beautiful, bucolic setting on one of Minnesota's gorgeousest lakes and featuring a transition area whose lanes are wide enough to smoothly accommodate those big yellow dump trucks that haul dirt in and out of mines. You know, the kind with tires that are taller than Shaq. The event also features incredibly nummy post-race food. The event totally stands on its own, but if that's not enough for you, do it for the food. And the transition area....

Race Previewette - 1239 women have registered for the 4th annual YWCA Women's Triathlon. A record turnout. More than half of them are tri-virgins. 38 are over 60 years old. That's unbelievably cool! 159 are participating in the Family Competition, i.e. teams consisting of sister/sister or mother/daughter.
This event is about gender empowerment and comraderie, celebrating healthy lifestyles, and important stuff like that. What happens at the front of the race is secondary; a bonus for those of us that like that sort of thing.
MTN likes that sort of thing. A lot. Finds it inspiring. We love and embrace heroes and heroines....
