Pre-Preview - Looking for a great racing experience this weekend? Let us recommend the totally cool Hudson, Wisconsin-based St. Croix Valley Triathlons. Yes, there are still slots available. RACE WEBSITE.
These nine (Olympic on Sunday) and 10-year old (sprint on Saturday) events feature a scenic venue, large and enthusiastic crowds of spectators and some of the best post-race eating you'll find anywhere. (Insert yummy sounds here.) The SCVT's Luau, featuring roast pig, is now legendary. And oh so yummilicious! Approximately 600 participants are anticipated for sprint; and 200 for the Olympic. Will you be among them?...

Race Preview - The Brainerd Lakes area is totally cool. Very lakey and verdant with plenty of fast food restaurants and places to get ice cream.
But when you think of the BLA--cool acronym for Brainerd Lakes Area--two things immediately come to mind...
An Instant Classic?

Maple Grove Triathlon Preview - The Midwest Multisport Series is arguably the most competitive amateur tri series in the US. Few of Minnesota's sixty-or-so non-MMS multis boast such incredibly deep fields, though Buffalo Olympic, Chisago and Minneman come pretty darn close....

The 5th annual St. Paul Triathlons are being contested today. Last night we got our first peek at the registration list. We immediately challenged Zippy the Gibbon (photo) to drop what he was doing--throwing his poop at passing cars--and predict the Top 5 male and female finishers in the Olympic-distance race and the podium places in the sprint. Here are his picks:
Olympic Men - 1. David Holden (WI), 2. Brent Sinn (WI), 3. Anton Pshon, 4. Mike Fretland (ND), 5. Carl Unger...

Race Preview - In an attempt to give MTN's readership a break from the relentless onslaught of goofy prose, we're going to keep this preview short and sweet. We predict that records will fall like one-legged 4.0-blowing inebriates with Teflon shoes on a glazed hillside at Saturday's Young Life Olympic Triathlon. Defending champ Steve Sander will push Sam Janicki to a sub-2-hr CR, which will be the first time that has been done here. Nevis' David Lewis will..

Pigman Preview - "Pigman" is a perfect name. For an Iowa-based race, that is.
'Cuz there are more pigs in Iowa than people. (Let's hope they--the pigs--don't revolve. Iowans--the people--wouldn't stand a chance!)
Sadly, Iowa is one of the few states that have a perfectly named triathlon...
