Race Previews

It Had To Be Trinona...

trinonaTrinona Preview - Bill and Julie met almost thirty years ago. Students at Winona State University, they met at a party and passed a few joints and took a few bong hits. He also slammed several beers; she drank a whole bottle of Boone's Farm Tickle Pink. Then they....you know...

And they fell in love.

Bill and Julie got married shortly after Bill completed his MS in businessy stuff. They purchased a house in St. Paul and a few years later, Julie, who was now a pro nurse, got preggers with the first of their many children. ...

Ivy Covered Triathlon...

manitouManitou Preview - Gosh, there's a lot going on on the Minnesota tri scene this weekend. There are two great events that are relatively young, Liberty on Saturday and Trinona on Sunday.

And there is another race, one with a storied history dating back to the Bush era. Not that Bush, his dad. The one who was the husband of the lady who looks like George Washington; not her son.

Yup, the Manitou Triathlon will be celebrating its 22nd birthday on Sunday at White Bear Lake's beautiful Ramsey County Beach. The lake itself has had shrinkage problems for the last several years but has begun a remarkable recovery. Gee, what a gorgeous body of water...

New Bri Tri Stuff...

guys(Totally cool Minnefota Moments Photo - Don't you love that guy's shorts!)

New Bri Tri Preview - We don't expect records to fall at the 6th annual New Bri Tri on Saturday, but we do predict that it will be a super event, weather permitting.

Why?

Because it was a super event last year. And the year before that. And the year before that. Also, a glance at the start list suggests that the race will reach its 500-participant ceiling and a significant percent of the field are recidivists. Folks don't return to an event year after year if it sucks....

Buff Stuff...

logoBuffalo Triathlon Preview - This great event, which will celebrate its 8th anniversary on Sunday, has the distinction of being the largest (1500 participants) race in the Tri Minnesota Series.

It is also the most competitive race in the series. And this year's Buffalo Olympic Tri field, despite the absence of the 2010 and 2009 women's champs (Cathy Yndestad and Kortney Haag), both of whom are injured, and the fact that it shares its date with Pigman Sprint, where last year's Tri Buff men's winner (Patrick Parish) will be racing, will be as stout as ever....

A Tradition of Excellence...
