Race Previews

More Previewettes of Weekend Triathlons...

buzzlogoBuzz Ryan Sprint II - The 2nd edition of this event will be staged at Island Lake north of Duluth tomorrow. It will be held simultaneously with the Duluth Triathlon, a groovy 70.3 experience, which is also celebrating its second anniversary. The events were contested on separate dates in 2012.

Because the Buzzy Sprint and the Duluth Half are produced by the same folks that have given you the iconic Brewhouse Tri for the last gazillion years, you can be assured that the events will be totally good....

Good Vibe...

logoHOLT Preview - Minnesota triathletes are "Come Early, Stay Late-ers." Historically, they seem to spend more time chatting and laughing in the transition area before an event than they will spend on the race course. Then they hang-out for a similar amount of time afterwards. It's a totally cool deal.

This phenomenon is especially apparent at the Heart of the Lakes Triathlon, where the "Come Early, Stay Late-ers" come even earlier and stay even later. Yes, indeed, there is something special about this event that bills itself,...

Saturday Previewettes...

kyleChaska - The Chaska River City Days Triathlon is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Sunday. And you're invited. This event features small town charm and a picturesque and challenging bike route. We wholeheartedly recommend this event. Good news. You can still get in. WEBSITE

Favored to win, as he did in 2012, is Kyle Serreyn, who is on the comeback trail, and according to him that road doesn't start in Munchkin Land. It starts in Chaska on Saturday. Check out his latest Blog post - LINK.

Also, we're picking Tracy Serreyn, Kyle's mom who won here in 2011, to join her son in the Winner's Circle. How cool would that be? (Actually, Tracy may choose to spectate. ALSO: We just learned that Brooke (Larsen) Plotz, two-time winner of the Tri Minnesota Series, has just enrolled, making her the current women's favorite. A win would be the 8th of her young career.)

Tri For a Cure - The 3rd edition of this big-hearted event will be Saturday at Serpent Lake in Crosby. Scenic courses, plentiful food and amenities and that cool Team thing they got going make this race special. Hey, you don't need to be a part of a team to participate. We encourage you to...

Doozies....

logoGraniteman - Clearwater Preview - The MTN Guys enjoy making predictions. Typically, we predict winners and overall podium finishers. When we glanced at the G-Man - Clearwater start list, though, we got totally excited about the AG battles, and there are going to be some doozies.

So, we are going to bypass the overall predictions, i.e. we are not going to reveal that we think that Dennis Dane and Jamie Heying will win, and predict instead the winners of the non-open-class Age Groups. If 50% of our picks are correct, we are going to celebrate with a two liter bottle of Diet Pepsi and a Hawaiian pizza from Red's Savoy. If we get less than 50% right, we'll get some stuff from Leann Chin.

Win win....
