Buffalo Triathlon IX - Cathy Yndestad's slumbering mojo woke up this morning in Buffalo. The result was a victory, her 3rd here and 52nd of her illustrious career. She was pushed to a sub-2:10 by Suzie Fox, who set an Olympic-distance PR, 2:11:42. Kortney Haag's hammie was good to go this morning. She placed 3rd.
Six-time Buff Olympic champ Chris Legh had to overtake Devon Palmer, who has this cool Wyatt Earpish mustache and soul patch thing going on, late in the race to keep his Tri Buff win streak alive. Patrick Parish took the amateur crown, keeping him undefeated in four starts this season....

(Photo - One of the dudes in this FB shot is Dylan Gillespie, the guy who won the 7th annual New Bri Tri yesterday.)
Race Coverage - When Forest Lake High School swimmer Dylan Gillespie, then 16, raced at the 2009 New Bri Tri, finishing 22nd. At this morning's NBT the former Papa Murphy's pizza-schlepper WON, beating a gaggle of highly credentialed triathletes, guys like Brendan O'Flanigan, two-time winner here, Dan Arlandson, former pro John "Shelper" Shelp, Chris Sachs, who with his trusty canine Toby, won the 2011 National Skijering Championships, John Heinlein III, Jeff Grebner and the backward-ballcapped Mo Mouw, who missed a few years of racing due to Lyme Disease..
We think that Dylan attends Montana State University. We're not sure. He has been known to hang out in Bozeman, so we made the leap. We know that he has an adoring family, including a sister named Taryn, who possesses supermodel gorgeosity, plays guitar, and rarely watches TV. His margin of victory over Brendan O'Flangan, who has a sore calf and son named Cal who is...

* Since 2008 Kasson's Mario Minelli, who has extremely attractive ankles (photo L), has won three duathlons and has established himself as one of our state's most consistent run-bike-runners. Last Saturday (May 26) Super Mario earned his first career triathlon victory, doing so at the Northstar Tri in Esterville, Iowa. Twas a dominant effort as Minelli covered the sprint distances in 55:46, 5:45 ahead of runner-up Kevin Mitchell. The women's race was won by Kathy Grady of South Dakota. We mention her because we've known her since 2006 and she is one of the coolest people we've ever met. She has awesome cyclist legs..... RESULTS
* 2012 Cinco Du Mayo Short Course winner Erich Heneke of Stewartville placed 3rd overall on May 13 at the Lake MacBride Duathlon in Coralville, Iowa. Ankeny's Jon Estabrook, who like ...

Viva Las Vegas
RACE REPORT - I actually qualified for the 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas last year by winning my age group in New Orleans, but I ended up skipping 70.3 worlds to race Best of the US. That worked out alright, so no real regrets, but I was still somewhat bummed at missing out on Vegas.
So this year as soon as I found out the BOUS race was moving to spring of 2013, I immediately started looking for a 70.3 race to qualify at. I pretty...
