(Facebook photo - A Top 10 finisher at Lake Minnetonka last month, Jesse Kling is enjoying a great tri season. He placed 3rd overall at Chaska this morning.)
Chaska Tri XIII - Nick Madrinich is probably the fastest Serbian/Swedish male triathlete in all of Carver County! This morning he won his hometown race--the Chaska River City Days Tri--for the 3rd consecutive year. Additionally, he managed to lower Chris Leiferman's 2008 course record by 12 seconds.
The women's race was a tight battle between Tracy Serreyn and Jamie Blumentritt, with Serreyn prevailing by 21 seconds.
Three divisional course records set smithereenisized by Tom Pettit, 42, who finished 2nd overall, Michael Danielson, 47, who lowered his own previous 45-49M's best, and Nick Vanduzee, 67, who also owns this event's 60-64M CR.....

Race Report - Falling asleep this last Friday night was tough. As I lay in bed I was just too excited for Lifetime the next morning. I've been looking forward to this race since last July when I was 6th. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of really great races in Minnesota with beautiful courses, and friendly volunteers and Kevin O'Connor's hot dogs afterwards.

Sure, there was some light chop and noticeable surface current on Lake Nokomis.
