Minnesota's pros turned in impressive efforts on Sunday. David Thompson (YndeCam photo L) finished 4th at the New York City Triathlon, and Devon Palmer (Yndecam photo R) was victorious at the silver anniversary edition of the Brewhouse Triathlon in Duluth. DKT had excelled in the Big Apple last year as well, finishing a very satisfying 2nd.
Thompson picked up his 69th career victory two weeks ago at Chisago Half. NYC RESULTS
Palmer covered Brewhouse's new, improved and more challenging course in 1:37:36, which delivered him to the finish line 1:02 ahead of amateur champ Jon Balabuck of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Determined not to be chased down by the fleet-flooted Canuck, Devon turned in one of the finest run splits of his career, a 29-flat for the five miler.
The triumph was career win #10 for the amiable, bushy-headed Palmer....
