Weekend Newsy Notesy Stuff...

dogChain of Lakes Triathlon - Marcus Stomberg dominated the men's race this morning, his 55:12 just one second off Sam Janicki's 2010 course best. Angie "Hopper" Hop took the women's title in a personal best 1:04:43. Hopper's race story will appear on MTN on Tuesday. RESULTS

UPDATE: COLT's course record holder is actually Matt Payne, who popped a 53:44 in 2009. Sam and Marcus are 2-3 on the race's all-time fastest dudes list. We thank Brad "The Gherkin" Pickle for setting us straight.

Cinco Du Mayo Duathlon - Tri Rochester's Ruth Brennan Morrey and Erich Heneke, who has a totally cute beagle puppie named Allie (photo L), torched some course records at Square Lake this morning. Dan Arlandson collected his 10th career multisport victory. Story and photos will post on Tuesday. RESULTS...

St. Anthony's Race Report - Heading out to St. Petersburg FL (St. Anthony's Triathlon) this past weekend I had some basic goals I was confident I would achieve (qualifying for Hy-Vee with comp entry by placing top 5) and some personal race goals which involved putting myself out there in the race and trying to do something really fast with a stellar field of women to race with. Unfortunately I failed on all fronts due to a mixture of a little bad luck and a huge silly mistake.

Race morning woke up early, ate my standard pre race breakfast and drank a small cup of coffee and headed down to race site. Once I started setting up in transition I realized I had forgotten to pack an extra bottle of water to drink before the race and only had my bike bottle of Accelerade which I wanted...

FALLS DUATHLON Coverage - Those who were returning to this race from last year probably woke up Saturday morning wondering if a year had really gone by or was this the 2011 Falls Duathlon; was this last year just a dream. Call it d

Racing For Steak & Loyalty Rewards....

SteakTAKE THE HILL TRIATHLON Coverage - Paul Mollett's post race celebrations typically feature a thick, rare steak and 8-10 Mickey's Big Mouths. Interestingly, this behavior is not restricted to just his satisfying performances. He celebrates all of his racing efforts, the good, the bad and the unattractive, in this carnivo-alcoholic way. Paul believes that racing is in-and-of-itself a "good thing," even when one's performances suck.

Last Saturday at the Take the Hill Triathlon in soggy, chilly St. Peter, Paul recorded his first career multisport victory, a hard-fought, totally non-sucky result that placed him only nine seconds in front of runner-up Ryan Welle. Exuberant, though he is rarely not exuberant, Paul drove back to Chaska immediately after the race with images of scorched bovine flesh and hops and grain playing on all the screens in his
