RochesterFest Preview - Sunday's RochesterFest Olympic Triathlon is the kick-off event of the inaugural Minnesota State Championship Series and will be recognized as the Minnesota State Olympic Championship. Not surprising, the deepest field in the race's four year history will be on hand.

How strong is the field?

A glance at the registration list tells us that RFO has drawn the 2nd best men's field of the year to date. Only the Gear West Duathlon can claim to have pulled more talent. But not that much more...

Spectacular Scenery and Really Big Trophies...

Lake Minnetonka Preview - Ross Rogney is a genuinely nice guy who loves his hometown, where he's lived since birth. He also loves triathlon and triathletes and really tall, heavy trophies. Ross also loves Mexican food, but that has nothing to do with this story.

It is not surprising, therefore, that eight years ago he started a triathlon in his hometown and gave the fastest finishers really tall, heavy trophies.

The hometown in question is pastoral, New Englandy Excelsior, Minnesota, which snuggles the shorelines of three of Lake Minnetonka's most spectacular bays (Gideon, Excelsior and St. Albans). The race is appropriately named the Lake Minnetonka Triathlon and is revered in its region. It always fills early (sign-up by the previous February or you won't get in) and had won the Triathletes Choice Race of the Year award in 2009 and has been a finalist for that accolade more often than not....

For the second year in a row, I kicked off my multisport season with Trinona. Coming into the race I was less confident of my fitness level with a few less miles in my legs and a few more numbers on the bathroom scale than last year at this time. With a stacked field including DKT, Matt Payne, Sam Janicki, Nathan White, and Patrick Davis (all proven speedsters), my plan was to take the swim out hard, try to hang with the other racers, and not be too hard on myself if the pace was too rich for my blood.

Pre-Race: I arrived to a highly organized race site. My pre-race routine went smoothly thanks to nice weather, plenty of space, knowledgeable volunteers, and plentiful port-o-potties (with hand washing stations!). It was fun to catch up with some of the racers I hadn't seen since last season....
