Pete's Climb to the Pass...

routeLast Friday we received a cool slice of Heideggarian Existentialism from Litchfield triathlete Pete Royer. Have you ever heard Stephen Stills' "Thoroughfare Gap," Pete? If not, here's the LINK.

Hey MTN Guys,

I thought you might be interested in my little bike ride I did last summer. I didnt do as many tri's as I did Ride The Rockies in June. We rode 542 miles in a week thru and over the Rocky Mountains.

I attached two of our more epic days ride profiles....

Andale! Andale! Arriba! Arriba! Yii-hah! Animated cartoon mouse Speedy Gonzalez would love the courses nominated for the best triathlon run course in Minnesota. Several of them are ridiculously fast throughout. The others have ridiculously fast finishing stretches. I have a feeling that Speedy Gonzalez would be impressed with the speed of the racers if he was a spectator at these races and you would likely hear him utter one of his favorite sayings, especially when Patrick Parish, Jenny Wilcox or Dan Hedgecock whistled by: Holy frijoles! That thing runs faster than me!...

Parish & Wilcox Honored...


(Photos L- R - Jenny Wilcox was just named 2010 USAT Duathlete of the Year Honorable Mention. Patrick Parish and Cindi Bannink are HM Athletes of the Year. Runner-up for Minnesota Rookie of the Year in 2001, Cindi relocated to Madison, Wisconsin in 2003 and has been her new state's premier multisportswoman ever since.)
