A pro since 2013, Ruther is a two-time US Elite Duathlete of the Year. Her career, which began in earnest in 2012, features 31 starts, with 15 victories and eight other podiums.

The MTN Guys couldn't be happier for HEATHER LENDWAY.
Last Sunday we watched her do what few, if any, female triathletes can do: ride with Sarah Haskins and Alecia Kaye, arguably the two premier non-drafting short course (sprint and Olympic) athletes in the world.

On Sunday at the 33rd edition of the prestigious St. Anthony's Triathlon in sunny, toasty St. Petersburg, Florida, Haskins and Kaye were 2:16 and 2:22 ahead of the field, one that featured true stars like Lauren Goss and Mirinda Carfrae, as well as underrated elites Kaitlin Donner and Jennifer Spieldenner, when they dismounted.
But the superstars could not drop the newly engaged (photo L - HL designed her own ring, which is kinda blingy and features an awesome black diamond!) Lendway who, after a preme-earning swim (19:18), ...
