Race Coverage

Saturday Tri Results...

CHASE THE POLICE IV - Likely Rookie of the Year nominee Casey Miller picked up his first career win. Despite chilly and super-windy conditions, he turned in the 2nd fastest time in race history. Like Miller, Cheryl Zitur recorded her first career W and set a 45-49W course record in the process. Brian Lavelle told one of the MTN guys that he wanted to get mentioned on the site. He deserves to be the way he's been racing. Today, Brian torched the CPT men's 50-54 CR and looked darn good doing it. He looks a little like actor Tom Skerritt, you know. We don't have any photos of Brian, so we posted one of Skerritt, instead.

Better Than A Race Report

shaneED. In lieu of Tri For a Cause race coverage, we posted this beautiful letter from Shane Johnson on Friday, then the site blew up and this post was lost. We're re-posting here.


I tried putting together something like you asked, however I what I ended up writing is more of a thank you to you and your volunteers. I am sorry to use a clich

Awesome in Annandale...

Heart of the Lakes XXVIII Coverage - The Minnesota Multisport Awards Selection Committee has kept close eyes on the unfolding 2013 season. Many of the award categories are coming into focus and last Sunday's wonderful Heart of the Lakes Triathlon, aka The Minnesota State Triathlon Championships, revealed many of the potential nominees and even a few frontrunners.

Though pros are ineligible for nomination, we would be remiss if we glossed over David Thompson's win in Annandale. Leading from horn to mat, albeit with eventual amateur winner Marcus-Freakin'-Stromberg in his rearview during the early going, David managed to dip under the magical 1:30 (1:29:29) mark in the Long Course event, which at .5-21-5.3 falls within the "International Distance"...

Soccer Girl & Dr. Evil...

kyle and oliviaChaska X - The 10th edition of the Chaska Triathlon featured fallen records, a surprise star, a brief un-forecasted rainstorm and the race director getting his head shaved. The first record to fall was courtesy of defending champ Kyle Serreyn, who lowered Nick Madrinich's 2009 CR from 1:09:17 to 1:06:38. Runner-up Bob Wolter, who placed 3rd here in 2012 and 4th in 2011, pushed Kyle to his stellar performance. (You can read about that cool mano-a-mano battle on Kyle's Blog: LINK.) Wolter also dipped under Madrinich's old mark, posting a 1:07:37.

Jordan Buth rounded out the men's podium, his 3rd place finish (1:12:59) was arguably his best performance to date.

The next record to get shattered was the women's CR. Doing that job was Olivia Bagnall, a collegiate soccer star who was making her tri debut. Posting the splits of an established star...
