Welland Sprint & Super Sprint Triathlons & Relay
Six (6) individual events and one (1) relay team and… everyone… I mean everyone podium’d! Wow! Click on the buttons to see everyone’s overall times and split times, and the individual buttons to see year over year comparisons. Juan knocked it out of the park with a 6min P.B. compared to last year… 6mins… awesome, and with that he took 2nd in the U19 Mens category and was 3rd Male Overall. Patricia set a 3min P.B. compared to last year… again… awesome. Patricia took 2nd place in the W50-59, Andres took 3rd in the M40-49, Gabe took 3rd place in the U19 Mens category and Carolina took 2nd in W40-49. As for Tom… Tom whose arm had to be twisted into doing a Super Sprint Tri Relay last year, was open to doing the Super Sprint this year and was rewarded with 1st place in his category M60-69. Finally, our family relay team in the Sprint distance triathlon went from initially being recorded as a DNF, then moved up to 3rd and finally with a photo to validate our finishing time, we were moved up to 1st. Next year this is gonna be tough to beat, but we have a year to put in the training to have everyone set course P.B.s. Well done team! For those not going to Gatineau, we will see you at Kelso first and then at Caledon second.
Kelso Mountain Bike (MTB) Series
The season opened last night with sunny but cool conditions. Overall the trails were dry and compact with only a few damp spots. New this year… the Novice course will have ‘short cuts’ allowing the Novice race to truly be Novice. Technical sections that Sport & Expert levels can ride will be skipped by the Novices, and the opportunity is to split the field on the descents allowing the Novices to ride at their pace. With these new aspects to the series implemented, the race last night felt thinned out without as much passing required. As for TOETT athletes.. only a handful were on hand to start the season as many are skipping the early races to prep for a 2020 Worlds qualifying event in early July; we look forward to having the entire team on hand mid to late season.
