Yet another busy weekend of racing for Human Powered Racing.
This past weekend 6 athletes (and coach) made the trek down to Lake Stevens, Washington for a fantastic 70.3 event. Adrian Walton, Heather Whittall, Brian Strilesky, Chad Dalrymple and Jodi Mucha all put in fantastic efforts with Adrian pulling off a podium finish in the men’s 40-44 age category and earning a trip the World Championship in Vegas. Also not to be missed was the down to the wire battle between Fast Couple Heather and Brian who were racing for bragging rights after a couple extremely close finishes this past summer. Heather managed to hang on and got to the finish line first (JUST), but due to the stagger, Brian took the fastest time. It was super fun to watch. Almost as good as “Crowie” Alexander running away from fellow Aussie Luke Bell with only a few miles to go. For all the results check out the Lake Stevens 70.3 website.
Meanwhile, across the country at our Olympic and Sprint Distance National Championship in Toronto, Nancy Carleton took her 3rd straight age group title in the women’s sprint triathlon. David Carleton was “enjoying” the Ontario heat as well with a top 20 placing in the Olympic distance event.
Congrats to everyone on a fantastic weekend. Next up, the SRI and Metchosin Triathlon
