The events keep on rolling for Human Powered Racing.
This past weekend we had the annual 90/90/90 workout on Saturday. This is one of the biggest workouts of the year for those prepping for an Ironman. The workout consists of a 90 minute run followed by a 90 minute ride and then another 90 minute run. Once again we used Greg Mckay’s house as home base which meant that each run ended with a nice little run up Sea Ridge Drive.
On Sunday, Human Powered Racing put on the annual Tri of Compassion. This race is a fundraiser for the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre. This year the race raised over $21,000. The race also saw some great performances by Human Powered Racing athletes. Ivor John won the men’s race (the day after the 90/90/90 no less) in a time just over 1:00. Nancy Carleton placed 2nd overall and won her age group. David Carleton and Justin Martin both won their age groups as well. The youth race saw a number of Human Powered Racing youth have fantastic races as well with Jack Boden, Carter Robertson, Carl Philip Leipoldt and Annalise Branter winning their age groups. You can find the full results on the Tri of Compassion Website
Canada Day saw 11 Human Powered Racing athletes (and alumni) head over to Port Angeles for the annual Hurricane Ridge Ride. This years ride saw brilliant blue skies and warm temperatures for the 100 or so riders that made the trek. Everyone did fantastic and we had the opportunity to get some great shots at the top. This was our version of the Ride to the Sun.
