Wasa Triathlon... keep the tradition going

Congrats to all those who participated in this weekend's Wasa triathlon.

In the relay event, Jon Bird set the pace in the swim before handing off to Alex who rode a stupid fast 40k time trial. Alex handed off to Darcy Bell (Speed Theory Manager) who ran it in for the overall win.

The individual triathlon (1.5km swim, 40k bike and 10k run) was as always a strongly contested event on the new course (maybe the swim was a little short).

Cat Brown won the women's overall overall. Tanya was a close second. Kelly-Lynn O'Toole (soon to be Marcotte) was 9th overall. Former Speed Theory team member Jen Alexander was 8th.

In the men's race, Speed Theory employee Jon Bird was 3rd overall. Steller performances from Frank (I don't swim) Woolstencroft, Mike Young, Mike H, Mike C and Dan were noted. Bart was out there coaching his Kronos crew (closely related to Speed Theory). I apologize for those Speed Thoery members whom I might have missed.

The "Team Contest" composed of the top three men and two women's times was also won by Speed Theory team members. In doing so, they won and donated another $200 to the Jason Lapierre Scholarship at the UofC. GOOD WORK!!!!

Alex definitely threw everyone off on the bike...he was 2 minutes ahead of the winner when I saw him on the course.

This is the 1st time I've done this course and it was AWESOME! Great work to all ST who raced yesterday.

Get well and recover soon, Trev and Kyle. Looking forward to seeing you guys in action.

Here's the link to the results if Charlie hasn't updated his site...
