Ah what a race. The water was great, Red Rock Company a great tri company, and a great turn-out. Here is a quick summary of the race:
I was in the top 10 out of the water today, just had a few problems on the bike. My stans back tire blew out on the first lap of the mt bike portion (as you can see from my mtn bike time below, it took a few minutes to get out all the stan's goo). Anyway, I decided my back rim is definitely broken for good and is causing flats on rocky sections. I am end the market for some new wheelsets, possibly buying some ZTR's. Doing some research this week.
Here are the results from the race. I also ran into an old cross country buddy, Josh Reddoch.
After the race, headed over to TDF for some bikin' and beer in Tempe. New Belgium Brewery Co. put an amazing, green party on (everything from biodiesel to solar energy was used to power the event). All proceeds to the TDF go toward promoting biking in AZ. Met some cool cats during the event before I left early to come back to Tucson.
