Trinona Course Record


I was happy to do a local race this weekend.  This was the second annual Trinona triathlon in Winona, MN.  The race is only a 2 hour and 20 min drive from my house, which is much easier than flying.  The highlights of the race where swimming in my Blue Seventy Axis wetsuit and climbing the bluff on the bike course.  My wetsuit fits perfect and keeps me high in the water.  The shoulders have plenty of stretch; it doesn't effect my swim stroke at all.  There was a timed challenge to see who come climb the mile long bluff the fastest.  I went 5:21.  I don't know if that's good enough for the jersey yet.  Overall, I won the race in 1:50:03 (unofficial).  Matt Payne and Alex Hooke were second and third.  Julie Hull should have won for the women.

That's it for now.  I need to check out of the hotel and get to the awards ceremony.

  2. Nice job David. Did my first tri in the Axis WetSuit yesterday at the Liberty 1/2 and I concur with you on the comments about the suit. I'll never make it move as fast as you do though, but I'll work on it!
