The Boys Are Back in Town

It's fun to prognosticate. And it's fun to be right.

But it's even more fun to be wrong!

Huh?

Being wrong typically demonstrates that the status quo is being shaken up. This is good for the sport and the Minnesota scene. A recent example of our being blissfully wrong was when we predicted that Steve Sander would win the Chain of Lakes Triathlon. Steve had a good race but was beaten by upstart Sam Janicki, a youngster whose previous results were sub-stellar. But young guys (and gals) sometimes make quantum improvements. Sam sure did.

Faribault Family Fun Triathlon Stuff...

Is it pronounced "Fair-Rib-Bow?" Or "Fair-Rib-Balt?" Never figured that one out.

Whether you pronounce it "Frenchly" or "Anglicany," Faribault, Minnesota, is a totally cool town with lots of great stuff to see, do and consume.

It is also the home of the Faribault Family Fun Triathlon, an event that is celebrating it's 3rd anniversary on Saturday, May 22. What do we know about this event? Only what we can learn from visiting it's webpage and the fact that it's in a totally cool town, one that is well worth visiting. Our point is this, check out the race, then check out the town. Our guess is that you'll be glad you did.

State of the Art!

Lakes to Pines Recap

By Brian Maas, Tundra Transition Zone

MTN - Thanks for giving the previously 'unknown' Park Rapids "Lakes to Pines" triathlon a little love this year. It is a well run, and extremely friendly, event. I returned back for my 3rd time in 2010. They had a record 63 individuals this year.

Awesome in Oakdale

Records are doomed on days like this. The cool temps and unkind winds that greeted the participants of every outdoor multi staged thus far this season were replaced by perfect conditions. Add to this the fact that many of today's Oakdale Duathlon's 500-plus participants brought hunger and enthusiasm to the start line. Those who also brought elite credentials (both frontrunners and AGers), and there was no shortage of these folks, were going to rock!
