LAKE GENEVA ESCAPE TRI - MTN congratulates JORDAN ROBY and CHRISTINA ROBERTS on their amateur victories yesterday at Lake Geneva Escape. For Jordan, who will once again receive serious consideration for a Most Improved nomination, the win was his third of the season and fifth of his career, and it required that he post the fastest amateur men's run split of the day.

Roby's margin of victory over runner-up Mark Caballero of Milwaukee was 57-seconds.

Christina's win was a convincing one, her margin over 2nd place Kelli Benton of Tulsa, Oklahoma was 5:36. The victory was Roberts' sixth in nine starts this season and 18th of her multisport career. It's safe to say that she is one of the two-or-three frontrunners for 2017 Female Triathlete of the Year.

The wins earn Jordan and Christina free entries into next year's Escape From Alcatraz, at race at which Roberts excelled in 2014, when she placed 6th in the women's amateur competition.  RESULTS

 

CLC DAVID ROTBERG MEMORIAL DUATHLON - The fourth edition of this season-concluding event was won for the second consecutive year by JASON TOTH, who covered the unique 20-mile-4-mile-7-mile bike-run-bike in 1:32:32, which lowered his 2016 course best by 3:05. The win was Toth's 3rd in six starts this season. The 40-year-old from Eagan will be part of this year's Master of the Year discussion which is more  competitive than ever now that it includes MATTHEW PAYNE, winner of more MMAs than any other Minnesota male, and perennial Team Minnesota member BROOKS GROSSINGER....

 

Jason was joined in the Winners Circle by his wife KIERANN, whose 1:47:49 was the second fastest women's time in the event's four-year history behind SUZIE FOX's 1:46:50, posted in 2015, the year Fox won eleven multis and was named MInnesota Triathlete of the Year. Toth, pronounced "Towth," was also victorious at Hoot Lake and has not missed the podium in five starts this season.

Placing 2nd in the women's race was Fergus Falls' JOELLEN KOHLMAN-PETRICK, 40, whose 2017 resume features a victory at Average Joe, and 2nds at Hoot Lake, Young Life Olympic and yesterday's CLC Du. 

This year's event had 71 participants. RESULTS
