St. Paul's Devon Palmer (photo) collected his 7th career multisport win on Sunday at the 18th annual Pigman Sprint mustachesTriathlon. The bright and amiable first-year pro who has cool hair, the bushy kind that never needs to be combed, was the first of six Minnesota men to crack the overall Top 8. The others were 6 or 7 time Pigman Sprint winner Kevin O'Connor (2nd), eight-time PS champ Brian Bich (4th), 20-year old Kyle Serreyn (6th), John Heinlein III (7th) and three-time Minnesota Junior of the Year Michael Williams (8th).

A great swim followed by his signature supersonic bike split--1:19 faster than O'Connor's 2nd fastest split--delivered Palmer to T2 with a nearly insurmountable lead. Kevin was able to make up 54 seconds on the run (and a faster transition). Still Devon won by a thick margin of 56 seconds....
