MAPLE GROVE OLYMPIC - Capping his 2018 season with two major wins and a 2nd, TED TREISE was anxious to launch his 2019 season, his first year as a professional. 

But injuries resulted in DNFs and DNSs, and rehab dominated the four months that comprise the heart of the tri season.

He returned to action last Saturday at Maple Grove Olympic, where he would face 2019 Green Lake Olympic winner KAELEB ROYSTER (IU), and a gaggle of up-and-coming collegiate triathletes.

A loss would be understandable.

But Ted didn't lose. In fact, he threw down the fastest bike split of the day in front of his signature fast run, which built a satisfying 2:14 margin of victory over Royster, the talented Hawkeye.

Ted's time was sweet: 1:56:55.

Treise shared the Top Step with repeat champion BECKY YOUNGBERG, whose time --2:06:06--had been bettered by only one other women's clocking in the 10-year history of this event. That time was 2:05:01, set by Becky in 2018....

 

The victory, her 6th of the season, was the 46th of her multisport career, placed Youngberg second on MInnesota's all-time women's win list behind CATHY YNDESTAD, who has amassed in the neighborhood of 75 triathlon wins. 

Becky's 2019 resume also includes two (Olympic and Sprint) National AG titles.

Second and third in the women's race went to fellow national talents, KORTNEY HAAG (2:10:26) and CHRISTINA ROBERTS (2:11:39). Roberts has podiumed here four times, including a win in 2014. Haag, whose 2019 scorecard features two wins and two 2nds, raced here in 2017, finishing in 2nd place.

Moving up through the ranks was KATIE DEREGNIER, who placed 4th in an Olympic PR, 2:15:39.

Age Group records were set by JOEL WILSON (65-69M - 2:48:39) and TRACY SERREYN (55-59W - 2:26:20).  RESULTS
