Race Coverage

Bontrager and Kent....


TRI U MAH – A record (we think?) 213 athletes completed the 90-minute Tri U Mah, which celebrated it's 16th anniversary on February 8-9....

The event happend at The U's state-of-the-art RecWell Center, and consisted of 30-minute pool, trainer and treadmill segments separated by five-minute transition intervals. Athletes were ranked by the total mileage they covered.


2019 Team Minnesota member MICHAEL WEISSENBORN was gunning for his fourth Tri UMah victory, but TIM BONTRAGER got in the way. As he had done at Minneapolis Sprint last July, Tim managed to narrowly outsplit eventual runner-up Weissenborn in each phase. His final mileage total was 19.28. We'd love to see how that performance stacks up against the efforts posted by former tri-pro DEVON PALMER, who raced here more than a dozen years ago.


Weissenborn's total output was 18.79 miles, which was only .04 (70.4 yards) off his 2019 personal best.

The men's podium was rounded out by SCOTT HANSON (17.98 miles).

The absence of two-time Tri U Mah winner / 2019 outdoor tri Rookie of the Year PAIG SCHULZ cleared the way for a decisive victory by tri/du veteran-turned-body-builder TRACIE KENT (photo), who thinks Keto recipes are nummy. She amassed 16.05 miles, putting her .67/mile ahead of second place DIANE KRUSE, and .71/mile in front of bronze medalist KAITLIN PRUSAK.
