A New Star is Born...

Chain of Lakes Tri LogoGOPHER PULLS UPSET AT COLT...University of Minnesota triathlete Sam Janicki and 2009 TriMinnesota Series women's champ Brooke Larsen shared the Winners Circle at the the 8th annual Chain of Lakes Triathlon today. Cloudy, cool (4os) and extremely windy conditions prevailed, making Janicki's 55:11 ever more impressive. Only Matt Payne (2009) has gone faster on this sprint course. The 24-year-old, whose 2009 performances did little to portend his emergence, nor did his solid but unspectacular effort in Lubbock, TX at Collegiate Nationals two weeks ago, out-raced pre-race favorite Steve Sander in every discipline, beating the amiable smooth-headed Sander, who took 2nd, by 2:16. A fine 58:57 landed Ross Weinzierl on the final step of the podium.

Larsen's win, the 3rd of her young--this is her 3rd season--multi career, was convincing. Her margin of victory over runner-up Kadie Hokanson was 2:05. RESULTS
