Race Previews

North Mankato Stuff...

The 13th edition of the North Mankato Triathlon will be staged on Sunday. Like Saturday's Croixathlon, it will be conscientiously produced by people who still swimexude "Minnesota Niceness." If you're not registered for an event this weekend, we strongly recommend either of these races. We would also recommend the Lake Waconia Triathlon, of course, but it has been full for some time.

A solid field will be on hand for this year's NMT. Here are our podium pics:

MEN - 1. Sam Janicki - A virtual shoo-in for a Rookie of the Year nomination, Sam has one Tri Minnesota Series win (COLT) and a 2nd (Albert Lea) already this season. 2. Todd Landgraff - The defending champ is not currently registered but we suspect that he'll race on Sunday. As his podium finish at Liberty Half demonstrates, he's taken his game to a new level in 2010. 3. Jesse Nelson - Stripped of a course ....

logorecord at RochesterFest Sprint last weekend (equipment infraction), Nelson will aggressively seek redemption on Sunday. He'll finish no lower than 3rd.
