08/12/07 Triathlons

We had several Blue Sky Velo triathletes tearing it up this past weekend. There were two big races, 5430 Long Course (1/2 Ironman distance) and The Great Colorado Triathlon (Olympic distance).

Here are those results:

5430 Long Course

Leann McAllister – 5th in 40-44 women (awesome result!!)
Wayne McAllister – 28th 40-44 men

Great Colorado Triathlon

Maggi Kelly – 2nd in 40-44 women
Beth Coppock – 4th in 40-44 women
Eric Coppock – 1st in 40-44 men (we are hoping to have him join us next year)
Kelly Dykema – 2nd in 45-49 women

The Great Colorado Tri also featured the Jr. National Championship after the adult race. These were kids from the U.S. as well as Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and more. It was very exciting watching how fit these kids were and that the future of triathlons is in their hands. In addition, there was a Pro/Elite race which started at about 12:00 (very hot for those athletes) and included some top elite racers who weren’t out racing the 5430. It was a great spectator course in that we did 2 loops of 750 meters in the swim, 6 loops on the bike and 2 loops on the run. I have attached some photos from that race.
