Race results

Champion of the ParkRun, First Time Ironmen, and More!

November 6

This past weekend saw three squad members continuing their season with some very different goals and ends of the spectrum of sport. But it doesn't take away the production and process of completing a race to the best of your ability!

ParkRun New Forest

Jappas Du Preez took part in the local New Forest ParkRun in the UK and even after finishing Kona, having a couple weeks of little to no training, came out and produced the fastest run split of the day and took the top step! Fitness might be lower now, but with such a deep base, the form stays around and you can still produce some nice speed in the legs when needed! Really well done, Jappas!

Ironman Florida

Erick Meier and Gustavo Beathyate traveled from Lima, Peru to Haines City, Florida to complete their first ever long-course races this past weekend at Ironman Florida! After all the blah-blah about needing to change course, introducing a hillier and harder course that had already crushed many athletes mental capacities, Erick and Gustavo just got on with business to take care of the things they could control. The swim course had quite a bit of traffic and turns to navigate which both guys commented on, but both ended up in the front of their AG's out of the water. Onto the bike, the whole goal for the day was patience and nutrition. This was our first go at nutrition in a race, and it seems both Men did what they needed to. Off the bike and onto the run, again, patience! It was evident that many athletes rode too hard and Erick and Gustavo started moving up through the field with their steady and negative split runs. At the finish line, both finished in the top-25% of their AG! So very proud of these guys in their first long-distance race, and how disciplined they were to race their own race! Now we focus on relaxing a bit, and looking ahead to the future! Perhaps coach investigates why both Erick and Gustavo seemed to have decided to stop for a sit down meal in their respective transitions!

Toma Cycle Cup

Sascha Moryson got back to racing this weekend at the Toma Cycling Cup Cross-Country series in the Netherlands. Being his first race back in the series, he was forced to start in the back of the field. But showing great fitness, Sascha moved up all the way to 4th place at one point before settling for 5th at the end. An amazing production on the day, producing 30watts more than 2 years ago at the same series (328w) for the race. We are on a good way! Keep it up Sascha! The top step is calling.
