TC athletes were at it again last weekend with a great showing at the Killer 3 Mountain Bike Race in Sumter, SC. This fun and flowy course was perfect for the Southern Classic Season opener - an excellent place to put all of that winter training to the test. Bonnie Kleffman saw the top of the podium in the women's Pro/Cat 1 category, despite tough competition in the first race of the season.
Congratulations to Monica Kruckow for rocking the podium at the Great Floridian Ultra Distance Triathlon! Despite the heat, humidity, wind and hills, she still finished in 14:17:12, for a 2nd place finish in her age group and 11th place female overall. Like a true TotalCyclist athlete, she was still smiling at the end. Way to go!
The TotalCylcist MTB team was at it again this weekend with a great showing at the Winter Short Track Series on Sunday. The day kicked off with Jamie Turski kicking it in the Sport Men's category for a hard fought 2nd place finish! As if that wasn't enough, Jamie decided to get another 10 laps in by jumping into the single speed race later in the day. Despite fatigue, he pulled out a 6th place finish in a stacked field! Way to go Jamie!
Congratulations to TotalCyclist athlete Andy Udinsky for his 6th place finish in the Cat 3-4 Race of the FSCJ Winter Training Crit in Georgia. Great job Andy!
Andrea Hilderbrand has been tearing up the trail running races in the first weeks of 2013. Check out her results so far:
