PowerTap Weekend Box Report: June 28 - June 29
Six of our athletes raced this weekend and all six finished in the top three! Not only that, but we saw four 1st place finishes as well.
Ironman Coeur D'Alene
1st: Heather Wurtele
3rd: Jess Smith
Heather Wurtele's 5:22:19 bike split was the fastest of the day, followed by Jess Smith's bike effort. We take it as a personal compliment that our athletes locked down the one-two bike splits!
1st: Melanie McQuaid
Fresh off her Boise 0=70.3 win, Melanie dominated the Pro Chase at the Saskatoon 5150. As someone who dominates in road triathlons and XTERRAs alike, it's no surprise that she broke the tape this weekend.
1st: Matt Lieto
Oregon-based triathlete, Matt Lieto, stayed local this weekend to race in the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival in adjacent Sunriver. He walked away with his 4th Pacific Crest title and course record of 4:05:39.
1st: Ivan Raña
Spaniard, Ivan Raña, crossed the finish line with a race-winning 7:48:43--aka: the second-fastest Ironman time ever!
Buffalo Springs 70.3
3rd: Jesse Thomas
After dominating at Mont Tremblant last weekend Jesse headed to Texas in the hopes of gathering as many points as possible. He finished in 4:02:54 thanks to his race-best half-marathon of 1:20:12.
Congrats to all of you!
