Races, Races, Races

I have fallen a bit behind on my race reports over the past month so I figured I would tell you guys what I have been up to.

Since a slightly disappointing race in Edmonton I have had a few more successful races under my belt. I came back home to race locally in Huronia. The race is put on by Multisport Canada and is very well organized and a great venue. I came out of the water in the lead along side a fellow swimmer before gaining a lead on him during the bike. I biked fairly well only being passed by one other person on the bike. We started the run together and pushed each other for the 5km run. Eventually I pulled away from him to take the victory.

Huronia Podium

After Huronia I headed to Ottawa for what I thought was going to be triathlon provincials. The morning of the race they decided the bacteria levels in the water were too high and the race was turned into a duathlon. In doing so my best part of the triathlon was gone, just like that. Regardless of the situation, I raced hard and was fairly happy with the result. After the first run I was trailing the lead pack by a bit and ended up in the first chase pack. I quickly made my way to the front of my pack and got the packed organized. We worked well together and caught the lead pack during the first loop of the two loop bike. In the end I ran myself to a 6th place finish.

Finally, I headed to Bracebridge for another Multisport Canada race. The race was a time trial start which always adds a bit of excitement to racing. I was the first person to start which meant everyone was going to be trying to chase me down. I lead out of the water and never looked back. I finished the race first overall with no complaints. Multisport Canada always puts on great races and Bracebridge did not disappoint.

I would like to say thanks to Multisport Zone, 2XU, Cervelo, and Multisport Canada for all the support they have given me thus far.
