race report


Ironman Lake Placid 2014 / Kevin Barton

Race day, I was excited and nervous. A bit surreal that the day was finally here. Doug and I met up with Jeff and Marc to head down to transition at 5:00, did a final check on the bike, pumped up the tires then drop off the special needs bike and run bags. After waiting at the condo with our teammates, we headed down to the water around 6:15 to begin a long day.

ITU World Championships 2013 / Kyle Medeiros

International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships is by far the biggest race I have competed at. It was a full week of racing and excitement. I have never seen a whole city get shut down for a race. Everywhere you looked, whether it was on the street or in the hotel there were triathletes in their country’s uniforms and banners advertising the race


Ironman World Championships 2013 / Marc Capobianco

It has taken me five years to return to the Big Island. I am beyond excited about being here. So the race on Saturday is just about getting out there and enjoying it. Sure, I certainly want to give it all I got, but there is no pressure, no need to hit a certain time or certain place. There are no expectations except crossing that line on Ali’i.
