Team Skinfit in full-effect this weekend (and Monday)...
Team Skinfit was racing like crazy this weekend up at Sea Otter, at the Boston Marathon, and at collegiate nationals! The short of it is that Skinfit was well represented by James Walsh, Trevor Glavin, Reto Waeffler and the Stanford Triathlon Team. Everyone had solid races and proved that the Skinfit lifestyle is alive and kicking!
Trevor did three races at Sea Otter...the crit, circuit race, and cross-country. The road races were purely training and they proved to be nice and hard, which was what he was looking for. The cross-country race was brutal (38 miles, nearly 3 hrs, and HOT!) He managed 6th place in a tough field. James did the cross-country as well and got 10th. Not bad getting two Skinfit riders in the top 10 at a race as big as Sea Otter. The effects of the hard race are still being felt for sure!!!
Reto knocked out the Boston Marathon. He was on goal pace (2:38) until about mile 21 and had to slow a bit over the final 5 miles but still ran 2:47. Not bad considering it is only his second marathon and he only trained for 12 weeks. Something tells me he will crack 2:40 no problem on the next go =)
The Stanford Triathlon Team was in Texas racing 2009 collegiate nationals. The team placed 9th in the nation! Incredibly, five out of eight athletes that scored in the team competition are in their first triathlon season, which shows a lot of promise for the future. Plus, they all had fun and sported the skinfit aero shirts all weekend from the event, to awards, to the post race grub at Rudy's BBQ!
Here is a link to results.
So, some very solid results over the past few days! There is plenty more racing to come this season so stay tuned.
Keep living the Skinfit lifestyle!
