Wow, I think cheering at a tri maybe nearly as much fun as racing one!

We had five club members in the Baldwin Park Sprint Tri today, two doing their first-ever tri. This year the race started a half hour earlier (7am vs. 7:30am) to help beat the heat. The water was nice and calm. The bike course was great for spectating because the athletes went by 5(!) times. And the run ended with a long finishing chute making for some exciting finishes.

Here are a few photos from the race. I'll put together a slideshow with more once I get them from others.

And here's how our team members fared:

Erik H - 1:10:53, 3/9 M25-29. First open water swim tri!
Will - 1:11:29, 2/34 M Novice. First tri!
Julie - 1:27:14, 3/6 F20-24. YAY, Buttar found her results!
Kerrie - 1:38:37, 6/14 F Novice. First tri!
Roy - 1:09:15, 1/1 M Relay. Back racing after a bike crash last month!

Full race results can be found here. Way to go, team!
