Congrats to everyone who raced. Additional photos can be found on Facebook here for Saturday's sprint tris and here for Sunday's olympic tri.

Those who attended the race also heard that Buttar is officially renaming the upcoming September Mango Tri Festival as the Roy McConnell Mango Tri Festival. WOOHOO!! There will be special activities that weekend to remember our beloved teammate Roy. And best of all, this is NOT just a one time thing. The race will retain the name and be held in Roy's honor from here on out. So, get ready to race again next month for Roy!!!
