Hi everyone. What a great day for racing! It was awesome to see so many of you out there today, especially those of you sporting the DC Tri gear :)

DC Tri Club swept the male sprint overall. Michael Sheehy got 2nd overall.
Great job everyone! I had pretty much the opposite type of race day, so it's good to see people crushing the course and making up for me!
Were you the one changing a flat at the start of the Whitehurst freeway on the 1st loop of the Olympic? I called out to a guy in a DCTri kit to see if he was okay.
Yep, that was me. Thanks for checking! Quite a few people offered their backup flat kit, but didn't want to slow anyone down and mostly didn't want to potentially cause them even bigger issues if they flatted too.
Some other medalists, or impressive performances, by clubbers, or those affiliated with DCT. Tallies are unofficial, and incomplete:
Olwen Huxley, 1st, OA, Sprint
Francesca Di Silvio, 2nd, OA, Sprint
