We have several people heading down to North Carolina this weekend to compete in Du Worlds.

Hillary Cairns
Julia Nagy
Michelle Harburg

... I know there are others. If you know someone else going, let us know.

Good luck!

Mike Coffman is there too. His goal is to not be last!

Mike Coffman rides at about 30 mph. If he's last then there are a lot of people out there on the juice :)

Chuck Harney is down here too. And of course me - my role is to make sure that no one else has to come in last.

Also have our race sherpa's Lawrence and Ty down here to make sure that we are well taken care of throughout the weekend.

This weekend's race went really well for DC Tri! At the top of their AGs in an international field, Matias Palavecino and Hilary Cairns took 4th and Julia Nagy took 6th!

We also had standout performances by Chuck Harney, Jordan Snyder, Mike Coffman, Ryan Strohl, Michelle Buckley and Michelle Harburg.

I think I got everyone but definitely post if I missed anyone.

Awesome job to everyone just to qualify but really incredible to have such spectacular results.

In the elite category, Jarrod Shoemaker also kicked it into gear after a bike crash to win in a sprint to the line with a final 5k split of 13:52. Very exciting -- Check it out Here »

Thanks to everyone in DC Tri for your support and congrats to all of the other DC Tri competitors. I didn't get to see everyone during the race but it was great to see a bunch of familiar faces during the run. Also great to hear a cheer as I was getting passed (special thanks to Ryan for that - he was flying!).

I hope to see a lot of DC Tri folks at Duathlon Nationals again next spring - it's in Richmond April 24 and 25. And if you need more incentive to go to Nationals, worlds is in Edinburgh next September.

Hey, You can add a gold in the 55 - 59 yr Mens' as I benefitted from the wet roads being an old bike racer;) William Martin from Gaithersburg MD and part-time DC tri club guy.

Thanks,

Well, it's my 6th WC, but maybe the best as I am coming off a 7 year break. It officially marks the end of the comeback, since, I guess I am back.
