DC Triathlon Club

Jason Davidson

January, 2019

I spent my teenage years as a competitive track and road cyclist, culminating in a qualification for the 1992 U.S. Olympic Cycling Trials. After a long hiatus from endurance sport while earning a Ph.D. and starting an academic career, I ran my first marathon and competed in my first sprint triathlon as an adult in 2009. Triathlon has been an important part of my life ever since. Since 2010 I have been racing with the Elite Squad of another local team but in talking to Bryan Frank and Liz Baugher I have been impressed with the support DC Tri Club provides for its Elite Team. I am proud to join the team for the 2019 season.
