Shannon Kurek, infamous for shredding the peloton of the undeserving ones, finished first out of a field of 117 in WI this weekend at the USAT Sprint Triathlon National Championships, men's 45-49 age group. Shannon's time would have been good enough for a top 5 finish in a number of younger age groups. Now that I have provided this valuable coverage, maybe he will show some mercy in upcoming Thursday New Albany rides.
Meanwhile, south and east of WI, Beth Hale participated in the Pittsburg Triathlon, finishing first in the sprint distance, women's 50-54 age group. Beth put in an almost 5 minute gap on the 2nd place finisher.
