The Tri Season is Upon Us!

Although it may be hard to imagine, triathlon season has arrived! Many of us are eager for more outdoor training and racing. Hang in there, spring is just around the corner!

While YOU may have been training indoors due to snow and ice-covered roads this weekend, Mercury Risers James Galbraith and Sergio Del Piccolo were battling it out at the UBC Olympic Triathlon. A pool maze swim, a windy and cool bike and a sunny, still windy run made for a good early race and both athletes did well. Placing 5th and 6th in their respective age groups made for a satisfying finish.

Coach Rachel was happy to find them on the staggered start course and proud to see them finish strong. A friendly rivalry between these two will continue to fuel the fire as the season builds. Nice work guys.
