Xterra West Championships - 2010

Two of the Pikes Peak Triathlon Club Pros headed out to Lake Las Vegas/Henderson NV for the Xterra West Championships on April 25th. Branden Rakita battled through a tough field and challenging course to finish a respectable 10th among the pro men. Mechanicals and flats proved to be the theme of the day among the pro men, with Branden, Josiah Middaugh and others all having issues on the bike. For the women, staying upright seemed to be the challenge as the techical course claimed several victims, including Sara Tarkington and Daz Parker. Tracy Thelen finished 9th in the pro women and has her race report posted on her blog

10th Anniversary Celebration Recap

On Thursday, April 15th, the Pikes Peak Triathlon Club met at Trinity Brewing Co to celebrate 10 years of the PPTC! Yes, the club has been around for 10 years! This celebration was also our monthly membership social (always the 3rd Thursday of the month) so new and current members got to talk about what's going on the in their triathlon world.
Several of the Past Presidents were in attendance and told stories about what it was like when they were in charge. Dana Duthie, the founder of the club, gave a nice history of how the club came to be.

After the stories and some club announcements, we we left to enjoy the food, drink and each other's company. 
Happy 10th Anniversary Pikes Peak Tri Club! We wish the next 10 years are as good or even better than the last!
