Great Weekend of Racing at CBI, Alcatraz, Coldspring, and the Sugar Land Crit

What a great weekend of races. Numerous coached athletes raced the CB&I Sprint Triathlon and did awesome!! Coached athletes also raced at Escape from Alcatraz, the Crawfishman Sprint in Louisiana, the Coldspring Cycling Road Race, and the Sugar Land Criterium Race.

Results from the CB&I Triathlon include:

won the 50-54 women's division. Sheri swam 8:54, biked 20.7 mph, and ran 8:26 pace!
finished third in the 45-49 women's division with a 10:00 swim, 19.6 mph bike and 8:22 run pace... and that's with only getting back to running for the last few weeks!
finished fourth in the competitive 30-34 men's division with a speedy 7:24 swim, 22 mph bike, and 6:55 run pace!! Next up for Jesse is his first 70.3 race at Buffalo Springs.
raced his fourth straight week and finished with a great finishing time! Raul swam 8:47, biked 22.5 mph, and ran 7:25 pace. Next up for Raul is CapTex and Buffalo Springs.
raced well with a 9:19 swim, 21.5 mph bike, and 8:35 run pace. Next up for Jorge is CapTex.
and raced well, but somehow their names are not listed in the results. Kim said she had a challenging swim and a strong bike. Derek raced well and finished his first-ever triathlon! Next up for Kim is the TriGirl sprint race next weekend.
had a great race, knocking over 3 minutes off her time from last year. all had great races as well. First timers , and can all now all be called "triathletes"!!! Dana Hext and Kelly Foust will be racing the CapTex Sprint on Labor Day. was unable to race this weekend after a nasty bike crash on Thursday. He got over 30 stitches in his knee and will be out of commission for a couple of weeks. Heal up soon, Adam!

had another strong performance at the Coldspring Road Race. The course at Coldspring is very hilly, and James was able to get back with the pack after getting separated on a climb that involved a bike crash right in front of him. Luckily, James avoided the crash and bridged the gap back up to the main field. He finished with the pack in an up-hill sprint finish. Next up for James will be the State ITT and possibly Team TT in early August.

raced the Sugar Land Crit on Sunday and had a strong race! Her husband Gary separated his shoulder in a crash in the race prior to hers, so she was a little shaken before the race started. But, she was able to ride strong and even get away in a two-person breakaway toward the end of the race. Unfortunately, she was caught back by the group right before the finish line. Sometimes you just have to Go Big Or Go Home, and that's exactly what Holly did this weekend! Next up is double Crit races this weekend. Best wished to Gary as he recovers from the crash. Gotta love crit races!?!

raced the grueling Escape from Alcatraz triathlon in California. He has raced this race numerous times, and got a personal best time by more than 10 minutes! Dave said the conditions were perfect and the swim was not as challenging at it has been in years' past.

r raced the Crawfishman Sprint Triathlon on Sunday... well, that is until the race got cancelled due to stormy weather! Lisa had a good swim and having an awesome bike split, but was pulled off the course half-way into the race. I guess that makes for a super-fast run split too, right?! ;) Next up for Lisa is the CapTex Olympic Tri.

Congrats athletes!!!
