Great Showing at Rose City Triathlon

9.10 We had a great turn out at the Rose City triathlon with ten athletes racing. It was also our first time putting together a booth. I think it turned out really well. 

Coach and newly pro triathlete Garrett Mayeaux was 2nd overall and first out of the water.
Kevin Roberts and Lance Vernon were both 5th age group.
Kathy Roberts out of Rockwall was 4th age group.
Laura Whitfield was 10th age group but about 11 min faster than her last Triathlon that was shorter. She is also one of our coached runners cross training with swim and bike but she's been leaning to the triathlon side.
Julie Blount was 5th age group. She rode on her mountain bike. She's our marathoner in training. She only did this for fun.
June Sober finished 3rd!!
Bill Hebb had a great race and finished 3rd, especially after traveling all summer.
Sherril Wade and Dana Dudley finished 2nd and 3rd in the same age group. Sherril was two minutes faster this year and first time to podium at RCT!

Garrett Qualifies for Pro Card and Spencer and Hayden Sweep 1-2 at Brookhill Meet

9/1/17 It was a crazy good weekend for Fly Tri Racing. Spencer Otero, Sr. of Whitehouse and Hayden Jeffus, Fr. of Bullard swept the Brookhill meet going 1-2. Hayden had a heckuva a sprint finish the last few meters to steal 2nd overall from Gladewater Sabine. 

  9.2. We've been working with Garrett Mayeaux the last couple of years who is now coaching with us to help him earn his pro card and today it finally happened. He finished 3rd overall amateur the Des Moines Escape olympic distance triathlon in a new PR of 1:55:06.
