Bad Hair Day - Lake Havasu Results

Len Joy & Tom Vecchi after the race
 
Despite a 20 mile per hour headwind on the first twelve miles of the bike course, I was able to beat Victor Hernandez (the only guy in my age group) by 6 minutes on the run segment of the Lake Havasu Triathlon.  Unfortunately Victor didn’t seem to be bothered by the wind on the bike segment and he beat by eleven minutes on that segment.

 

So I finished second in my age-group (or last if you wanted to be negative about it) and so I didn’t qualify for the USAT Nationals. But I have two more shots at qualifying. I had a good race, exceeded my expectations on the swim and the run, but the wind was fierce on the bike course. I averaged 12 mph on the first half and 25 mph on the return, but the other guy was faster.

Here are the results:
