Burnet Tri-Hard Triathlon
The Burnet Triathlon was this past sunday and as usual it was a good one. Austin Tri-Cyclist had a strong showing with George Schmitz winning the mens division with a dominant swim and held his lead throughout the race. Alex Schaefer was the runner up, but bested the field on the bike going a minute faster than the rest. For the women Keri Rimel lead the race off the bike and was able to cruise home for the victory. Team Stroobandt took home second place in each of their age groups while wwearing the ATC jersey - Congrats.
If you havent done this race before, put it on your calender for next year. Its a fun and challenging 800m swim, 18 mile bike, 5k Run.
An interesting side note: 4 out 5 of the top 5 bike splits were done on a Cervelo TT bike. I'm not saying the bike does all the work, but it certainly helps!
