Thought I would toss out two great local racing opportunities. Team Wear On Earth will be representing both in force. The first is this upcoming weekend, the Tri-Town Bike Race, in Brasher Falls NY. So far we have Mike, Jeff, Bruce, and myself making the trek up. Although it is not an official USA-C race we are happy to be supporting cycling in any way here in the North Country. You never know who might show up! The race is to benefit the Tri-Town Summer Festival which is going to be held the following week. Registration starts at 10am at the Tri Town Community Center, race starts at 11am. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second of our local events would be the Norwood Triathlon which is on Aug 21st in Norwood, NY! Norwood already hosts a very successful duathlon series and this is another event to add to the mix. Last week at the duathlon series we had a good showing for WOE team members including myself, Scott, Mike, and new member Ben. We congregated around the Pepsi Car that was giving out water and ice tea after the race before heading to Little Italy for pizza. Pepsi-Cola Ogdensburg does a great job supporting local fitness activities.
Team Wear On Earth has two main groups of athletes, cyclists and triathletes. It is great to have these local events and I personally hope to see the events continue to grow as more people get into cycling and multi-sport activities.
