TRISUTTO / Team PRorER Athletes Atop the Podium on Left and Right Coasts!

October 15

This past weekend featured TRISUTTO / Team PRorER athletes racing from coast to coast in the US. 

Wendy Hart wrapped up her 2018 triathlon season by capturing first place in the Female Open Masters division of the Dam Triathlon in Lexington, SC. The swim was cancelled due to high winds, so the format was changed to a 21 mile time trial bike start followed by an advertised 7K run which was much closer to 6K. Wendy is now training for a a relay ultra run in the next few weeks, followed by the Kiawah Island Marathon where she will be attempting to qualify for Boston again. 2018 was a big step up in performance by Wendy as she moved from the age group category to the open female division in the South Carolina Triathlon Series, and made several podium appearances in her debut. Bigger things coming in 2019 for her!

Julia Norcia also capped off her 2018 triathlon season at the Dam Triathlon. After performing below her own expectations at Ironman 70.3 Augusta few weeks ago, Julia was determined to redeem herself on Saturday. She managed to pull off a first place in the Female 45-49 age group, as well as 10th overall female. This was the second top 10 overall finish for her in the series. Julia finished in second place for her age group in the overall series championship. After riding this next weekend in the HIncapie Grand Fondo she will also be dialing in her training for the Kiawah Island Marathon in December. In just a few months Julia has gone from participant to contender, and I expect even bigger gains for her in 2019.

Last, but not least, Joy Jocson stood atop the podium for her division at the Legends Triathlon in San Dimas, CA on Sunday. The race is part of the LA Tri Series, which has a long history of highly competitive short course events. Joy not only won her division, but won it by 22:00 in a sprint event. After a few set backs in the early season Joy is starting to come into her own as a result of her belief in the way we do things, and her commitment do getting them done. She will now focus her training for the 70.3 distance in December. We are looking forward to working with her at our Cozumel, Mexico camp in January as well.
