This past weekend at Guelph Lake 1, the second Subaru Triathlon series race was a scorcher. With the sweltering temperatures, hundreds of participants took part in the event, from the try-a-tri to club championships, and the duathlon to the triathlon. It was an all-around great two days of racing despite the temperatures.
Team LPC Yolo Swaggers won the Olympic and sprint relay in a time of 2:07:29, and 1:00:40.
Dylan Pust and Shelia Trelevan won the Olympic triathlon in a time of 1:57:13 and 2:14:45 respectively. Then Jackson Laundry and Carley Somerset won the sprint triathlon in a time of 56:12 and 1:07:54.
Billy Bastad and Andrea Smith won the Olympic duathlon in a time of 1:44:15 and 2:00:22. Then Spencer Summerfield and Natalie Wright won the sprint duathlon in a time of 58:46 and 1:11:58 respectively.
The swim/bike event also had an Olympic and sprint distance. Markus Rumble (1:29:45) and Rebecca Croisier (1:38:33) won the Olympic swim/bike event. Then Nicolas Lambert (43:10) and Jennifer Schengili (53:05) won the sprint swim/bike event.
The race, however, did not go without incident. On Saturday a competitor was hit by a driver during the bike course. With road rash along his arm, shoulder and back, he completed the rest of the race. The police were immediately on the scene of the accident, catching the driver later. The driver was towing a trailer which was likely the cause of the crash.
