This weekend’s Clash Daytona race promises to be yet another exciting day of racing as we watch the likes of Olympic champion Kristian Blummenfelt blast along the speedy course at Daytona International Speedway. There are three Canadian pros in the field this weekend – we caught up with them today as they get ready for the big day on Saturday.
The 2004 and 2012 Olympian moved up to long-distance racing after his Olympic career, and has won four Ironman races over the years. While many of the athletes in this field are rounding out a long season, McMahon has been building through the fall, so appears to be ready to compete with the speedsters here in his first visit to Daytona.
It’s been a tough year for Canadian Rach McBride in terms of long-distance races as they’ve struggled with nutrition issues, but this weekend’s shorter-distance race should provide a much better opportunity for them to shine here in Daytona.
As he gears up for his fourth appearance at Daytona International Speedway, Taylor Reid looks to enjoy another big day here in Florida.
