Alyssa Higgs Wins At Odessa

This is probably not the last time you'll see a headline like that. The Odessa Tumbleweed Triathlon, a 500m/20K/5K event in Odessa, Texas was held last weekend. Thirteen year-old Alyssa, and her father, E.P., both competed, with Alyssa finishing in 1:13 and E.P. in 1:19. Alyssa held her own in the swim, swimming stroke for stroke with the two of the top male triathletes in the region, Bobby Gonzalez and Perry Toles. She finished the swim just behind Gonzalez, and held on during the bike and run to take her first overall female victory.

Regular Meeting Tuesday July 1

Striders And Riders will hold a regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 1st, at the Socorro Public Library meeting room. The current agenda includes: the next meeting of the Socorro Hash House Harriers, the city pool status, an August bike rally, and event committee reports. If you have anything else for the agenda, please contact Matt Perini.

Fat Tire Fiesta And Triathlon Preparations in High Gear

Striders And Riders premier events, the Socorro Fat Tire Fiesta and the Socorro Chile Harvest Triathlon are both coming up soon. Both events are also in need of volunteers; if you're interested in helping out at two of Socorro (and New Mexico's) finest sporting events, contact us at In particular, the Fat Tire Fiesta is looking for people who can make trail traces for the ride maps.

Week in Review

Other than Alyssa's big win, the only other result we have to report is Mike Dennis's sixth-place finish in the NMRS D division at the Tour of Suburban Cloudcroft bike race. Mike finished fifth in the time trial in 53:00, and sixth in the road race. Also, a correction: Mike finished fifth in his division in the NM road championship, not eighth as previously reported.

Coming up, the Magdalena-Kelly run; this'll probably be on Sunday July 13th, but I haven't seen an Old Timer's schedule yet.
