Races and Local Race Results
- F-1 Draft Legal Tri - Roswell, 8/26
- Socorro Fat Tire Fiesta - 8/10-12

Rattlesnake Olympic Tri up in Aurora. Matt came through with an 12th/20
place finish in his AG while Cathy PR'ed her race on the way to a 6/20
Las Vegas Olympic Triathlon
Matt & Cathy were the lone SSR participants at the 7/23 Las Vegas
Tri. Matt came through with an 8th place finish in his AG while Cathy
won hers! RESULTS
Burn Lake Duathlon
Not only did Robert help out at the mini-tri, but he raced the Burn
Lake Duathlon on Saturday the 22nd. This is one of the toughest du's in
the state, with two runs and a VERY long bike in the middle. To top it
off, he got 3rd in his AG!!
Kelly Mine Run
The recent rains made for a nice race from Magdalena to Kelly on July
9th. Ephraim Ford came in 2nd, about 4 minutes behind Matt, a visiting
runner from Ohio who broke the course record. Other notable finishes
included Kim Schaeffer, who was 2nd female.
More details & photos will come as I take time to put them in. This was a great race as usual.
Robert was the only SSer present for the full Bottomless Triathlon.
That meant he had some tough competition in his age group as usual and
finished in 67 minutes.
Buffalo Springs Trathlons
Terry Moore, Mike Montoya, and others competed in the Buffalo Springs races on the weekend of June 24-25. Check out the results page where you can see that Mike not only did the sprint but he won it!
Katie continues to make great progress towards her goal of a sub-4:00
marathon. This time it was Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, MN, where she
finished in 4:21:24, or about the top 1/3rd of all females.
France Stevens Triathlon
windy as the last tri! There were enough last minute entries to make it
a fun race with 84 participants. As usual, the run was about .2 miles
short in the 5k/35k/400m race.
I have scanned in the raceday results, which have at least error (Mary Wells in M45-49) Page 1 & Page 2.

Duece's Wild Triathlons
The results are finally up on the race's webpage.
Great job to Cathy Pfeifer for finishing third in the Olympic tri, Matt
for being 5th/11 in a tough age group. They also finished well (3rd I
blieve) in the Off-road tri relay!
Steven Montoya had an excellent time in Kona for the 70.3 (was called a
half-ironman). He even placed 15th in his age group and 113th overall.
