Kate Bevilaqua raced Ironman Taiwan where high heat and humidity made the race so much harder. Kate put her patience and determination to the ultimate test by having to forget about pace, or speeds. This race was about surviving the best she could in the difficult conditions. Kate finished the race on the podium with a great 2nd place. A race to be proud of. Well done Kate.
Race Recap from Coach Perry Agass:
This weekend Gill Fullen took on Ironman Barcelona in what would be her 2nd Ironman of the season. Gill set off had a solid sea swim and came into T1 in a good position but a position where she needed to get her head down and work hard on the bike, that she did, Gill seemed to get stronger and stronger as the bike went on and came into T2 in 4hrs 53min an amazing PB for Gill. Onto the run where its her strongest discipline although the speed isnt there just yet she put in a solid performance on the marathon to cross the line in 9.43 which is another PB overall / 1st in her AG / qualification for Kona 2018 and slipped in the top 20 overall.
Gills had an amazing season this year, everyone knows her story by now and she’s an inspiration for everyone.
Race Recap from Coach Ed Rechnitzer:
Big congrats to Jeremy Breach for taking the overall win at the scorching hot and windy Rocky Point Olympic triathlon at Puerto Penasco, Mexico on Sat! All the hard work in the swim continues to pay off as Jeremy emerged 4th out of the water. He seized 3rd on the bike and then put it down on the run to cross the line first. “The front runners all ran out of steam and I was able to just keep pushing through. Biked without power meter because it wasnt reading, paced off of feel [music to coach’s ears!]. Beat the other guys in the last 3 miles of the run without having to tear up my legs in a final push or sprint!” Awesome effort mate. Well done.

Race Recap from Coach Carson Christen:
Craig Strong completed in the Naptown half-distance race this weekend in Indiana, and our first race together since he joined the TriSutto squad earlier this Summer. At the end of the day, Craig produced a 7th place Overall and won his age group on the back of a solid swim, bike, and run! We still have some equipment and fit issues to work out, but we are well on our way to a great start towards preps for Ironman Brazil in 2018! Great job, Craig!
Jappas Du Preez ran a local cross-country league race in England this weekend crossing the line in 4th place! It’s great to see Jappas running completely healthy and producing some fun and great results this Fall! Congrats, Jappas!
Maxi Spahn produced another podium this weekend, finishing 3rd at the Cube Cup Scheßlitz MTB. Maxi has some great form, but we are searching for that luck that has taken away the top step of the podium in the last few weeks! Keep pushing and it’ll come soon, Maxi!
Congratulations to all athletes competing this weekend.
