Rio 70.3 Champion – Congratulations Rei! Photo Credit: @wagner.araujo.photo @mundotrilive
Great to see Reinaldo Colucci in his first race back with Trisutto return to his best by winning Ironman 70.3 Rio de Janeiro. It showed his character. An already 2 time Olympian and 2 time Pan American champion who was controversially left out of his home Olympics, Rei demonstrated with actions that the best Brazilian triathlete was not representing his country. Well done.

Sarah Crowely kicked back into action after a post Kona break at the South Australian MurrayMan Half Ironman. Sarah took out the title and with that a solid session as she begins to re-build toward some late season races.
Race Recap from Coach Mat O’Halloran:
On the last Friday of October, Paolo Magnilinan competed in his 3rd race in as many weekends, where he secured 3rd position in his age group, all the while finishing 8th overall, at the 2XU Sprint Triathlon in the United Arab Emirates.
But the real takeaway was beating athletes who had finished ahead of him in the previous events a few weeks ago, by putting together a very solid run off the bike, of which has been his downfall in other races earlier this year. Pao also completed the race in a faster overall time than in February, during same event and distance.
Now with 2 races to go before the end of this season, he looks to “up the ante” in training. By extending his speed endurance, continuing to develop his overall strength and focusing more on specific intensity.
Race Recap from Coach Edith Niederfriniger:
Emanuele Mutti did a really great job at the Lodi (Italy) half marathon! He ran in 1:20.12 which means a new PB (before 1:22.13).
He is getting stronger and stronger, a very consistent athlete and we are looking forward to improve further in 2017.
Martina Dogana, our professional athlete, after a surgical treatment a few weeks ago, is not still there where she belongs. But at the half distance at Challenge Forte Village (Sardinia-Italy) against a very strong pro field, she gave it all to place 9th in 4:53.26. So we are satisfied with this result and will for sure improve till her last race of a very long season (she started racing in January at Israman), 70.3 Phuket at the end of November.
Massimo Argiolas, M50-54 raced also at Challenge Forte Village and placed 10th in his age group, 5:20.34 for him. In 2 weeks he will do IM Malaysia, so the physical condition is very good and we are looking forward
Race Recap from Coach Dan McIntosh:
After tough day of learning lessons at Ironman Chattanooga 6 weeks ago TriSutto rookie Matthew Tatum dusted himself off and got to work on preparing for his final two races of 2016, the Two Cities Marathon and the Palm Spring HITS Full Distance Triathlon.
This weekend was the Two Cities Marathon and offered Matthew the first opportunity to apply lessons learned from Chattanooga as well as tap into his post Ironman fitness. He showed maturity of a seasoned racer by following a very conservative plan for the first half and then showed bravery by attacking the last 10k with his best effort. His hard work in training, wisdom is following a plan and guts finishing strong earned him top 20 overall with a 3:15, an 8 minute PB. With 4 weeks until HITS he’s right on target for ending the 2016 season on a high note.
Race Recap from Coach Mateo Mercur:
This fall I’ve given Oliver Saxon a run focus in his training. This weekend he put it to his first true test out at the Deep Dale Dash 10K. After getting solid 5K and 10K field tests under his belt, Ollie beat the goal time I set for him by 8 seconds in what Ollie described as “freezing, throwing it down with rain, and hilly – a typical northern England day and race.” Well done in challenging conditions. I’m looking forward to seeing what you can do in two weeks at the half-marathon and in a month when you race the 10K distance again!
Last weekend, fresh off her race at 70.3 Miami, Lauren Capone raced again at 70.3 Los Cabos. LC got things off to a great start exiting the water in 5th position and just 30 seconds off the lead. Her bike/run combo was good enough to finish the day in 10th position in a very solid field. This campaign also marked the end of an era for LC. It was the final sortie for her trusted Felt B2, Saphira. Saphira was there from the start, and won two age-group world titles and the inaugural Ironman Maryland title. The new, yet unnamed bike, will make her debut at Ironman Cozumel.
Race Recap from Coach Robbie Haywood:
Andrea Rudin is enjoying off season in Switzerland, and the local running races on offer. This weekend she lined up at the Gurtenclassic in Berne, an 8.6km road race that finishes up hill on tired legs 🙂 With the race being an afternoon race, the day started with a wake up run in the morning with some fartlek to get things moving!
The weather was cold and wet, but the racing fast from the gun. The last 5km up hill was tough, in a good way, and the weather bringing snow flakes at the top. A fun event, with a PR of almost 1 minute from Andrea’s best time on this course 12 years ago (!) was a great result, and good enough for 7th overall and 2nd in category. Super! The day concluded with an hour easy on the turbo to loosen up – dedication and consistency the secret to results. Well done Andrea 🙂
Chiin-Hooi Tan rounded out her off season ‘break’ with a cross country run race in her home town in Denmark. A second place an unusual occurrence for Chiin, but still good enough to cement her grip on the club female athlete of the year. Now to get back into organised training and plans for 2017.
Race Recap from Coach Susie Langley:
After a good block of training Mariana Andrade was excited to return to race Rio 70.3, a race she won last year. Unfortunately however Mariana didn’t have the race we were after and was disappointed with a 7th place finish. Onwards and upwards!
Congratulations to all our athletes competing this weekend.
