And still so many more races to go! Take a look at the results page on the website for results of the racing from the summer thus far!
Wow! Todd Smith is on fire with an AG win @ Rev 3 half iron and then an overall smoke ‘em win @ Hits Hague, NY half in June. Donna Smyers got a 1st AG win at Mt.Washington, that race with just one hill. Carol Blattspieler took a 3rd in AG at Ironman 70.3 Syracuse and Chris Cover/Dot Martin got on the podium with 5th place AG finishes @ Mt. Tremblant. All 70.3 finishes qualified the three for the 70.3 World Championships set for September in Mt. Tremblant. Mr.Trull is running strong with a couple of nifty marathon finishes. The list goes on.
To continue the theme of dominating races, the GMM ladies started July by sweeping the Vermont scene. The first weekend of July, Dot Martin won the women’s sprint race at Vermont Sun and Angie Defilippi raced the half iron in Fairlee the next day to a first place finish.Erin Preston had an impressive 3rd place in the women’s Olympic distance race
at Vermont Sun while Michelle Rousseau had a 5th place age group finish at the olympic distance race in Fairlee. Paddy Kreuger, a GMM Youth racer, came in 2nd in the under 19 group at Vt.Sun sprint. He is 12.
Saving the very best for last, Kyle Darling did the Vermont Sun sprint on Saturday.
Kyle has had a lot going on in his life in the last couple of years. Married life and being cancer free must agree with him. His time on Saturday was almost 20 minutes faster than the same race last year!
