Mark received his new P4 a few days before the event, I dialed in the position and he just took off, literally.  He beat his competition by 2 minutes with a 1:01.44.  Way to dig deep on a cold, windy, wet course.

Fred Williams - Personal record at the Patriot Half Ironman course in East Freetown, MA
Fred hit a PR, with faster swim and cycling times at the Half IM.   Being one of his early races of the season, he felt it was a good learning experience.  It reminded him of some key race strategies to work on in the coming weeks, in preparation for his Ironman.

David Hart- Finishing the 148 mile B2B Ride, Harpoon Brewery in Boston, MA to Winsor, VT Brewery
David describes this event as the “toughest ride I have ever done”.   He went on to say it was an “Incredibly fun day where I learned a lot about myself”.   Despite the brutally challenging course, he felt he was ready and decided he was even more ready to step up to his next challenge of getting ready for Vermont’s Six Gap Ride

Bruce Rychlik- Finishing the 148 mile B2B Ride, Harpoon Brewery in Boston, MA to Winsor, VT Brewery
“Longest ride I’ve ever done”.   Bruce describes his day as a fast paced challenge (relative to the duration) that was incredibly beautiful, and full of really nice people!  He felt well prepared and enjoyed the moments of saving energy to ride with the group but also realized sometimes he was using extra energy to ride with the group!   A great day!
