Congratulations to Luis Ortiz for crushing his race on Sunday. He won overall!
As you are aware, this week I am leaving Thursday after my 10 am session to North Carolina for the Training Camp. Therefore, this weekend, you are on your own. You can make arrangements within yourselves to meet up and ride. Please ride safe and obey all traffic laws.
Special Olympics Triathletes – Florida
Even though Covid impacted SO group triathlon practices and our official race season this year, many of our athletes continued to train and most participated in our virtual triathlon! So proud of them!
Additionally, I am excited to report that 5 of our athletes (so far) have independently decided to race in the Daytona Sprint Triathlon challenge on Dec. 6 as part of the Central Florida Triathlon Club.
- Jonathon Sady (Jamie Moses)
- Andrew Ahearn (Phyllis Crain)
- Adrienne Bunn (Linda Freeman)
- Kennet Lefkovic (Wynne McFarlin)
- Chris Nikic (Dan Grieb)
The race director has agreed to have a separate bike rack in transition designated specifically for the SO athletes racing with the Central Florida Tri club. This will permit us to see each other at set up and during transitions (as timing permits). Athletes will be racing in their respective age groups. There is no Special Olympics division as this is not a Special Olympics sanctioned race.
If there are other SO athletes interested in participating in this race, let me know. I can find a partner for you if your regular unified partner is not available or interested. You can register using the discount code for Central Florida Triathlon Club to get a 10% discount. The rates go up (again) after Oct. 31. You can sign up here: https://challenge-daytona.com/races/sprintdistance/. The discount code is: “CD20-CentralFloridaTriathlonClub”. If tents are permitted, Coach Hector intends to set up the CFL Tri Club tent so we can all find each other at the end of the race, if not sooner. We encourage everyone to follow covid safety guidelines and recommendations.
Enclosed you will find the schedule for this week.
