Matt Nunally defended his 2012 Born to Tri Title as he cruised to victory while Shannon Grady took her first overall title. Both the men's and women's races featured tight competition as the top-5 in both races was seperated by just over 3-minutes.
Nunally, a famed ocean swimmer out distanced the field in the 500-meter swim. He as trailed by Clydesdale winner Steve Hodgins out of the water. Matt didn't stop there though. He turned in the fasted bike split on the day to extend his lead where he was able to cruise the 3-mile run along Fletcher Lake and the Asbury Boardwalk to take his 2nd consecutive BTT title.
Joe Ward turned in the 2nd fastest bike of the day and a solid 18-minute run to take the runner up position. The race for 3rd was tight as Dan Chawner (1:00:02) was able to hold off both Joe Rooney (1:00:09) and Bradley Wedemeyer (1:00:19).
Chris Ward out-legged the Master's field to take the men's title while Robert Greaves and Raymond Campeau had an epic battle for the Grand Master's. On the women's side, Kristin Cacicedo took the Master's title in 1:12.
Iain Alexandridis and Maggie Gousman take Vice Versa Titles in true Vice Versa format! Iain (17:04 5K) and Maggie (19:42 5K) blazed the run, hung tough on the bike, and swam their way to the finish line in the 2013 Vice Versa on Saturday, July 6th at the Allenhurst Beach Club. This unique reverse or traditional formatted race saw 9 of the top 10 men’s winners start with the run while 5 of the top 6 women ran the in the humidity first as well.
Iain, a sophomore at VT and a BPC athlete, has been on a tear this spring and summer. He came off a short recovery from the REV3 Williamsburg 70.3 where he went 4:22 to win his age group. Second in VV was Jesse O’Donnell who has been on a cycling tear this season. He made up the 1-minute deficit he lost on the opening 5k on the bike, but was unable to hold off Iain on the swim. The 2012 champion of VV, Glen Hartrick, rounded out the Top-3 men’s race.
In the woman’s race, Marlana Hodgins who finished second was in the lead after leg #1 where she posted one of the fastest swim times of anyone on the day, but she could not finish the deal on the hot run (23:29 5K). Gousman’s fast 5K and solid bike and finishing swim was enough to give her the overall title by 1-minute and 40-seconds. Jillian Reichart rounded out the women’s Top-3 finishing less then a minute behind. Hodgins.
In the Lame Duck, Howard Levine (51:07) Laura Seavy (51:50) went 1-2 overall to win the mens’ and women’s titles as they both posted the fastest swim and bike times to “run away” from the competition.
Discounts from Jersey Shore MultiSport 2013 SponsorsA friend and fellow triathlete, Mark Heid started a new business called Wheel Traders. WT sells BOTH new and used wheels. They are authorized dealers for Easton and Reynolds and also carry Zipp, Campy, Bontrager. Not only that, they will take your old wheels on trade-in. The discount on Easton and Reynolds may be a little more than on those wheelsets you special order. For Jersey Shore Multi-Sport participants, WT is offering 25% off. I believe most bike shops will do 20% off and WT should beat that. Also, and I think its key, WT will take used wheelsets on trade, which shops don’t do. Visit their website athttp://www.racewheeltraders.com/
Xterra Wetsuits is again working with JSMS. You can use the code (R-JSM) as many times as you want and share it with your friends. They are not only a sponsor, but Carrie and I each have both racing and training suits. Honestly, they offer a great value and the customer service is unbeatable. The Vector long sleeve ($240) or Vortex long sleeve ($160) is a great training and racing suit and you really can’t beat the price. We will offer a demo-day later this spring so you can try them on and make sure you get the right size suit.http://www.xterrawetsuits.com/
We would also like to welcome USI Insurance who is a financial backer. Without the support of companies like USI we would not be able to keep the cost of racing so low. The cost associated with putting on quality races are high and we would like to thank all of our sponsors for the 2013 season.
Hope you are able to take advantage of some of these discounts
We have been working hard to assemble a group of sponsors who can help you to be the best triathlete you can be. Over the coming weeks we will highlight all of our sponsors. Over the next two weeks we will let you know how to be the best triathlete you can be in 2013.
