2006 Vytra-Tobay Triathlon & Tri Relay

The 2006 Vytra-Tobay Triathlon & Tri Relay was held on Sunday, August 20, 2006. I'm not sure of the exact number of atheletes who participated but one announcement said that there were over 1,400! Which based on the "Sea of Bikes" pictured below is probably pretty much right on the money. If you had left your house between 5 and 6am on Sunday morning, it certainly did not look ideal for a race. In fact, at times, it was pouring. It rained hard enough to leave fairly large puddles throughout the transition area but by race time, the sky began to clear and the course dried out fairly well. Except for the Swim, of course, which really had ideal conditions.

As usual, Bob pulled together another winning team as his relay pictured below took a First Place in their age group. But, if you get the chance, ask him if he beat the swimmer of the relay team that took Second in that same division. (Sorry Bob, I just couldn't resist!)

And, talk about your "usual suspects", check this happy trio below. Left to right, it's Tim, Jim and Rich (hiding under that Nike cap).
