On Saturday I went down to see The Ben, Chris Tremonte and Brian Fleischmann race. In tow were my 3 ladies who despite vowing to never watch another triathlon decided to make it a family outing. This year there was a swim which made it a better race for Ben and without any rain it was going to be an honest race.
|Here’s Saturday morning from our place – a bit foggy on the Oakland side but it looked like we would see blue skies.|| |
The ladies were armed with their new Disney Princess lunchboxes.
|It’s serious business laying out the lunches.||I was really there.|
So handsome, so lean and so K-Swiss! Ben Collins.org in the flesh.
|Since I couldn’t find Chris Tremonte I found his sweet new bike. It’s even clean!|
He wasn’t kidding about these when he blogged.
Could Piper have looked more bored? Probably not.

|I’m willing to put money on that arm being Ben’s.|

Ben looking at the fool yelling with a cowbell and camera. Go Ben go!
| Jillian Petersen runs so fast I could only catch her after she passed by. |
|Matt Reed is big but not as fast as Victor was. Matt has had a long and solid year.|| |
Victor Plata – race winner.
Here are a few videos I made during the race.
Here’s the swim finish:
