Climbing Podiums and Turning Heads, Part 2
This past weekend, Ventum Pro Cameron Dye won the Lake Geneva Escape Triathlon! Congrats to Cam on getting first place!!
The next day, three other Ventum Pros lead the pack at IRONMAN 70.3 Cozumel. Leanda Cave and Matt Chrabot each took the podium in 2nd place and Cody Beals finished in 4th.
Grinding out another 4th at #IM703Cozumel. I swam well, rode my lowest 70.3 power ever, then rallied with a strong run in the hellish heat and humidity. It's hard to get excited about 4th place, especially my third this season, but it's still another step in the right direction. Congrats @terenzo1, @mattchrabot, @maumendezc! Thank you @ironman70.3cozumel for another superb race experience! 📷 @cristylpzc
2nd in Cozumel Ironman 70.3! After leading the swim and riding well, I got greedy in the opening 5km of the run and ran a bit harder than I should've. The heat in this place is unreal. While I began hemorrhaging time to the competition after the first 10km @terenzo1 was able to close the 1 minute deficit, I managed to hang on to the bridesmaids slot without letting @maumendezc catch me. Well done to all the #triathlete today.
Over in Cervia, Italy, Jen Fletcher finished in 7th place. Congrats, Jen!
