Congratulations to Raphael Zagury finishing IRONMAN 70.3 Texas (4:37) and to Matt Bach finishing Half Hook Mountain Half Marathon (2nd OA, 1:16).  Remember, please post your results on the website after you race –  http://www.gctri.org/race-results/submit-results/

Don’t miss it – tomorrow (4/12) we are having a Transition Clinic and Bike Skills Clinic at Liberty State Park at 2pm.  We will meet the large parking lot in the middle of Freedom Way.  Bring your bikes and your gear to participate.  Look for the bike transition rack.

Good luck to Ed Burke, Nicole Ogrosso, Heather Cameron, Vito Ciraco and Steve Ostrander racing the Unite Half Marathon this weekend!

This weekend we have a few options available for group rides (all rides depart from 14th St. Ferry).  On Saturday, Nicci will be leading a 2 hour (B,C ride) that will depart at 7am.  Also on Saturday, RJ and Maria will be leading a 45-50mi (A ride) that will depart at 8am.  On Sunday, Jared Lando is leading a 100-110mi (A ride) that will depart at 7am.  The nice weather is here and we are in full swing with weekday workouts (Tues AM Track and Thurs AM Ride) – we hope you take advantage and join us!  Happy Training!

Congratulations to GCTri members who competed at Caesar Rodney Half Marathon in Wilmington, DE. Matt Bach (1:16, 9th OA) and Jared Tootell (1:16, 12th OA) crushed it! At Michelob Ultra NYC Half Marathon Kevin Portmann finished a super fast (1:20, 5th OA).

There are some exciting upcoming events on the calendar:  On April 5th we will have the 1st Annual Fun Race (this is a team format with different mental and physical challenges).  It promises to be a good time.  On April 12th we will be having a Transition/Bike Handling clinic in Liberty State Park.  If you intend on joining the group rides you really should participate – it will enhance the safety of the group.  If you are new to triathlon or looking for a few time saving tips there will be plenty to learn from the transition clinic.

Steve Rosselli is looking to ride tomorrow.  In checking the weather it looks like an early ride may be the best way to beat the rain.  Folks wishing to meet up with teammates to ride tomorrow should coordinate through the facebook site.  Official weekend group rides will start in April.  The Thursday morning hill repeat rides have been added to the calendar in anticipation of nice weather.  All riders must have front and rear lights for safety (it’s still very dark out at 5:40am).
