Jano’s Report: Delta Lake Tri, August 22

August 23, 2010


Kristen M and Jano posing at the start.

Waking up knowing it was going to be a very rainy day I was not too concerned, because I like to be cooler for triathlons, well, careful what you ask for!
I had my very big and cool support crew – husband Hans. It is so much easier to have someone there to say “hold my glasses”, “hold my wetsuit”, “go get me a coffee”,  “find me the bathroom!” I saw Kristen and we discussed various extremely important strategies.   :o)
Off we go!  Men first, women second. It was a tight out and back course. I really love the swim when just a few years ago I was terrified.  Anyway, off to bike felt slower in transition but OK.


Felt great to be on bike and I was using a borrowed aero helmet to try in race. I look like a character out of star wars according to my son. Cool!


At mile 5 I noticed glass and then, boom FLAT!!!!! Crap. A frickin’ beer bottle, I HATE beer bottles!!!!!  I have learned to be patient and not dwell,  so I got off tried to compose to change it. Wow, new tires HARD to remove with one tire iron, RAIN with grass, grit, more rain but I managed after about 10-15 minutes which felt like an eternity…I must practice flat changing more….Got back on bike praying to the tri gods that it will hold. Two out and back turns fairly rolling flat course, POURING now! A little discouraging to get back to transition and seeing I am way behind.


Buck up! off to run 3 loop course around Delta Lake campground nice course.





Ended up 4th in 50-59 age group. Not worried, I was happy to have continued whole race with a fairly good attitude, not getting hard on myself….big improvement this year.
Kristen did well; she came in 2 in her 30-34 age group. All-in-all a great course recommend it to all.
Last pic, this is husband Hans “celebrating” our son Lars’ 13th birthday post race.  Note gleam in Dad’s eye…

Canal Classic – New New York Bellas!

August 16, 2010

August 15, Little Falls, NY


Rockin’ the white version of the VB Jersey!

New NY Bella Kathleen Rutishauer, newest NY Bella Angela Ott and Cynthia Schnedeker completed the Canal Classic Sunday in Little Falls, NY. Kathleen just got her jersey about 2 weeks ago and had already recruited Angela in time for race day.

They had great weather, cool and cloudy. Fortunately, rain held off until AFTER the race. Despite an effort to stay together, the three got separated due to the climbs (the second climb is 4 miles long!) but Cynthia teamed up with a woman from the Catskills at the bottom of Bardow – the 4 mile climb- and they rode together to the end.  She is interested in joining and forming a group of VB’s in her area – our NY group is ever growing!!

Cynthia was clever enough to work out the NY Bella Flair and managed to bring some pink fluff for Kathleen and Angela-notice the pink fluff on Kathleen’s bike- and both swore it helped.  The view at the top of Bardow is priceless-you can see the tops of the Adirondack mountains!

For those of  you who were unable to ride in this year’s race-next year will be the 20th and possibly the last, so mark your calendars!!

Results to yet to be posted!
