Four lucky racers walked away this weekend with more than just great memories of the race down in Palo, IA. The Kinetic indoor trainer, QR Kilo, Ultrajohn wetsuit, and Gear West gear bag were simply icing on the cake as racers enjoyed gorgeous (more temperate) weather and a stellar race put on by John Snitko/ JMS Racing.
For the men’s race, DKT came in a blazing 15+ minutes ahead of Chuck Sloan. There was a race to 2nd place as Kevin O’Connor finished right on the heels of Sloan, closing the gap out of T2 into the run. Other notables from MN were Sam Janicki, Alex Hooke, and Thaddeus Ingersoll. For the women, Kortney Haag barely missed 1st place, coming just behind Jennifer Sloan from Tulsa, OK. Ruth Morre, from Rochester, MN rounded out the top 3 of the women’s podium, turning in a great time for the day.
