Official Photos from Maple Grove Tri

>> Wednesday, August 29, 2018

I saw Paul Phillips from Competitive Image shooting photos this past weekend at the race, and now Maple Grove Tri just put up an album of his images on Facebook. Here are a few that show the race nicely:


Oly start before 7:00.


Sprint waves turning at the 2nd big buoy for our 1/2 mile swim.

That last photo could have also been the lead swimmers in the Oly. They took a wrong turn (turned at at the 2nd big buoy instead of the 3rd in the distance), and a boat caught them and turned them all back around. Leah and I were watching it unfold from the shore as we waited to start the sprint an hour later.


Waves lining up on shore.




The quick, steep little climb out of T1. (Transition is just back around that corner in the distance.)




Lots of just small hills on the bike.










Oly runner (#11) coming out on T2 ready to do a loop around the lake,
with sprint racers coming to the finish behind him.






I remarked to Leah once that “oh, there are princesses here!”


In my race report, I noted a nasty climb out of T2. That ended back along those trees
in the distance, then we looped around a park. At this point, we were finally “settling in.”




The run was a nice loop through a s suburb.


A few large spectating groups at homes along the course. #DayDrinking




Nearing the park again!




This might be that final hill I mentioned in my race report.
