Congrats guys! Very impressive performances.
Congratulations! Way to represent!
They let us race on the NASCAR race track. Good stuff.Check out this prize purse. Who'd a thought there's so much money in duathlon.Dirk walks away w/ $312.50http://www.usatriathlon.org/event/page/4449?event_id=1072
Were there differences in the course/how were amateur times that much faster?
yeah, different courses. Our first run hurt pretty bad, the cycling was hard as hell, for sure it was long (we did not average 23, at least 25.5, I was barely hanging on drafting). I think most of us were pretty beat the second run! I started next to shoemaker the last 5k (I found that out because there is a picture on triathlon.org!), but couldn't follow anymore!
In our race run was about a minute short, bike was more like 23 miles instead of 25 and the last 5k was about 30 seconds short. So it was more like a 6mile-23mile-3mile duathlon.Dirk had an incredible race. The only difference between him and first place is cycling experience. Shoemaker has spent years on the bike compared to Dirk.
Great job, guys!
