Scot Rasich represents Diablo Cycling in the premier Half Ironman event in the state. Wisconsin Ironman 70.3!
This multisport race consisted of a1.2-mile (1.9 km*) swim, a 56-mile (90 km*) bike ride,
and a 13.1-mile (21.1 km*) run).
In Scot's words "IMMOOO 70.3 was fun.. woke up to pouring rain.. parked and veg'd with favorite playlist listening to rain..transition was interesting.. everything was wet. Wetsuit impossible to get on.Cause of heavy rain, delayed half hour.. waves in lake not like Door County.. so swam 1.6 miles vs 1.2.. (39:34), run through transition was muddy.. took longer to clean mud between toes.. bike was not funniest, for pushed into train and bend tri-bar pad.. kept speed under control.. had 2500 ft climbs with 40+ 90 degree turns, 4 descents were high speed with 90 degrees at end.. (2:46 ~20+ MPH)"
Check out the image of the transition below. It reminds me of Jinglecross 2016.
* there you go Adam K.
WI Ironman 70.3 (above) and 2016 Jinglecross (below). Anyone note the similarities?
