spring tri update

Team Clif has continued to have a busy and exciting start to 2005.  Here’s a run-down of some of the interesting and noteworthy happenings from the first few months of the year. Here are just the triathlon highlights:

Bryan Rhodes finished 3rd on his home turf at Ironman New Zealand in early March.  It was a well deserved result for Bryan, who was absolutely ecstatic after the race.

LUNA Chix Triathlete Desiree Ficker took second at Ralph’s Half Ironman in mid-March and three weeks later at Ironman Arizona. Desiree’s LUNA Chix teammate, Heather Gollnick, finished 6th at Arizona after being misdirected into the Transition 2 area where she actually got off of the bike, put on her running shoes, and began her run – until officials realized that she still needed to complete a portion of the bike leg! So, Heather got back on the bike, completed the ride, and somehow still put in the effort needed to finish in 6th. Both Desiree and Heather are headed for Hawaii! 

On April 3rd, Chris McCormack made history by winning the 20th edition of Ironman Australia – his fourth straight win at IM Australia! Chris continues to be at the top of his game and proved, once again, that he’s one to watch during the 2005 season.

And the season’s just begun…
