Happy Bastille Day!

by The Coaches on July 14, 2015

As Le Tour de France heats up and heads into the Pyrenees (home of my paternal side), I continue to be amazed at what these athletes can do!

Here on the home front our own Start-Tri athletes have had some very impressive results!

At the Flat as a Pancake Tri, the Start-tri Team brought home some hardware! Results: Pete Kavalus and Coach Mickey won their AG, Dan Simonetti and Zolto were both 3rd in their AG, Coach Kristin, Steve Grimes and Mike Grussgott all had good results in tough AG. Unfortunately, Deirdre O’Mara got a flat on the bike!

At 1/2 Ironman Syracuse Amy Campbell, Mike Tropea Coach Mickey and Pete Kavalus all finished this very hard 70.3! Pete was closest to podium!

This past weekend at Randolph Sprint Tri, Mike Grussgott, Leon Herszon and Barbara Reuven all had good races.

At War at the Shore, Zoli Kemecsei won his AG and was 7th overall! Great job!

On tap this weekend we have Leon Herszon tackling the NJ State Olympic Tri and Coach Mickey, Dave Swezey and Steve Grimes racing Pequannock Tri.

Also on tap, we have Dave Swezey, Maureen Bruce, Stephanie Mitchell and Tom Whelan joining many athletes at Ironman Lake Placid!

Good luck to all competing…Will updates with later.

Train Smart, Race Smart, and have fun!

At the races…

by The Coaches on May 26, 2015

Racing season has hit the Northeast in the last few weeks!!!

After a long winter many Start-tri athletes emerged from hibernation at the Jerseyman Triathlon. Zoli Kemescei, Dave Swezey, Tom Whelan, Matt Starr, Mike Tropea and Coach Mickey tackled the tough course and all had good finishes.

This weekend saw racers Tom Whelan, Matt Starr and Pete Kavalus take on the Navesink 2.4 mile swim race with some Personal Bests!

Coming up we wish good luck to Pete Kavalus and Amy Campbell racing Raleigh 1/2 Ironman.

Next up will be Greenbrookracing’s Flat as a Pancake Triathlon on June 13th. The Start-tri team will be out in full force at this great race.

See you at the races;-)
