We’re meeting a little early over at Peak Sports to get a quick overview of bike maintenance tips. Afterward, we’ll move over to Laughing Planet for some tasty burritos and discussion on the Heart of the Valley race we put on last month as well as some talk about our race seasons.

See you there.

A few of us stayed in the valley and did the Lebanon Sprint Triathlon this weekend. Steve and Susie ran in the classic club kit and looked good doing it. Good job guys!

It looks like some of us had a bit of fun in the rain, and then the sun, at the Oregon Dunes Triathlon this weekend. We had a handful of members do the olympic distance, and one did the sprint. Pictures are posted on the Best in the West Events facebook page

I hope I didn’t miss anyone this time. If you raced at the event and I didn’t see you, please let me know so I can mention you.

Another early season race in the bag at the Western Oregon Sprint Triathlon in Monmouth today. We had three members participating, and a few of our crew rode up to cheer them on.

Meeting! This time we’re going to switch it up and meet at Laughing Planet for some food and discussion. We will be talking about last weekends event, the Beaver Freezer, the upcoming Corvallis Half Marathon, and the Heart of the Valley Triathlon. Dave Sullivan will be doing t brief talk that we’re tentatively calling Buying Speed that may be of interest to many of you.

The first big race of the season came to a close today at the OSU Triathlon Club’s Beaver Freezer. The weather was cooperating, and it seemed that everyone had a good day. It was also nice to see our own Blair Bronson take first place overall this year.

Congrats to all who raced, and a huge thank you to those of you who were there throughout the day volunteering to help make the event a success.
