Race Report: Tackling the Wildflower Triathlon

ASJ writer Luke Yates takes on the Olympic distance race at iconic event by Luke Yates Photo: Alex Felker This weekend I headed down to Lake San Antonio to represent Adventure Sports Journal at the Wildflower Triathlons and compete in the Olympic distance event. The race certainly lived up to its reputation as an extremely challenging, but incredibly fun course. The morning of the race was warm and bright. Conditions were perfect at the swim start but the day promised to get much hotter as the race progressed. The swim leg at Wildflower has been modified due to the drought conditions at Lake San Antonio, so the race now starts at the Harris Creek boat ramp. Fast start There was chaos as my wave set off, with swimmers battling for position and swimming over each other to reach the first buoy. As the field spread out, I settled into...

Fat Tire Tuesday: The Sea Otters

Fat Tire Tuesday: The Sea Otters

Git some By Sarah Hansing Photo: Monterey Bay Aquarium Oh c’mon – like you guys had anything else on your mind this week. That’s right. It’s time for Sea Otter 2016. Now go drool over the newest latest and greatest products, gasp at the mad skillz of racers from all over the world and then get distracted by the shiny things again. (It’s basically impossible to NOT get distracted by the shiny things, after all. That’s kind of the point.) If you’re racing, good luck! And If you’re trying to not buy anything, good luck! And If you’ve forgotten where you parked … there isn’t enough luck in the world. And I will see you next year. (Yeah, I’ll be cooped up in the shop all weekend … but be sure to swing by the ASJ booth #760 to say hello to m’homies!) ​Fat Tire Tuesday columnist Sarah...
