Official Gear West Duathlon 2008 Results

The 2008 Gear West Duathlon had some of the best weather in recent memory as five hundred athletes took on this off road-on road duathlon as the Midwest Multisports Series began its ten race schedule. I’d say there weren’t a ton of surprises – David being sick still lets him close the race with a win, Curt had the fastest bike split (25.5mph), Neil Miller had the fastest run splits (5:40 and 5:50 paces), while on the women’s side Cathy Yndestad posted the fastest bike split to win overall, while Marlo at age 37 still finished second – but hello seventeen year old! Sarah Daniels at 17 broke into the top 10 overall for the women’s – we might just be hearing her name a lot this summer.

I have to say it was great to see John Shelp regain some of that short speed he was known for in years past by getting second, while the best spirit award in my book (from my vantage point as a competitor) was Julie Hull stopping to pickup Becky Youngberg’s bib number after her race belt came undone, and then encouraging others that passed her.

I might have a report of my own race later, but for now here are the results:
