LETC weekend results

LETC members had some tough racing at Buntzen Lake on Saturday while taking on the XTerra Off-Road Triathlon and Owen Sound in the final 2008 World Championship qualifier.

At the XTerra race, Kristina finished 4th overall and won her age category in the long course while Nicole extended her runner-up streak to 2 races with another 2nd place finish. Coach Andrew's bad luck streak continued when his demonstration of how to change a flat skills just after T1 was given an encore as his spare also leaked...

And lastly, Owen was the swimmer and runner on team Rowen, who won the team category.

And LETC's Rob Eakin traveled east this weekend to Owen Sound to try and earn a spot at the 2008 ITU World Championships here in Vancouver. In freezing water that almost saw the swim canceled, Rob raced to an 8th place finish in his category. We're waiting on news as to whether he picks up a qualifying spot for 08...

Well done Rob!
