Big Results for blueseventy at Alcatraz

Andy Potts became a 3 time champion with his win at the 2009 Escape from Alcatraz triathlon in San Francisco this past weekend. Mary Beth Ellis held off defending champion Leanda Cave on her way to the women's title.
While Andy is known for his dominate performance in the water, it seems that the young guns of the sport, Clayton Fettel and Dustin McLarty are not letting Potts take the swims with such ease. All 3 blueseventy athletes were in the first group out of the water with Clayton and Dustin in the lead, but it was Potts who took control on the bike leg. Once off the bike Potts was unstoppable, putting together his third straight win here at Alcatraz.
Rounding out the top three was David Thompson and Graham O'Grady, both having great days to finish on the podium in a very competitive pro field.
On the women's side, perennial favorite and blueseventy athlete Leanda Cave was out of the water second and moved into the lead later in the race but was edged out at the end to finish second. Still a stellar performance for Leanda - always the strong competitor.
Congratulations blueseventy athletes on strong performances in and out of the water!
