busy weekend

Cameron Dye wins the Lifetime Fitness South Beach Triathlon

If last weekend is any indicator the 2011 triathlon season is definitely here. The always exciting ITU World Championships Series got underway in Sydney while Chrissie Wellington broke long distance records in South Africa. The dominant University of Colorado Triathlon Team repeated at USAT Collegiate National Championships and blueseventy is happy to be supporting three of the top five collegiate clubs. U.S. 70.3 Pro Championships took place in Texas with Chris Lieto taking a very deserving win while our man Rasmus Henning backed up an impressive second place at Oceanside 70.3 with a another strong second place in Texas. Scotland's Cat Morrison, a multiple Duathlon World Champion and blueseventy athlete, took control on the run and was first women across the finish line in Texas. But the performance of the weekend has to go to Cameron Dye. Why? Well he did beat the likes of Andy Potts, Filip Ospaly, Michael Weiss and Andrew Yoder at the Lifetime Fitness South Beach Triathlon, but that's not the real reason. More importantly Cam found out that he is soon to be a father! That is one way to back up a win! We wish Cam and Natalie the best and of course fast racing this season! Hey, he's off to a good start!

Cat Morrison wins 70.3 Texas

blueseventy is proud to announce that Sara McLarty has joined the team in 2011. Sara was first female and fourth pro, male or female, out of the Atlantic on Sunday in South Beach. She finished 7th in the pro division. A former Gator swimmer and Olympic Trails qualifier we're super stoked to have an athlete of Sara's caliber racing in our product and providing crucial feedback on how to improve our wetsuit and swim skins. She's also organizing a 2 mile swim in central Florida slated for April 23rd. Click here for more information on the first annual Swim Across Minneola.

And finally we'd like to send a congratulations to Blaire Johnson of Florida who won our Get Balanced Facebook sweepstakes. She was the lucky winner of an Axis wetsuit. Her response: "I can't even tell you how excited I am to have been announced the winner of the wetsuit. I was in an aquarium shop buying some new plants and fishies for my tank at home, when I recieved the notification email; I let out a huge squeal and bounced in circles." Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more upcoming contests for your chance to win!
