Race Reports
I'm always encouraging others to provide us with race reports especially if you have a talent for writing. I don't get as many as I would like. The importance of them  is what others can learn about your experiences and the race that you did. Diane sent me a race report from a friend of hers that gives the kind of insight into racing that might help others. It's also cool when you find out other people have the same thoughts that you have.

Stolen Bike
Hi all - I'm a local triathlete and wanted to spread the word that my 2007 Cervelo P2 was stolen last Thursday night. If you happen to see anything around that looks suspicious, I'd be grateful if you could let me know. It's the blue/white/black version and has a Cycleops PowerMeter (yellow computer), and a silver Terry saddle. It was stolen from the Pike Creek area. My 2008 IMLP bike stem number is still on it under the computer hub (#2047), so I can ID it that way, or through some marks on the frame. Thanks in advance for anything you see! Jessica Woodruff  (Contact Coach if you have any information and I will pass it on to Jessica.)
From Xterra Wetsuits
I am writing you today because we are in the process of making our sizing chart more accurate for you and your team members, and we are hoping to get some assistance from your current XTERRA Wetsuit wearers!

We have compiled a brief survey that will only take about 1 minute to complete.  While there is no requirement for completion, we hope you and your team members will take the time to fill it out.  Fill it out before May 31st and you can enter your email address at the end for a chance to win a free Transition Backpack!

We are requesting that only current users of an XTERRA Wetsuit fill out the form.  We appreciate any feedback you can give as it will only help you and future team members order the right suit the first time!

Please follow the link below to view the survey:
