What an incredible day on Saturday! Although conditions were tough, the Timex Team produced two world champions and several outstanding performances. With 15 Multisport athletes and 5 Factory Team athletes, the Island was swarming with Timex kits.
Here are the results:
Lisa Roberts – 20th Pro (9:44:51)
Jackie Arendt – 29th Pro (10:20:54)
Richie Cunningham – DNF on the run
Matt Russell – 23rd Pro (8:49:03)
