Weekend Results

ISM had an interesting weekend of racing with athletes competing in Australia, California, and New Orleans. Here's a brief list of race reports:

April 4, 2009 Ironman 70.3 California Oceanside, CA New recruit Andy Potts 2nd! 2 time defending champion, Andy Potts would beat his Oceanside PR by 5 minutes and finish 2nd. Andy had a solid swim and bike, but it all came down to the run. He would finish a mere 1:46 down from first. Way to go Andy. Proud of ya. In the women’s event, defending champion Erika Csomor would finish 4th in 4:28:31. Andy competed using his Adamo Road saddle and Erika with her trusty Adamo Racing.

April 5, 2009 Ironman 70.3 New Orleans New Orleans, LA Team ISM was down expo’ing at this event. Thanks to all the folks who came by the booth. It was a big weekend for us as 5 of us competed and all 5 finished. In the pro division, Austin, TX stud Brandon Marsh would take 6th and Chris McDonald would finish 13th. It was a warm day indeed, but it’s always nice hanging in the Big Easy. Brandon and Chris both competed using their Adamo Racing saddles.

April 5, 2009 Ironman Australia Port Macquarie, Australia Patrick Vernay wins! Vernay is now a 3X winner of IMOZ. After exiting the swim, Vernay had some time to make up. He would eventually motor his way up to a top 3 off the bike and by mile 13 on the run, pull away from his peers. Patrick won by over 4 minutes on the next competitor. Keep it up my man. Sadly, multiple world champ and ISM athlete Michellie Jones would not start the event due to a nagging leg injuryand flu. Patrick Vernay won the event using his Adamo Racing saddle.

April 5, 2009 Ironman South Africa Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa ISM and Team TBB athlete Lucie Zelenkova wins!! Read her race report on her blog. http://www.teamtbb.com/luciezelenkova Lucie raced using her pink Adamo Racing saddle. Congrats on your first IM victory, Lucie. I’m sure many more will follow.
