Happy Friday – SQUIRREL!

From USA Triathlon

These Squirrels Are Ready for Winter Triathlon

One month ago, the top winter triathletes around the world competed for national and world titles in championship events that took place in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Cheile Gradistei, Romania. These wild red squirrels wanted to join the action too!

Swedish photographer Geert Weggen works extensively with wild squirrels to capture unique, whimsical images. We’re pleased to feature Weggen’s latest photos, inspired by the sport of winter triathlon, which consists of a run, bike and ski.

Crested Butte Pole Pedal Paddle

 

The CB3P is a multi-sport, endurance race that spans the length of the Gunnison Valley, starting in Mt. Crested Butte, CO and finishing in Gunnison, CO.  With an uphill/downhill ski leg, road bike leg, and kayak leg, the CB3P takes participants and spectators on an exciting tour that follows the valley’s spring runoff path.

Competitors start at Crested Butte Mountain Resort with an uphill/downhill ski race, then transition to bikes and ride south on highway 135. When competitors reach the banks of the Gunnison River at the North Bridge put-in, they transition to kayaks and paddle to the Gunnison Whitewater Park for a thrilling race finish.

Men and women can compete as individuals in ‘Race’ or ‘Fun’ categories, or on teams relay-style.
