Sip, Relax, and Enjoy! Free Virtual Wine Tasting with USA Triathlon!

In April, the USA Triathlon Foundation announced their partnership with The Vice Wines and their limited edition “Tri Blend” luxury wine, and we could not be more excited about it! To help get you as excited as we are, we are inviting you to a private virtual wine tasting with the founder and winemaker, Mr. Malek Amrani

On June 17 at 5p.m. (PT), join Mr. Amrani as he walks us through an experiential and educational evening about The Vice Wines and the Tri Blend. Learn about the inspiration behind the blend, the process of selecting each varietal and the best ways to enjoy and taste the wine. 

Also joining the wine tasting are special guests, Katie Zafares, 2019 ITU World Series Champion, 2016 Olympian and the inspiration behind the Tri Blend and Amy Dixon Paralympic National Team athlete, Tokyo Paralympic hopeful and sommelier. 

“The Tri” is a blend of 16% Petite Sirah, 54% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Franc. The inspiration behind the precise blending is the percentage of total race time spent on each distance – swim, bike, run – by Zaferes en route to her victory at the 2019 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Lausanne, but also racing in the age group world championship with his fellow Team USA members.

There is NO charge to register for the wine tasting. All that you will need is a bottle of the Tri Blend which can be purchased below. 

Interested in joining us for this special evening? Register NOW. 

To be able to participate in the Virtaul Wine Tasting you will need a bottle of the Tri Blend.

As a USA Triathlon Member you receive 25% off your purchase while using code: USAT25

All proceeds of the Tri Blend are donated back to the USA Triathlon Foundation.

ITU World Triathlon Series Yokohama

Three Americans on the podium and a third straight World Triathlon Series (WTS) victory for Katie Zaferes (Santa Cruz, Calif.) made it an incredible weekend for the USA Triathlon women in Yokohama. Summer Rappaport (Thornton, Colo.) earned silver for the second WTS medal of her career, while Taylor Spivey (Redondo Beach, Calif.) continued her impressive 2019 season with a bronze medal to help the red, white and blue round out the podium. It was the fourth U.S. podium sweep in ITU World Triathlon Series history and the first since 2016.

With a perfect start to 2019 — securing wins in Abu Dhabi, Bermuda and Yokohama — Zaferes has a commanding lead in the WTS Standings with 3,000 points. Spivey is tied with Great Britain’s Jessica Learmouth for second with 2,458 points. Rappaport is now in seventh after her podium finish.

Tamara Gorman (Rapid City, S.D.) was the fourth American to crack the top 10 in the women’s field, finishing ninth overall.

Morgan Pearson (Boulder, Colo.) was the top U.S. finisher on the men’s side, placing 15th overall. France’s Vincent Luis broke the tape.
