A great weekend for racing and training–gotta love the stormy weather! CC athletes competed in a wide variety of events this past weekend, but we’d like to congratulate Patrick Haenel (pictured second from left) for his race at the Galveston 70.3 in Texas. Patrick finished in a nice 5:10 and took 3rd place in his AG. This qualified him for the 70.3 World Championships to be held in Austria later this summer. Patrick has only been at this sport for a couple of seasons now, but has shown rock steady improvement all the way!
