Force 5 Annual Triathlon and Picnic Sunday – 7th edition – August 11th at 10:00 am

We are hoping everyone of you can attend and bring your families as well, so please get us a head count.
Scott and Carli have generously agreed to host this amazing event again…here are the details:
The Picnic…. Refreshments and picnic after the race, at Scott and Carli’s house, all are invited! The Team will provide grilling food, drinks, beer and snacks and prizes. 
We are counting on all that offered to bring a appetizer, side dish, salad or desert of some sort, to complement the store bought food.
Bring chairs… and remember be careful and have fun with this race, the bike course will be open to traffic.
The Race…Meet at Scott Casper’s house, at 18 Pawson Road, Branford, then walk down the the transition area at the beach to set up. Race will start at 10:00 am.
The swim will be about a quarter mile – ( 3/4) mile, the bike will be one loop of the Hammerfest bike course, (backwords), about 7 miles, and the run will be about 2.5 miles of the Hammerfest run course (in Pawson Park), also.
Remember the race is Handicapped, with everyone starting at different intervals so all can participate and hopefully finish with a close finish at the line. Make sure to let me know if you have any injuries so I can build them into the starting times.
Teams are welcome, form whatever combination you want…

KC’s Pub is One of Our Sponsors

KC’s Pub is pleased to be a continued sponsor of the Force 5 Racing Team and
will continue with a 10% discount to members for 2011. I spoke to my daughter
and not everyone takes advantage of this. Those of you that do (John) have had
some nice savings on good food and cold drinks! Please check out our website on
a regular basis to see what’s happening: For any of you older
age groupers who don’t like late nights, I have convinced Kelly to get a Jazz
band in there this Friday from 7-10pm. Since it’s Valentines day weekend, we
will be have a Lobster dinner for two (or add Prime rib to make it surf and
turf). So come listen to some smooth Jazz and get some carbs and protein in
before your long weekend workouts (you guys are going long already aren’t you)!

Changing a Flat Tire

Knowing how to perform a quick tire change is important for any competitive triathlete. Whether it’s to get back on the road to resume your training ride or to limit your time losses on race day, it’s a worthwhile skill to practice and perfect.
