Bockel, Dye, Stoltz earn wins


blueseventy athletes dominated a few races this weekend.  Here is a summary of our accomplishments:

Dirk Bockel won the 2013 edition of Challenge Roth.   Challenge Roth is the Challenge organization's biggest race and Roth Germany supports it like France does the Tour de France.  Dirk out-raced a star-studded field.  Winning Roth is world renown accomplishment and Bockel added further notoriety by finishing in 7:52 - one of the fastest in history.  Fellow blueseventy athlete Dylan McNeise (NZL) was 1st out of the water in Roth.  blueseventy was at the front all day.

At the Lifetime Fitness Minneapolis event - delayed and shortened by a thick storm delivering heavy rains - Cam Dye from stormed through to win.  Alicia Kaye also topped the women's podium using our PZ3tx in the swim.  Leading out of the water was Sara McLarty also a blueseventy ambassador donning our swimskin.

Multiple time Xterra World Champ Conrad Stoltz won the ITU cross World Championship held in the Netherlands.  "Cross" is basically the ITU classification of an off-road triathlon.  Swim, mtn bike and trail run.  This is Conrad's 3rd ITU title at this event!

A few more podiums, Aussie Kate Bevilaqua showed great summer form finishing 2nd at the Muncie 70.3 in Indiana and typically racing ITU events Nicky Samuels took a detour and grabbed 2nd on the podium at non-drafting 5150 Boulder.  

At Vineman 70.3 in California John Dahlz led out of the swim in the men's race surrounded by 3 more blueseventy athletes within 10 seconds.  Lots of blueseventy at the sharp end of the swim - we wish we were there with a camera to capture it!
