We Have a Winnner

Building on their success in the Swim Session, the Alaska Tri Club Red Biting Bunnies pulled off another win in January's Bike Session. Again besting arch-rivals the Tri Club of San Diego, the Bunnies broke the tape literally just ahead of their southern California opponents. 

Alaska TC RBB's hit the 10,000 mile mark on January 13 at 7:15 AM Alaska Time. 
Tri Club of San Diego were right behind, logging their 10,000 on the same day (!) at 10:38 Pacific Time. Close!

Congratulations to both clubs for putting in such a huge effort. 

The benchmarks for each session have gone up each year of the competition, since many clubs seemed to easily reach them in each past year. This year as of this writing only 2 clubs have surpassed the 10,000 mile mark, but one more (the other Alaska team, the White Wabid Wabbits) is poised to reach it any day now, and with half the month still to go there are three more teams (Hammerhead, DC Tri and Buffalo) who have a realistic shot at 10,000 miles.

Happy riding, everyone! Warm weather is on the way!
