Tecumseh Triathlon

A brief synopsis on today’s race:


Some might not have me on Facebook so this video may not make much sense. The back story is that a friend (Ol’ Prak) and I had a competition at a local triathlon. If he finished within 13% of my time he would get to shave my moustache off at the finish line. If I beat him by 13% he would have to grow his moustache for 2 months. Here is the flyer he created for the event:

There then became a bet within a bet when Ol’ Prak informed everyone that my intention was to try and hold 48kph on the bike for the 32k bike ride. Some of the bets placed were:

  1. If I held 48kph for even one lap of the two lap course they would shave their forearms.
  2. If I held 47kph for the ride they would grow their moustache for all of XC season i.e. until the second week of November.
  3. If I held 48kph they would tape my moustache trimmings to their face and wear them until the end of August.

Here is the Garmin file from the ride:

Needless to say, many bets were lost this day.

  1. As always Lionel you make Triathlon look easy and fun. Very tongue in cheek reporting. Thanks Erin for keeping us all in the loop. Can anyone take the ‘stache’?!
