Sad news this week as junior Tyler Smith broke his arm on Tuesday. Tyler was due to compete in the Youth Olympic Games Triathlon Qualifier on May 2nd in Monterrey, Mexico. Tyler told me he did not require surgery and will have the cast off in 4 to 6 weeks. I am sure we all wish him a speedy recovery even if he will beat up on everyone when he races again !! Hopefully the ITU will allow him a spot in the Youth Olympic Games without racing the Qualifier.
Alex Pilgrim is going to be doing the Richmond VA USAT Youth Elite Cup race on 2/3 May (draft legal). It is one of the 3 qualifiers for for the USAT Youth National Championships in August. He is currently competing in the CARIFTA Swimming Championships in Aruba. A busy lad !!
