Despite some very cold and rainy conditions, NEMS members showed their mental toughness at Mooseman on June 2nd and 3rd. The conditions were extra cold and there was a solid down pour for the International distance race on Saturday. Quite a few competitors were forced to pull out of the competition, but it not did stop any of the NorthEast MultiSport members. Zuzana Trnovcova took 2nd in female 25-29 age group, Chris Veilleux took 3rd in the male 30-34 age group, Karin Chen and Kristina Homoleski both took 4th in their respective age groups.
The weather started out a bit wet on Sunday for the Half Ironman distance race. However, the conditions turned to respectable by the time most competitors were on the bike. The slow conditions did not help the overall times for this already extremely difficult and hilly course. Nonetheless, the NEMS relay team of Colin Cook (swim), Greg Indruk (bike), and Chris Poulos (run) were able to win the relay competition. On the individual side, Floyd Kemske took 3rd in the 65-69 age group, while Andrew Levine, Chad Quinlan, Josh Cleland, and Mikael Taveniku all did an excellent job competing this challenging race and finishing in very respectable times.
Here is some video from the action over the weekend:
Way to go guys!
