Subject: Mountain Man 70.3 bike course?
I was wondering if anyone who has done this race in the past has the course data saved somewhere so I can check it out...I'm heading up to Flag this weekend and I'm planning on doing the bike route, but I'm not 100% sure of the course. I can't find a map on their website. If anyone has the data available it would be greatly appreciated...

i don't have the map, but it's a simple course if you know the area.

Start at transition (lower lake mary parking lot). the course consists of 2 laps. head south down lake mary rd and turn right to make a loop around Mormon Lake. During the first lap, you add on a little out and back once you get around Mormon Lake and back onto Lake Mary. I think it is about a 4 mile stretch. Now fly downhill and back to transition.

Second loop is almost the same, except don't do the out and back at the top of Mormon Lake.

If you just did the Mormon Lake loop and back to transition twice, you'll get a great feel for the course and could then just add in whatever additional miles you wanted.

I agree with Tom - this is an easy course to ride, as you park and start at Lake Mary, then just ride out to the first Mormon Lake turnoff, ride the circle around Mormon Lake, then back down the main road and do the circle again before heading back to Lake Mary.

That little out and back after the first circle is a little irrelevant, and I cannot remember it being too hilly, either, so it poses no real additional learning for you (but you are always free to ride out a few miles and come back, just to say you did it).

Looking at my Training Peaks map from last year, you should hit the main road at about mile 19.25 (the completion of the first Mormon Lake circle), so if you turn right for the out and back, you would ride out about 2 miles, then turn around and head back for the second Mormon Lake loop.

Go to the Mt. Man website. It has the course mapped out for you. Thank goodness we don't have to climb that hill at the end of Mormon Lake loop. We get to fly down it instead. Yay!

I will be up there July 22-Aug.6th training.

If you are a person who feels safer on the trails rather than the road, but you still want to race, this article will help you better train.

Another year, another excuse in missing the Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens triathlon.

I read somewhere about "bar ends" to put on your handle bars, do you recommend them? Is this similar to adding clip on aero bars?

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.

Well I said that I was not going to do it this season, but I cracked. I broke down and bought a new bike. I went out and bought a shiny new Cannondale road bike.

So after about 10,000 emails, dozens of phone calls, and one pre-race pasta dinner, the 1st meeting of the Steve's in a triathlon finally arrived.
