Hello Colorado, Utah, NM, AZ, & WY Athletes,

Anyone coming out to Grand Junction Sept 13 & 14th??? Sure hope you can make it out. The Desert Edge Sprint, Off Road, & Olympic Triathlon is a weekend packed full of fun, racing, & volunteering opportunities. Highline Lake is beautiful and calm, nothing like biking through miles of farm lands, & the off road trail is smooth & fast. Camping is available & downtown Fruita has all your immediate needs. Don't miss out on $1,000 Cash Prizes, a fantastic end of the season tri, & an electrified atmosphere of fans, family & fun!!!

Ask me questions or let me know if I can help out at all.
Cheers

I wanted to do the off-road this year, but I had free registration to Bear It All after it was cancelled last year. I wish that they didn't end up scheduling for the same weekend. I will be in Fruita next year.

I'm racing in Albuquerque that weekend but for sure considering next year. I did Deserts edge last year (or maybe it was 2012) and it was a fun course (a bit chilly tho)

Chilly is right! Did the race last year and froze my zzz off on the swim! Great race though and it warmed up for the bike and run! Unfortunately can't make it out this year.

Our new September date should help with the cold. The last water temp I received was 76 - 78 degrees, depending on location. The swim should be at least 10 degrees warmer than last year. Air temp should be warmer, too! We are excited about the 2014 event!!!

This weekend will be beautiful out here in Grand Junction!!! A wetsuit will be perfect for Highline Lake, the fields are an amazing green after all the rain this summer, & the trails are in epic shape for running. Bring the family, plan on eating dinner at the Hot Tomato Pizza Joint, & remember to thank a volunteer. Bring your A Game folks & enjoy.


Cheers
