Subject: Puget Sound area racing: New RDs for BuDu Racing events

As some of you may know, Rory and Deanna Muller, owners of BuDu Racing, are retiring from all aspects of their business. They have broken up BuDu Racing into different functions and sold them, and up until recently, the portion of their business that put on the multi-sport events Mt. Rainier Duathlon, Bonney Lake Triathlon, and Lake Stevens Triathlon, remained unsold.

After much discussion at home, and with Rory and Deanna, my wife and I have worked out the purchase of these events, and we are forming a new company, Trio Multi Sport, LLC. It was announced to a gathering of BuDu friends, volunteers, and sponsors yesterday.

Who are we? I am Dave Tollefson, long-time triathlete, bike racer, runner, and more recently a sponsor of BuDu Racing’s multi-sport series through my bike framebuilding business. I have known Rory Muller since well before BuDu Racing was formed, when we were rivals (and often break-mates) in the local bike racing scene. My wife, Lisa, has competed in triathlon and running events, and more importantly worked directly with BuDu Racing as an employee, race timer, and event day volunteer over the last 12 years. We’re not going into this completely blind.

We will also be working side-by-side with Rory and Deanna throughout the 2023 race season to ensure that we can, as much as possible, duplicate the winning formula that the multi-sport community has come to expect from their events.

We look forward to continuing the tradition of these events, to bringing our own energy to the multi-sport community through Trio Multi Sport, LLC, and eventually expanding into more, and unique, events on the calendar.

Look for the Facebook page and website to go live soon.

Mt Rainier Duathlon will be on May 7th, 2023
Bonney Lake Triathlon will be on September 2nd, 2023
Lake Stevens Triathlon will be on September 9th, 2023

I wish you the very best with your RD endeavors and hope you continue to enjoy it. Thanks for providing the needed service.

A bit far for me, but if I have any change to make it somehow...I will...
