Jennie Hansen defended her title, while Jordan Monnink secured the overall win after finishing second twice before at the 4th Annual Rev3 Niagara Falls Barrelman, presented by Keystone Communications.
Defending champion, Alex VanderLinden led men (25:46) out of the calm waters of the Welland International Flatwater Centre. During the bike, Monnink caught up to VanderLinden, and both rode together for the majority of the 86 km bike course (shortened due to road construction). Within the final kilometres of the bike course, Daniel Clarke charged to the front and entered T2 first with the top ride of 2:02:59. Clarke, Monnink, and VanderLinden headed out on the 21.1 km course together, as the temperatures rose, setting the stage for a great men’s battle. Monnink eventually took control of the race and finished with the top run of 1:22:30 to claim his first Barrelman title after placing second in 2016, and 2015.
Monnink swam 28:00, biked 2:05:06, and ran a race best 1:22:30 to finish in 3:58:33.
Rev3 Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon (2 km swim, 86 km bike, 21.1 km run)
Top 5 Men
Just like in 2016, Sheila Treleaven led the swim (26:26). Miranda Tomenson, second out of the water (28:43), made her way to the front of the race and entered T2 first with a ride of 2:18:26 (Paolina Allan had the top women’s ride of 2:14:11). But no one was going to stop the defending champion. Hansen passed Treleaven for the lead at the halfway mark of the run and closed with the women’s best run of 1:26:22 to defend her title.
Hansen swam 31:14, rode 2:19:08, and ran a race best 1:26:22 to finish in 4:20:35.
Rev3 Niagara Falls Barrelman Triathlon (2 km swim, 86 km bike, 21.1 km run)
Top 5 Women
Fire and Ice (Jessey The Elf, Phillip McCatty, and Evan Maiko) won the Relay event and had the fastest overall time on the day (3:50:50) thanks to a 25:30 swim, 2:08:43 bike, and 1:14:38 run.
James McNaughton of Sudbury, ON (2:35:59) and Amy Javens of Hermitage, PA (2:53:09) won the Swim/Bike race. Toronto’s Peter Schindler (3:38:37) and Alexandra Bade (4:26:19) won the Bike/Run race.
Over 1000 athletes participated in the 4th annual Rev3 Niagara Falls Barrelman on Sunday September 17, the largest ever for the event.

By Tim Doris 2017 Multisport Canada Ambassador
An approach to training that works for me, sometimes!
We are all busy with work commitments, family commitments, and extra-curricular activities which in my family are competitive dance, rep. soccer, and baseball, and of course my own training.
The most important thing that I have learned this past year is to schedule my workouts and try to stick to them. This has allowed me to be more consistent with my training and to log a significant amount of running and riding during the winter months. Read more
BARRIE, ONTARIO (February 28, 2017) – MultiSport Canada (MSC) is excited to announce a partnership with STAC Performance for the 2017 triathlon season. STAC Performance is the perfect training partner for the avid triathlete. Initially funded through Kickstarter, the STAC Zero bike trainer is designed to be completely silent and easy on your tires.
Instead of using a flywheel and roller to push up against your back wheel or a direct drive system, the STAC Zero uses magnets to create resistance. Two neodymium magnets are placed either side the rim — which needs to be alloy — and as the wheel spins they create resistance.
“STAC Performance, creator of the STAC Zero silent trainer, is proud to join the Skechers Triathlon Series as a sports technology sponsor”, said STAC Performance CEO Andrew Buckrell. “STAC is looking forward to working with MSC to develop new training and racing technologies to help racers of all levels.”
STAC Performance will be onsite at all Skechers MSC races this summer. The year’s race series will take place on the following dates: June 24/25 (Rose City), July 15/16 (Gravenhurst), August 6 (Kingston), August 12/13 (Bracebridge), August 19/20 (Toronto Island), August 26 (Wasaga Beach) and September 9/10 (Lakeside).
