This long time classic triathlon continues to be a popular stop on the Ontario race calendar. The added bonus of witnessing athletes race in Retro Gear is another big draw.
Fresh off a pair of huge wins on the 70.3 series, Recharge With Milk Ambassador Team member Lionel Sanders, was third out of the water behind fellow Ambassador Team members, Angela Quick and Alexander Vanderlinden. In typical Sanders fashion, he grabbed control of the race with a 40:55 ride, and ran a race best 2015 to clinch the win in 1:18:26.
