Two of our customers have been reaping the benefits of a long hard winter of training. Each has had wins in their spring triathlon campaigns. Local favorite Dave Stubbs turned in an impressive win at Rumpus in Bumpass Olympic distance triathlon and Sue DeJesus with an age group win in her FIRST full Ironman at Ironman Texas.
Triathlon Race Results
Exactly a year prior to Dave’s win at Rumpus in Bumpass he was getting back on his bike after a horrific crash due to a wheel failure. But with perseverance and hard work, Dave eased his way back into winning form. Dave is one of those athletes that has a huge engine but with a focused training, consistent training plan his hard work pays HUGE dividends.
As one of our elite fitting customer we were even more excited to hear that he turned in the FASTEST bike split of the day!
I cannot imagine how much faster he will get as we make the final tweaks to his fit.
If you have hung around the shop at all over the last year and a half, you’ve probably run into VeloConcepts customer and Shop Ambassador Sue DeJesus. While being famous in her own right for being ranked number 1 in the world for her age group, her success only comes with extensive hard work & dedication. I have witnessed that first hand as I’ve marveled at her 3+ hour rides on the trainer as she prepared for her first full-length IRONMAN
Her hard work definitely paid off as she came away came away with a super impressive age group WIN at IRONMAN Texas.
This win netted Sue a coveted qualifying spot in the IRONMAN World Championship race in Kona. Be sure to read more about Sue’s race in her always inspiring race recap report.
