I thought that this post would be the 300th post on the PTC blog, and I thought it would be fitting that it dealt with ITU Racing and Junior Provincials. Unfortunately, I read the counter wrong, and the Wipeout post was the 300th. Maybe that's equally fitting.
Saturday is the Coteau-du-Lac Triathlon which serves as one of only two ITU Pan Am Cups in Canada this year. Before the elites hit the water, the top juniors in Canada will toe the line in the 2nd Junior National Series race of the year. This race has a little extra meaning for the Ontario crowd, as it's serving as Ontario Provincials, our final Canada Games Qualifier, and the Eastern Canadian Junior Championships.
I'll be on site at 2:30pm Friday for a pre-race bike/run, followed by the Junior Pre-Race Meeting (4:00pm) and Elite Pre-Race Meeting (5:00pm). I'll also be on site all day Saturday to support Ontario athletes in both junior and elite races.
By Saturday afternoon, we'll crown our 2009 Junior Provincial Champions, and we hope to have the Canada Games team named by Monday afternoon.
Looking forward to a great day of racing on Saturday. Go Ontario!
