The team has participated in a handful of Team Magic events over the years, but never made it up to Montgomery, AL as a team for this event. A group of nine team members toed the line for the competitive and fun event. One of those team members was Erik who shares his thoughts on the day:
"This was my second year racing the Capital Of Dreams Triathlon so I kind of knew what to expect. There are a couple things that make this race unique to me. The old train station transition area and the river boat swim start. Race day weather was cool, light wind, and overcast. After the sprint racers took off it was our turn to start the Olymic-distance swim. The swim is downriver with good sighting. The bike course is flat and fast. I passed the lead cyclist around the mile 20 mark so I had a police escort for the last 4 miles. I felt good coming out of T2, but remembered how hilly the run course was from the year before. I knew it was going to be a tough run. Overall this is a fun race and I look forward to racing it in the future!"
Many thanks to the race directorship and staff, volunteers, event sponsors, City of Montgomery, and law enforcement for making this a good outing for all participants. Chain Tri Team looks forward a couple other upcoming Team Magic events this season: Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon (06/23/19) and Alabama Coastal Triathlon (09/07/19)!
And, as always, many thanks to the team sponsors for their continued support: Pro Cycle, The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., Heart O' Dixie Triathlon
