The Lake Mills Triathlon kicks off the 2014 Wisconsin Triathlon Series! This sprint distance race is a wonderful introductory event for beginner racers and the flat, fast course provides a competitive atmosphere for experience racers after a PR. Each athlete will receive a technical t-shirt, a safe course with an experience water safety team on the swim marked by large highly-visible buoys. Pre-race water and post-race refreshments will be served.
The course will be accurately measured and well-marked, and the race will be chip-timed by SMA timing. Transition will be secure and professional bike SAG will be provided by Trek Bicycles in transition and out on the course.
A pre-race clinic from a local pro triathlete and/or USAT certified coaches will be announced closer to race day.
Throughout the season, the series scoring will be tracked on Athlinks, and at each race you will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a Trek Speed Concept bike at the end of the series.
