At Dig It Triathlon and Mulitsport, we coach athletes with goals and events of all sorts. Fall is a great chance for those who bike race to get muddy and have fun with cyclocross. Dig It's crossers are off and riding/running to great success. Dan's been throwing down in Maryland taking his first two races with strong wins and an upgrade to Cat 2 in the next few races.

Above Dan on the podium sporting some great socks, hint, they say Dig It on them:) Matthew's jumped up a few racing categories and is holding his own amongst some strong athletes. Fall is a great time to have fun on two wheels, and the Dig It crew is off to a great start this cross season.

While cyclocross is fun for some athletes, the off season is upon many others. For all, Coach Jason shares thoughts on what makes a good off season.

What in the multisport world could outshine USAT Nationals? Not much but Duathlon Worlds gave it a go. Dig It athletes were there to excel at both.

Above the transition area at USAT nationals in Wisconsin. That's one deep race, all those bikes to be powered by the best triathletes in the US.

Marcus and Travis rocked it and Marcus culminated a great season with a great 3rd place in his AG.

Jenn was awesome at duathlon worlds with a great 5th place in her AG that would have been a medal in all other of the women's AGs. We'd be speechless if it wasn't for getting to know these great athletes and their amazing work along the way to these great results.

August 5

While we've let too much time pass since our last update, the great news for Dig It athletes continues to roll along. With great placings at triathlons across Minnesota and the nation, this racing season is a testament to dedication from athlete and coach bringing great results.

With a prior year podium, Marcus got to race Heart of the Lakes Tri with numero uno. He ended a great race as the top amateur and 2nd overall doing the number and everone else proud. Watch out nationals, here comes Marcus among others.

What set this past weekend apart from those in preceeding weeks? Well there were 3 days of racing opportunities, otherwise, it's been the same story across 2013. Races took place and Dig It athletes met and exceeded their goals. At the Apple Duathlon, Dig It athletes all earned their sought after worlds qualifications. Matthew rocked the Memorial Day Omnium.

The Dig It Tri gang has been throwing down great performances across the US this spring and having some fun in the process.

From Dan rocking some great bike races in Maryland, earning an upgrade in the process, to Matthew in MN who's placing great in his debut road racing season as well.

The Boston Marathon tragedy was awful and the great marathons of Dig It's athletes really are a minor part of the day. We continue to try to help as we can those affected.

In MN, the racing has been cold and gross across the board. That hasn't meant anything less than great performances from Dig It athletes with mutliple placings at the Oakdale Duathlon and Marcus winning his first triathlon of the year.

Below is a pic of Jenn as she went for one of her 3 duathlon wins for far in 2013. 3 races, 3 wins...

If the summer looked like it couldn't get better for the Dig It gang, it surely has. Tony rocked a big PR at the IM distance, and that's after having a new son join the family over the winter, Travis keeps going longer and faster on the bike, having finished some major long rides, and Marcus has started a win streak in MN that's up to 2 races and counting.
