The Alamo Tri Series: Racers Get Ready to Rocket through Central Texas
Rocket Science Sports, an Austin, TX company, is the proud swim sponsor of the second annual Tri-Sition Area Alamo Tri Series.
Rocket Science Sports, an Austin, TX company, is the proud swim sponsor of the second annual Tri-Sition Area Alamo Tri Series. The series promotes healthy lifestyles through multisports activities and is set to begin the first of its six races with a super sprint tri on May 1s in San Antonio. Those participating in the series will get a fine tour of central Texas throughout the season with courses in San Marcos, Boerne, and New Braunfels. The grand finale, an Olympic distance tri, is set for October 2nd at Canyon Lake, TX.
The series’ sponsors are looking forward to the events, where triathletes from all over gather for competition. Last year’s series was a great success, and Rocket Science wants to help make the Alamo Tri a tradition for the athletic community.
Marco Garsed, owner of Tri-Sition Area, the leading tri store in the San Antonio area, exclaims: “We are excited about this partnership with RSS and to be able to associate the series with a brand that is recognized as a leader in equipment across the globe, but that is still proud to be involved in the community where it has its roots!”
Committed to triathletes, Rocket Science Sports uses a unique approach to designing gear based on the application of engineering concepts and detailed scientific research. Its CEO, Marcin Sochacki, is a graduate of UT-Austin. He uses his education in aerospace science to develop products that are designed to maximize aero and hydro dynamics, durability, and efficiency.
“We are committed to improving the sport by creating products that help athletes achieve performance goals” says Sochacki. “We are continually seeking to exceed industry standards.” Recently, FINA approved ten Rocket Science swimsuits for use in its competitions.
This Year’s Race Line-up:
The season’s first race, the Windcrest Freshman Triathlon, is designed to warm-up the experienced athlete or get beginner triathlete’s feet wet. To begin, the 200m swim will be in a snake-style pool. Next, the curvy bike course is a 10-mile, 2-loop circular path. Last, the race ends with a scenic 2-mile run circling the golf course.
The second and third race, the Tri it in Spanish Triathlon and the River Ranch Triathlon, respectively, take place at the River Ranch Ski Community in San Marcos. The 300m/400m swim in a clear, 75-80 degree ski lake is easy to maneuver. The 19K/22.5K, bike course is out and back on a gently rolling country road, and a paved, flat, 3.2K/5K loop finishes the race.
The Gator Bait Tri takes place in August in Boerne, TX. The race honors its namesake--the 7ft alligator killed at Boerne Lake in 2008. It features a 500m out and back in the lake. Then a 13-mile out and back with a final hill entitled the “Heartbreak Hill.” And to finish things up, is a 5K out and back on a paved road.
The Wurst Tri Ever will take place at Landa Park in scenic New Braunfels, TX. First is a 150m snake-style swim in a clear spring pool, which leads to a 250m Olympic pool swim. The 14-mile bike course is hilly and beautiful. This race ends with a 3-mile loop through a neighborhood and along the golf course.
The TX Tri is the last in the series and takes place at Canyon Lake, TX. Athletes will compete in the beautiful Texas hill country. The 1500m swim is in Canyon Lake with temperatures estimated at 70-80 degrees. A 42K bike course is a challenging course with many inclines. Finally, runners will complete a 9.5K double loop with one hill.
