Ironman 70.3 Racine
In the other race of the day, it was the other veteran and Ironman 70.3 World Champ that didn't get the win for the veteran trifecta! Not only did Craig Alexander not win, 3 age group triathletes finished ahead of him at today's Ironman 70.3 Racine triathlon. He end the day in 12th place overall. It was Marko Albert going point-to-point for the win ahead of Aleander and a good group of pro men triathletes.

Racing in her home state, Jessica Jacobs started off on the wrong foot, being 6 minutes behind Dede Griesbauer. It was her patience that helped her get things back in order, chasing the lead. She ended the day with the fastest bike split of the day but that wasn't just enough. She had run down Griesbauer on the run to capture the win today. The irony is, she finishes ahead of Dede by 6 minutes.
