2015-2016 Season Wrap Up

posted Apr 30, 2016, 1:48 PM by Oredigger Classic   [ updated May 1, 2016, 9:00 AM ]

So this whole news thing has to start somewhere, so we're going to start it up at the end of this year's collegiate season. For the first time in the history of ever, CSM sent a full men's team and 2 women to the Collegiate National Championships in Clemson, SC. That's right, 7 whole people represented the club at nationals. And as would be expected, they did damn well. For the combined male and female team scores, we placed 41st out of 132 schools from across the country! And, we managed that without having anybody in either draft legal race, and with only 2 women to score points. In the men's only competition, we came in 21st overall, and with half a team of women, we still pulled off 69th! hah 69... Results can be found over on the race results page. All in all, not at all shabby for our first year as an official club sport, and we'll be looking to build on that in the years to come. Watch out Boulder.
The collegiate season being over doesn't necessarily mark the end of the tri season, though. For many of our members, it's barely the beginning. Here's where you can watch out for CSM trihards this summer:
Nick Klonne will be taking a trip or two back to his home state of Minnesota to go crush it back at sea level in some Olympic and Sprint distance racing, then hopefully will do well at USAT Age Group Nattys in Omaha in August, and then is looking to cap the season off with a performance at Harvest Moon Half in September.
KC Kent has been pretty lame and spending a lot of time on the bike without swimming before or running after. However, she's been doing quite well in cycling races and is looking to carry that momentum into the summer. Then, in September she's heading over to Australia for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships where she plans on crushing it. No big deal...
Steve Dahlke is taking some time away from the great state of Minnesota as well, and plans on racing a bunch up in Boulder. Tri Boulder, Boulder Sunset, and the new and improved Harvest Moon, to be specific.
Jeffrey Nichols is heading is leaving the US to do some racing in the country of Texas, where he's going to smash the Texas Man X-50. Later in the fall, he'll return to CO and go head to head with Steve and Nick at Harvest Moon.
David Herman is also going to try his hand at sea-level races, with plans to head out to New York and race a HITS Series Olympic distance race in July.
Elisa Vincentelli Brons will be staying local to crush the Unbroken 10k in Denver.
Keep an eye on this page, and hopefully we can keep you updated with photos and results of our fabulous members!

Uniforms are Here!

And if you haven't bought one yet, you still can! They are made by Primal, and are probably going to be really fast, incredibly comfy, and will definitely make you look like a superhero. $110 if you are a team member, $140 if you're not. (Hint: it's $20 to join the team, anyone can join, and almost anyone can do that math). Next time you see someone out there in their new Mines digs, give them some love!

We're going to Nationals!

Over the last weekend, three Mines Triathlon Club women traveled to Lake Havasu, Arizona to compete in the Mountain Collegiate Triathlon Conference Regional Championships. Out of the nine teams in attendance, Mines finished in fifth, solidifying three spots in the USAT Collegiate Triathlon Nationals. This is the first time Mines has sent any women to Nationals, hopefully the first time of many! Information about the National Championship can be found here:

KC Kent, Lauren Lundquist, and Tess Weathers will be representing Mines on April 5th. They will be competing in the Olympic distance race in Tempe, Arizona.

Inaugural Oredigger Indoor Triathlon a Success

posted Oct 12, 2009, 5:35 PM by Tess Weathers   [ updated Nov 20, 2013, 6:00 PM ]

On November 3rd, the CSM Tri Club hosted an indoor triathlon for Parents' and Family Weekend

Twenty-nine participants completed the first-ever Oredigger Indoor Classic Triathlon. The race was held at the CSM Student Recreation Center and was part of Parents' and Family Weekend. The event consisted of a 10 minute swim, 25 minute spin bike session, and 20 minute run on the indoor track. Standings were determined by total distance covered. First time triathletes, family relay teams, and experienced athletes showed up to support the School of Mines Foundation. Volunteers from our club, the CSM Cycling Team, APO, and World Bicycle Relief helped make the event run smoothly. We hope this event becomes a tradition!

New Uniforms from Primal

We are ordering custom tri suits from Primal! We want to get the order out before the end of Fall semester. We are going to get a few sizing samples in the next couple weeks, so if you'd like to check out the quality or try to figure out your size, stay tuned! The cost will be around $120, but it will be a great investment if you want to continue with multisport activities.
