A few athletes at yesterday’s Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon uploaded parts of their race to Strava for public viewing.
Curious to see how top finishers ride the Alcatraz course? The majority of pro athletes don’t share their specific training or racing data on social media, but a few athletes at yesterday’s Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon uploaded parts of their race to Strava for public viewing.
Winner Eric Lagerstrom, who bested Andy Potts in a finish-line sprint, uploaded his bike data, which shows the downhill-lover maxed out at 48.1 mph at some point during the ride, and his power (measured by his Pioneer power meter) was a weighted average of 304 watts.
Third-place men’s pro Kevin Collington posted his bike leg, of which he described: “Basically rode myself back into the race after a sub-par swim. Backed it up with a good run for 3rd!”
On the age group side, the second-place amateur and 9th place overall finisher Yoni Doron-Peters, who races for the dominant men’s team Every Man Jack, uploaded each segment of his entire race.
Although they didn’t post yesterday’s races, second-place female finisher Lauren Goss is also active in uploading her training, as well as last year’s second-place finisher in Kona (and 7th at Alcatraz), Ben Hoffman.
