Weekend Update: USA Duathlon Nationals and Coastal Cyclist Century

It was a fun weekend in Greenville for Brian, Josh and Sarah. All 3 participated at the USA Duathlon Nationals. Each raced in the Draft-Legal Sprint on Saturday and the Non-drafting Standard on Sunday. The sprint consisted of a 5k run, 18k bike, 2.85k run and the standard was a
8.45k run, 39k bike, 4.5k run. While Sarah raced last year, this was the first time for the guys. All 3 reported back that it was a great experience.

Sarah used the sprint race as a warm-up for Duathlon World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain in 2 weeks. She also brought home a podium spot on Saturday- placing 3rd in her AG and thus qualifying again for the Draft-Legal Sprint World Championships 2020.

She also PR’ed Sunday’s standard distance by 3 minutes. It was a great weekend for her!

AND ALL THREE finished the weekend strong on Sunday qualifying for Worlds for the Standard distance! Looks like Team AMEC will be representing in the Netherlands in 2020!

Meanwhile, back in Charleston, the Coastal Cyclist’s Spring Century brought out many of our athletes to ride. Aimee, Alexis, Melissa, Robin and Sandra took to the streets and did awesome. It was Alexis’ first ever 100 miler and she killed it. Congrats to all!
