This could be one of the busiest weeks of the year at TriSports.com Retail Store thanks to a few large local events:
EL TOUR DE TUCSON – El Tour is one of the largest cycling events in the United States. I believe this year they are expecting about 8,000 cyclists from all around the world.
IRONMAN ARIZONA – About 100 miles from Tucson up in Tempe, Ironman Arizona has turned into one of the more competitive late season, post-Kona Ironman races.
It is looking like we will have near perfect weather for both events this weekend. Expecting a high of 77 degrees (and sunny) here in Tucson on Saturday and 75 degrees (and sunny) up in Tempe on Sunday. This is the time of year to be loving on the Southwest. Good luck to all cyclists and triathletes participating and racing this coming weekend. TriSports.com has several employees entered in both events as well.
It is great to be surrounded by so many athletes who have prepared many days, weeks and months for these events. There is alwasys a buzz around the shop this time of year even with it being so late in the season. It is a great way to wrap up the race season before we hit another season… the holiday season (yikes!).
