TRITONS WELCOME NEW SPONSORS — Rudy Project & Roc-N-Sol Optical!
Rudy Project is the Club’s Official Eyewear & Helmet Supplier.
RJ Arena of Roc-N-Sol Optical introduced the 2009 Rudy Project product line to the Club at our Triton Winter Camp.  Members were psyched with the news of the sponsorship and the product line.  Tritons can now purchase “Technically Cool Eyewear” and helmets at Roc-N-Sol, with a 40% discount off MSRP.  Nice.

QUOTABLE, On His Triton MultiRider & CompuTrainer Experience @ Crossfit 4800!
“Every time I go to the MultiRider session, I come home jacked.  I’ve been talking about it all day (my wife finally told me to change the subject).  Not only is the CompuTrainer key, but Aubrey is making those sessions mean something – rather than just spinning.  Yeah, we are blessed this year, Art!  Thinking about what I went through last winter … besides, we’ll be amazing cyclists come summer.” – Anonymous Triton, Guess Who? :o)

ANOTHER NEW SPONSOR!
Thanks to teammate Martin Coleman, Merrill Lynch is a proud new 2009 sponsor of the Bozeman Tritons!

TRITON TIDBITS
Treasure State Triathlon, Bozeman, June 21
From Tony Brendgard, Fleet Feet Owner, Treasure State Triathlon Race Director & Triton Sponsor.  We are especially excited to announce that this Olympic distance triathlon has been named a “Best Of the US Qualifier.”  In recent years this triathlon has taken place in August, so please beware of the date change.  Additional information is available at http://www.tri-mt.com/

Headwaters Half Ironman, Three Forks, July 26
From Tony Brendgard, Fleet Feet Owner, Treasure State Triathlon Race Director & Triton Sponsor.  It’s official!  This year we are adding a half Ironman Triathlon to the local race calendar.  A handful of you out there might remember this race from the 80’s and 90’s and we are excited to bring it back.  The swim portion of the race will take place in Three Forks.  Participants will then bike from Three Forks to Manhattan, then Churchill, and back to Three Forks to finish the final portion of the triathlon.  More details to follow!  Check for updates at http://www.tri-mt.com/.

XTERRA Wild Horse Creek, Bozeman, July 26
From Karen LeFebre & Scott Muir, Race Directors.  Happy New Year.  We hope this new year brings you good health and happiness.  We are writing to inform you that due to last-minute changes in the XTERRA National schedule, we moved our race date to Sunday, July 26th.  We were informed in mid-November that the XTERRA Mountain Cup race was scheduled on the same weekend as our race.  After the new schedule was posted on http://www.xterraplanet.com/, we had many athletes asking us to move our race date so that they could attend both races.  After searching local events, July 26th was an open date in December, we chose to reapply for new permits and change our date accordingly.  Hope all is well and you are enjoying a fit and snow filled winter!  Additional information is available at http://www.bigskytri.com/.

Make Tracks for Trails, Bohart Ranch, Bozeman, 2/21
Equinox Ski Challenge, West Yellowstone, 3/21
From Furry Fulton, fellow Triton.  Two upcoming events might be of interest for Triton members who are participating in the Nordic training – or others as well.  21st of February is the Make Tracks for Trails event at Bohart – benefits GVLT.  A team of 4 skiers competes against other teams for most mileage – seems ideal for a super fit, but maybe not super fast, group of triathlon folks.  The second one is the Equinox Ski Challenge (March 21) at West Yellowstone – up to eight team members ski as a relay for 6, 12 or 24 hours.  People can also do this one solo if they are really tough.  Both seem like they might be fun goals for people to work towards as they refine their Nordic skiing.  I’d be happy to organize teams for either one of these events if people are interested.  Interested Tritons may contact Furry at jennifer.fulton@myportal.montana.edu.
