Snow, Holloway Win Toyota Wall2Wall Triathlon

Sept. 27, 2007 – As the expectant athletes toed the tropical water of Cane Bay on Sunday, for the first time in years there were no clear favorites in the Toyota Wall2Wall Triathlon. This perceived changing of the guard left the race open to anyone whose training and talent were enough to earn them a first-time victory.
The race started with a half-mile swim in unusually calm but current riddled water. Jason Snow led the men back onto the beach, with a 50-second lead over DeWayne Smith, as the race shaped up as a duel between the two. The hilly, North Shore bike course of 15 miles saw the two finish with ten seconds, and the race was now well and truly on. Snow left with a 50-yard lead, as Smith exploded out of the transition, looking to quickly make up time on the three-mile run. However, as Smith soon learned, it is not how you start but how you finish that makes all the difference in an endurance event. Snow cruised to an easy win in 1:21:50, and when Smith became incapacitated from his efforts, he was passed by Troy Holloway for second place in 1:26:49. Smith ultimately finished with the bronze in 1:28:47.
Youngster Sissel Holloway, Troy's daughter, continued a successful day for her family by leading wire-to-wire, to capture the ladies' crown in 1:35:28. Valerie Shoppell took second in 1:44:51, and Elizabeth Nurnberger took time out from her Marine Corps Marathon training for third, in 1:47:05.
Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman led her team of Sue Brown and Shane Duncan to an easy win in the relay category in 1:12:52. Will Peil captured the Youth Division race of a ¼-mile swim, 5-mile bike and 1.5-mile run in 54:55.
The Stamina Sports Duathlon will be held at Cramers Park on Oct. 14. This multi-sport race is designed for athletes that like to bike and run, but are not fans of swimming. The format of the race will be a 1.5-mile run around the park grounds, followed by a 14-mile bike ride around the East End of St. Croix, followed by another 1.5-mile run. Duathlons are very popular late season races all around the world, and are an excellent introduction to multi-sport races for first-timers, as well as a fun change of pace for experienced triathletes. There will also be a shorter distance duathlon for kids and adults who prefer a less strenuous race.
Applications are available at Stamina Sports, located at 4A Orange Grove, 719-6749.
