Challenge Knoxville 2015, some (hundred and something) photos!

Insert bemoaning about not being able to race. (I wasn't bothered by the fact up until race day... I miss racing!!)

The Cobb Mobb was out and about, with Thomas Gerlach right off the podium in 4th (I'm sure his blog will have a recap of some...shitty happenings from his day...) and Nick Brodnicki finishing strong in the pro race. William Ritter had a tough day in the half with a flat. (along with a trip back to Texas post race!) Sharon Deane won the Athena division. Other Mobbsters were on course doing work! Jimmy brought out the magical pink Unicorn cheering outfit.

Now that that is out of the way, we'll get right to the ice cream. I got a good amount of pictures, particularly from T1 Exit, but unfortunately I'm a better triathlete than I am photographer (which means I can "sometimes" get the camera on and pointed in the right direction) which, mixed with my low end camera and downpour that was going on, means they aren't the best pictures in the world. Nonetheless, have a look, see if I got a shot of you or someone you know. Enjoy!

Rocky Top Multisports... what a bunch of goofballs

This guy had to dismount immediately (before mount line) but he did an awesome job on, off and on again, especially having shoes on.

Another Dimond, Borden maybe?

This was a slick paintjob on this Dimond

Hey Cobb saddles

I made sure to get a picture of Thomas and Jimmy in the same frame ;)

After flatting out, William decided to get his run in anyways

Aww... a wife / hubby moment

Nick, having made his own course (doing 40 miles on the bike instead of 25) laughing it off

Finally I managed to get a picture of Nick

Surprise Doc!

William a bit disappointed

Sharon right after finishing... she looks thrilled

Thomas Getting paid

Again, sorry about the quality... congratulations to everyone who competed on a tough day. Glad everyone ended up (relatively) unscathed. Lots of crashes, could have been a lot worse.

Thanks for checking out the blog... more reviews in the coming days... I got my hand on an Omega X that is ready for a breakdown.
