The word rings sweet, its realization elusive.
But the time has come. The Ranch has evolved.
On April 2, 2011, RiderTurbo won first place in the Xterra Renegade Off-Road Triathlon in Bonelli Park, San Dimas, Los Angeles, California. Competition in the recreation division could not be characterized as strong or deep. But a win is a win. The analog of a Sprint distance triathlon conducted alongside a competitive Olympic distance race, the Xterra recreation division consisted of a 1/2 mile open water lake swim, 7.5 mile mountain bike and 3 mile trail run. Turbo swam smooth in the lake, clobbered the mountain bike and harkened Rocky Mountain training days of old to run the rugged trails and cross the line ahead of all-comers. RiderMama, RiderZoe and Rider Sasha cheered at transitions and near the finish line as Turbo flew team colors during the award ceremony, getting called up on stage with a Ranch sleeveless jersey. Even got a Victory mug to prove it. New score. Ranch: 1. Competition: Zero.
