Triathlon Ontario, the recognized Provincial Governing Body of Multisport in Ontario, wraps up 2016 season of Provincial level competitions this weekend in the Niagara Region as the Skechers Performance Niagara Barrelman hosts the Long Course Provincial Championships and the final stop on the Triathlon Ontario Long Course Series.
The 2016 edition of the Niagara Barrelman is the fourth and final stop in the LC Series. As a result of also hosting Provincial Championships, points earned in the Series at Niagara are worth 1.25x the regular amount.
In the Women’s Age Group Division Kristen King (688 points) leads the way over second place Erica Govan (530 points). In the Men’s Age Group Division Dany Malley (650 points) has a slim lead over Michael Casista (615 points).
Moving to the Master’s Division, Jennifer Knowles (731 points) has a comfortable lead over Erica Mantay (628 points), while Luke Ehgoetz (688 points) leads second place Joe Gati (650 points).
This is a best two of four results competition. With the final race being an extra points race, what will happen?! Hope you are all as intrigued as we are heading into the race weekend.
Interested in competing in the Series? All you need to do is be a current member and finish in the top 20 in your age group to score points. Good luck to all this weekend!
