05.08.2012 @ 09:25
TriStar Mallorca 2012 – 2nd, TriStar Lyon 2012 – 3rd, TriStar Milton Keynes – 2nd, TriStar Estonia – 1st?
Ben is a relative beginner in the field of Triathlon, taking it up in place of swimming and rowing, in his last year of studies at Durham University.
Despite being a newbie, Ben already has some impressive performances under his belt, since beginning his training with TBC Master Coach Rob Griffiths. Racing in the elite field at the London Tri in the summer of 2010, Ben came 31st overall, in a time of 1:58 and he burned up the field at the National Age Group Champs in Bedford, coming 3rd place overall with a PB of 1:56. And to top 2010 off, Ben was crowned World Champion in the 20-24 Age Group at the World AG Champs in Hungary - his time of 1 hour 46 mins.
In 2011 Ben went back to the National Champs and won his age group. He also took part in the British Elite Series and came an impressive 20th overall.
Competed in TriStar Mallorca 2011 and now is racing his 4th TriStar in this season. Will that be his first win?
Ben is one of the new TriStar ambassadors- young, talented athletes that love their sports and share the same spirit.
the BIKE course
05.08.2012 @ 09:15
The bike course runs through picturesque Southern-Estonian dome hills, passing several lakes. The course is quite difficalt for competitors and well observable for spectators. The most exciting location for spectators is the steep climb on Mäe street at Otepää. The 100km bike course consists of 3 loops (altogether 1100m of climb), the first of which is a bit longer. Counting loops is every racers own responsibility and it is checked by judges. Drafting is forbidden.
Bryan McCrystal #2
05.08.2012 @ 09:14
My name is Bryan McCrystal. I am a former Soccer player turned Triathlete!
I am a full time Jeweller in Baldwins. I custom make mainly Engagement Rings and Wedding rings. Baldwins are a family run business that is its 3rd Generation. I am lucky enough to be that 3rd person. Established in 1955 we have been serving the public quality product for quite some time…
Since I could walk I have played Soccer. Graduating from my local side Bellurgan Fc and then to senior level at Dundalk Fc I was spotted by Leeds United. I signed for Leeds United in 1998 and played youth and reserve team level for 3 years or so. Also making a few appearences for Ireland at Youth Level. Unfortunatley things didnt work out and I came home in 2001 and continued to play League of Ireland and Irish League. I enjoyed spells we Dundalk Fc, Newry city Fc and Dungannan Swifts. Between Clubs I suffered several Knee ACL & cartilage problems that brought a halt to my playing career in May 2007.
The same year in October I competed in the Dublin Marathon as a ”keep myself fit” attitude. I completed it in 2 hours 58 minutes. Fed up with running alone I joined My local Setanta Triathlon Club
Since 2008 I have trained and competed as a triathlete and have enjoyed some great times and a quick transition from a footballer to a triathlete.
2nd in TriStar Estonia- racing as an AG athlete at that time!

Mikk Lellsaar on 111 individual course
05.08.2012 @ 08:50
Mikk Lellsaar, a 27 year old with diabeties has been comatosed twice in his life because of his illness, but this hasn't stopped him from signing up to compete on today's TriStar111 Estonia. Mikk is volleyball player and says that he can't let his illness stop him from realizing his dreams, one of which will be accomplished today. The hardest part for him is going to be the swim where he can't bring any backup carbs with him. He already competed in Tartu Mill triathlon a couple of weeks back and felt great and will aim for even longer distances if everything goes well today.
So thumbs up and a lot of cheers for Mikk on the track! His number is #85
Yes you can!
Here's an Estonian newspaper article on Mikk Lellsaar: http://www.ohtuleht.ee/486839
