Triathlete Adds Hardware

Via the PPH, Westbrook resident Mike Caiazzo won the Zone Urban Epic triathlon in Portland on Saturday.

Caiazzo, who was hampered by an injured calf suffered in last weekend's Spirit of Racine half-triathlon in Wisconsin, nevertheless finished the course-- a 1.4 km (about .9 of a mile) swim in Casco Bay; a 40 km (almost 25 miles) bike ride throughout Portland, Falmouth, and Cumberland; and a 10 km (just over 6 miles) run--atop a field of 300 competitors to win his second Maine triathlon this month (he won the inaugural Scarborough Triathlon on July 14).

Caiazzo also finished as the top American elite triathlete (fifth overall) in the USA Triathlon Elite Long Course National Championship at the EagleMan Ironman in Cambridge, Maryland on June 8.
