Race Notes:

Oshawa Kills You.

Both men's and women's winners of the 4th annual "spring" (AKA winter) KWBM came from the suburban industrial Ontario city known as The 'Shwa. Which begs the question, is there something in the water in Oshawa? Well, beer does flow freely, and visitors often swear there is something in the air, which may explain something.

Men's champ the mulleteer? avenged his 3rd place defeat at last year's winter/spring edition by beating his nemesis Adam:L. After these 2 delivered the closest and fastest finish in tri-cities history in the fall (6:05), this race was hyped as Adam's final collegiate swan song. But the hip-hopping Northerner posed no contest for a fit Mullet B Miler, who by way of his apparel brazenly declared himself part of the national b-miling team before the race even started. In fact it was almost worse for Adam, as Scott the Snake narrowly missed his second silver in as many weeks, coming up just short of striking down the former event record holder.

Women's champ and multi-sporter Laura P added one more event to her repertoire en route to PB?ing by almost 4 minutes. In '04 Laura was second last overall and improved to 15th this year, shaming six smack-talking males. All said though, women did not deliver as they had in the past, with notable DNS's. Their abstinence contributed to just missing a participation record. Nonetheless, props to all female competitors who all ran the same race as the men (none of this 3-beer business).

Other notable performances included ironman Smith continuing his late-blooming b-miling career with a solid 4th place finish. Both Smith and the Snake PB'd, which was no small feat given the course conditions. Event staff worked tirelessly throughout the day to clear the track out from under snow and ice, and although some spots were still sketchy they made the race possible. Further down the list but nonetheless impressive was the chocolate milk-miling Saskatchewanee who managed not to puke 2L of ingested brown dairy product ? during the race at least.

1st Interval: Whitey, 11.5 sec 1st Lap: muleteer?, 1:25
2nd Interval: Adam:L, 1:51 2nd Lap: muleteer?, 3:07
