Rocky Point Triathlon

Three of us are going down to Mexico to do the Rocky Point International
Triathlon on April 17th and I'm wondering if any other RSTers will be there.

 This will be the second year I've done the race.  It's a pretty cool
location for a race; Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco in Spanish) is a neat
little fishing village about 100 miles south of the border from Tucson, AZ
on the Gulf of California.  Lot's of people from Tucson have weekend homes
there and English is spoken by pretty much all the natives.  The swim is in
the warm water of the Gulf of California along the beach, the bike is an
absolutely flat out and back course (but there can be a tailwind going out
and headwind coming back sometimes) and the run is through the town.  It all
starts and ends at the beach at the Plaza Las Glorias hotel and condos where
they have a big post race party.  Tucson racing puts it on and they do a
great job.  There is a web site if you want more info on the race

I'd be interested in meeting anyone who is going to be doing the race.
Reply here or drop me an email.
