US Olympian Matt Reed blew into the windy city with one thing on his mind, redemption.

Matt is an avid Trigger Point Performance product user, he is having an awesome season.

Reed said, “I have had a second, two thirds, and a fourth here. I wanted that win.” The man known as Boom Boom cleaned up the streets of Chicago flying his 6’5” frame to take the win in 1:48. Reed took the lead at 8 km an never looked back. He also won the bike and run primes as well as the equalizer. Reed stated, “Coming into this race I wasn’t high on confidence but knew I was fit. Last weekend I wasn’t smart and made a tactical error and it cost me. This weekend I only thought to do what I do best and that is swim bike and run and to do it here on what could be the course for the 2016 Olympics is very exciting”. Not only was this win redemption but as per his pre race plan he dominated over the rest of the field. This win puts Big Matty Reed in the lead for the 2009 Lifetime Triathlon Series and he is the heavy favorite to take the next two races in Los Angeles and Dallas. Next up, Matt will travel down under to race at the Dextro Energy ITU World Championships. Reed ended by saying, “this race was a great hit out for world championships ITU on Sept 12th.”
