With a 2009 fourth place finish in Gilford, Lovato should be ready to break top three this year. To get a little idea of what he can expect in Gilford, check it out:
The Swim: fresh water lake swim in clear, blue Lake Winnipesaukee. The 70.3 Distance swim will be a GPS-measured 1.2 miles. The water temperature in August ranges from 70 degrees F to 77 degrees F.
The Bike: scenic out and back course with rolling hills. Most of course is newly paved with 6-10 foot shoulder. There are several challenging hills ranging from 3% to 9% grade. Watch out for the Marsh Hill Monstah! Course is not closed to traffic.
The Run: The run is a scenic course along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee with rolling hills. Look across the big lake, and see the majestic White Mountains.
We’re betting that all that rolling-out on the Trigger Point Grid will keep Lovato in tip-top shape and race ready! Stay posted for race results.
