2014 Gear West Duathlon is in the Books!



We did it!  It's done!  It was superb on all levels...what a great day to do a duathlon.  Sun was shining for the first time in many, many years.  The air temps were near perfect and the smiles were endless.  Thanks to everyone for being a part of the event.  It was truly a success and we couldn't do it without all the support from the participants, the shop, and, of course, our faithful volunteers.  Again, thank you so much.  You can view results below along with the finisher video.  Check it out!

Let the Fun Begin...DuBoom!



Race weekend is here (well, almost)...Sunday is just around the corner.  Some housekeeping updates for you to keep in mind as we approach Saturday and Sunday.  Packet pick-up will be ALL day Saturday at Gear West Bike & Triathlon Store:

1786 West Wayzata Boulevard
Long Lake, MN 55356

We will be open normal business hours, 10am until 5pm.  If you can pick up your packet on Saturday, please do.  It will give you an opportunity to stock up on race necessities and talk about the course, stop out at the course (Orono High School) and maybe check out some of the new gear, accessories and bikes that have arrived.  We hope to see you Saturday.  Crystal Neal, Chiropractor at Orthology, will be there to assist you in your packets, along with any chiropractic questions you may have...she is the best!

On-line registration closes tonight at 11:59pm CST.  You can register at Zap Event or by clicking HERE

You can also register race day morning between 6:30am and 7:45am.  Of course, the earlier the better...but we get it, life is tricky, so do what you can.  Race starts promptly at 8am, so be ready to go...

If you have further questions please contact Trent or Sean at the shop: 952-473-0093

Mud, Guts and Glory




Going Big and Flashy...(why wouldn't we)

As we continue to think Spring as the days slowly go by and the snow begins to melt, then pile back up, and the cold sets in (again)...there is no doubt that at some point the grass will become green, the sun will shine bright and hot and the trees will show their leaves.  Until those days come, we imagine it in different terms then put that imagination into shirt design.  Clearly with this years design, we have lost our minds from all the sub-zero temps...and we are very happy we did!  Take a look and let us know what you think:
Yeah, we're pretty proud!  The gear West Duathlon is in its 21st year...that is awesome!  WE continue to believe that the fun of the sport is the reason it exists at all.  We want to encourage that fun, keep it real, keep it simple, and, of course, keep it safe.
