    Sprint Tri on My HARO Escape Comp

    Did the Georgia Veterans Sprint Triathlon on my HARO Escape with full 2.3 MAXXIS Knobbies! It was a 400 Yard Swim, 13 Mile Road Bike then 5K run. The start got delayed because of an approaching storm. My Knobbies Held strong on the wet Parvement. Many Roadies hit the ground hard with their slick skinny tires.
