Here’s a photo taken at Eppie’s Great Race a few years ago, before they banned recumbents. Eric Warp came in 5th out of 700 riders, and Gary Souza (center) and Brad Tedeschi came in 6th and 7th.
Here, Gary (who rode the cycling leg) and Phil (kayak pilot) with their trophies. Gary passed pacelines of roadies (about 100 riders) like they were standing still for the entire 12.5 miles of the cycling portion of the triathlon, keeping a steady speed of about 30mph.
