The Iron Maiden Triathlon is only one week away, and surprisingly, Vegas oddsmakers have labeled Peru Nordic’s David Kvam as the man to beat in the annual pain-laden race in Peru, NY.   Kvam is the favorite despite the fact that he has never raced the course, or has never even visited Peru.  Prognosticators have predicted that the speedy Kvam will be well out front  after the run, then he will do most of his damage on the bike leg, before cruising to the finish on rollerskis.  Two time defending champ Chris Rose was visibly distressed by the news, “This is b$&#**t! Kvam is a unproven rookie in this race and he will be put in his place…the Hill of Death will eat him alive… the Iron is mine, and mine alone!”

Kvam and Rose lead a solid field of contenders. Scheduled to compete are NYSSRA superstars Bob Maswick, Joe Korzenecki, Mike Wynn and Andy Farry, as well as Patch Sprint veterans, Jason Fiegl, Jim Kobak, Deb Nordyke and Tom Moffett.
