Lessing Storms Alcatraz

Just to follow-up on my follow-up. I'm growing a sneaking admiration
for Simon Lessing. Despite having been skeptical about his short
course speed over the past few years he is really coming good this year.

In todays Escape from Alcatraz Simon blew away a significant pack in
the swim, bike and run according to my buddy from the local SF tri
club and came home in a record 1:54 - This is significant, its an odd
swim cold and choppy but full of current, there is almost a 1-mile run
from swim exit to T1, its a hilly 18-mile bike with little room or
benefit from drafting, and a difficult run including a tunnel that
ends only 5ft high, the sand ladder and Baker Beach...

Big-up for Simon!
