The 2nd annual Buffalo Triathlon Club "Lockport UnDu" workout will be held on Saturday, August 31st, 2013.  It will be led by it's founder, Peter Monteferrante, with lots of help from other volunteers.  If you can volunteer some time to help with this event, please email Peter.  The event will be held at the Lockport Infirmary Soccer Fields.

Some memorable quotes from the 2012 UnDu:
 
"I guess the 180 event was pretty challenging.  Only 5 people registered, only 3 showed up, and only 1 was able to finish!"
- Peter Monteferrante
 
"I laid down with my bike AND THEN I unclipped"
  - Lisa Trapasso
 
"I think I'll feel better after I throw-up"
  - Chuck Miller
 
"I laid down in the grass, well it was more like straw, and I heard the car stop and reverse to me... 'R U OK?' 'I've been out riding and running since 8AM'.. then the car drives off... does he offer me a ride? nope!"
  - Michael Voigt

 "That's either a really tough loop, or I'm in big trouble next weekend" and "I was pushing over 300 WATTS and I looked down... I was only gong 17MPH
 
"I think I'm stuck in aero position!"
