This weekend is the first race of the Ironman Regional Championships in South Africa leading up to the World Championship in Kona. Fantasytriathlon.com is adding its 2nd season-long league to its lineup of FREE entertainment. The season long fantasy league will consist of the Ironman Regional Championships plus the World Championship.

 

Check out the IM Regional Championship event schedule here. Fantasy Triathlon asked its 2015 users what they want next and they wanted season long leagues, as made popular by the major fantasy sports in America. With that be said; what better way to bring the hottest and fastest racing in professional triathlon as the first season long fantasy league?

This weekend we also have 2 exciting Ironman 70.3 races(70.3 Texas and 70.3 Palmas) and will be offering fantasy contests for both of those.  IM 70.3 Texas has a long start list and should be a very competitive race making for an exciting fantasy contest.

Also down in Palmas, Brazil we have another 70.3 regional championship which always brings a stacked field at the top end.  Join this fantasy contest and pick your top choices wisely as there is several big names to choose from. 

 

FantasyTriathlon.com would like to congratulate last weeks winner GHood who took home the win in the Ironman 70.3 California Contest, beating the closest competitor by 28 points!

Catlyynx and nickfragnito finished off the podium. You can find the complete results here.

Nickfrag reports in with a little strategy and trash talk:

I’m not going to say it was a great field and that I’m happy with a podium. 2nd place means I failed and need to work harder. I play to win. I’ll be back next week. Thank you TheRealStarky for being a pioneer and a visionary. You inspire us all. Without you, my loss wouldn’t have been possible.

I’ve raced against a few of the girls who were ultimately on the podium. However, is it still considered insider information if as far as racing goes on still a podium outsider?
