Although this was news last November, at Ironman Arizona, where Pac Bikes women, Meredith Keeran and Rosie Castaneda, qualified for the 2009 Ironman World Championships in Kona, here it is again, fresh from Ironman.com’s series on the 2009 Kona bound women.
Rosie Castaneda, 25, scorched the course with the fastest marathon split in her age group of 3:35:56. In her second attempt at the full distance, she took of a solid 69 minutes from her previous time, bringing her in with a 2nd place age group finish. Rosie, we can’t wait to see you flying down the Queen-K in pink!Rosie pictured on the podium at Wildflower last year, on the left.
Meredith Keeran, 30-34 age group, won her age group at IM Arizona, with a blazing 9:56:41. I guess the 3rd time is the charm, as this was her 3rd full IM for 2008. She took 90 minutes off her earlier April IM time. Meredith, we’re thrilled to have you racing with Team Pac Bikes this year!
This is just an early season update on the many fabulous and fast ladies in pink. Good luck to Ariane Buser at IM New Zealand coming up little more than a week!
