Georgia Gould takes #3 win, Shonny Vanlandingham 4th, Jeremiah Bishop 8th.

What an early season Georgia is having! She takes her 4th win of this 2007 season. Only 17 months ahead to the Beijing Olympics, so the racers are showing everything they have! What you see is what they have!

The immune system protects your body against potentially damaging microorganisms. Athletes engaged in heavy endurnce training programs often have depressed immune function just before an up coming race; they jump on a plane and catch a bug. The stress of travel can lead to increased incidences of infections. Insufficient recovery can be debilitating; their well-being can be affected for months. However, that does not stop the races, so they have to stay with the program.

Shonny Vanlandingham had the flu bug while down south, and we all know how the flu can hit you hard. Her immine system is still repairing the pathogen agent that is in her body, so she really had a super race. She spent two days on a plane and didn't even race, as she flew from her home in Kona, to Texas, and then south. She put up a good fight, but the heat made its mark.

Jeremiah Bishop told us that he has the same thing that Shonny reported, he was just getting over being sick, also a good run to place 8th. Jeremiah was in the running until he had a flat. The course was very rocky!

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with a racer. There are many external factors that can lead to fatigue and decreased performance.

After their great runs, I'm very sure they will be ready for Sea Otter. This is the season to watch all the teams, races, and racers! Everyone wants to go to Olympics!
