The Citadel Triathlon Team

The Citadel Triathlon Team


Hey guys/gals - I am a Citadel Grad - Class of '69 - and a current triathlete. You can read more by buying my book Chasing Caterpillars" (available on Amazon) - which includes a story and hints on triathlon. Generally I raced bikes until I turned 61 years old - then went to triathlon because I ran out of age groups in local bike racing in Florida - and most sub-state level events. Have a few medals, a triathlon national championship and a Pan American Masters Championship on the bike.
But that is not why I am posting. I have spent the last 8 months developing the best triathlon kit on the market and will be happy to send you information so that you guys can get the best kit on the market - designed particularly for the heat of the southern United States. I would love to get with you. design the kit for your team - and for your cycling friends also (I have both). Kits are manufactured in the Eu with the best material available - not 3rd world knock off stuff. And you can design the graphics you want.
Get back with me please and we can take this off the public line!
Hi everyone!

I am trying to get the triathlon team at College of Charleston going again, so, if you know anyone who races that is a student here, PLEASE send me a message!

If anyone is looking to get into running shape this summer, I hope everyone is keeping up on their training!

MIDN 1/C, Erick Samayoa - Standout Stories from the South Carolina Corps of Cadets As I look ahead and plan for this coming summer, I can’t help but reflect back on an opportunity I had last year that created an indelible memory, and an ongoing opportunity for me to help lead younger people who share a passion for cycling.
