Welcome to the third annual Revolution3 Triathlon in Knoxville, Tennessee.  It’s race weekend folks and athletes are starting to arrive from all over the world– the city of Knoxville is ready!  The unofficial water temp today is 67 degrees- borderline wetsuit swim for the PROs and a sure sign it’ll be a wetsuit swim for all you age groupers.  Even better crb_news- awesome weather is on tap promising mid-80s and sun all weekend long.  Perfect racing and spectating weather!!

We’ve got a stellar PRO field this weekend- fast fast athletes all competing for the their share of the $50,000 and series points that are up for grabs. If you haven’t had a chance to read Michael Lovato’s write up on the Rev3 Knoxville Preview 2012, check it out:https://rev3tri.com/crb_news/rev3-knoxville-preview-2012

Be on the lookout for our tweets, facebook updates, videos and blogs over the course of the weekend- our social handle is: @Rev3Tri and #Rev3Knox.  We have a ton of things planned so make sure you’re in the know and if you can not join us this weekend, we hope to bring you along through our social media so you can “feel” a part of the excitement down here in Knoxville, TN!
