Reed grabs the W
Matty Reed successfully defended his 2010 Rev3 Knoxville Triathlon title. Reed took the lead from Boulder's Cameron Dye in the later stage of the run to secure the win.
"I am happy to win today and its good to know I am coming into form," Reed, a 2008 Olympian, said. "I didn't ride well today so I had to keep faith in my training and not give up til the tape."
Reed takes a close second at St Anthony's 5150
I'm happy to be back in race form. This race is special to me so I always want to be a race factor. A little more top end work needed but happy with my form coming.
Went for it, solid swim, solid bike, decent 10km, missing next 10km though. More threshold running needed. Good lessons learned for later in the year. Next 10 weeks, short and fast racing.
Welcome to the team: Kingston Marie Reed.

Reed grabs the W in Knoxville
Knoxville, Tennessee Matty Reed exited the water in second and took the lead out of transition. Reed was passed by Bjorn Anderson at mile 6 and then Lieto at mile 15. But Reed knew simply to keep the big bikers in check on this course. Reed left transition like a man on a mission. Reed passed Lieto at 5km, and Anderson just before mile 4 and never looked back. This win is the first of 2010 and was Reed's focus for the first part of the season.
"I knew the best triathlete on the day would win. There was a lot of talk about the quality of bikers here and I was comfortable with my position as a strong biker but also as a runner and how I am running. I felt very controlled all day and am happy with the Rev3 win. Now lets get to work for Quassy! (June 5)"
Reed and Potts - Gateway to the Bay Triathlon- Charity Event for Jenny's Light
Kemah, Texas Matty Reed and Andy Potts, both USA Olympians, took their triathlon talent to Kemah, Texas this past weekend. Both athletes headed up relay teams, where the other spots were auctioned off to raise money for Jennyslight.org. The two triathlon powers also participated in a dinner Q & A Friday evening along with swim and run clinics on Saturday.
"What a great event, what a weekend! It is an honor to be a part of something so fun and for such a great cause. Being a part of a relay for me was a true highlight and we got to meet some great people. We handed out medals on Saturday at the sprint race and I saw exactly why I love our sport- it truly is a fun, healthy lifestyle. Andy and I do great battle on the race courses and he is one of the greatest sportsmen I have ever met. To share a weekend for a charity close to both of us dads, it was a pleasure."
Reed finishes 2nd at Oceanside 70.3, Shows form is returning
As 2010 season blasts off, Reed showed his skill of the 70.3 distance this past weekend.
"I do feel I have learned a lot about the distance. I struggled with a lack of full fitness on the bike that I am used to. But I do feel that I learned that at this distance, being consistent is so important. I am happy I was able to push through on the day and stand on the podium. Now back home to get to work for St. Anthony’s!"
Reed Finishes 3rd at Season Opener Miami International
Reed records fastest run but a flat, uncharacteristic bike leaves the top spot out of reach.
"I simply stunk on the bike today," Reed said. "But I have to be a smart racer this year and I knew coming in that I have a big race 13 days away and have bigger fish up stream this season. Oceanside in two weeks time is a race I want."
Reed exited the water in 4th and jumped to an early lead on the bike but simply was not able to respond when Lieto, Yoder and Chrabot came by.
"I was flat. Straight up. I am happy with the podium today and am happy to start the 2010 season."
Matt Reed pledges to continue to spread the word on ALS and support The Blazeman Foundation and work to find a cure for this disease.
REED STARTS SEASON AT PHOENIX ROCK-N-ROLL HALF MARATHON
"I felt that a great way to kick off my 2010 training would be 3 weeks of training and then a hit-out at the half marathon to see a base point. The Rock-n-Roll races are great events and I love taking the starting line with the super fast runner boys. I am off for 3 weeks of training at sea level and then back home for 4 weeks at home. My opening race is Miami International, where I have won twice so I am looking forward to heading to Florida in March."
