Amber Heads to Idaho!

Amber Ferreira-Pro Triathlete's photo.

After a great 6th place finish at the Mt. Washington Road Race, Amber now has her sights set on her second Ironman of the season out in Idaho with Ironman Coeur d'Alene. From what I've heard, the course is beautiful and has some pretty steep climbs on the bike course. Apart from the stiff competition, the biggest factor for this Sunday will be the heat. With predicted temperatures climbing into the 100's, this is not weather conducive for racing well.

In fact, it is so hot that there has been talk about canceling the race. Which would stink for Amber. This will be her first race back and she's already shelled out money for the flight, rental car etc and not to race would be a great disappointment. Oh yeah and disappointment for me and all of her fans, because I think she has the potential to win it if it does go on.

So all you people with an in with the weather gods, touch base with them and request temps that don't result in a cancellation and then send all your good vibes her way!

Good luck Amber!!!
