Stansbury Park’s Hoban defends triathlon title

Stansbury Park’s Brandi Hoban successfully defended her title for the fifth consecutive year by winning the 13th annual Stansbury Days Triathlon Saturday.

Hoban’s winning time of 1:09:40.1 edged Amy Herrera, also of Stansbury Park, by 36 seconds.

Hererra jumped out to a quick lead in the 500+ yard swim in Stansbury Lake, traversing the first leg of the event in 7:57.

However, Hoban eventually caught and passed the leader on the 12-mile bike portion cruising through Stansbury and Erda neighborhoods.

Herrera made a gallant comeback in the 3.1-mile run, sprinting the leg in 21:55.3, finishing just 35 seconds behind the first place winner.

Tamara Mobley of Rigby, Idaho, grabbed the bronze medal with a time of 1:11.04. Sixty-two year old Judy Desmond and Lisa Bergantz, both of Stansbury Park, rounded out the top five women.

Only three seconds separated the top two finishers in the thrilling men’s division competition. 

Ben Roberts of West Valley edged Layton’s Nathan Pollard in the extremely tight sprint triathlon.

Roberts fell nearly 30 seconds behind after the open water swim and gained a mere three seconds in the out-and-back cycle portion.

However, Roberts eventually caught Pollard on the 5K run before he inched passed him in the sprint to the finish line winning in the time of 1:00.36.

Stansbury Park’s Devin Terry earned third place honors with a time of 1:02.50 followed by Maurice Ledent of Stembert, Belgium and Dan Bergantz of Stansbury Park.

“It’s just incredible to have our two top finishers nearly break an hour in this demanding race,” said event director Hillary Luke.

She added, “We were equally excited to have two of our competitors all the way from Belgium and some out-state athletes join us in this year’s competition.”

Five relay teams composed of three members each also competed in popular community event.

Luke noted that Village Boulevard construction forced a last-minute change in the traditional bike route.

“Early reports from participants indicate that they favored the new route,” she said.

The director said committee members will discuss and evaluate ways to improve the race for the 2019 event.

“We appreciate all the participants, volunteers, contributors, and fans that make this triathlon such a popular and integral part of Stansbury Days,” Luke said.
