Overcoming Mother Nature

With the ebb tide the strongest it’s been in the history of the race, Jordan Wilimovsky and Ashley Twichell successfully battled the conditions to win the RCP Tiburon Mile. This year was the 15th year that event founder Bob Placak held the event and hosted an array of national champions including Chip Peterson, Alex Meyer, and Becca Mann. 

With the ebb tide as strong as it was the wetsuit and age group races were cancelled, but the elite were allowed to perform. Wilimovsky jumped to the lead at the beginning and held his position, while Twitchell and Mann battled for the win until the very last second.
