Finishers of Leadman Tri Bend — voted Best New Race of 2012 — could tell you all about the epic 5K swim in Oregon's deep, cool Cultus Lake. They could talk for hours about the 223K bike course around Mount Bachelor or debate the best way to attack the two-loop course around Tetherow Golf Course with its’ dramatic finish in NorthWest Crossing. But most will simply let their new belt buckle do all the talking for them.
