The 4th annual Paul Bunyan Triathlon, featuring intermediate and sprint distance courses, is slated for Saturday, July 25.

MTN predictions: A pair of 41-year-old athletes from Park Rapids - David Bjorklund and Angie Walther--will win the short course event. The inaugural intermediate distance race will be won rather handily by Duluth's decorated "Rocket" Rod Raymond (pictured) and Minnetonka's Laurel Sundberg. This would be the first career multisport victory for Sundberg, whose 2009 resume includes at 3rd at Liberty Olympic, 4th at Graniteman and 8th at Lake Minnetonka.
