(Nevis, MN - August 8, 2009) Mayer's Brooks Grossinger has won five of the seven editions of the Northwoods Triathlon. His triumphant 59:17 on Saturday in soggy Nevis was a very solid effort, the 2nd fastest clocking in race history and almost four minutes faster than the runner-up time of masters ace Jim Graif, 47, 0f Elk River.

Nine of the top 10 women were masters, with Bemidji's Christel Kippenhan, 44, leading the way. It was Christel's 2nd W of the season. Fourteen-time Triathlon Today! / Inside Tri All American Robin Tedlund, 50, of Duluth, who was victorious here in 2003 and 2004, took 2nd for the third consecutive year.

The race's enrollment ceiling was 350-participants and filled in 11 days.
