Cobb Mobb gets kicked off with 2015!

Well, the 2015 season is officially getting underway, and it's no surprise that the Cobb Mobbers are already out in full force for the racing season!  Check out some of the awesome racing that's been going on below!

Jennifer Tsang Hirsch competed in the Desert International Triathlon on 3/1 and caught this great shot of her in the swim.

And here she is on the bike. Sweet setup!

Leslie Martin Stelpflug had a great time at the Texarcana Run The Line Half Marathon on 2/15 and managed to net a 2nd Female Overall!

Jeff took 3rd place in his age group at the Stanford Triathlon.

Christy Richboug took 12th in the Cat 4 category at the Walburg Classic Road Race on 2/21.
Steve and Cheryl Ford finished the Little Rock Marathon on 2/28.

Delinda Waldron took first place in her age group at the Snowman Stampede 10 Miler on 2/21.

Jared Daley had a pair of endurance mountain bike races - seen here at the 2.5 Endurance Race in Tyler, Tx....

...and here at the Ray Porter Memorial 6 hour MTB race.

Mark Saroni took first overall at Moe's Better Half Marathon on 3/1 and even spread the Cobb love to his buddy - who took 3rd overall.

Heath Thurston had a feature in a local magazine.

He also made the paper with a sprint race he did in Provo, Ut on 2/28.

The Cobb Mobb crew got together to "take over" another race again - this time at the Fresh 15k on March 7th in Tyler, Tx.  There was a contingent at the race representing the Mobb - as well as some people taking home some prize money at the end!

Jeff Mayhill, Seth Cooke, and JT Peebles taking off hard at the start line!

Seth and JT were neck and neck for the entire race.

William Ritter raced an incredible race - floating his way to a podium finish!

Rachel took first place in her category and got a nice big check for her effort (she also placed in the Overall category which netted her another prize check).

Christy Richbourg also podiumed and also claimed some prize money.

The whole crew got together at the end to pose for a picture in front of the Cobb Cycling tent.

In addition to racing, some members took the time to deck out their equipment in the team colors.

Kat Vann Hammers made sure there would be no mistake of what team her cheerleading weapon of choice was being used for.

Several Cobb Mobb members sported their swim caps in training as the order came in February.  Linzie Hebert is shown here with hers at the pool.

Jeff Lam took the opportunity to make sure there was a little spice added to his Kask aero helmet.

With some big races on the horizon - and the triathlon season moving into full swing later in the month - look for some more updates from the team in the near future!
