Jordan Rapp first to successfully navigate the Soma

Written by: Dan Empfield, Date: Mon Oct 29 2007

Jordan Rapp ended his season in fine form, winning the popular Soma Triathlon in the heart of America's Canyon Southwest.
Rapp, having conquered triathlon's first four events — swim, bike run and nutrition — finally nailed the fifth and, for him, most elusive event, course navigation. The talented second-year pro fought off urges to veer his bike from the highway onto private drives, dirt trails, and roads less traveled, staying the course and prevailing in 96-degree heat to win in 4:01:46.
