Ben Kanute is quite decidedly off to a ripping start this season. The 2016 Olympic triathlete from Illinois has a motto which is race from the front. And that's exactly what he did at St. Anthony's Triathlon.
He kept the race close with his nearest rival through the swim, but he dropped the hammer, and the competition, on the bike and never turned back until he crossed the finish line.
That's impressive enough, but this was his third win already this early season. Makes us wonder how many more wins he'll notch this year.
