Congratulations, and Welcome!

With the help of Inside Triathlon Magazine, we scoured the nation for the just the right person to round out our 2008 team. It wasn't easy narrowing down so many incredible essays, but dang if one didn't fire to the front of the pack and keep gunning right through the homestretch. With a racing record to match, we're excited to announce that John Paul Severin - a senior Spartan from Michigan State University - is the next and final 2008 Team Evotri edition!

A regular Wolfgang Puck in the kitchen, the team is looking very forward to JP's culinary creations. In fact he'll be sharing regular recipes with the world at large in Tri-This, one of the two new columns coming soon to John Paul will also report the latest happening from the college tri scene, as well as address not only his fellow Spartan triathletes, but clubs from coast to coast in another soon to air column, The Collegiate.

We hope you're able to make it to the Steelhead 70.3 on August 2nd in order to help us officially welcome John Paul to the team, but if you're not, he'll be tackling his first Ironman in Madison, Wisconsin alongside Iron veteran teammate Rural-Girl in just about 7 weeks, so be sure to come out and cheer them both on. In the meantime, have a listen to JPs reaction as he's asked to join the team by clicking here!

Thanks once again to Inside Triathlon Magazine, and to all the incredible athletes who sent in essays. If you'd like to follow along with JP "Pooh Bear" Severin's new journey, you can check in with him at, which will go live in a few days.

Welcome aboard, JP!
