Eric Lagerstrom started his professional triathlon career in ITU racing before switching to non-draft disciplines. He has added multiple 70.3 wins and podiums to his results over the years. Eric’s swimming strength mixed with his technical skills on the bike made Escape from Alcatraz a perfect course for him. He has won the race twice. He also went on to finish 7th at the 70.3 World Championships in 2021.
Outside of competition, Eric started TTL with partner Paula Findlay. “This started out of a pure desire to bring happiness back to the sport. TTL stands for triathlon as a lifestyle. It doesn't matter if you compete, do all three sports each week, ride a $100 bike or a $10,000 bike. What matters is enjoying being outside, being friendly, and being a little better you each day.”
