Butterfield Records a DNF in Boulder Ironman
Bermuda Olympian Tyler Butterfield competed in the Boulder Ironman event, however he did not finish.
Midway through the Bike Course Butterfield has a slice tire that took him out of the race.
Butterfield on his social media page said, “Everything happens for a reason, I was able to get new wheel and bit later finished bike and 10 miles of the run.”
“My goal was to compete in front of my kids, so it was probably a blessing with the slice tire, it made me be a bit smarter than I can be about the objectives of the day.”
