Alaska's Beck and Oklahoma's Fiddler are 2010 Champions
40-year-old Jens Beck from Alaska is the first-ever Master to win the Championship title. Beck has a long history with Best of the U.S., climbing from 8th place in 2006, to 5th in 2009, and now National Champion. Team Alaska went home with the Fastest Coed Team, Fastest Men's Team, and 2nd Fastest Women's Team awards. Oklahoma's Joanna Fiddler puts the state in the record books as first-ever repeat Champion (Bethany Handley, also from the Sooner State, was 2009 women's Champion). A very successful road racer, recently-turned-triathlete, Fiddler has proved herself a force to be reckoned with.
