Kanute Wins Alcatraz: Celebrate With Watts That Won Month

Congrats, Ben Kanute

Ben Kanute won Escape from Alcatraz on Sunday. This was a great victory for the reigning Alcatraz champ. He prepared all season for this race and took the crown with a one-two punch of steady training and flawless race planning. Watts That Won: 368. Congrats Ben!

Ben’s victory is an experience that we want all Stryders to have. You have the same tools as Ben, and we want to empower you to race like Ben. We are naming June Watts That Won month in celebration of Ben’s victory.
