Guitarist and former Ironband member, Mike Roberts, will step to the starting line at the 2014 Memorial Hermann Ironman Texasthis weekend.
Roberts recently came out of triathlon retirement after a successful acoustic tour of Western Sizzlin steak houses up and down the east coast.
“The free fixin’s bar and opportunity to stretch my musical wings beyond the creative confines of Ironband just wasn’t enough,” explains Roberts. “It was time to trade the guitar for a new pair of spandex shorts.”
While we’d like to be in Houston to cheer him on, alas we have to hold down the musical fort at the KC Triathlon so we wish Mike the best in Houston! To follow Mike (Bib #2390) and all the other athletes at Ironman Texas visit ironmantexas.com.
