Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Bill Warburton chosen to coach US Team at Winter Tri World Champs

Posted By on Mon, Mar 7, 2011 at 5:52 PM

Local skiing and biking coach, Bill Warburton was just chosen to go to Finland to support the US Team at the Winter Triathlon World Champs in Jamijarvi. Bill is known in Bend as the Cycling Program Director and Nordic Coach for the Bend Endurance Academy.

A Winter Triathlon combines running with skate skiing and mountain biking on snow. Bill will help the US team with ski waxing and coaching. Last year, USA team member Rebecca Dussault won the 2010 Winter Triathlon World Championship individual title in Eidsvoll, Norway. The USA Women's team also won the Team Relay in 2010.



"All of our skiers had very fast skis year, so that certainly helped us do well," Warburton said. "The Europeans were impressed and maybe a little surprised with our representation as a team." Winter Triathlon is not very well-known in the US, but there are many events throughout the winter in Europe.
Athletes qualify for the World Championships based on their results from the USA National Winter Triathlon Championships in Soldier Hollow, UT. European competitors will be selected in March at the European Championships in Sweden.
