Liz Miller will be back looking for her third consecutive win at the Los Alamos Triathlon Saturday.
Miller, who picked up solid victories in both 2012 and 2013, will try her luck again Saturday at the triathlon.
She will likely head out with the first wave of competitors, which head onto the 20-kilometer bike course starting at 7 a.m. — wave assignments, which were supposed to be released either Thursday evening or this morning, had not been released as of 2 p.m.
Triathlon registration closed at 5 p.m. Thursday.
Among the elite women who competed in 2013, Miller and one of her main competitors, Mary Uhl of Santa Fe, were scheduled to take part.

Miller finished last year's Los Alamos Triathlon in 1 hour, 11 minutes, 30 seconds.

However, in the men’s category, several regulars, most notably two-time defending champion Chip Cooper and 2013 runner-up Clay Moseley, weren’t listed as of late Thursday on an online page listing 2014 participants.
Following the elite competitors, the first wave is scheduled to go out at 7:10 a.m. and the second wave at 7:15 a.m. The competition starts and ends near the Larry R. Walkup Aquatic Center.
As of Friday afternoon, there were 123 individual athletes and 19 relay teams listed as having registered, which is similar to the number of competitors in 2013. The vast majority of those listed were from Los Alamos County and all but a small handful from Northern New Mexico, with only three entrants listed as being from out-of-state.
