The Outlaw looms large,only another 6 weeks and managed my 1st iron swim yesterday in 1hour 31mins so i'm quite pleased with that.If i do that on the day i'll be more than happy.It was in the pool though so possibly add a few extra mins.Got some bifg training rides coming up including the Etape on 11th july.Gives me 2 weeks to recover,no probs.I hope
Yeah defo meet up at Outlaw.When i get my number through i'll pm you Zac
There are 'desuiters' to help with the wetsuit, desuiting takes place outside the marque to keep the interior dry.
If OSB do the same as last year you will get three bags; swim/bike, bike/run and dry bag for your end of event change etc. Good idea to have drinks/bars/gels/sunscreen etc in both as well as discipline specific stuff. Bit of a crush and tangle on the hooks and an obvious one make sure Dry bag, first then Bike/Run then Swim/Bike, then when Swim/Bike change completed take just a second to take off the Bike/Run bag, put the Swim/Bike bag on the hook then put Bike/Run bag on top. I did see one chap in a right fluster with the bags. I understand that OSB are going to have a bigger Transition and more space on the racks.
