Leeds Xpress Tri
Not very big in comparison to the other threads on here, but it will be my 1st tri.
Has anyone else done this one?
i'm down for this and so is my brother. it's his first triathlon so you aren't alone!
Haven't done it, but I'll be there this year.
Hope the weather's good
Cycled the route yesterday.
Some fast downhills on the way out with a few inclines - nothing major.
Only 1 set of lights to negotiate and the roundabout at the halfway point is quite big so you can carry some speed around it.
The road are lovely and smooth and no pot holes anywhere.
Few slight inclines on the way back and a bit of a haul the last 3 or so miles, but nothing a novice/beginner would have to walk with.
Was pootling along and did it in 57 minutes - there was a strong head wind and I had to go slow on the hills to let my mate keep up (down to 6mph on the hills!).......
Will be aiming for sub 45 minutes on the day.
