Snazziest Tri Suit Ever

pippip Posts: 170
When i was doing Trentham Tri on sunday i saw the funkiest tri suit ever.It was a guy wearing a leopard skin tri suite.I had to laugh when he passed me on the bike and then when i saw him on the run.This got me thinking if anyone else has seen any really original,funny or totally outrageous costumes when doing a tri

    I assume you've not seen the Team Laws kit then ?

    And second place behind Team Laws has to be the BCTTT flower-power suit.

    two awesome bits of kit-age.

    you can't beat a field of racers wearing clouds and rainbows, or flowers and butterflys!

    Nope I agree with Pip..... this guys tri-suit wiped the floor with all tri-suits.

    You seriously would've needed a real brass neck to wear it. It was truely awesome

    When i did the Marshman in May there was a guy on the run wearing a full arm and leg leopard print suit/costume complete with tail which i thought was brilliant. can't open the pic so cant check but maybe the same guy

    Personally I can't think of anything more funny/outrageous as me in lycra

    There was I large bloke at an event in Bovington recently wearing a tri suit which consisted of large yellow and pink squares, and which was emblazoned with 'Team Battenburg'.

    And at Wimbleball recently I finished behind a young lady wearing a Barbie tri suit!

    Leopardskin guy looked impressive at Trentham, he seemed to be running at a fair lick too.

    The missus has already delared this the kinkiest sport ever; "You cover yourself with lubricant, put on a rubber suit and then go thrashing about in the water with a hundred other people for half an hour. Then you all strip those off to reveal lycra get ups that leave absolutely nothing to the imagination...".
  • I must be going to all the wrong events.....no leopard skins in sight!

    Or Barbie girls

    In all seriousness, are mankinis allowed to be worn ? I would imagine they would be quite comfortable to run in and also very supportive of the family jewels.

    Wear a mankini at your peril matey

    A guy at the Forestman had a suit on that was printed muscles like a Greys Anatomy picture. Bleurghhh

    Mankini? Comfortable? Running? With all that weight, pulling on your shoulders...or is that just me?
