how to not draft.
I'm competing, or rather surviving my first tri on Sunday but have been looking at drafting rules. I'm from time trialling on relatively open roads/ dual carriageways that make it easy to avoid.
From British Triathlon rules; "Standard distance and shorter races: the bicycle draft zone will be 10 metres long measured from the leading edge of the front wheel. A competitor may enter the draft zone of another competitor, but must be seen to be progressing through that zone. A maximum of 20 seconds will be allowed to pass through the zone of another competitor;"
I know the course, as I'm local, there are relatively short straights with several 90 degree roundabout exits. How difficult is it to avoid staying out of the zone?
