Guidance needed please

Postby Cornbred » Fri Jun 03, 2011 4:45 am

I thought I was ready for this Tri, but am now starting to stress a bit. I am really kinda clueless in this whole thing. Is there a pre-race meeting in the morning? Where do i put the bike number? Do i put my own body marking numbers on myself? Are Camelbacks legal? It starts at 730, what time do i need to be there? Dang I have so many questions in my mind I am starting syking myself out. Please any guidance suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Relax, you will be fine! There is a pre-race meeting at 7:00. Placement of bike number depends on your bike. I put mine on the seatpost, but you just need to put it somewhere where it is easily visible by the refs, from either side. Do not body mark yourself, they will do that tomorrow morning at the race site when you rack your bike in transition. To my knowledge, camelbacks are legal. I would advise that you get to the race site about an hour prior to the race to allow time for bike and run transition set-up, become familiar with the logistics of the event, warm-up and visit the porta potty...

Good luck!

(oops- Trey and I posted at the same time)

first: breathe, breathe, relax....

1. there IS a pre-race meeting- once transition closes (about 7)

2. bike number goes on your seatpost, or on the downtube or on the top tube. Just put it where race officials can see it as they pass you on the motorcycles.

3. you'll get bodymarked when you go into transition

4. camelbaks are legal- drink away- it's gonna be hot!

5. transition opens at 6. Racks will be assigned. Get there about 6-6:30 to set up, walk transition to know where your bike is when you come out of the swim, get a feel for where you'll go in/out of transition.


You'll do GREAT!! Don't worry!!
