RACE MORNING

  • Transition is opened early.  Get to the venue with enough time to get yourself set up in transition
  • NO bags or buckets are allowed to be left in transition.  Only race discipline items may be in transition
  • Wear your helmet if you are on your bike.  Have your helmet on and ready for inspection on entering transition
  • Your bike & swim cap may also be checked
  • Check the Race Schedule and make sure to attend the Race Briefing before the swim start, even if you are a team cyclist or runner.  It is your responsibility to know the rules and the course

TRANSITION AREA

  • Rack your bike on the bike racks marked for your race and race number
  • Towel on the ground with your bike/run shoes, race number, sunglasses, etc.
  • Helmet on the handlebars or on your bike seat (Leave the chinstrap unfastened)
  • Do not un-rack your bike unless your helmet is on
  • Check the flow of transition to make sure you know how to enter and exit the transition
  • A good rule to remember, place things in a sequence so you can grab them easily

POST-RACE

  • The transition will only open after all riders are off the bike course and onto the run course.  Listen to the announcer who will announce when the transition is open to retrieve your race items
  • Check you have all your items and only your items
  • You will need to have your Bike/Run Athlete Number and/or your Athlete band to show officials
  • Make sure you return your timing chip and band
