No going back, gear all in transition…

The organisation is all a little strange here, but on relfection makes perfect sense.  After having your bike/helmet checked you are in T1/T2.  It’s up to you to put your bike and run bag on it’s hook and obviously rack your bike.  With the start/finish on the sea front changing area from the swim is on the beach, then you run up to the road where your bike is.  Run bag is near my bike, no idea where the changing area is, but I guess follow the leader rules apply.

Its quote bizzare the make-up of the field about 80% male and all old knackers like me, check out where the Kona slots are…
