Rode the first loop fairly hard, as I turned toward the subdivision loop I could see dark clouds headed our way. Finished the first loop at an average of just over 22mph, about 1/2 mile into the secondloop the rain started. Did a little fishtail trying to scrub some speed going into a turn, decided to shut it down and ride cautiously from that point on.

Finished in the pouring rain.
What would you do differently?:

Avoid the rain.
Transition 2

Rode into transition and they were telling everyone to rack it and pack it. Police shut us down due to rain and lightning.

Hey, at least you got on the bike.  I was in my 2 1/2 lane of the pool and Bert was just ahead of me.  (Poor Bert, this was his first TRI.)  It was a very WET day!!!  Foot in mouth
