Overall Rank = 16/54

Pre-race routine:

Tried to stay warm with all the wind and rain. Waited to hear if the swim would go or not - it didn't. :(
  • 04m 47s
  • 1 kms
  • 04m 47s  min/km

For such a short run, it really hurt for some reason. My arms were really tight and tired (WTF?) I didn't go all out, just a hard steady pace.
What would you do differently?:

Have it be a swim instead of a run. :)
Transition 1
  • 00m

- Helmet was sitting backwards on bike
- a bit slow getting bike shoes on and closed
- Had a bit of trouble getting clipped in at the line
What would you do differently?:

Setup T1 a little more carefully and practice more.
  • 36m 2s
  • 20 kms
  • 33.30 km/hr

T1 is included in the time. Actual speed was easily over 34 km/hr.
I felt awesome on the bike. For the first 2 km, I was passing people constantly and even for the rest of the segment, I was passing people. Only had one guy pass me and stay ahead. I got into a very comfortable pace and just pushed hard all the way. Saw Miguel just before the turnaround and set my sights on catching him. :) Managed to do so about 2.5km from the finish.

Transition 2
  • 00m

Pretty good I guess. Still pretty slow compared to others I'm sure but better than the last race I think. Everything was soaked!
What would you do differently?:

Not much.
  • 26m 27s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 17s  min/km

T2 is included in the time.
Run sucked as expected - I really need to run more. Just pure pain and suffering for 25 mins. :( Andrew caught me about 1km from the finish and I wasn't able to stay with him. Tom caught me right at the end and beat me by one second.
What would you do differently?:

Run more!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough running and lack of a swim segment. :)
