Transition 1
  • 02m 21s
  • 45m
  • 20 kms
  • 26.67 km/hr

Tried to move contact lens back to the proper position but lens ended up falling out. Had to bike with one good eye. Going back and forth from sun / shade was difficult w/o good depth perception. Ended up misjudging turnaround, crashed and fell big time. Chain fell off. I was half blind and couldn't see well enough to put it back on. Fortunately, race crew helped and put chain back but lost ~5'. Some scrapes and bruises and sprained wrist.
Transition 2
  • 01m 29s
  • 27m 57s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 59s  min/mile

Felt surprising good considering. Very hot (28C, but felt like 35C with humidex by then) but I hydrated well throughout and ended passing a lot of exhausted people. (Of course, I didn't go that hard on the bike, and had a few min rest (9' in Z1/2) while we tried to put the chain back on).

According to Garmin, course is 3.22 mi, 8:41min/mi.

Post race
Warm down:

Stopped at medic and cleaned up, got ice for wrist.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Getting kicked in the eye, losing a contact and crashing.
