Hard swim, first time to do that distance. Pace myself little better next time, make the T1 easier. Shoulders and arms very rubbery.
What would you do differently?:

Pace self
Transition 1
  • 00m

Lost a shoe off the pedals just outside of tranistion area when mounting bike.
  • 50m 30s
  • 20 kms
  • 23.76 km/hr

very bad bike, completely not prepared for it, spent very few hours on bike prior to race. #1 reason why i placed so low in standings. Need big improvements.

Fell off bike at top of largest hill, not paying attention and ran into curb, de-railed chain.
Transition 2
  • 00m

T2 was ok, i did pass some people who dismounted bike in front of me.
  • 26m 56s
  • 4.5 kms
  • 05m 59s  min/km

satisfied with the run, what i expected. Hard first one km then loosened up and found rythom. Need to improve pace but was satisfied with the run.

Event comments:

Good race, first triathlon so I do not have much or anything to compare it to. Need to improve the biking component of my race. Think the front brake may have been rubbing the rim. Will disconnect brake and see if that makes it easier to pedal.
