Room for improvement, but it's the first TriRock Lake Geneva. I would do it again. Some areas on the bike that could be changed.

I looked at the swim buoys and start thinking, "Man! How am I ever going to swim that? That looks like a very long distance from the bridge. I have never done it in one go." There's no turning back.
