Very odd. I got on the bike and thought "I don't have it today. Just take it easy and leave some in the tank for the run." Well apparently my B Game this year is still 1 second faster than my best run on this course EVER. NICE!!

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.
