Nice job...

I did it for my first time this year...  Agree, too many wood chips on the trails.

Jumping in on top of your friend at the swim?!  Had to admit I chuckled!  Great job on the best bike split yet, but man, what IS it with them and the wood chips?!  It's an offroad tri for a reason, and roots are to be expected.  Oh well, good work getting through them!

I also think they went in and CUT OUT any roots that ran parallel to the trail. Wouldn't want anyone to slip on a wet root, would we?

**grumble**

Maybe they'll have it paved by next week

Congrats (except for the jumping in on your friend part), and let's keep the weekend festivities down so they don't interfere with our racing shall we?

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?
