Has anyone done both Austin 70.3 and Augusta 70.3? If so, any comparisons on the bikes? I've looked up elevation changes, etc., but I was wondering what the overall impression was about the two. I did Austin three years ago (the year I bought my first bike - so it seemed hard) and have Augusta coming up. I'm just wondering if they're comparable.

I am doing Austin this year. I heard the roads are rough as hell. In two weeks I'm going to Austin and riding the route to see for myself. I'll let you know my opinion of it then. Have not done Augusta.

Thank you! I think my post was a bit confusing. I've already done Austin, and yes, the roads are not great. Good luck there!!

The triathlon bike vs. road bike quandary. Before you even ask the road bike vs. tri bike question, you should have a couple sprint triathlons or duathlons under your belt.
