One of my best overall swims. Good lines to the buoys. Good sighting. and good speed.
What would you do differently?:

not looked up between the 3 and 4 buoy this got me a little out of rythem and this cost me sometime.
Transition 1
  • 04m 2s

Thsi was a 2 /10 of a mile transition. Up stairs and over gravel through sand. It was a horrible transition. The I could not get clipped in. I never have this proble but today was a different story. I have never seen a worse transition from water to bike.

I got a flat with a half mile to go on the bike. I rode it flat so you can imagine the wear on my legs. But we made it in. I checked rim and no damage to rim or tire. Brand new tire just changed out last week.
Transition 2
  • 02m 15s

forgot my visor and went back to pick it up. I also hated having to rack from only the right sidebecuase my bike was on the letf this meant having to go all the way down the aisle.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

flat tire and running hills.

Event comments:

Team magic what more can we say. They always do a good job. i just hope they will come up with a different transition for the T1.

Too bad for the flat. You still had an awesome bike time. Good luck with your races this year.
