Super-Sprint (XS) distance
At 9 am, it was the XS triathlon. For several, it was the first time doing an open-water swim in a wetsuit, a new transition challenge!
- 400m swim in warm-yet-murky lake (dead fish, anyone?)
- 13km bike with the a very, very gradual uphill in the middle
- 3 km run around the lake
Olympic (M) distance
Then at 1 pm, it was the M distance:
- 1500m swim
- 40km bike, with 3 loops that included a 16% climb for several hundred meters
- 10km run around the lake 4x
And now exiting the lake and heading to the transition area:
LATEST ADDITION: Here are Hugo’s pics, capturing the action at various points throughout the M race – thanks Hugo!
