MASTER THE SWITCH
Use our guide for a smooth transition from water to bike and you’ll be gone in 60 seconds
10sec GOGGLES UP But keep them on until you have unzipped. Remove both your cap and your goggles as you pull your arms out, tucking them into the sleeve so you have two hands free. 30sec HALF-TIME Now unzip your wetsuit, but don’t stop running as you pull it down to your hips. Leave your legs in fully, so you can sprint freely until you reach your bike. 50sec THE BIG PULL At your bike, pull your wetsuit down as far as it’ll go in one forceful movement. You need to be quick: once water drains out of the suit, it becomes harder to take off. 60sec FINAL RELEASE Rub your shins and ankles with Vaseline before the race. Now stand on your wetsuit with one foot. In one move, yank the other foot up and out. Repeat and you’re free.
