Start steady and pick up the pace
crying. The rest is easy going; stay left unless overtaking, consume some fluid and fuel during your spin, don’t push too hard up hills or into the wind and save your legs for the run to come.
T2 CYCLE to RUN
While riding the last few kilometres visualise your next moves.
You’ve returned to the transition in Mooloolaba and reach the dismount line where you disembark in fashionable style with grace and elegance... yeah? We’ll see. Proceed through the cycle entry and find your rack where your shoes eagerly await your soul (yes, punny). Rack your bike then remove your helmet (must occur in this order) before making your way to the run exit.
You’ve saved some energy for this final 10km stretch. You can do it. Go out steady and pick up the pace, allowing some slower stages during each climb over the Alex Hill.
This is only short, but you’ll go up it three times so save yourself for the flat and that final descent to the finish line.
With hydration, drink most of your fluid during the bike leg so your run only requires sips from the aid stations and possibly one gel (hit of sugar).
Most importantly, throw some high fives and encouragement around. Goofy will be out there lifting spirits!
