keep it sim­ple

Be a min­i­mal­ist in tran­si­tion! Don’t eat or drink (see my nu­tri­tion tips on p45), change your clothes more than you need to, wave to fans or comb your hair... you’re in a race, so be fast!

Your tran­si­tion area should not look like a Hi­malayan base camp, ei­ther. Min­imise the amount of gear and clut­ter by prac­tis­ing what can be elim­i­nated and lay­ing out the stuff you re­ally need in a way that makes it easy to find and use. Re­mem­ber that most races have more aid sta­tions than you will (or should ever) need, so when in doubt, get rid of it! Tran­si­tions are op­por­tu­ni­ties to gain time on your ri­vals, so take full ad­van­tage of them.
