KNOW THE SWIM COURSE

Work out where the buoys are. If there’s a swim recce – take ad­van­tage and do it! Some­times it’s hard to see the buoys so look for land­marks to help guide you.

KNOW YOUR BIKE STRENGTHS

If you have good bike-han­dling skills work the cor­ners to gain an ad­van­tage. If you have high power, work the straights.

KEEP EN­ERGY LEV­ELS UP

Make sure you’ve kept hy­drated prior to the race and through­out the start so you don’t start to die off to­wards the end.

PRAC­TISE TRAN­SI­TIONS

Work them into your train­ing ses­sions and prac­tise switch­ing from sport to sport.

WORK ON YOUR STRENGTHS

While im­por­tant to im­prove over­all, don’t for­get to work on your strengths. There’s al­ways room for those ad­di­tional gains no mat­ter how small.
