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.
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.
