    Don't bother with aero bars. Bike leg is a bit technical, and crowded later in the day

    Check your start time - waves go half the morning. You may think about bringing a snack if you start later

    First waves are "Licensed" athletes. That's not elite, but those with a tri federation membership (like USAT). Use it!

    Saw some bike crash on the course with aggressive riding. It's technical, don't get impatient around the corners

    Amazing race. I've done this twice, and would love to go back again - except I think I'll find another ITU World. These events are GREAT!
