ITU Worlds - the new thread

Recommended Posts

I remember in my 2nd or 3rd tri.  Setting up a towel hat shoes socks gel race number.

 

Young guy next to me.  Shoes and race number. 

 

I looked between the two a couple times and gave myself a face palm.  Last time I wore socks and had a towel in anything shorter than a 70.3.

According to the latest email we are not allowed to  leave a towel in transition - how are we meant to dry our feet ?

ITU worlds multisport 2018 they gave us crates for our gear.

ITU worlds standard/sprint 2017 was separate transitions. Small bag was the go as they transported T2.

All variable it seems.

Never dried my feet in a single trial I've done. Just use a brightly coloured towel to find my bike!

Depends on the run from swim to bike, some places I have had to wipe mud, grass or dirt off my feet!

Same as me. Guess I'll have to tie a balloon to the rack or put some baby powder on the ground then :)

That's why you use manjy tri-shoes and not your nice shiney white bike shoes 😜

Athlete names are all listed on the app now. Can't sort them into categories though. Unless someone knows a tricky way.

Am I right in saying that tickets for The Athletes dinner or $160 for partners? Or did I do something wrong? I would love it if Daz would join me for this but $160 is crazy! And they're not letting you use other people's tickets if they can't attend. I don't know how this works. Maybe it's a wristband thing.

The athletes don't have to pay this - it's included in what we already paid. This is for extra tickets  

But I expect caviar, lobster, an open bar and diamond excrusted utensils

can anyone tell me what the 223 on my kit is for, race number?

Number of aus itu world champs 

Prior to worlds 2017. It's more now, but the uniform is the same. 

That's the problem with putting a number on the suit. And they would have to change the bit about being able to use the kit from the previous year.
