Tri Edge Endurance Radio
With many Tri Edge members racing over the weekend alongside several thousand other participants and spectators, I am sure there are a lot of mixed emotions now in our final day. Looking out the window to the pouring rain as a coach I wanted to give you some last minute advice that I hope you can share with freinds for tomorrows race!
The weather forecast for the weekend it is clear that we have a high probability of RAIN! Yes, once again the bike skills are going to get a test on this highly technical course.
Given the high chance of stormy weather here are some tips:
Aside from the specifics above here are some general thoughts for you to have a great day.
Everyone should have your own race plan. Its not too late at this stage to give it some thought. Tri Edge has an excellent race speed calculator for you to use http://www.triathloncoachingsg.com/triathlon-race-pace-calculator.html
The Dreaded 'Carbon Corner'
Carbon Corner is named as such due to how many bikes go down here every year. Elites through to first timers find this corner exceedingly difficult to gauge and the corner has taken hundreds down. Here are 3 youtube clips we caught of some of last years crashes.
Points to note to avoid crashing on 'Carbon Corner' (aside from points made above)
Overall, use this corner to rest up a little. Drive out of the corner and ride hard through the rest of the course. There is no point in getting a 1/2 second gain here, just to push a little too hard and loosing 5 seconds and some skin on the ground!
Enjoy the weekends racing. Tri Edge will be there competing and also helping anyone who needs some last minute tips.
