The Carmel Sprint Triathlon was held this morning, Sunday, April 18, 2010. My 4 year-old & I biked to 110th St and watched the turnaround point of the bike portion.
This rider was the first female to reach the turnaround of the bike leg. (Shameless plug: notice she’s on a Serotta bike!)
Here’s a pic of BGI alumnus Scott Mansberger, riding his Cannondale road bike:
There was a freeze warning last night and the 9am temperature was in the low 40s. It was interesting to see folks racing side by side with completely different biking clothing. There were jackets, sweatshirts, bare arms, & even some bare torsos.
I have no picture, but here’s a shout out to racer #285: “Your helmet was on backwards.” I suppose that’s easily done in a hurried transition from the Carmel High School pool.
Among all the high performance bikes, there were plenty of racers on mountain bikes and hybrid bikes. This woman is riding a Trek hybrid bike, which is built more for comfort and less for speed. She must have had a strong swim, because she was racing in the midst of men on $3,000+ triathlon-specific bikes.
This lady is showing a very efficient & aerodynamic position on the bike:
