    • TT bikes are fine.. I've used mine every time I've done it.. The first year I did it the smallest gear I had was 39/25, but then I changed to 39/28.. This was better for the hill up to tequise.. Hills aren't huge...and the downhills are great for TT.. It's a nice undulating course...with long steady uphills and long downhills(out and back)..

  • I am confused about the race number rule. I was disqualified for wearing my race number under my wetsuit during the swim. I questioned this but was told three times I was definitely disqualified for doing this, so I stopped racing after the swim. I don't want to make this mistake again so I won't wear my race number under my wetsuit next year but I feel the official was wrong this year. ITU rules (I think ETU and ITU rules are the same)? state: Rule number 2.9. Race numbers: c.) Official race numbers may be worn in the bike and wetsuit swim segments;
