    • 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;

  • Hi Anne. When I came out of the swim, I also was disqualified. After a few minutes arguing I decided to continue with my race. On finishing I realised I had lost out on the 60-64 category due to the DQ. However, I disputed this with the race referee etc.. showed the ITU and ETU rules on my iPad.. they therefore had to reinstate all DQ'd triathletes. It was because this is a canarian Triathlon rule.. and this race, for the first time was in the Canarian championships.. Sorry you pulled out.. I had other friends who did so too.. but glad that I continued as I knew after 27 years in Triathlon that this DQ was nonsense.. The organiser was ever so apologetic as he knew this was wrong.. my friend was offered a free entry to the 2017 event.. I'm not sure I'm going to do it this year.. although still thinking about it..
