....hamstring cramp as you try and remove your feet from the shoes before T2. I love that if it happens.

Except in an Ironman of course, when they get wet again from time to time.


as they do in all distance races...but sometimes for differing reasons

i have stopped using talc for long races as it turns to fine paste and buggers my feet up. Fine for short races (up to Oly)

Shoes clipped in or not? Does it save much time in transition to have shoes clipped onto the pedals? I have been practicing a little and find it really tricky to get my feet in my shoes on the move.


yes..but only if you practise regularly and become skilled at it..



Quite. On the way out of transition I usually get overtaken by a few people running in bare feet whilst I'm clomping along in my cycling shoes, but usually retake most of the places within a few seconds of crossing the mount line when I just click my shoes straight onto the bike whilst they wobble about trying to get their feet into the shoes. Then about one time in three I see someone disappear into a hedge Very Happy

shoes on or off doesn't really matter; whatever you are comfortable with, usually means what is quickest too.

Just make it an easy to follow system that makes it smooth, plan it thoroughly too, so you know if you're going to strip off your wetsuit and carry it or run with it on for example. and you know exactly where your stuff is!

A well planned and executed transition can make up for an awful lot on a weak leg of the race sometimes; I made up over 60 places in T1 at outlaw last year, just with a little thought and planning Smile

Not everything has to happen *at* the mount line.

Mounting and putting feet in to shoes can happen some distance from the mount line and with some time difference between them.

Towel in T1 bag and then socks and bike shoes on in transition, but then my T1 times are usually appalling!

I tend to leave the shoes clipped in as I come into T2, especially if it is dry. Often leave a spare pair of socks in T2 bag in case.

I think I've only ever gone sockless once in a sprint about 7 years ago. If I was doing those distances again I'd probably do it, but even for a standard I'd probably put socks on, my feet used to be like leather but not these days.
