Pasadena Triathlon Club hosted a Race Rehearsal for the Pasadena Sprint Triathlon. That’s a mouthful.
The Rose Bowl was a beehive of activity today. PTC had to relocate the Race Rehearsal from one parking lot to another, which caused mild confusion. I think almost everybody found us.
Lynda greeted all the new triathletes individually and gave them all a run down as they arrived. VELO Pasadena and HRach provided bike support. Changing tires and tubes, showing off some different bikes. Braun Chiropractor Derrick was out supporting the event too, stretching out the athletes before the workout.
Lynda gave a course preview from arriving in the morning to a blow by blow of the run – bike – swim. She went over bike mount line and dismount line. She demo’d how to run your bike through transition.
Bill and Luis lead the athletes on a short run loop and then a short bike loop.
Then, all the athletes gave it a spin. 3 cycles: run – bike – run – bike – run – bike. Btw, it was a warm 90F day in SoCal in Mid-Febrary. They all worked up a good sweat!
Thanks to Lynda, Steve, Amy, Yuri, Bill, Luis, Anton, Todd, Corinna, Lisa, Kirk, Gregg, Dave for making the new triathletes feel welcome and ready for their race!
