4 days after returning from the half ironman/trip in Cuba we relayed the short LA Triathlon Series race #1. Giving the other boys the choice of which legs they wished I ended up on bike. That is just fine. Was fun to red line it at lactate threshold in full TT mode for 20 minutes. Great friend "T.M." was out in force with his camera getting great shots of all. That's friend and runner of the team: Chris. Displaying some serious hard-earned hardware for 1st place.
Terry took an awesome individual shot. Sent it to me the next day!!!
Then I received yet another from the "official" but "not as professional" photographer hired for the event later in the week. And in his pic it is obvious there is big time wheel sucking /drafting going on behind me. Seems to be quite popular these days. Here a 57 year old dude flys by on an 20+ year old -out- dated 650c wheeled bike........only to have others jump on my wheel. Something wrong and I really don't like it. I don't do it. And I don't care for others letting me do the work for them. In a race anyway. In the old days there were race officials on the courses. But it's kind of like CHP on the freeways now : Unfortunately very rare.
