R.B.'s MECHANIC WRENCHES AT TRIATHLON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS


In the Vitoria town square.  The greenest city in Spain for its many parks.  The city was beautiful.  Honestly, a park on every other corner and boulevard.  Gelato shops were everywhere.  I probably had ice-cream twice a day.  When in Spain, do as the Spainards.

Last Week I had the awesome opportunity to be the mechanic for the USA Triathlon National Team at the Long Distance Triathlon World Championships.  Athletes from all over the world traveled to Vitoria, Spain to compete in this (2.5mi swim, 75mi bike, and a 18.5mi run) triathlon.  A little over 100 US athletes competed in Vitoria.  Most of the participants were age-group amatuer athletes along with a few elite professionals.

My day started Tuesday night with 15+ hours of travel to arrive in Vitoria on Wednesday afternoon.  My job started promptly after arriving by helping athletes assemble their own personal bikes.  For the next three days, I stayed busy assembling bikes, adjusting shifting, adjusting brakes, loose headsets, etc...  Most of the repairs were simple.  However, there were challenges along the way too.  One athlete broke both bolts that held on his aerobar pad.  This took a bit of time to resolve but a few hours later we had it back together.

Race day was Sunday and my job started early before the race.  I helped athletes before the start making sure their bikes were ready to race.  Once the race started, my job was over.  Athletes are not allowed to receive outside repair assistance once the race has started.  This was a long race.  Most athletes finished in 7 to 9 hours while the pros finished in 5:30.    

Once the race was over, we drank good wine, ate some great food, packed all the bikes into boxes, and headed home.  I had a great time in Vitoria and met some incredible athletes.  I would like to thank USA Triathlon for the awesome opportunity and hope to be invited again next year to the 2013 World Championships.


5 BIKE TIPS TO PREPARE YOU FOR YOUR NEXT "TRAVEL" RACE.

1.  Buy and use new tires at the race.  New tires will decrease the chance that you will get a flat. You can always put your old ones back on after the race.

2.  Bring a spare rear derailleur hanger for your bike. Your bike shop will know what this is if you don't.

3.  Bring your shoes, pedals, and helmet in a seperate bag. If the airline looses your bike, you can rent another and still use your own shoes and pedals.

4.  Air in our tires is important. Long valve extenders can be problematic. Make sure your race wheels can be easily inflated.

5.  Tune-up your bike at your local bike shop the week before you leave.  Make sure they thouroughly check the bike for any parts that need to be replaced.

 


Trying to stay warm with David Slavinski the morning of the triathlon.  David is a super guy and had a great race!  1st overall in the male 40-44 age group.  World Champ.

Overall race winner Chris McCormack from Australia finished the race in 5:29.  I was lucky enough to have a great view of his transition onto the bike.


Gale Minard from Memphis competed at LD Triathlon Worlds.  She wore a smile the entire trip and had a great race.  Congratulations Gale!
