Augusta 70.3

4 min 9 sec ago

Augusta 70.3 is a week out and no topics or discussion on the Georgia Forum?  This is a Tri sight right?

I'm not racing it, but figured there would at least be some discussion or questions.

So here is a topic starter, what do you think about the swim situation?  As I understand it, the river had been closed for swimming because of "a substance seen in the water".  Don't know what substance apparently, but now it is reopened.  I do know the Savannah river is notorious for pollutants and a lot of industry, paper mills, etc, dump into that waterway.  I don't believe I'd want to swim in it.  Maybe they could find a better option for future races.

And another thing, I know WTC is expanding and adding races, but why a 70.3 and full (Chattanooga) on the same day in the same region?  The two are less than 4 hours apart driving distance.

Silver Comet advice - out & back vs. repeats

4 min 9 sec ago
I have a 6 hour ride coming up on my schedule, and planned to do it on the Silver Comet. Unfortunately, I've never been there (on the wrong side of town for me). Since I'm not familiar with water stops, bathrooms, etc., I'm looking for advice on the best way to ride it:

If I'm not a cyclist, is a fitting just a fitting? (Atlanta LBS question)

4 min 9 sec ago
I'm new to triathlons & my only bike right now is a MTB. I've been looking at going straight into a tri bike since I am not a cyclist & do not plan to be a cyclist (I'm a runner), so I have no need to go the road bike route first since group rides & other rides are not something I want to do.

Peachtree city sprint cancelled

Sat, 2014-09-20 08:10
In case the news isn't out there Kim decided to cancel the Peachtree city sprint race in August due to the train issue that effected the supersprint and international in May. Lake Peachtree is likely not going to be full by the august date of the sprint which would have forced the race back over to Lake McIntosh where the May race was held. Kim said in an email that since they could not guarantee the trains would not run during the race she would rather cancel the race than have that impact racers and finishing times. I appreciate the concern for a first class race and hope the Lake Peachtree issue will be dealt with soon so the races can go back to their normal locations (and I can get some open water practice!)
