Triathlon Transition 101


You can train to swim, bike and run to your heart’s content, but if you can’t transition from one to the other quickly and efficiently, there may not be much of a point come race day.


Transitions are your races within the big race. It’s a whole other skill on top of swimming, biking and running, and one you can’t overlook.


You have to be calm, control your movement and be effective.


For instance: When should you take your wetsuit off? Where does it go afterward? Does your helmet go on first or last? What about your sunglasses, gloves and socks?


Triathlon transition questions can be endless, but the resources below can help.
