No it’s not a watercraft with really big wheels, it’s the latest event in triathlon circles to be added to the ITU Word Championships. Essentially it’s the same as the long course, just without the run. It’s the Swim then through transition 1 and onto the bike and finishing off when the athlete passes into transition 2.
Maybe you are suffering from an injury that requires non-impact activity, maybe you just don’t like to run or maybe you have another event on the horizon and don’t want to wear yourself out. With the addition of Aquabike to Ultimate Capital Coast you can now be part of the action.
Starting at the Tomakin Beach, competitors will swim 2 laps of a box shape course, then exit the water for a short beach run; joining onto the Tomago River and then swimming to Transition.
A 3 lap course. The fast straights of George Bass Drive will allow athletes to dial in and crank out the watts.
