5430 Long Course Race Simulation
Dear Athletes and Friends:
D3 Multisport is conducting a 5430 Long Course Race Simulation on Sunday July 19th. We are doing this race simulation on the 19th to coincide with the BAM Swim Race at 8:30 (1 mile or 2 mile option). This will give some of you the option of swimming in the open water, biking the full course and running off the bike – thus giving you the opportunity to see how your nutrition and pacing strategy is working. I will be giving a short pre-ride talk about the course, pacing and nutrition.
We plan to start the ride around 10:00 am (unless no one swims the 2 mile, then we’ll start around 9:30.
What: 5430 Long Course Race Rehearsal
When: July 19th 8:30 am (swim start), Bike Start at 10:15am
Where: Boulder Reservoir/race course
Who: 1) D3 Athletes, BTC members and friends racing the Long Course event who want to preview the course and get some racing tips
2) D3 athletes who aren’t racing but would like the camaraderie of training with fellow D3 athletes and learning some training tips as well
3) Friends or family members of D3 / BTC athletes who would like to join please pay a $10 drop-in fee
Bonus: Lunch afterwards in Boulder – come join the group for some camaraderie and food!!!
PLEASE RSVP: Let us know if you’ll be doing the BAM swim, and how many miles, so we know what time we’ll start the bike on Sunday. Send emails to Mike@d3multisport.com – thanks!!
