⭐20 QUICK RACE TIPS | by Jason Loh

Things that you should not overlook:

1. Make sure your bike/tires are in good condition, components/screws are tight (especially those who dismantle their bike parts due to traveling reasons or etc)

2. Make sure you have sufficient nutrition supply, get the regular type/brands that you have been used during races. Avoid having a change of brands before even trying it.

3. Always bring spares tubes/tires & tool kit into transition area, you will never know your tire might be already punctured or having mechanical issue (without even knowing) before you even start the race.

4. Ensure the valve of your spare tube is long enough to fit into your deep profile wheels or put on the valve extender on the tubular if necessary. And strap them tight and firm.

5. Make sure your bike is engaged in moderate-light gear when you rack your bike. It might not be a good idea to start your ride with a heavy gear after the mounting line.

6. Use appropriate tire pressures based on the road condition. Lower pressure if the road is in wet condition.

7. Make sure your helmet strap is not buckle up and untwisted when you place your helmet on the bike before the race starts.

8. Make sure the lenses of your shades are wiped clean. You might leave some sweat stains on it from your previous rides or runs.

9. Check the weather forecast to predict what kind of lenses you’re going to wear. It might not be a wise choice to wear a heavily tinted lenses on a cloudy race morning.

10. Anxiety might occurs hours before race, make sure you rack your bike at your assigned parking lot. If not, you might not find your bike/shoes after your run or ride.

11. Use a bright coloured ribbon or towel on the bike rack at your spot, so you could identify your bike easier and faster during transition.

12. Understand the flow at the transition area, get to know the entrances for RUN-IN, RUN-OUT, BIKE-IN, BIKE-OUT and the flow towards your parking lot. Visualize and run through a few times before the race starts.

13. Bring a headlight to help you set up your transition area as the sky will be still dark.

14. Bring spare contact lenses if you’re wearing one. Sometimes unfortunate incidents might happen, well it happened once on me.

15. Those who are using electronic gear shifter on the bike (Di2 or eTap), make sure the battery is sufficient enough for the race.

16. Wake up earlier to clear your bowel before you leave your house on race day morning. But bring toilet paper anyhow…. just in case 😉

17. Use Vaseline at the usual chafing area to prevent irritation.

18. Use elastic shoelaces for your running shoes.

19. Prepare your race drink a night before so that the powdered drink is fully dissolved on the race day morning.

20. During transition, try to do everything standing or squatting, putting your butt on the ground will make the whole process slower.
