Transcript

  • 1. Race Day Rituals
  • 2. Thinking efficiently
    • Prep your release form in advance. Print/copy 20 or 30
    • 3. Park as CLOSE to pits as possible
    • 4. Register FIRST THING upon getting to race site
    • 5. Pin your skin suit FIRST, prep your race kit
    • 6. Think who can help you on race day (Pits, start line, etc). Beer works well to bribe. So do your kids.
    • 7. WATCH THE WEATHER! Think ahead.
  • Packing and prep
    • Pack the night before. Save stress day of your race.
    • 8. Warm up stuff = closest reach in car.
    • 9. Two of EVERYTHING (shoes, kits, helmets)
    • 10. Essentials:
    -Trainer/road wheel
    -Cheap fold-able chair (embro-ing, pinning, sitting)
    -Apres race clothing (warmth!!!)
    -Towels for you/rags for bike
    -Your own water supply (know the venue’s limitations!)
    • DEPEND UPON NO ONE! (This includes driving to races)
  • Eating & Drinking
    • Think lean and skinny. Don’t get the bloat.
    • 11. Eat 2-3 hours before race time. Be slightly ‘hungry’ at the line. You will not bonk.
    • 12. Drink but don’t over drink. Aim for one clear pee & you’re feeling empty and lean.
    • 13. Bump up with Gu at the line.
    • 14. Think fast.
    • 15. Think fast.
    • 16. Think fast.
  • Warm up
    • Get YOUR place in the pits (Fast in/Fast out)
    • 17. Determine early if ANYONE can help you (preferably PM before)
    • 18. Think about course recon *and* time on trainer (3 laps/20 min) before call ups.
    • 19. If crappy: Wear your EXTRA kit/shoes (give yourself extra time to change)
    • 20. If cold: Stay WARM. Tear off pants (e.g. Vermarc’s) are invaluable.
    • 21. HYDRATE! Pee before call ups
  • Start line – Time to race!
    • No call up? BE SMART! Position smartly amongst the massed waiting to get in YOUR spot
    • 22. Helper or Bag: Have someone collect your stuff OR carry a small bag in your pocket pack your coat/tear off pants and toss to course edge
    • 23. Gu-up/top off liquids
    • 24. TIME TO HUP, BUTTERCUP!
