I got a question on my blog were I put my spare tire or tire sealant when I raced Ironman 70.3 St.Pölten last weekend. Instead of giving the answer short I thought I just could write a short article about my race setup and why I choose the solutions I do.
My sponsor Boardman Bikes have supplied me with their finest triathlon bike with aerodynamic abillities in world class. It would be a shame to ruin the endless hours of work to optimize the aerodynamic with a poor setup, which I belive a lot of people actually do.
If you take all the superbikes in triathlon and put them in the wind tunnel you will get a list from best to worst. If you take the best one and put a round bottle on the down tube it will become the poorest performer. That says alot about how important the setup actually is. Therefore I go for a minimalistic style, with everything I need, but nothing more.
This is how I have my Boardman TTE Signature on race day. A stock Boardman TTE Signature with Zipp 808 tubular wheels (until I get my Enve 8.9 SES Tubulars). The only thing I add is a water bottle in the cage behind the seat.
Any questions why I choose the solutions I do, and not the other, please feel free to ask.
I am a 33 year old PRO triatlete. My goal is to swim, bike and run as fast as possible, and enjoy the journey. All my adventures and triathlon related stuff is well documented on this blog.
