Welcome to The Austin Tri
Welcome to Austin and the 2011 AVIA Austin Triathlon! Austin has long been the hub of triathlon in Texas, as well as one of the triathlon hot spots in the country. The AVIA Austin Triathlon was created to offer the very best triathlon experience that Austin has to offer, whether you are a top professional, a dedicated age grouper, a first time triathlete, or just celebrating your fitness. Thank you for choosing to spend your Labor Day weekend in Austin with us, and we will do our best to ensure that you have a fantastic experience. It’s no secret that we are experiencing the hottest summer ever on record in Austin. Labor day is sure to be hot, so we’ve made a few adjustments to the event that will help you survive the heat. First, we switched up the normal wave start order a bit, to allow some of the older age groups to get an earlier start. Second, we shorted the wave start intervals to 4 minutes so that everyone will begin their race a little earlier in the day. We also have all the usual great amenities including a running hat, super stocked aid stations, ice cold souvenir water bottles, and a finish line festival with tons of choices of free food and cold beverages. Please be smart out there, drink plenty of water, and let’s all help each other reach the finish line safely. Dan Carroll & Jack Murray

There is Mandatory Bike Check In on Sunday before the event. Each participant must check their bike into the Transition Area on Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM. To enter the transition area each athlete must have their race number affixed to their bike and helmet and their athlete wristband on their wrist. Bike check in will occur at the Bike Start / Bike Finish side of the Transition Area. Transition racks will be ordered by event distance and swim wave. Participants may rack anywhere on the racks assigned to their wave. Please do not put plastic bags on your bikes. It can cause your bike to blow off the rack or get caught in the gears. Any plastic will be removed.
Bike Check Out
Bikes will not be allowed out of Transition until most of the participants have completed the bike course. It is expected that this will be around 11 AM, but there is no guarantee on the exact time. Participants will be allowed back into Transition before then, but bikes may not be removed from the racks. Bike Check Out at an event of this size can be frustrating if you are not prepared. Please be patient and be courteous to your fellow participants while in transition during the race. Each participant deserves to have the same experience regardless of their speed. Bikes will be allowed to exit the Transition Area while participants are still on the run course. Therefore, all exiting participants will be directed along the bike course underneath the S. First St. bridge towards the Hyatt. This will eliminate the need for participants to cross the run course with their bikes. You must have your wristband and your race number on to enter transition and remove your bike.
Body Marking will take place starting at 5 AM at the Swim / Run side of the Transition Area. Please apply sunscreen only after body marking.
Wave Starts Please wear the swim cap provided in your participant bag.
Note: Some swim cap colors are repeated. Make sure you start with the correct wave.
The Olympic Distance transition area will close at 6:40 AM. The Sprint Distance transition area will close at 8:15 AM. You must leave the transition area when it closes. The swim wave staging area will be to the west side of the swim start.

Racks for the Relays are located in the Sprint Transition Area, although the Relay is an Olympic distance. The exchange point for each leg will be at the bike rack. After the swim, the cyclist may remove the bike from the bike rack once the swimmer has arrived at the rack spot. The runner may start the run from the rack spot once the cyclist has returned and racked the bike. Each relay team member shall have an “R” marked on their left calf.
Weather Contingency Plan
In the event of foul weather, the start time of this event may be delayed by up to 1 hour. Should the weather conditions be unsafe for the swim, this event will be changed to a bike-run with distances of a 40 Km bike and a 5 Km run. The sprint distance will change to a bike-run with distances of a 27 Km Bike and a 5 Km run. The duathlon will use a time trial start based upon the same order. If the weather makes it too dangerous for cycling, the event will become a 5 Km run for all participants.

Before your triathlon, have a system in place to check your equipment. It is recommended that you start with what you’ll use first in the tri and work through to the equipment that you will use last.
1. Check your goggles, check that the strap and nose bridge are not going to break on the
start line or during the swim, check that the seals have not perished. If the lens is scratched consider a new pair for racing and keep the old pair for the pool.
2. Check your wetsuit for potential tears, check the seams are not frayed and likely to split, if so
get it fixed in enough time. Also look for holes and cuts, these can be glued and stitched to prevent water entering the suit and to make the suit streamlined.
3. Check Your Bike. There is a lot to check here so if you don't know what to do, get down to 4. Check your helmet, the plastic shell needs to be firmly affixed to the foam and the strap should
your local bike store (and try to learn). Nothing is worse than athletes arriving at the pre race inspection needing a new frame or another wheel for safety. not be frayed and needs to fit firmly. Check that there are no cracks or dents as these will likely not pass in a pre race check.
5. Check your running shoes. Look to see that they are not worn out of alignment or that the
midsole is crushed. Also check that the elastic laces or the laces and toggles are working well. Check that they are washed clean and dry.

Here is a logical progression that you may want to go through when you get to the race site:
1. Arrive Early! A half hour won't be enough
time to get everything done. Give yourself an hour, even more if you can, so that you won't be rushed.
Now that your bike is racked and you have your stuff from registration, andif you arrived early enough, you should have plenty of time to get ready to race. Here’s what to do next:
2. Make sure you have your Race Number
and pins or number belt, Swim Cap, bike frame number (this should already be on your bike), and helmet number.
1. First off, you need to do something with
3. You will need to get Body Marked. Body
Marking is essential so that the race organization knows who you are if you lose your number, and the photographers use it to identify your photos. You should have your race number with you when you go to get Body Marked.
that race number. You have to finish the race with the number on the front of your body, so you can either use the pins you were given to pin it to the shirt you’ll wear during the race, or you can use a number belt if you have one. The number must be worn during the run.
2. Next, organize your gear next to your
4. After body marking take your gear with
you to the transition area (the big fenced in area with the bike racks) and claim a spot of real estate for yourself. There's nothing worse than arriving with plenty of time to spare, but forgetting to rack your bike FIRST, and then ending up with little or no room to lay out your gear. You can 'rack' your bike by either hooking the seat over the top rail of the bike rack or by hooking the handlebars/brake levers over the top rail. The choice is yours whichever works better for you. Take a look around to see what others are doing, and then follow suit. Once your bike is racked, you can drop your gear next to it - there should be time to lay it out neatly later. You can pump your tires up beforehand, or in the transition area - the choice is up to you. Please be considerate towards your fellow participants and do not hog space in the transition area. There should be enough room for at least 7 bicycles on each rack.
bike. It’s a good idea to have a towel on the ground to lie out your stuff. Make sure you have your bike shoes and running shoes laid out in the open with the laces open so they are easy to get into. Have your helmet either on the ground near your shoes or on your handlebars, with the strap undone so it’s easy to put on. A good idea is to have your helmet sitting upside-down with your sunglasses in the helmet. That way, you put on your sunglasses and then follow that with the helmet and it’s hard to forget either. Next to or underneath your running shoes you may want to place a hat for the run because the sun can get pretty hot by the end of the race. Make sure you have your water bottle(s) filled before the race as well.
3. You should be pretty organized by now
5. Be sure to put your timing chip on before
exiting transition for the final time before the start. The chip should go around your left ankle using the strap provided. The chip must be worn throughout the entire race.
so you can use any spare time to familiarize yourself with the flow of traffic once the race starts. Figure out where the swim finishes and where you’ll have to run to get your bike. Locate a fixed landmark (garbage cans may get moved) or count the number of bike racks to your bike, so that you don’t get lost looking for your bike. It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack if you don’t have some idea where to start. Continued on next page...
18 | The Austin Tri
(Continued from pg 16)
4. After the swim, you will enter the transition at one end and leave at the other. When you return you reverse things. That is, the bike starts and finishes at the same side of the transition area, and the run goes out where the swim came in. 5. It's also a good idea to do a walk or warm-up run of the start of the run course and finish. That way you won't get lost starting the run and you'll have some good landmarks as you near the finish line. It's always nice to know when you are nearing the finish line, so if you have some visual cues you'll be more comfortable. 6. The best advice for any new triathlete is to get to the swim start early and scope out the swim course. Take some time to figure out how you are going to sight the buoys and maybe pick out some land marks along the way to measure distance. The swim is often the most daunting part of a triathlon and open water swimming is different than pool swimming. When you can't see the bottom and there are no lane ropes people often freak out a bit and then they have trouble swimming. Factor in any trouble navigating and you've got a long swim on your hands. Take some time to get comfortable in the water and with the fact that you can't see as well. Practice sighting the buoys so that you won't get lost. The more time you spend getting comfortable, the less time you'll spend panicking. If you are a weak swimmer or a beginner, please stay to the back of the pack. This not only keeps you from getting clobbered, but it also helps those stronger swimmers get out of your way faster. One more point about the swim. You may see people at the race with wetsuits. You don't need to have a wetsuit to race, so don't worry if you don’t have one. We will take the water temperature on race morning and let you know if wetsuits are legal. Check the USAT rule in this guide for more info.
