Rebel Sport Transition Tips

The most unfamiliar part of TRYathlon is the transition between legs. This is where you need to go from swim to bike and bike to run.

It is important to practice the transition beforehand to get your body used to doing a different activity straight away as it uses different muscles and you’ll need to practice getting changed into the right clothing for the next leg.

Practicing the transitions will improve the chances that it will all go smoothly on the day.

For the swim to bike you could practice this at the swimming pool or beach, or you could even try this at home, by running around under the sprinkler, drying yourself and then then putting your biking clothes on.

For the bike to run you could try biking for a few minutes and then go straight to running off the bike. Sometime when you hop off your bike and start running your legs can feel a bit like jelly!

You should get used to drying yourself, putting your shoes and helmet on and getting on and off your bike. Remember to practice in fully closed shoes so you get used to putting them on in Transition on the event day.

Make sure you practice how you are going to celebrate as you cross the finish line too!
