CAN I RIDE MY BIKE IN TRANSITION?
No. For safety reasons it is forbidden to ride your bike in transition. You must push your bike (while wearing your helmet securely fastened) through transition towards the exit. There is a specific exiting location and you will not be permitted to leave the zone anywhere else. A few metres outside the exit area there is a MOUNT line after which you are allowed to get on your bike and begin riding. If you mount before that line, you will be given a time penalty. Upon completion of the bike course you must enter transition from a specific entrance. You will be directed there by a race official. A few metres from that entrance there will be a DISMOUNT line. You must get off of your bike before that line. Failure to do so will end in a time penalty. Once you dismount, you must push your bike to your designated spot in the transition zone.
