Like the title says… This was my list from last weekends race
Method…. I use some ikea tubs and set them up a few days before. If travelling by car, they get lids on and go with me. If travelling by plane, they get emptied and stuffed in my bags
Rule: Nothing in the boxes must be untested, but I keep race gear separate from training gear over the last few days.
White bag (before and after)
Caps – race and personal
Goggles – 2 pairs
waterbottle (drink some before swim)
Cliff block or gel (one before swim)
Flip flops (for the walk from Transition)
Garmin on my wrist! – I keep mine under the neo during the race.
Timing Chip on left leg, facing out, under neo and rock solid.
Depending on the race conditions – waterproof sunscreen
Blue bike Bag
Start number belt
Sunglasses or visor
Under helmet sweatband or bandana
4 salt tabs in a plastic bag – I only use them on hot races
Bike prep bag (normally I use the free rucksack when T1 opens in the morning)
Elastics (to attach shoes to bike – I don’t do a flying mount just step in to them on the bike – much less faff in T1)
Bike bottles (one gel bottle on frame, one behind the saddle, one between the bars)
Cliff bars x 2 – cut in half in frame box.
Small paper with height profile, mechanics & aid stations – I write this on my arm as well.
