Columbia Tri - road bike or TT bike?
POSTED: 5/13/13 9:10 AM

I just did Monticelloman 70.3 on my P3 and was fine with riding those hills on the tri bike.

I'm racing the Columbia Oly for the first time this weekend, and haven't ridden the course. Thoughts on whether I should use my road or tri bike?

Thanks,
Deb

The bike course is rolling and comparable to Monticelloman (I did the half as well). The worst hill on the Columbia course is comparable to the one after the sharp descent out of T1 at Monti.

So tri bike should be no problems.

Some things to watch out for:
- two metal plates on the highway coming out of T1.
- lots of debris on the shoulder of the same highway.
- two traffic circles to watch out for.

Good luck!
