Racers exit out of the water, enter the transition area, and change from their swim gear and into their cycling gear. Competition and pressure for faster times have led to the development of specialized triathlon clothing that is adequate for both swimming and cycling, allowing many racers to have a transition that consists of only removing their wetsuit, cap, and goggles and pulling on a helmet and cycling shoes.
In some cases, racers leave their cycling shoes attached to their bicycle pedals and slip their feet into them while riding.
The cycling stage proceeds around a marked course, typically on public roads. In many cases, especially smaller triathlons, roads are not closed to automobiles; however, traffic coordinators are often present to help control traffic.
Typically, the cycling stage finishes back at the same transition area. Racers enter the transition area, rack their bicycles, and quickly change into running shoes before heading out for the final stage.
The running stage usually ends at a separate finish line near the transition area. In most races, " aid stations " located on the bike and run courses provide water and energy drinks to the athletes as they pass by.
Aid stations at longer events may often provide various types of food as well, including such items as energy bars , energy gels , fruit, cookies, soup, and ice.
Once the triathletes have completed the event, there is typically another aid station for them to get water, fruit, and other post-race refreshments.
Occasionally, at the end of larger or longer events, the provided amenities and post-race celebrations may be more elaborate.
While specific rules for triathlon can vary depending on the governing body e. Traditionally, triathlon is an individual sport and each athlete is competing against the course and the clock for the best time.
As such, athletes are not allowed to receive assistance from anyone else outside the race, with the exception of race-sanctioned aid volunteers who distribute food and water on the course.
Some races also post transition times separately. Other rules of triathlon vary from race to race and generally involve descriptions of allowable equipment for example, wetsuits are allowed in USAT events in the swimming stage of some races when the water temperature is below Failure to comply with this rule will result in disqualification.
Other than pushing a bicycle, any propulsive action brought on by use of the hands is prohibited. Competitors may not begin riding their bicycle out of transition until they are over a clearly marked line.
Mounting the bike prior to this may incur a penalty example: Other time penalties can be incurred during the race for, among other things, drafting on the bike in a non-drafting race, improper passing, littering on course, and unsportsmanlike conduct.
Participants in triathlon often use the sport to improve or maintain their physical fitness. Triathletes spend many hours training for competitions, like other endurance event participants.
The cross-training effect that athletes achieve from training for one sport by doing a second activity applies to triathlon training.
Triathletes will often use their legs less vigorously and more carefully than other swimmers, conserving their leg muscles for the cycle and run to follow.
Many triathletes use altered swim strokes to compensate for turbulent, aerated water and to conserve energy for a long swim. In addition, the majority of triathlons involve open-water outdoor swim stages, rather than pools with lane markers.
As a result, triathletes in the swim stage must jockey for position, and can gain some advantage by drafting , following a competitor closely to swim in their slipstream.
Also, open-water swims necessitate "sighting": A modified stroke allows the triathlete to lift the head above water to sight without interrupting the swim or wasting energy.
Because open water swim areas are often cold and because wearing a wetsuit provides a competitive advantage, specialized triathlon wetsuits have been developed in a variety of styles to match the conditions of the water.
For example, wetsuits that are sleeveless and cut above the knee are designed for warmer waters, while still providing buoyancy.
Some triathlon sanctioning bodies have placed limits on the thickness of the wetsuit material. Triathlon cycling can differ from most professional bicycle racing depending on whether drafting is allowed during competition.
In some competitions, like those governed by USA Triathlon and the World Triathlon Corporation, drafting is not allowed,  and thus the cycling portion more closely resembles individual time trial racing.
In other races, such as those in World Cup and Championship racing, drafting and the formation of pelotons are legal. Triathlon bicycles are generally optimized for aerodynamics, having special handlebars called aero-bars or tri-bars , aerodynamic wheels , and other components.
Triathlon bikes use a specialized geometry, including a steep seat-tube angle both to improve aerodynamics and to spare muscle groups needed for running see also triathlon equipment.
At the end of the bike segment, triathletes also often cycle with a higher cadence revolutions per minute , which serves in part to keep the muscles loose and flexible for running.
The primary distinguishing feature of running in a triathlon is that it occurs after the athlete has already been exercising in two other disciplines for an extended period of time, so many muscles are already tired.
The effect of switching from cycling to running can be profound; first-time triathletes are often astonished at their muscle weakness , which may be caused by lactate accumulation and the bizarre, sometimes painful sensation in their thighs a few hundred yards into the run, and discover that they run at a much slower pace than they are accustomed to in training.
Triathletes train for this phenomenon through transition workouts known as "bricks": The change over from sport to sport takes place in a designated transition area.
The transition provides a staging area where bicycles, running shoes, hydration and other gear is set up ready to be used during the course of the event.
The first transition, known as T1 , is between the swim-to-bike segments of the race. The second transition, T2 , is between the bike-to-run segments.
Most events have one common transition area for both T1 and T2, while some point to point events have two separate transition areas.
The time spent in transition is a timed segment and contributes towards the overall finishing time of the event. Thousands of individual triathlons are held around the world each year.
A few of these races are well known because they have a long history or because they have particularly grueling courses and race conditions.
A few are listed here. Paratriathlon is a variant of the triathlon for athletes with physical disabilities.
Athletes compete in six categories according to the nature of their physical impairments. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about a type of three-sport athletic competition.
