Do you change clothes in a triathlon?
Clothing for a Triathlon You can opt to change into clothes specific to each leg of the race —or not. Some triathletes choose to do the whole race in a swimsuit for quicker transitions. Other swimmers simply pull on a pair of shorts before jumping on their bike.
What should I wear for my first triathlon?
Your First Triathlon Your first race is all about comfort and experimenting with what works for you. Typically, a first-time triathlete will wear a swimsuit for the swim with a sports bra or supportive swimsuit top underneath, and then pull cycling shorts on during T1 (first transition).
Does a wetsuit go over your clothes?
The key is to remember that everything under your wetsuit will get very very wet — this might go without saying, but the wetsuit will not actually keep any of your clothing from making contact with water.
Do you wear anything under a triathlon suit?
The answer is no. You should not wear underwear (except a sports bra) under your trisuit in a race. Additionally, your underwear could retain water and counteract the quick drying properties of your suit.
How tight should a tri wetsuit be?
Subject: RE: How tight should a wetsuit be? The triathlon wetsuit should feel firm when you put it on, yet should be comofrtable and not restricting movement or breathing. There should be no air pockets, and it should create suction when pulled away from a body.
Do triathletes Pee on the bike?

What is the hardest part of the triathlon?
The hardest part of triathlon is the constant mental game your mind is playing with you. It starts right when you hear the word triathlon for the first time and never stops. Most people fear open water swimming and see that as a barrier to even start triathlon.
Do you wear socks in a triathlon?
Most pro triathletes don’t wear socks for sprint and Olympic distance events and are wearing some for longer events. However, over a full Ironman distance, it is rather insignificant. The comfort of socks over such a big distance is, for most people, well worth those couple of seconds.
Can you wear a tri suit for the swim?
A “tri suit” is one choice of garment you can wear through the entire race. This helps make the suit more comfortable for swimming. After the swim, the thin pad dries out quickly and doesn’t feel like a big, wet diaper on the bike ride.
Can you wear a life jacket during a triathlon?
Consider Safety Equipment. In addition to providing comfort and speed, a good triathlon wetsuit provides buoyancy that can serve as almost a life jacket if you encounter a problem. In addition to a wetsuit, other items can also help provide some added safety.
What should I wear if I don’t have a wetsuit?
A rash guard is also a good option for those who don’t have the funds for a wetsuit top and are surfing in warmer water. These will keep you both protected from the sun and from a rash from your surfboard, although they will not do much to keep you warm.
