Should I wear a sports bra under my tri 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.
What should a woman wear for a triathlon?
Some women can get away with a tight triathlon suit, while others are more comfortable in a sporty swimsuit top or a moisture-wicking sports bra that will not get saturated during the swim. Make sure all your attire, including your sports bra, is ‘tried and true’ come race day.

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 I wear a sports bra under my swimsuit?
Never wear a regular bra under your swimsuit – it will ruin it. If you must wear a bra under the suit, make sure to wear one specifically designed for it. There isn’t room: Bathing suits and bikinis are form-fitting, and designed to be worn tight against your skin. A bra will cause bulge and odd-looking bumps.
Do triathletes Pee on the bike?
On to the matter at hand – yes, some triathletes do, in fact, pee on their bikes. If it’s not obvious, triathletes pee while riding their bike so they don’t have to stop – saving precious time for competitive races.
Do you change clothes in a triathlon?

What should you eat before a triathlon?

Meal choices may include breakfast cereals, porridge, toast or pancakes if breakfast, or wraps, sandwiches, pasta or bread rolls if a late evening race.
Should you wear socks in a triathlon?

What is the hardest part of the triathlon?

Do you have to wear a swim cap in a triathlon?
