7:00am – Transition Opens – check in gear. Bike racks will be first come, first serve. Bikes should be racked in alternating directions, preferably by the seat. If you prefer you do not have to use the bike racks and can put your bike up by the kickstand/lay it on the ground in the non-bike rack area of transition, look for the yellow lines on the ground in transition. Parents will be allowed in transition before the race begins, but only athletes are allowed in during the race to keep it less congested. Athletes will be body marked with their race number when they rack their bike. 


7:45am – Transition Closes – you will NOT be allowed back in. Athletes line up on the pool deck with their age group. The 6–9-year-old Youth Junior Age division will start first followed by the 10–13-year-old Senior Age division.
