Race Gear Guide - Essentials

You donít have to have a tri top and shorts to do your first triathlon, but itís going to be a lot more comfortable than board shorts and a T-shirt. They are in essentials because they will make your first triathlon a lot more enjoyable. They will keep you drier, cooler, and more comfortable, and the shorts will provide extra padding for the bike leg. Youíll want to remember the small things Ė from sunscreen to BodyGlide, which will keep you from experiencing uncomfortable chafing. Finally, from gels to drink mix, donít forget the nutrition that will help get you through the day. You wonít forget the big things, like your bike, but some of these little things can bring your race to an unexpected end.
