  • First tri of the year this weekend and they are threatening non-wetsuit swim. I have a swimskin (blueseventy pointzero3) from 2011 when I was fast(er).

    Are swimskins legal in tri these days? The pros at kona look like they are wearing something equivalent but I have a vague recollection they got banned?

  • They are legal in European IM races but not in the US ones.

    All the IM I’ve taken part in have been in cold locations so I’ve never seen anyone try to enforce the rules.

  • I’ve seen them used at IMChina. But that was some time ago, and China.

  • yep, they are legal, my mates who did IM austria last year have dusted theirs off!

    presume its the cotswold classic?

  • Super, thanks all...

    @Sainsburys_Ed yup, cotswold classic. Anyone else doing it?

  • good luck, have to commend the organisers working so hard to get it running...

  • yeah they've clearly put an enormous effort in!

  • I have a question...around transitions
    Are there any recommended resources for helping to train for these?
