Nice, France Update and Back to Normal Schedule

Hello Team,

Update from Nice, France!

I hope you are all doing well when you receive this email. Now that we all survived the scare of Dorian. It is time to get back to our normal schedule. However, a quick update on what is happening in Nice, France.

Almost everyone has arrived in Nice, France. Donnie comes today! We drove the bike course on Tuesday, and the guys are up for a challenge. The bike is exceptionally hilly and technical. Hence it is the World Championship for 70.3. I am very confident in all of my athletes as they have worked hard, done their training, and ready to be strategic on their race.

Getting out of the water.
Mediterranean Sea

The swim – The mediterranean sea is gorgeous, warm, and extremely salty. Therfore, i doubt it will be wetsuit legal and with the salt content of the sea… you will be floating like a buoy.

The bike – On a course like this, you have to focus on the big picture, the first 25 miles you are climbing non-stop. However, when you get to the top, you have a long descent with switch-backs, bad roads, technical turns, and sketchy descents. Many people brought their road bikes instead of their Tri Bikes to do this course. Many people will go hard on the bike and dwindle on the run. Therefore, save your legs for the run. They have to be smart.

Flat Run Course

The run – Flat and hot! However, the humidity is very low. If they are smart on the bike, they will have a successful run.

The wine in France is amazing – Super inexpensive! Lets not talk about the bread!
