Only 1 CO2 cartridge?
I watched the 2008 Ironman yesterday on TV. The women's winner flatted out on the course and had only 1 CO2 cartridge. She screwed up rushing and lost all the CO2. After standing for 5 minutes on the roadside, someone stopped to help.
But why wouldn't she have more than 1 or a mini-pump as backup? This isn't like the Tour where there's constant support vehicles.
