    Hyvee

    Just watched it. Awesome womens race. Here's a question; Why did every bike have drops instead of bullhorns? I didn't see one athlete with a tri specific set up. Is it becauseit was draft legal?

    I'd bet that was a part of it, better handling. It was also a hilly course.

    Yes. A few of the athletes have mini aerobars but it seems like most just have a drop bar setup.

    Nice to see a triathlon with such a large first prize.
