WTS Races

I was watching one of those WTS Oly races late night on the Olympic channel the other night. (I have to admit that as much as I enjoy participating in triathlons, watching them on TV is rather boring.) It was the Bermuda race. A couple of observations: 1) The swim was a two-lap thing where the athletes had to climb out of the water...up a staircase, run along a stone wall for about 50m, and then dive back into the water for the second lap. That seems a bit odd. I'd prefer simply a bouy to go around and continue swimming versus exiting/reentering the water. And 2) Many of the bikes didn't have aero bars. Those that did, seemed like they were just small clip-ons.
