The atmosphere at tri's is great. It's a lot more like the big running races, in the sense that there are a tiny number of people there to actually win the race, and the rest are there to do the best they can, have some fun, or maybe beat last year's time. Much more inclusive and supportive than a road bike race, for instance.

I've never heard a triathlete bash roadies--even when I'm incognito in my tri suit and aero helmet.
