drying wetsuit

I am brand new at triathlon. My very first race is chicago accenture sprint sunday august 26...anyways I purchased my wetsuit two weeks ago and swam twice in the lake. I want to care for it properly so I rinse it out in a sink inside out then drape it over my bike. but two big puddles start to form... constantly papertoweling the mess! I am thinking to drill a hook in my shower ceiling so I can hang it to dry? How do you dry yours?

I hang mine up inside out in the shower using like 5 hangers (to spread out the weight so the hangers don't dig into the neoprene). A broomstick over the top of the shower makes for a nice place to hang stuff.

Or if you can't do that, hang it in a doorway and throw a towel under it (fold the towel over afew times so it's not spread out too far and is thick enough to prevent water from soaking through to the floor).

I have a big fat scuba gear hanger that works nicely. All the drips go down the drain.
