Here’s the updated bike course of the K-Swiss SuBIT 2012 presented by Century Tuna. Click the race map to download the image. Also, don’t forget to check out the prizes that await all the winners! Heaviest finisher FTW!!!
A debate has been going on at the SWIMBIKERUN.ph Community Forum as to whether or not, a road bike will be more beneficial than a road bike in SuBIT. Now with the IDESS loop gone, it is now safe to say that advantage goes bike to the tri bike. IT’S HAMMER TIME.
SWIMBIKERUN.ph is a proud media partner of the K-Swiss SuBIT 2012 presented by Century Tuna.
Something to consider :
- With the heat, consider using a regular helmet :). As what teamTBB coach Brett Sutton always says, “you may end up going a minute faster on the bike (because of an aero helmet), but lose more on the run because you cooked your head”
