There was a slight wind. Yes there were flat parts but the hills were a challenge (for me) may be not others. Where i lost them was when we took our first right on Oakhill.
Remember we had a rolling vehicle start .... something I have never experienced and the pace by the vehicle was very fast. Which meant everyone was trying to stay on the vehicle. Because of the first left turn and then a sharp right near hairpin turn and and soft right turn again it was like being slinky. I think I was not prepared for that and I let this get to me pyschologically.
Like I said .... I was humbled and I learned a lot.
Where the hilss were nasty was on Tritt Road and Liberty School Road.
That's a flat/rolling route, with some long false flats. Nice fast stretch on the way back if your prevailing wind is from the West...
Was it windy? I can't remember - and where did you lose touch?

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.

Thanks for this post it was fun to see the route on Google Earth 3D.

For those of you that may be interested on what the race map and elevation was for the race I did on July 5th. Here is the link to it:
Hopefully it will work.
Also, remeber the race was shorten due to road construction. So the back half had to be removed. Instead of turning left on 37th street we turned left on Eureka Road. This was a 2 lap race and was approx. 35.5 miles?
Let me know what you think about the course?
