Drafting: Drafting is illegal. We ask your help in doing the best we can to help enforce the “NO DRAFTING” rules of USA Triathlon. You, the athlete, are the simplest and best way to keep the bike course safe and draft free. We will have USA Triathlon Officials out on the bike course, but you personally need to help the sport and yourself by simply backing out of packs, slowing down or verbally mentioning to other athletes not to draft.
