Hiya, welcome to the forum.A 'good' time depends on what you class as good? Have a look at last years results that should give you an idea of what front and mid packers are doing. Your time is going to depend on how good you are at each discipline, pacing, transitions etc. Id say for a first race concentrate on learning the ropes and enjoying it.Have a read of this, hopefully youll find it useful
The Unofficial PSOF Guide to Sprint Triathlons
Just enjoy your first one, read the guide above, and then think about improving in your next one.
Good luck with the training between now and July.
I'll agree with everyone, enjoy the ride, look at the times the next time...you'll have a PB to beat then
you will need a bike, and it would be good to have road tyres on it rather than knobblies
but enjoy, plenty of time for bike poncery to take over
I did my 1st sprint tri last weekend & not really bothered about times just to get round. Next time I hope will be different, lessons learned, its not a scary as you think & get out on the bike & do the hills & more brick sessions. I read the pirates guide for setting up & racking & also checked some of the rules, so was pretty miffed to find coming in to T2 that someone had moved my box & racked their bike in my place.
Could have done with you at Chirk last week FB....
Got to my bike in T1, Helmet on the floor, number belt wrapped round the rack.
Got back to T2 and out of the 2 gels left propped up in my running shoes,, one had gone and the other had been stood on so was useless
