Question 13: Do I need a day license abroad?

Answer: Most national federations will recognise your British Triathlon membership as an international race licence and will not require you to take out a race licence in that country. However, in some countries such as the USA , event organisers may require you to take out their insurance cover due to the level of payments associated with successful claims.

You use your BTA license but can buy a license upon registration. You also geta little sticker for your bike when taking it to TX for insurance on the roads.

Joe whats TX?

transition - bike racking area. Old school set-up, no bags, everything by your bike.

BigBob did you have to add a monitor to you turbo, or does it come with one? Doesnt say on the website I looked it up on?

Joe
Do they not give you bags (run bag + bike bag etc) for your stuff at IM Switz then?

Do you lay it all out like in smaller races?

Fell off after a week in this summers heat!

IMCH transition is just like a standard tri - all your kit next to the bike so no fannying with bags..............

Thanks FB, that's 1 less thing to worry about then!

You would have to add a monitor. I use my bike computer along with a HRM so don't have a need for one.

I'm also looking for insurance, USA Triathlon doesn't cover you the same as BTA, anyone have any ideas??

Soz BigBog, know youre asking about USA (I will ask swim coach tonight as he has recently completed RAAM so should know), but just had this info from BTA

At the moment it is £10 to run to the 31st March when our renewals are due. At this point the full year membership for 2007 has not been set but will be around £40 for a club member and £50 for a non-club member. You can join now until the 31st of March or renewals for next year will be up and running in late January/early February

What do you need the car sticker for anyway?? (In case you knock over a cyclist, if theyre a BTA member they cant sue you??? Not as if I plan to do this of course..........lol)

Thanks BigBob I use a Garmin 305 at the moment for running, but havent upgraded it to use on bike outdoors ie for the cadence, does anyone use the bike bits and is it worth getting? Ive been told the Cateye (?sp) is a worthwhile buy for turbo??
21/11/2006 at 16:39
Oooo I might know your coach...taught me my BTA level 1 coaching qualification.
Top bloke!

thanks for all the advice, its really great having an unlimited source of tried and tested, reliable information from everyone.

I have a Cateye Astrale 8, which seems to be pretty standard kit amongst forumites, easy to use, measures Cadence etc. Just remember to attach the wheel magnet to the rear wheel, not the front :-)

21/11/2006 at 16:46
