Simo - that's good progress, keep going!
5:12 for me. All good except T1 where I couldn't get my wetsuit over the timing chip so that took longer than it should've. I usually take long enough to have a cream tea in transition so that was no great surprise. Bike split average speed was 21.4mph which, I think, is the fastest I've gone so well pleased with that.
As I type this I'm still at the (now quite empty) campsite. Glorious sunshine and barely a cloud in the sky. Why wasn't it like this 12 hours ago?!
And your last bit about expensive Tri bikes and using the bars. Couldn't agree more - I was saying exactly the same thing to Mrs Cheggers earlier. I use mine whenever I can and I reckon being on the bars is worth an extra 2 or 3 mph.
