Paris Triathlon

Only five days out from the premier race of the French triathlon season – the Olympic distance Paris Triathlon, my beloved Cervelo P2 time trial bike was still considered illegal equipment in the draft legal race. Not to mention that faulty spokes on my Easton Circuit wheels meant that I had no wheels to race on either, as yet another spoke randomly broke two weeks earlier, this time on my front wheel.  With two friends from Australia also arriving in days to compete in the race with me, I was cutting it fine to get to the start line.
