Ace your race! Learn the secrets and basics for your first race, or build a triathlon vocabulary for your season. Come to Boulder City pool for a morning of swimming, biking, and learning the ropes of tri-sport.
On April 6th Robert Picardo, one of the area’s first triathletes and the swim safety coordinator for the Las Vegas triathlon club, will host a morning clinic on all things triathlon.
We start at 7:30 am at Boulder City pool for open water training. Starting with a short stroke assessment, we move on to swimming with others, drafting, buoy turns, sighting, and strategy. Learn to relax in open water and how to maximize your swim with the least amount of effort.
At 9 am we move on to the bike and T1 and T2. Topics include swim to run, bike efficiency, shifting, descending, feeding, and bike to run transition.
A must-have tutorial for your first race or season, this class will show you how to maximize and enjoy your time in the sport. Don’t make your first triathlons a blur, make them a statement!
