TriRig has already showcased two large galleries from the Lonestar 70.3 in Galveston, Texas. But as usual, some of the most interesting stories about gear are hidden in the fine details. So I went back into our image files and dug up some of the small bits and pieces that I thought were particularly noteworthy and blew them up for you to see firsthand.
Lance's front end has a single-bend extension with 30-degrees of rise, a couple gels taped to the bars, and a flask for concentrated liquid nutrition. No BTA bottle though. Personally, we recommend all athletes use a BTA bottle - they're simple, convenient, and a great way to remind you to hydrate. Funny enough, Lance complained that his hydration was insufficient at the Lonestar 70.3 - maybe he needs to get a BTA bottle going!
