Quick tips for a better bike leg by Guilherme Campos

You’ve made it out of the water, cleared T1 and now you’re about to start the bike portion of your race. Remember you will be coming from quite a few minutes in the horizontal position and at this point your body is still “changing” to a vertical orientation again.
