Hey, y'all prepare yourself
For the Rubberband man
You never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the Rubberband starts to jam
It was not that long ago that I was touting the rubber band method in creating a faster transition from the swim to the bike. Here's that story.
Earlier this spring, I had a horrible T1 transition because of the rubber band method. Much because Speedplay pedals just are not made for this type of transition. Here is that story.
|That pedal is about the size of a 50-cent piece|
Now direct from London Hyde Park, which will be the 2012 Summer Games Olympic triathlon venue, is a video that captures the women's T1 at the World Championship Series race in Hyde Park earlier this year. If I ever again get the itch to try the rubber band method, all I will do is watch this video. What is absolutely unforgivable is that these are the pros and it appears many of them had never practiced this method before. It's a scene straight out Keystone Kops!
