When and When Not to Pack a Flat Kit

David races for Gear West, the premier specialty sports store in the Midwest.

Last time, we talked about wetsuits and their advantages. This week, it;s flat kits. Every triathlete has struggled with the decision on whether or not to pack one.

David Thompson, a highly respected pro triathlete with over 200 races and 90 wins under his belt, checks in this week with Get the Edge Triathlon Tip #8, which you can use to have a fantastic bike at the Pigman Sprint and the Pigman Long Course:

"Do you need a flat kit? If you goal is to finish the race or have some place to be after the race, the answer is yes. If you’re trying to set a personal best or win a competitive age, the answer is no."

Remember, the Pigman Long Course features a new course. Check it out now then register today!.
