Race Day Update #2

And we're off!

Right now RC is about 10 miles into the bike after a solid swim.  He came in with an official split of 1:21:38, which is right around where he placed in 2010 (1:20:27).  Looking at the pros times, it looks like the swim was a little slow this year.  I think this was a good strategy to stay conservative and save energy for the bike and run.

RC is through the first two bike splits (6.4mi) averaging around 17mph.  There are a few climbs out of town so this pace is to be expected.  My guess is that he takes the first 20 miles to settle into a rhythm before he unleashes those patented Christofferson cycling skills.

Let's beam him some energy out there!
