Voici l’homme aux deux montres (ce qui prouve bien ma théorie: pas un seul fabriquant n’a réussi à développer le modèle parfait).
Il a tout pour gagner dès cette année. Supérieur en vélo et en natation à Crowie. Il pourrait être tenté de suivre les ubberbikers, ceux qui auront besoins de se montrer comme Faris Al-Juan… après on verra! S’il gère bien ses deux montres…
Quelques passages de son blog… J’adorre!
I learned last year that it is imperative for me to lose as little speed as possible going through the aid stations. I would rather be able to get as much in me as possible without losing speed so I will grab one cup with my right hand, make a swift pass to the left hand and drink it while my right hand grabs another. Then I will be able to grab 2-3 cups every time when you go through fast as I do.
We had arranged an aid station on our 1,4 km lap (a little less than a mile) where we had first energy drink, then ice and then cold water handed out to pour on ourselves. It was a good exercise in receiving and effectuating fluids quickly as well as feeling the cooling effect from ice and water and putting the ice in the cap and in the ice pockets on the race suit. It was nice to test it and as it was warm and the aid stations are located at every mile in Hawaii, it was very specific training towards a quick entrance and fast exit at the aid stations in Kona.
