Professional triathletes practice their transitions as though it was a 4th sport. They work at racing through transitions in order to gain time on the competition and avoid injury, especially when dismounting their bikes in tight quarters. Precious seconds gained in the transition area can translate into victory in an Olympic or Sprint Distance Triathlon.

Here are the pros coming into T-2 at the DC Dextro ITU Race. This professional triathlon in the heart of the Nation’s Capitol featured Olympians and World Champions racing just a few feet in front of spectators !
