Frequently Asked Questions for all Age Group participants at the 2012 ITU World Triathlon San Diego.
Q: Can I ride a Tri Bike or Time Trial Bike?
A: Yes. All bicycles (road, triathlon, mountain, cross, etc.) are legal to use in any USAT sanctioned event, including the WTS San Diego event. USA Triathlon Competitive Rules apply to all age group races. Only the elite race has specific bike requirements.
Q: Do I have to wear a bike helmet? If so, does it have to be a specific type?
A: Yes. All participants must wear a helmet during the race that is undamaged and unaltered. The helmet must meet or exceed the safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). If a participant’s helmet does not meet CPSC approval they will NOT be allowed to race. Download the CPSC guidelines here.
