Someone smart, ITU savvy, please dont ST me here. I'm in the middle of watching replay now. At the start of the bike, I noticed all the lead pack girls had two bottles on their bikes. Am I seeing this right? If so, why two bottles. Never noticed this before.
That much hydration in one hour? Or is there a difference in the product inside each so they can decouple hydration rate from nutrition rate? Last question: Is there an aero/weight penalty from two bottles vs. one that must be balanced, or is this not so important in the drafting format due to time not pulling?
A sincere thank you to the attendees, it was really fun. I just safely tucked away all the gear. Next year's setup will be a breeze. @M_Ware , my man cave is now far more appropriately equipped. I love this!
Hey @A_drizzle , which gravel kings? I have the SK with the small square knobbies. 43mm on wide rims. Super comfy in tubless setup. I think they are surprisingly fast in dry (yes they pickup stones), but with a little moisture on the dirt they seem to pack up and ride like I'm on velcro tires. A huge noticeable effort change. I also think all my other tires are far more confidence inspiring when leaning over in fast turns on the loose. Did you notice these things? Any experience 1st or 2nd hand with the specialized trigger pro 2bliss?
