Hi,

Im new to this site and will try my first sprint triathlon in Os next week. I have a question about the swim - do I really need a wetsuit? I have a surfing wetsuit which Im not so fond of swimming in and its difficult to get off and I dont want to buy a tri wetsuit just yet as I want to see if I enjoy this one first. Will it really be that cold?

Also, in there anywhere in Bergen I can buy a tri shorts?

If anyone can help Id be very appreciative.

thanks,
Emmet

Last year 2 out of 90 were without wet suits. It is cold, but you will survive. Still, if you have a normal wet suit i would recommend you to use it. If it is difficult to get off, you may want to use some lubricants or body glide on arms and legs. Google: triathlon wet suit lubricant

Er det noen som har et ledig startnummer til Mosjonistklassen på Os? Jeg var desverre litt treg med å melde meg på.
Kan nås på mob: 92 30 88 78 Carsten

Hi Emmet,
I disagree with the reply above. The water is likely to be 20 degC on sunday and swimming without wetsuit will be fine. I dont recommend swimming in a non triathlon wetsuit as it will definetely be slower and more uncomfy unless the water is too cold.

Last year it was possible to register at race day. (bring cash).
But I'm not in the crew, so someone else need to answer properly

They've limited it to 100 participants in mosjon due to rock storage reduces t1 space. Hence its sold out as i understand.

Entry within ten data according to tri series rules of ntf. You could beg for å btc quota outside series on same start for crew i guess, but i'm not involved :)

Carsten and Steve,

Thanks for the replies. After having a look around for wetsuits in Bergen (very very expensive in Boa) I eventually took the plunge (before I saw your post Steve) and bought an Orca S4 on wiggle and some body glide like Carsten suggested. Ive taken it for a couple of test swims and Im glad I got it...so much buoyancy!! Im looking forward to Sunday and giving triathlon a go even though the prospect of another 99 people thrashing about in the water at the same time is slightly offputting.

Var for sent ute med påmelding til Os triathlon på nettet og har forstått det slik at det ikke går å melde seg på på søndag, så er interresert i startnummer til mosjonsklassen om noen skulle ha ett til overs :) mob 907 67 332, Frode.

Jeg kan ikke være med. Plassen min kan altså sikkert overtas av noen
