Preview the course

I typically do this before a road triathlon but discovered it’s even more important for an off-road race, where taking the right line down a steep descent or properly rounding a corner with soft sand can make the difference between staying upright or serious injury. I pre-rode the bike course with Ironman pro Kate Major, and the one section we missed was, sure enough, the place where I went over the handlebars and face planted on race day. Lesson learned.
