Over-packing for race day

It takes enough crap just to swim, bike, run and transition; don’t bog yourself down with unnecessary extras. Leave your standard cycling stuff at home and use your aero and race gear to warm up and to ride the day before if you’re traveling to a race. Bring the necessities such as electrical tape, a multi-tool, something to sip on before the race, maybe a little food and a warm set of clothing. Leave the extras at home.
