Questions about Drafting
I'm currently prepping for my first Tri later in the year, (Leeds), and I've been reading up on all the rules because I don't want to mess up the transitions, (or potentially ruin a person's race through my own stupidity).
Transitions seem easy enough to understand, I'm sure I'll be slower than most; however, I can't seem to wrap my head around the "no drafting" rule.
I've read the British Triathlon rules on drafting, but can't visualise how you're supposed to not draft in a race with thousands of competitors, surely a group will form that will be close enough to each other to fall foul of the rules?
I don't think I'll have any issues staying out of groups, it'll be lonely at the back!
Thanks for the info, I was worried I'd ruin someone's race by getting in the way or ruin my own race by getting a penalty.
Now I only have a dozen or so other things to worry about!
