Bike Check-In and Out

Bike check-in for the Olympic-Distance National Championships will be from 10 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 7. Sprint National Championships athletes will check in bikes Saturday, Aug. 8 from 2:50 - 4:45 p.m. These times are mandatory for all athletes.

Transition will reopen at 4:55 a.m. race morning and close at 6:55 a.m. for all athletes on both days. Olympic-distance athletes will be able to check bikes out on Saturday at approximately 11:45 a.m. Sprint National Championships athletes can check out bikes on Sunday at approximately 10:35 a.m. There is no bike check-in on race morning.

Note: No bags will be allowed in transition. The security of bags and personal items is the responsibility of the athletes, not USA Triathlon. There will be a secure bag-check tent, so please check your bag at the tent or leave it in your car or hotel. Athletes must have their wristband on to check-in and check-out your bike.

Bike Check-In Procedure for Athletes Doing Both Races

Bike check-out on Saturday, Aug. 8 is mandatory for all Olympic-distance athletes at 12:00 p.m. (approx.). For athletes also competing in Sprint distance on Sunday, Aug. 9, we have made the process easier for you. In transition, there will be a row of racks with no numbers. When bike check-out starts at approximately 12:00 p.m., athletes have one of two options:

  1. Remove your bike and gear from your Olympic-distance rack position and re-rack, leaving only your bike. Your gear must go with you. Once this is complete, you may choose to do one of the following: 
    • A.) Return on Saturday when sprint distance check-in takes place from 2:50 - 4:45 p.m. and re-rack your bike in the rack position that has your sprint-distance number OR
    • B.) Arrive on Sunday morning when transition is open to re-rack your bike in the rack position that has your sprint-distance number
  2. Remove your bike and gear from your Olympic-distance rack position and exit transition. You may then re-enter transition during sprint distance check in taking place from 4-6:30 p.m. and re-rack your bike in the rack position that has your sprint-distance number.

Please keep in mind the following notes if you are racing both Olympic-distance and Sprint races:

  • You will have a different race number for each race. You must change out your Olympic-distance number for your sprint distance number on your helmet, bike, bib, wristband, and tattoos.
  • So that race staff may identify your bike if needed, please ensure your bike still has a number on it if you place it on the racks without numbers (can be either Olympic or Sprint number)
  • All numbers are unique to each athlete; there are no duplicates.
  • The racks without numbers are located inside of transition area and will remain secured as with the rest of transition area.
  • Additionally, please ensure you wear the appropriate swim cap for the appropriate day of racing.

Bike Course - No Riding Outside of Racing

For your safety and the safety of drivers, please do not ride your bike on the course outside of designated racing times. The road will not be closed before race day and will only be closed during permitted race times. The road will be completely closed to vehicular traffic during racing. People found riding outside of designated times may be ticketed by the police.

USA Triathlon Sportsmanship Creed

As competitive athletes and members of the triathlon community, you know there is no better feeling than succeeding in your endeavors in sport. As a competitor at USA Triathlon events, you have a responsibility to demonstrate the highest standards of sportsmanship per the USA Triathlon Rulebook (Article III, Sections 3.3 and 3.4, Line b.), and as such, should always show respect for the sport, your fellow athletes, race staff, officials, volunteers and spectators. Each individual athlete shares this responsibility, which includes refraining from the use of improper language and conduct detrimental to the community at large. This rule will be strictly enforced and disrespectful language or conduct will not be tolerated.

For more information on USA Triathlon rules and sportsmanship, please reference the USAT Competitive Rules.   

Swim and Water Temperature 

According to Article IV, Rule 4.4, the wetsuit rule is stated as follows: 

“Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wet suit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit.” 

Due to the nature of the Age Group National Championships, no athletes will be permitted to wear a wetsuit if the water temperature exceeds 78 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Latex alergies: If you have a latex allergy, please let USAT staff know and you will be provided with a non-latex swim cap. 

Timing Chip

Timing chips must be returned after the event - they are NOT disposable. If you are participating in multiple races, you will receive a separate chip for each race. Your chip must be returned at the completion of your race at the finish line. If you forget to return your chip, you can return it by mail. Lost chips result in a $95 replacement fee. Mail lost chips to:
